Mid-Century Modern Wedding

Retro is all the rage and we’re here for it! The key to celebrating in the style of the ’50s and ’60s is all about the pretty patterns, cool color blocking, and minimalistic trends. Flair mixed in with a relaxed energy is pure mid-century magic! Get ready to get groovy with an effortless era that’ll have you swaying down the aisle.

Think lounge furniture with a twist of sophistication. Use a mix of floral cushions, upholstered chairs, and pastel diner chic seating.  Purposely mismatched in all its glory!  

In keeping with the simple theme of the day, your flowers should be beautiful but make a subtle statement. Create arrangements with cactus’ and ferns for texture, vibrant hues like tangerine and green, and tall stems that will remind you of wildflowers straight from the flower market.  Potted plants are another easy way to help fill space without breaking the bank!

Thrift shop trinkets make for incredibly on-point décor when it comes to perfecting the aura of your space. Some weathered books, throw pillows, quirky framed prints, or even an old-school bicycle for a center-of-the-room prop, will do wedding wonders.   

Bold geometric patterns with plenty of pastel colors can be everywhere from your cake to your table linens, to your ceremony arch! Including the designs in your place cards and menus are also cute additions to the background vibe. Go for colors like soft turquoise, peachy orange, and violet that will all say gorgeous throwback!

And maybe our favorite part of the mid-century modern style? The Birdie tea-length gown that’ll have you feeling like a modern Audrey Hepburn! Silky satin in a short and sweet A-line silhouette, there’s just the right amount of bounce in the skirt and a sexy mesh sculptured v-neckline for a tailored twist.
