A Modern Wedding: Contemporary Chic And Stylish

A Modern Wedding

Sophisticated and chic, a modern wedding theme uses charcoal, grey, and silver colours with classic white to create a clean, crisp and – above all – elegant look. It’s particularly complementary to a city wedding and can include modern touches such as light up lettering, gaslights, mirrors, or other city-inspired features such as vintage bike décor or men’s umbrellas. A venue with brick or ironwork can complement your wedding’s theme perfectly – either for the ceremony or reception.

For a modern wedding, the flowers will follow the monochromatic theme, too – keep them white and opt for something simple yet beautiful. Flowers such as roses or orchids have a simple form and structure yet look effortlessly stunning. Less is more with this theme, so for the reception, keep it classy and elegant, and decorate with traditional starched white tablecloths. Add touches of silver with other additions such as the chairs or different glasses for each fine wine; this creates a dash of sparkle and magic to the otherwise clean, contemporary theme.

As for attire, the bride will dazzle in a duchess satin dress that thrives on simplicity and grace. Her bridesmaids will shimmer in silk taffeta and silver sashes.  Pageboys, too, can handsomely don taffeta and silver sashes, making for a perfect pair to the bridesmaids. The key to a modern wedding is pared down opulence, and the monochrome charcoals, silvers and white add to this unassuming yet luxurious theme.

For your photography, consider a mixture of colour and black and white photography that will make your wedding album look modern and stylish.

A modern wedding can be the perfect theme for a stylish, city-loving couple; it is perfectly suited to those looking for simplicity over extravagance. Explore your wedding options with The Little Wedding Company, where grace and ease reign supreme!
