Modern Wedding Ideas You’ll Love  

These simple modern wedding ideas will show you that planning a modern-themed wedding doesn’t need to be complicated! As a wedding photographer who is obsessed with modern wedding inspirations, I decided to share some tips from a modern and vibrant styled shoot at The Holly Vault Collection.

A Modern and Vibrant Holly Vault Styled shoot

Inspired by beautiful colors of merlot, navy and coral, this shoot at the Holly Vault Chapel and Venue One Eleven styled by Design Quintessentials Weddings & Event was featured by WeddingDay Magazine!

In fact, Ching and her team had a great vision as to what elements and details they wanted to incorporate. In addition, the delicate details in the unique geode wedding cake and the modern coral tone floral split cake took this shoot to the next level. After reading these modern wedding ideas, you would be surprised at how easy it is to style a modern-themed wedding on your own!

Set The Tone With Invitation  

To begin with, your invitations should always match your wedding theme and color. The pop of coral in the invitation suite and menu gives your guests a hint to the ‘tone’ of your elegant and romantic wedding. To top it off, the Paper Creation added an extra personal touch by featuring an illustration of the venue, Holly Vault, as well as the floral elements. 

Use Ceremony Backdrop To Create A Focal Point

Next, having a floral wedding arch with wow-worthy blooms makes all the difference. What’s more romantic than saying your vows in front of a dreamy backdrop?  Ching-Ya Tan of Design Quintessentials is the talented florist behind this creation.

Hanging Greenery

As an alternative to florals, greenery wedding décor is a budget-friendly way to incorporate nature and style to your venues. Similarly, adding some tall candles will give the wedding a complete and more lush look. 

Hanging Amaranthus Adds An Artful Touch

To my surprise, many brides have never heard of this unique beautiful plant. But this floral accents adds an airy and exquisite movement to your wedding bouquet. This bouquet included everything from garden rose, anemone, spray rose, lisianthus, ranunculus to amaranthus.

For brides planning a modern spring/summer wedding, bookmark this modern arrangement by Design Quintessentials as a reference! By the way, a little tip from the florist-request garden roses as they have more petals than regular roses!   

Have Fun With The Cake

Most importantly, a simple way to spoil your guests is to pick an amazing cake! In fact, the delicate details in these unique geode wedding cake and geometric cake gems will DEFINITELY add the WOW factor on your wedding day!

For a minimalist bride, I would recommend an elegant coral pink painted buttercream to create a romantic vibe. From custom masterpiece to sweet simplicity, Sweet Bree’s Bakeshop has it all!

If you want to make a little more of a splash, consider a floral split cake! A floral split wedding cake is another unique and modern way to showcase the excellent craftsmanship of your sweet centerpiece! This creative was by Kelle of Flower Smith Studio. She is a pro at decorating cake with flowers.

Get Artsy With Acrylic

Give your reception an artsy touch by having an artistic acrylic guest list. Make them feel special with elegant calligraphy on a large sign.  Additionally, it can even serve as conversation starter!

To add a more complete contemporary look, choose clear acrylic pedestal risers. The clear color ensure your guests can appreciate all of the beauty of the floral arrangements without distraction. 

Modern Bridal Updos? Keep It Low And Timeless

Finally, loosely pinned and flowy bridal updos soften your features. Also, don’t forget to let a few tendrils fall along your face. This ‘do was styled by Mary L Simmons Hair & Makeup
