Yes, we are! LaughingI feel the same way sometimes—modern weddings are definitely not trending right now.  We’re getting married in a contemporary art museum (all white walls and clean lines) and having a restaurant reception in downtown chicago. Nothing vintage about it.

Yep!  I think I complained about this on another thread somewhere already, ha.  We’re having a cocktailish type wedding as well, on the rooftop terrace of an arts building.  My aim is modern, but not minimalistic.  Colors are mainly gunmetal and crimson (with touches of deep purple and black).

No lace, mismatched tea kettles, mustaches, or mason jars to be seen here Wink.

Yes we are.  We are having a glam, formal wedding.  No twigs or mismatched china or raffia ribbon in site.  Those weddings are all very pretty but it’s getting boring seeing the same thing over and over.

We are! Our theme is modern elegance and its going to be black tie. Our colors are purple, black and platinum. We want it to be hip and fun, so our focus is on food, fashion and music.

OP I LOVE LOVE LOVE, your venue!! Cant wait to see how your wedding turns out!

@morkiemama: This is totally true! I was love love loving the way all the ruffly, vintage weddings looked, but when I started thinking about it for MY wedding I was like, people are gonna be confused when I have pink and brown, super-girly decor when pretty much all I ever wear is simple pieces in classic black with very mimimal accessories. Plus all the “love and romance” crap when we’re really not mushy-in-public” kind of folk.

It’s great if that’s who you are, but I’m glad my identity crisis didn’t last long =)
