Austin Wedding Venue – Allan House
Balancing Old & New
Balancing your wedding with traditional and modern elements is a great way to have a personalized wedding that speaks volumes about your relationship. At The Allan House, Austin Wedding Venue, both modern and traditional decor look lovely.
Some couples want to have their own meaningful experience, while still honoring the past. One way is through the wedding cake, which can be infused with both traditional and more modern exotic flavors. The decor of the cake could use the lucite trend, which is clear acrylic decor, by balancing layers on clear boxes. The lucite trend can also extend to chairs, tables and place settings as well. You could have clear or choose a color to match your wedding colors.
Today’s couples are lucky – no longer are you forced to follow the traditions, your ceremony and reception can be completely your own. Interested in changing up the look of your ceremony aisle? Consider a geometric shaped focal point as your perfect backdrop (like the one in the photo above).
The tradition for opting for wearing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue could make for a fun and trendy option too. Picking a silk blue sash, scarf or jewelry to go against the white of the dress would be quite lovely. Why stick with white at all? Other dress colors are venturing on the wedding design runway. You can even opt for a different ring color instead of a traditional diamond as the focal point. Several brides (even royalty) in the past have gone for blue sapphires and other colored stones.
It can be fun to balance traditional and modern looks in your wedding, especially when you are getting married at our historic, timeless Austin Wedding Venue. With enough creativity, you can make your special day all your own!
