I’m so glad to see this post–sometimes I feel like the only person who is not planning a Stylemepretty-type wedding. Ours will be a pretty formal evening wedding and our colors are black and white.  We don’t have a particularly modern venue, but I always envisioned my wedding as a mix between traditional and modern. Don’t get me wrong, I can drool over Anthropologie-style weddings, but it just isn’t really me.

Hey modern brides, what dress are you wearing or hoping to wear?

I’m doing simple, classic, elegant.  We are getting married in a train station built in 1912, so there is a vintage element, but that’s definitely not the focus. I’m getting sooooo tired of the “style me pretty” wedding.  Do they not realize that EVERY wedding on their blog looks almost the same as the last? BORING!

 

This was my inspiration board:

Some things have obviously evolved…but I guess we’ll see how things turn out next Saturday!

@Zusie: I am still looking for a dress but I like mermaids/ trumpets. My current front runner is Sottero & Midgly’s Adorae, I keep comparing every other dress i try on to it.

I don’t think I could even pull off a vintage wedding. I am not into going to antique stores and I really love bold colors. For our fall wedding, we are using the colors eggplant and crimson. I have some things that are a lighter shade as well. My centerpieces are tissue paper flower wreaths with a vase inside of it that will be filled with water and a tealight floating on top. My other centerpiece is going to be a little glass cube with white fuji mums and purple statice in it. Going to have white linen tablecloths and then purple and red napkins as well as centerpieces to give it a pop of color, but keeping it very simple. We are going to have uplighting in the reception hall that will give it a modern look as well. Don’t know if it is exactly modern, but definitely not vintage.

So funny to see this thread bumped. Our wedding is done now, and I am seriously considering submitting it to a local blog or something like Intimate Weddings. It seems like so many people are frustrated with the lack of diversity in the big blogs. Unfortunately, anything that doesn’t fit their mold will probably never get published there anyway, I still say that the WWW is far to big for so many wedding blogs to be far too narrow.

We did a cross between traditional and modern for our wedding in October and I loved it! Here are some pics from our wedding:

P.S. There was a Star Wars convention at Discovery World the day of our wedding so we bumped into the storm troopers on our way in-we are not crazy Star Wars fanatics who invited them to the wedding!

love seeing this thread bumped.  We’ve had our wedding now and it was the glam and formal affair I’d hoped for.  

I did a full recap with pics for anyone who is interested.

We’re getting married at the Viceroy in Palm Springs. Definitely trying to keep it modern, but with a touch of old Palm Springs vintage.
