Juxtaposition always makes things feel richer and more interesting. Weddings are filled with romanticism and soft details. Adding the contrasting style of modern geometric details can enhance the ethereal tone of the event while adding a whole lot of personality and unique design to your wedding day. Not sure where to begin? Think industrial looks, straight lines, and interesting angles.
Your wedding is the perfect time to dust off those high school geometry skills, except this time it’ll be fun and maybe a little bit gilded. You can add ambiance to the space by shopping for square, triangular, or modular vessels to suspend in the air. You might even consider hanging them from your ceremony arch for an air of modern romance, or you can even go for a simple linear ceremony arch.
For the reception, you can incorporate these pieces by laying them out on tables. Fill them with organic elements like stunning florals, succulents, river rocks, or pebbles for a mix of natural and industrial accents. Choosing geometric elements doesn’t mean you have to forgo your other decorating plans. You can use geometric pieces as decorating additions, punching up the tables with the wedding cake or wedding signage, or wedding name cards.
We love the ways brides are bringing geometric accents into their wedding day looks, too! Modern dress designs often have flairs of geometric details. Striped fabric, cutouts, and v necks all highlight the modern simplicity of the gown. For a subtle sparkly flourish, you can add geometric shapes with your wedding jewelry.
And as always, your venue can be the start to your desired look. To make decorating a little easier, seek out venues with ornate ceilings, Art Deco details, and modern spaces that offer clean lines, interesting patterns, or unique details.
