@katiedee: agreed! FI and I started planning and originally thought our wedding would be kindof vintage hollywood glamour….then one day, we were like “wth are we doing? This is totally not us!” So we changed everything up, and went with the clean contemporary look we love. Our colors are the colors of our bedroom!
@amusememusically: just found that site the other day. Thank you!! It’s great! It’s one of the only ones I keep going back and looking at!

I don’t like the Anthropologie weddings either. I did at one point, and they are so pretty, but now I’m just tired of them. They all look the same. We’re doing “modern with a vintage twist” because I’m not happy being totally modern or totally vintage. (For example, my e-ring is a contemporary design with a vintage-looking metal. Stuff like that.) I salivate over modern, clean, crisp weddings too.

Thank you! I thought I was the only one who was finding only “vintage inspiration” sites….

Yeah, I went through the “fed up with vintage, show me something different” stage as well. Our wedding is classic- not modern, not vintage, just classic. I wish the blogosphere would show more diversity in weddings. More styles of weddings, more types of people, etc. It’s so one dimensional right now. Offbeat Bride, APW, Modern Canadian Wedding, etc. are better at showing more diversity, but I don’t know that they necessarily helped me with inspiration.

@morkiemama: Yes!! I am late to the thread, but I completely concur — to the point that I’ve mostly given up on finding inspiration on most wedding sites. Modernly Wed is sometimes useful, although they are not as consistently “modern” in what they feature as they could be (and yes, they feature plenty of anthro/vintage/shappy-chic too, sigh).
As a side note, it was a challenge for us to find a venue that had a gorgeous modern feel as well as everything else we wanted (food, space, budget). The place we chose in the end is on the softer side of minimal/modern/contemporary — hopefully our very sleek and clean decor will work with the space.

THis post is funny!! I think the vintage-y weddings are beautiful when done well! But I’m much too dramatic and loud for something so simplistic. So I’ll be doing a glam, modern wedding reception with an ethereal feel (draping, amber lighting, candles, etc)

Oh my goodness…finally! I thought I was alone! OP, thank you so much for this thread. I’m so glad to find some other ladies planning a similar style of wedding. And thanks to everyone who posted inspiration websites!

Ugh I posted yesterday, giving all of the links I’ve found….they aren’t as chock-full of stuff like greenweddingshoes or stylemepretty, but they at least have some VARIETY! I think that’s the main problem I’m seeing…it’s either all “vintage” or all anti-bride/offbeat. I don’t have a problem with either, but why does there seem to be so little in-between?
Let me know what you guys think! (Can you tell I have too much time on my hands?)

We had a hard time finding a modern space that had everything else we wanted too. I wanted the glass pavillion that was in Cannon’s link, but they wanted 10k to rent the place for ceremony and reception….not the best use of our budget. But we found an amazing banquet hall that can be made into what we want.

@MASPA : Yup, it is! We’re having the ceremony there as well.
