Vintage It's Not

On the little island where I grew up and live, vintage weddings and it's elements are a complete unknown. There isn't even a Spanish translation for the word vintage! It's is another example of something fashionable in wedding world but unheard of in real life. As much as I love the look of mason jars, milk glass vases and mismatched china, I can't even think of any place I could actually buy them.

On the other hand, me and Mr. Boa aren't vintage type people, though I might swoon over pictures like these:

While researching wedding inspiration I was also attracted to the complete opposite of vintage, weddings that had minimal decoration and lots of white with bright pops of color.

My attraction for contemporary wedding styling combined with my venue, definite implies that my wedding, vintage it's not. I will be combining a venue featuring glass and white walls with pops of purple and gray. In a wedding world full of vintage and rustic wedding inspiration, I sometimes feel like the odd man out. I'm the non-fashionable bride who is planning a modern wedding when it's out of style and I like it! 

Do you have any other suggestions as to how to name the style I'm going for?
How would you describe the style of your wedding? Are you planning a modern affair?
