There are a million and one ways to incorporate a wedding theme into your venue. Whether you choose to take a subtle color scheme approach or a fully committed all-in theme, there’s a way to embed your vision into your big day. While vintage themes are popular, recently there has been a rise in a modern chic trend. We have brought together chic wedding decorations done right for your inspiration.
Play with Shapes and Sizes
One way to keep your wedding theme chic and interesting is by embedding different sizes and shapes into your wedding decorations and reception centerpieces. Without necessarily throwing off the symmetry or balance, mix things up for a unique and playful style.

Keep your wedding modern by combining matching bold colors. Oranges, yellows, reds and purples are great for a chic wedding theme. This can include your centerpieces, place cards, wedding cake decorations or the overall décor.

Mismatch Bridesmaids Dresses
Your bridesmaids are all different sizes and shapes, so why shouldn’t their dresses be too? Even if you want your bridesmaid dresses to match in color, that does not mean they have to match in shape. The different types of dresses in your bridal party will not only help your girls feel more comfortable, but it will also add to your unique theme.

Another way to up the modern chic theme of your wedding is by having lots of glass decorations! Of course, you don’t want that to end up in broken glass everywhere, especially if there will be children at the wedding, so make sure these decorations are out of reach or too grand to fiddle with. You can search for a venue with glass walls, use ghost chairs at the reception or ceremony, have chandelier lighting or have a glass case for cards at your gift table.

Another key in a great modern chic themed wedding is loud floral décor. While it’s true that flowers are great for decorating any wedding venue, modern-themed weddings generally have big arrangements with fun colors or alternatively, long and surprisingly simple (but still unique) plants.

Another way to bring a chic theme to your wedding is by upping the glam. Add some gold, silver and maybe glitter to your decorations for a modern glamorous touch—but be careful! When not done properly, glitter and gold can make otherwise nice decorations, look tacky. Consider going with a toned-down glam by replacing glitter with a lot of candles and lights.

Black and White
While modern and chic tends to be associated with bold colors, you can change up the guest dress code by throwing in a white and black attire theme. This will create a stark difference from traditional wedding looks. You can also create a black and white theme with your wedding décor.
