For any newly engaged couple the prospect of wedding planning can be intimidating especially if you have no experience within the sector or perhaps haven’t even attended a wedding yourself. One of the first things to think is what type of wedding you’d like to have and there are two main styles of wedding, modern and traditional. The choice is down to the couple and many factors can impact their decision process. Modern weddings are becoming increasingly popular due to the flexibility and the fact that they are easier to plan.
Benefits of a modern wedding
There are a few benefits to having a modern wedding rather than a traditional wedding; we have mentioned the fact that there is more flexibility with a modern wedding which is a big positive if you are still unsure which to go for. With this flexibility you also get the added benefit that you can decorate the venue how you wish. You don’t need to necessarily be religious when choosing a modern wedding, whereas if you choose to get married in a church you will have to prove that you are religious and that you attend church. You can also choose a venue based on your guest numbers and the style of wedding that you want.
If you both love contemporary design then you will be looking for a wedding that will reflect this passion. We have put together some modern wedding themes for contemporary loving couples!
Choosing the perfect venue
There are many options when it comes to choosing your ideal venue and if you are planning on a modern wedding then you will want your venue to reflect this. There are plenty of contemporary venues that can be transformed into versatile and stylish spaces which are perfect for creating a really unique ceremony space. The great thing about these venues is that if you add a simple backdrop, it creates a blank canvass for you to get creative and make the space your own.
Acrylic chairs are a great addition for any wedding but especially for a modern themed wedding. They will help bring a touch of elegance to a modern wedding by creating the illusion that there are no chairs there. This style of chairs would suit a very modern venue such as a gallery or event space, or even perhaps an industrial style venue. Within London there are lots of modern spaces that can be hired for your wedding.
Minimalist wedding dress
Another fantastic idea for brides who love a modern theme is a simple, minimalist style dress. This style of dress is perfect for quirky brides who have a passion for the latest fashion. A great way to compliment this is to have bridesmaids wearing mismatched instead of matching dresses. Traditionally the bridal party would all wear the same colour and style dress, so a great way to inject some modern theme into this is to have your party wearing different colours and style dresses. You could follow this trend with the groom and groomsmen too and each one could wear a different coloured suit.
A modern wedding will allow you to have flexibility and create the backdrop of your dreams. One way to do this is to use drapes to bring a touch of colour and elegance into your day. You can also use greens in your décor instead of flowers. This could be in the form of table decorations or you could even decide to have displays around the room.
Choose supplier that fit your style
As with the choice for venues the choice for suppliers is huge too and if you have a specific style in mind it would be a good idea to choose a supplier that fits this. If you are unsure where to start to look for your suppliers there are a lot of alternative wedding fairs out there who will have unique and quirky suppliers attending.
Create an interesting menu
The food you choose on your wedding day can have a big impact on your guests experience and is a chance to show some creativity and bring in a modern twist. Most chefs within wedding venues will love the chance to be creative with a wedding menu so it’s worth arranging a meeting with them and see what they can create. Let them know that you want to create something that is not only tasty but with a modern twist.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
