When you think of the term “minimalist”, what comes to mind? Lots of people assume that “minimal” will really mean “empty” or “boring.” But not so! Instead, minimalism can mean a range of things, and ultimately looks like simplified, thoughtful design. For the first of our two posts about minimalist wedding design, we’ll talk about invitations, dresses, and bouquets.
Set the tone for your simplified celebration right away with pared-down invitations. Under the umbrella term of ‘minimalism’, your personal style has a place. Pretty and feminine, modern and bold, or classic and traditional—wherever you are on the spectrum, catch your guests’ interests with these simple styles.
When it comes to choosing the perfect dress, embracing minimalism doesn’t have to mean giving up on sparkle, texture, or beautiful design. Instead, consider clean lines, thoughtful structure, and relatively low-fuss style.
Keep flowers simple and natural by sticking to one type or one color palette. Add texture and warmth with natural-looking elements like burlap or twine.
Remember that simple doesn’t have to mean boring and that minimalist design can be applied to any style to lend elegance and intentionality. What are other ways to use minimalist design to really make your wedding memorable? Check back later this week when we’ll be discussing minimalist tablescapes and wedding cakes!
