Our Team Shares All the Details About Putting Together This Modern Classic Wedding Theme

Modern and Classic — two ideas that seem to oppose one another. How does something that is supposedly “classic” suddenly become trendy or contemporary? And what makes something trendy so timeless?

The beauty about classic wedding details (think roses, candles, calligraphy, ball gowns, and suits) is that they form a solid foundation for your theme. The “Modern” elements come in when you personalize how these details are arranged, and put together. The reason why the classics are “timeless” is because they’re so versatile and adaptable to designs and themes that are currently present in the wedding scene. You’ll always spot a hint of the classics.

“We’ve seen different trends and themes come and go but the classics will forever be the foundation of timeliness and class. This is a type of theme that is designed to be meaningful and stylish decades from now,” says Pia Suiza-Fernandez, Bride and Breakfast’s Head of Content.

So, if you’re looking for a wedding aesthetic that will always be in style, take a look at how the Bride and Breakfast team came up with this Modern Classic theme.

    KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde’s Intimate Wedding Featured Barongs Embroidered with Poetic Lyrics

    When artists TJ and KZ first said their vows three years ago, they had to deal with limitations set by the pandemic. Travel restrictions meant their closest family couldn’t attend, but the couple still managed to make the event significant.

    Perhaps the most striking feature of their intimate wedding was the choice of attire. “Pag-Ibig ating punla,” reads the embroidery on their barongs, a line from their song “Simula.” In a ceremony stripped of excess, the intricate detail did more than just adorn; it told a story—a poetic expression woven into the fabric of their lives and their union.

    By opting for a modest and intimate ceremony, the couple underscored the beauty of minimalist events. Absent were lavish decorations and flashy elements. The focus, instead, was squarely on the genuine love between them and the happiness of finally celebrating this important life event with their nearest and dearest. Get inspired by their love story through these photos captured by Mico Gonzales.
