Wedding Planning 101 – Traditional or Modern?

Choosing an aesthetic for your wedding is one of the hardest things to decide on with your spouse-to-be. Selecting colors, a font, and even a theme can set the tone of the wedding. However, the most important element is choosing the style of the wedding venue. Will you go modern or traditional with your venue? This choice will set the stage for the rest of the design elements that you two choose.

Traditional Event Space

Dedicated wedding venues, churches, or hotel event spaces all serve as traditional wedding settings. From a logistics perspective, you can’t go wrong with these choices because they are meant for hosting weddings. Each of these likely also has an in-house event coordinator to work with that will ensure that your big day is as special as you’ve imagined.

However, if you’re looking for something unique with a little more character, you may want to think outside the box. Some couples prefer to get married in a less conventional space though to give guests a different experience and find something more reflective of their own personal styles.

Trendy Wedding Venue

Funky wedding venues like museums, restaurants, and coffee shops are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to trendy wedding venues. Really anywhere you can imagine gathering with friends can serve as a wedding venue if your guests will fit inside.

For the right price, you can typically choose someplace to host your wedding that wouldn’t normally host private events as well. The result is a character-filled, ultra-unique event that can wow friends and family.
However, if these modern ideas are a little too zany for you, you can opt for a venue that bridges the gap between traditional and modern. There are trendy wedding venue options that embody a more traditional feel as well.

Outdoor Weddings

Outdoor weddings are the perfect mix of traditional and modern to please even the most discerning couple. Locations like parks, farms, and family homes serve as a lovely backdrop for weddings while incorporating outdoor scenic beauty. Barn weddings are another popular way to combine wedding aesthetics, bringing together rustic traditional elements with a modern trendy location. You may have to coordinate more details, like finding caterers, bartenders, and portable bathroom providers, but the result is something that will please traditionalists and trendsetters alike.
