12 Mid-Century Modern Wedding Ideas

The 1950s and early 60s was an era of impeccably cool style, when bright colors, sleek lines, futuristic furniture and minimalist style (think single flower centerpieces instead of over-flowing arrangements) reigned. Well, mid-century modern style is making a serious comeback in weddings so see how this chic era inspired these contemporary couples’ weddings, so if you’re a couple of old souls with an eye for design then you’ll love all of these retro wedding ideas.
