From dominating the home décor industry to inspiring influencers worldwide, mid-century modern style can now be found in almost every aspect of our lives – including weddings! We can’t get enough of this trend’s eclectic retro vibes, so you can imagine our excitement when we started to see mid-century modern details popping up in some of our favorite weddings. Mid-century modern style is easy to channel with any wedding style due to its mix-and-match nature, so read on to discover our 6 favorite ways to incorporate mid-century modern decor in your wedding!

1. Modern Greenery

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to refresh your wedding with mid-century modern style is by adding modern greenery. You can offer your wedding trendy, outdoorsy vibes by scattering broad leaves, textured ferns, and potted fiddle-leaf fig trees among your wedding’s floral design! A greenery-forward design can be used in everything from your bouquets to your lounge areas, so speak to your florist about this easily-achieved trend.

2. Eclectic Minimalist Design

Couples planning modern weddings usually strive for minimalist decor vibes, but in order to achieve mid-century modern wedding style, an extra element of flair is needed to convey the trend. Enter: eclectic minimalist design! This design style incorporates modern trends like metallic details and industrial spaces with old-school elements and quirky, unexpected decor. To achieve eclectic minimalist vibes, try pairing your cool, modern lounge area furniture with fun vintage knick knacks from a thrift store!

3. Tea-Length Wedding Dresses

As you’ve probably gathered from its name, mid-century modern pulls a lot of inspiration from retro 1950s and 1960s styles. If you want to go the extra length to convey this trend, consider wearing a tea-length wedding dress! There’s nothing quite as elegant and cool as a tea-length dress’s shorter hemline, plus it would be the ultimate style statement that ties together your wedding’s mid-century modern wedding decor.

5. Hairpin Legs

Hairpin legs are one of our favorite ways to incorporate mid-century modern vibes at your wedding. As one of the most sought-after mid-century modern details, retro hairpin legs are the perfect way to pull your mid-century modern look together. You can DIY this trend by adding hairpin legs to practically any piece of furniture, or if you’re borrowing items from a rental company, ask them if they have any details with hairpin legs!

6. Retro Mixed Seating

The key to channeling mid-century modern vibes is to combine old and new decor elements. What better way to convey this than with retro mixed seating? You can achieve this look by using mixed ceremony and reception seating, such as long benches mixed with chairs, lounge pillows, and poufs, or setting up a reception lounge area where you can let your creative side go wild! If you’d love to incorporate this style but your venue only offers one type of chair, consider hiring a vintage rental company to help you mix up your seating options.

  1. I really love the tea length dress to be sure! It could be just me though, as I have seen a number of long dresses so far.
