Rich in history and steeped in detail, Boston is home to some of the country’s most interesting and diverse architecture. The bustling metropolis can cater to a vast array of styles, whether traditional, eclectic, or modern. As Boston wedding planners, we are constantly tasked with not only pairing the perfect venue to the style of the couple but transforming that venue into the space of their dreams. 

In this blog, we look at the modern wedding, how to best cater to that style, and the details for perfectly executing something so simple yet elegant. 

Luxury Modern Weddings –– Style Over Substance 

When you think of ‘modern,’ the first thing that comes to mind is simple, clean lines, nothing too over the top or dramatic, neutral in tone, and with an understated elegance. Typically, when a couple designates their wedding style as modern, they’re looking for quality and luxurious sophistication. Style over substance, if you will. 

Venue Options are Endless 

When creating a luxury modern wedding in Boston, there is no shortage of venue options. A vast array of luxury hotels immediately comes to mind–beautiful and elegant spaces that can also accommodate the couple’s guests. The Four Seasons and the Newbury Boston, which both have captivating, unparalleled views of the Boston Public Garden; the Fairmont Copley Plaza, with its gorgeous architecture and grand ballroom; and a newcomer, Omni Seaport, with its outstanding waterfront location, are all excellent examples of elegant, modern venues. Additional options include Raffles, Mandarin Oriental, and Four Seasons One Dalton. While not all necessarily modern in design, these venues can be transformed into beautiful modern spaces with the proper vendors and resources. 

We also have non-hotel options like the Museum of Fine Art, The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum, and the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, all of which radiate modern luxury. They make the chosen space just the icing on the cake! Now it’s time to consider how the venue will be transformed to the couple’s taste.

Modern in the Details 

Just because it’s modern and refined does not mean the venue should be bare and basic! Florals can be simple and elegant with white tones and fresh greens but robust, filling the space beautifully. 

The same mindset applies to centerpieces; they don’t have to be boring just because it’s modern. Geometric vases, sculptural pieces, and mixed materials can make an exquisite statement in a modern design. As wedding planners, we work hand in hand with the florist to determine the florals that reflect a modern design and how to best display them for a couple’s big day!
