For couples that love all things contemporary, consider a modern wedding theme that embraces design elements from the 1920s and beyond. Heavily curate your wedding palette and decor to achieve a sophisticated and memorable celebration.
Here are 10 modern wedding themes we love:
Modern minimalist: Cut down on over-the-top decor with a wedding theme that embraces the less is more approach. Use simple shapes, geometry, and small pops of color to reduce distractions.
Formal contemporary: Achieve a sophisticated and modern look by elevating the basics. Bring this look together using draped fabrics, tall centerpieces, and crystal chandeliers.
Postmodern industrial: Transform an old factory or abandoned warehouse into a sleek glimpse into the future. Get creative with your vision of what a postmodern world looks like.
Feminine maximalist: With this wedding theme, you’ll want to be colorful and loud. More is more so play up the quirky displays and dramatic touches. You can add feminine flair to your maximalism display with pink and purple cascading florals.
Geode: This wedding theme really rocks. Use geode designs on your cake and invites and display agate place cards to achieve this stone look.
Mid-century modern: Embrace burnt orange and 1970s retro furniture with this fun wedding theme. You can have fun finding decor at vintage markets and thrift stores.
Art deco: If you’re a fan of the Gatsby-era, embrace this timeless design theme full of sequins and glitter. It’s the perfect time for a champagne shower and a color palette of white, gold, and black.
Art history: If you are looking to throw a tasteful and refined celebration, consider hosting your ceremony and reception at a small art gallery or museum. You can commemorate art history throughout your decor and design.
Pop art: Made famous by artist Andy Warhol, this loud wedding theme is perfect for pop culture enthusiasts. Mix in decor elements inspired by the pop art movement for a wedding aesthetic that is anything but boring.
Preppy: If you are hosting your wedding at a country club, you can combine modern patterns and bright accents to achieve a preppy design.
