Planning A Modern Wedding: The Ins And Outs

Planning a modern wedding isn’t easy, by any means. You not only need to make sure that your wedding is going to make you and your other half happy, you need to make sure that you’ll be impressing your guests and keeping them occupied. Here are some pointers you can use for planning a modern wedding:

Pick a Really Unusual Venue

As you’re going for an ultra modern wedding, why not pick a really unusual wedding venue to excite your guests? You could go for somewhere like an aquarium, a park, a museum – whatever suits you and your partner as a couple. Get creative with your venue and you’ll all have a great day!

Decorate With Plenty of Flowers and Petals

The most modern weddings are nearly always decorated with plenty of gorgeous flowers and petals. You can make pretty much anywhere look pretty if you scatter flowers and petals everywhere. Just look back to Ross and Emily’s wedding in Friends. They got married in a broken down church covered in petals and tealight candles. It looked really pretty. Let’s forget the fact that Ross said another woman’s name!


Get on the Social Media Bandwagon

Social media has taken the world by storm over the years, so you’d be silly not to get on the social media bandwagon. Rather than waiting until the day is over to upload your pictures, let people see what’s happening as you go along! You can use apps like Snapchat and download Snapchat geofilters to give everybody a peek into your big day!

Go Ombre With Your Bridal Party

Ombre is another huge modern trend, whether it’s nails, lips, or your hair, everybody is doing it! Why not go ombre with your bridal party? Choose a colour and have your bridesmaids wear different shades of that colour to create a cool ombre effect.

Don’t Stick to Tradition

Modern weddings hardly ever stick to tradition, so make sure you avoid any that don’t suit you as a couple. You don’t even need to wear a wedding dress if you don’t want to, as long as you’re wearing something that suits you. You could even have your bridesmaids wear something they’ve chosen themselves, maybe with one colour tying it all in together.

Branches, Feathers, and Other Textures

Including lots of texture is a good idea, as it adds interest to your venue and makes the decor look more exciting. Instead of using flowers on your tables, why not use spraypainted branches? You could also use feathers, and other textures for something a little different.

Planning a modern wedding is all about thinking outside of the box. It’s about assessing what is important to you and making sure your day is all about you as a couple, rather than what other people might expect. Have fun with your day and get creative. Make it worth remembering forever! If you have some brilliant modern wedding ideas that you’d like to share, leave them in the comments section. See you soon!
