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.
