The best way you can craft your wedding into a cool, modern celebration is with your décor. When selecting a venue for a modern wedding, there are a few avenues you can choose from. The first would be to book a modern building to house your celebration. Selecting a venue that already has a minimalist and modern edge can do some of the heavy liftings of the design for your big day. Pampass and dried flowers are in trend and go well with a modern theme.

If you want to have a modern wedding day look, look for sleek and minimal dress shapes with bold and exciting accessories for a contemporary touch. Dramatic capes, sheer gloves, or even colorful additions can step up a clean bridal look. Brides also can consider wearing a chic suit or changing into a fun and flashy short style for the wedding reception. Grooms can mirror the classic sleek lines of their modern wedding decor in a tuxedo, or choose a more contemporary suit style that fits into the palette of their nuptial celebration.

Start by selecting a venue that resembles the charm of classic times. It will be the perfect backdrop for your sleek aesthetic, cool fashion pieces to take you from your rehearsal dinner to your after party, and contemporary décor touches to complete the look of your stylish ceremony and reception. This could be an art museum, a mid-modern home, or a bright glass conservatory to surround your ceremony and reception with a cool and sleek aesthetic.
Bold sculptural shapes, clear lucite materials, mirrored elements, and a minimalist approach to design can steer you in the right direction to curate your big day. Ghost chairs can be an excellent addition to your ceremony, while black plates and flatware can add a bold modern feel to your reception tablescape. As for florals, consider using more greenery to shape your design. Baby’s breath is also a unique flower that can create structure within your wedding day design.
