Contemporary Wedding

Today's brides are planning their wedding communicating on the Internet, and live an active lifestyle juggling career, social and personal interests. What they do still have in common with the brides from earlier centuries, however, is the need to have the absolutely perfect wedding day. And "perfect" for a modern day bride means a wedding that is increasingly creative and personal.  

Because of this, Wedding Themes have become increasingly popular bringing about three popular bridal trends with new interpretations: contemporary, royal garden, and romantic sophistication.

The key to pulling off a coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as a special flower, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

The Fashion:

The Contemporary gown is a body-conscious column cut completely on the bias with trumpet hem in four-ply silk jersey of penne velvet or matte finished satin.  Keep this in mind when your shopping:  

The Bridal Bouquet:

Contemporary bouquets are inspired by unconventional ideas, styles and patterns and are designed with no specific geometric form. Contemporary bouquets represent the individuality of the bride and are perfect for a sophisticated, cosmopolitan style wedding. They're simplistic but have the added grace of asymmetrical design. 

Pristine callas are often a major design element, unexpectedly combined with freesia and punctuated with lily grass. 

Bouquets are usually created with flowers that have definite form and add character to the bouquet such as: Phalaenopsis Orchids, Tulips, Roses, and  Calla Lilies.

Beautiful contemporary bridal bouquets can be achieved by arranging a cluster of blooms at the top with other blooms hung in a downward-facing position along with cascading greenery like: ivy, blades of lily grass, hanging Amaranthus, millet, strings of spruce cones, gold mesh ribbon, & etc.

For a contemporary wedding, one style that has become increasingly popular in the past few years is a bouquet designed with large yellow sunflowers, or a posy bouquet that features a variety of dainty, colorful flowers. 

Be sure to work with a qualified florist that has experience doing contemporary arrangements. They can take your wedding colors, wedding gown, and personal preference and blend them together to create the perfect contemporary wedding bouquets. By working with her florist, the bride-to-be can start to paint the picture of her "perfect" wedding day and feel confident that it will be carried out with elegance and ease by a professional who knows how to beautifully translate her personal style.

The Cake:

Round is classic, but square and hexagonal are more current. “A hexagonal shape immediately makes a cake look different,” says Betty Baird, of Sweet Tiers in Palm Beach, Florida. Alternating tiers—a round layer topped with a hexagon, then topped with another round—has caught on too. Tiers of uneven heights, such as a tall top and bottom and shorter middle layers, also give cakes contemporary chic. Sherry Yard, executive pastry chef for Spago Beverly Hills in California, says that when one of her triangular cakes is wheeled out after dinner, guests go crazy.
