Textured Attire

This theme is all about embracing various textures, and it’s easy to incorporate this into your aisle style. I love the idea of wearing a gown adorned with huge 3D florals and textured embroidery. You could wrap up warm in a brightly-coloured cardigan or jacket – there are no rules when it comes to your bridal look!

The groom-to-be will look handsome in a velvet jacket teamed with casual trousers and a colourful bow tie. He’ll look very on-trend.

Unusual Blooms

Take inspiration from magnificent sculptures and opt for an unusual and untraditional shape for your bridal bouquet. Choosing large, oversized blooms in an array of beautiful vibrant hues will instantly give your wedding look a modern art vibe. Ask your florist for untraditional bridal bouquet flowers – this theme is all about being different!

Suitable Setting

When it comes to a venue for your modern art wedding celebrations, what could be more apt than a chic gallery or museum? Walls covered in incredible artwork will help set the scene for your big day. If you choose a blank canvas wedding venue you can style it with your own quirky decorations, details and ideas.

Colour Coordinated

Create a paint-splattered backdrop for your ceremony or for your guests to enjoy as a DIY photo booth. You’ll capture lots of magical memories that are full of colour and happiness.

Take inspiration from your backdrop and ask your cake maker to create a magnificent masterpiece covered in colourful icing, with intricate patterns and striking shapes. It will stand out at your wedding reception and tie with your stationery, backdrop and blooms.

Be Bold

Don’t be afraid to go bold with the colour scheme of your modern art wedding styling, especially when it comes to your wedding tables. Use charger plates in shades of rich teal, burnt orange or even fire red. They’ll add instant colour to your reception and your guests will love the fact it’s different to a traditional wedding place setting.

A modern art wedding theme is bursting at the seams with happiness, personality and fun, so it’s the perfect fit if you want to shout about your love from the rooftops!
