Spotlight on: Modern Luxury Weddings

Heard of Modern Luxury, but not sure what the hype is all about? Or perhaps you’ve seen the styling, but are not quite sure how to recreate this for your own wedding day? Don’t panic. We’ve got the full run down for you.

Opulence in the most enchanting way

Modern Luxe weddings ooze class and style. With soft tones accented by monochrome finishes, you’ll often find creams, beige and warm colours complementing brickwork and more simplistic surroundings. To visualise what we mean, take a look at this recent set up at the gorgeous Glenham Hall by Norfolk and Suffolk wedding planner, Hardesty Event Design.

Dress to impress!

Modern luxe weddings often lend themselves to a tastefully refined black-tie dress code. You’ll frequently find the groomsmen in full black-tie attire, and bridesmaids in an array of muted tones – think cream, black or champagne. This makes for incredibly dramatic group shots and ensures the bridal party stands out from the crowd on the day as a classy, chic bunch! Inspiration for this can be found whilst swooning over one of our planning client’s wedding albums on our portfolio page.

Brides can also add in a contemporary day-to-night switch-up by wearing a classic veil for the ceremony, changing to a modern, embellished hairpiece when it’s time to head to the dancefloor. 

Timeless styling with a lasting impact

Attention to detail is the key to making modern luxury styling a success. A black-tie wedding can be elevated by an elegantly understated monochrome tablescape, working with rich greens and creamy white florals. Inspiration for this can be found in our stunning setup at Glenham Hall. Some couples also choose to utilise dried flowers for bouquets, allowing neutral tones to be accented by pops of monochrome.

Pared-back décor

Let the dramatic details do the talking! The surroundings you choose for this setup can be minimalistic, including anything from industrial chic to fashionable urban pub style venues. The high-end luxe elements carried through from the wedding party’s attire and tasteful tablescapes will ensure the whole vibe is effortlessly cool.

Height of sophistication

Why not add a touch of fun with a champagne tower? Simple, but effective, this classy set up adds heaps of fun for guests as they watch the newlyweds celebrate in style! Adorn the area with beautiful florals and a champagne tower can become a stunning centrepiece. It really is the ultimate way to gather guests before the first dance, or even at the end of the confetti line!

Our verdict? Modern luxe styling absolutely has our hearts. If you’re considering a wedding setup like this, we say go for it! Need some more advice? Book a consultation with Hardesty Event Design today to see how we can help you.
