Modern Wedding Venue Meets Texas Hill Country
A new year brings new engagements, new reasons to celebrate, and new trends! If you’re looking to host a wedding this year, there is no better place than the Texas Hill Country, with its scenic views and serene setting. For couples with interest in all things current, a modern wedding theme is a great way to showcase your love for contemporary design. Your wedding should be a reflection of who you are and if you’re a lover of all things fresh and trending, a modern wedding is perfect for you! So just how do you host a modern wedding in a sea of rustic styled venues? We turned to the Texas Hill Country’s newest wedding venue, which touts a beautifully modern space, Prima Vista, for advice on how to give your wedding a contemporary twist.
Selecting your wedding venue
Your first step should be finding your perfect wedding venue! For a modern wedding, choose an undeniably contemporary place. Finding a space that lends itself to your wedding style will help you avoid having to adapt the space with unnecessary decor. At Prima Vista, you’ll notice clean lines, vaulted ceilings, a gorgeous contemporary chandelier, and an overall refined feel of the space that will fit your modern aesthetic.
Go minimal with your wedding dress
Incorporate your wedding dress to match your minimalist modern wedding style. The Moonlight and Moss dress this bride is wearing is simple but undeniably stunning! To take it a step further, outfit your bridal party in various bridesmaid dresses. Whether you let your bridesmaids pick their dresses or give them some light parameters, like staying within a specific color or style, this will add a whimsical element to your overall theme.
Set the tone with stationary
What better way to send the message of your modern themed wedding than with your invitations? Invitations are a pivotal element in setting your wedding theme and letting your guests know what to expect on the day of the wedding. Design your invitations with bold text set against a blank space for a minimal modern design. If your wedding is more geometrically modern, opt for a design like this couple did from Lazy Creek Designs.
Use a simple backdrop for your wedding ceremony
The elements of modern design are sleek lines, blank space, and a sophisticated color palette. Keep this in mind when selecting a backdrop for your ceremony. While selecting a venue take into consideration its natural beauty and what organic elements you can incorporate. A great ceremony space should have a foundation to work off to eliminate over decorating.
Turn to greenery instead of florals
Add some freshness to your reception by creating centerpieces that overflow of greenery rather than the traditional flowers. One of the best ways to add a contemporary feel to your table settings is to use arrangements filled with vines, leaves, and other lush green foliage. You don’t have to ditch the flowers entirely, but instead of them being the main focus, incorporate them into your greenery. On top of that, creating arrangements that vary in height will help give your table dimension while not overwhelming the space. This allows guests to easily interact and mingle during the wedding reception.
Give your planner direction
Help your wedding planner stay on theme with your modern style by selecting a few design-oriented keywords. A few buzzwords to pull inspiration from are clean, geometric, minimal, simplicity. The beauty of choosing a few descriptive words is that they will help everyone stay on theme to ensure your wedding exceeds your vision. At Prima Vista, your package includes a Day-of-Coordinator to help your wedding planner with the execution and organization of the details, so your special day goes off without a hitch!
Don’t be afraid of negative space
Negative space is a crucial modern design element. Often people can feel they need to fill their reception table space. Instead, create visual interest with clean lines, striking colors, and embrace the negative space. Stay true to your design keywords and design your tablescapes to feature decor that matches while staying simple and sophisticated.
