4 Ways to Put a Modern Spin on Classic Wedding Traditions

Cutting the cake with your groom or your first dance are traditional wedding details that rarely go out of style. They are also cherished customs that make for a memorable wedding day. But what if you’re wanting to break away from these classic traditions and put a more modern spin on your special day? Here are a few ways you and your fiancé can shake things up and make these classic wedding traditions a little more modern.

 Spruce up your invitations

While traditional invitations stand the test of time, it can be fun to incorporate a bit of today’s style and trends into the design of your invitations. Current stationery trends are mimicking interior design and fashion trends. This means they are using popular colors, bold patterns, and materials such as brass and leather. If you want to add a little flare to your traditional wedding invitations, try pairing a formal script with bold colors or a funky print. You could also try incorporating a unique print surface into your invitations. This will help your invitations stand out and be more unique.

 Ring stacking

If you’re looking to put a modern twist on your classic engagement ring, try stacking wedding bands. You can do this to show off your unique style or simply just to make a statement. Ring stacking is also a great way to celebrate different milestones with your partner. Whether it’s an anniversary or the birth of a child, you can celebrate these beautiful moments for a lifetime with special rings. While some brides prefer wearing two bands with their engagement ring in the middle for symmetry, other brides  love the symbol of their ring being sealed in on both sides.

Go architectural with your flowers

Traditional round or mound style florals are being passed over by brides for styles that show more of an architectural, stylized approach. Today, it’s less about the size and colors of your floral displays and more about the style and details of your decor. Use your flowers to create personality and texture from within the designs and not just the flowers themselves.

Upgrade your standard furniture pieces

If you’re looking to modernize your venue, you may want to consider ditching the standard chairs and tables that come with the venue. Instead go for more visually appealing furniture pieces to give the space a more elevated and modern look. When choosing between metals (silver, gold, rose gold), let go of the concept of everything matching and mix it up. When it comes to modernizing a seemingly traditional style, balance is always the key!

The biggest secret behind throwing a fun, modern wedding is to focus on personalization and surround yourself with your loved ones. There is no right or wrong way in choosing the perfect flowers, venue, or furniture pieces as long as it’s a representative of your and your partner’s style.
