When choosing an estate location for your wedding, there are an endless amount of options, each unique in their own way. Although rustic ranch weddings and romantic garden weddings have been extremely popular with such blogs as Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes, you may also want to entertain the option of a chic and contemporary modern mansion wedding. Take a look below to see some of our top pics and tips for a wedding at a modern mansion.
Let your Modern Mansion's Architecture Inspire Your Wedding Aesthetic
After selecting a unique estate wedding location, it is important to begin to create an experience for your wedding guests. Take in the architecture of your estate, including the location's surroundings, colors, and exterior elements to inspire your event theme and decor. By nodding to the estate's architecture, your guests will enjoy your wedding celebration in a harmonious environment.
Above is the Glass House Estate in Palm Springs, California. This estate's architecture and interior design illustrate the true essence of palm springs: modern architecture, bold and bright colors, and a focus-drawing aqua blue pool. To create a true modern Palm Springs wedding, highlight the bold colors and contemporary style, as is shown in this Modern Wedding from Wedding Chicks.
Choose Chic & Modern Apparel for your Wedding Party
Although there is a certain charm to an antiqued lace wedding dress or a full three-piece suit for men, it is important to keep the wedding apparel clean & chic to complement you entire wedding theme. Try to harness fashion forward or retro vintage trends, chic lines, and a specific color palate for your event. If you have chosen bold colors for your wedding or a location that is modern and contemporary, try to keep this all in mind when selecting each item of the bridal party's apparel.
Don't Be Afraid to Add Personal Touches
Modern Mansions can be the perfect blank slate for many event themes, but they can quickly transition to "too simple" or "devoid of warmth" if you do not add personal touches into the wedding decor. Clean lines, furnishings, and decor or fabulous, but they can also occasionally look generic, so don't be afraid to add personal touches, such as framed black and white family photos, nods to your history as a couple, or elements that reflect you as a couple. These touches will not only warm the space with personality, but will make sure that your wedding is uniquely you.
