We are returning to our Modernistic inspired celebration this afternoon to look at how you can perfectly set the scene with your decor and to provide you with our suggestions for the best suppliers and those must buy items.
DECOR & DETAILS

This look works best with simple decor complemented with a few stand out items to act as focal points in your blank canvas space so think about sculptures, mobiles and backdrops to wow your guests, interspersed with low key touches like simple glass votives. There are no rules here so this style of wedding is great for the creative soul; consider creating exaggerated and asymmetrical displays with 3D geometric shapes; giant shapes all in neutral shades would look amazing hanging from the ceiling or popping out the wall in a dramatic backdrop. Alternatively, I love the stacked squares on the table display above; their stark white allows the green of the floral elements to really pop, creating a high impact scene.
Focus on strong, solid textures like acrylic, rusted metal and twisted wire to create a striking yet beautiful look. This modern look can take an almost futuristic stance by challenging expectation and utilising unusual shapes for everyday objects so be brave!

Paper items should be simple and stylish in design, focusing on luxurious materials. I’m thinking letterpress invitations with a strong focus on typography and maybe some subtle geometric shapes. Embossing can also be highly impactful for a raw but beautiful look.
A scrolling yet modern calligraphy would also work well here and don’t limit your imagination just to paper pretty. If your venue permits, opt for a personalised wall decal or why not consider using vinyls instead of more traditional place names, as we did at the LoveLuxe launch event this Summer.
STRUCTURAL FLORAL DESIGN

The key to your floral design is sculpture; opting for a muted palette but interesting shapes will complement your styling perfectly. Consider air plants, succulents, tillandsia and cacti and present them in quirky vessels ranging from unusually shaped vases to the wildly unconventional such as a white stiletto!
Or for the ultimate in modern statements, you could always opt for a metal bouquet with a few sparkling crystals to add a little luxe to the affair.
WHERE TO BUY YOUR MODERNISTIC DECOR & DETAILS
1. Hand crafted in Italy by designer Matteo Cibic, these gorgeous planters

2. The signature hand illustrated calligraphy style of BerinMade
would add a beautiful and contemporary touch to your day – opt for paper pieces, wall decals, vinyl or a combination of them all.

5. Stationery boutiques like Canvas
perfectly embody this modern style and although they are based in South Africa, take commissions from brides the world over. Or for someone closer to home, try up-and-coming design studio Baker & Broome
