With so many details and décor options, wedding planning can be stressful, so why not make it simple? Beloved by the cool girl, minimalism has become a major wedding trend, and let us tell you — there is beauty in simplicity. You may think you need loaded centerpieces and layers of linens for your table settings, or overflowing floral chandeliers interspersed with string lighting, but there’s so much to be said for the minimal touch.
Rather than eliminating details (as the style is often interpreted), a clean look merely makes them intentional. Without the fuss, there is nothing to distract from the elements that do remain, allowing them to stand out as a focal spot and giving them more meaning. In a ceremony, a minimalist look points the attention right where it should be — on the bride and groom. And in a reception, it enables the natural beauty and light of the venue to shine through.
A minimalist wedding often pops up in a few common styles. You have organic minimalism, featuring a lot of white with accents of lush greenery, and you have industrial minimalism, where urban meets rustic. Then there’s modern minimalism that loves to play up shapes and geometry, and romantic minimalism, with an ethereal linen or elegant calligraphy here or there. And more often than not, the minimalist style favors a neutral palette for a soft and airy look. But that’s not to say you can’t throw in a spot of color — it provides an unexpected and personalized twist. It’s up to you to make the look your own, but no matter which way you go, it promises to be crisp and classic with underlying sophistication.
You’d be surprised at how little it takes to elevate your wedding style. Here, thirty ideas that prove less really is more.
