Half of the year has already passed and we’re almost halfway through 2018. 2018 has introduced several wedding themes but one of them strikes us the most and it is the clean and crisp minimalist approach.
You’ve seen it all from decors, flowers, and even in wedding dresses, the minimalist look is the NEW trend in the wedding industry. Mind you, even Meghan Markle sported the minimalist wedding theme bridal look with her timeless embellishment-free, bateau neckline, long sleeved Givenchy dress and with her simple high-necked Stella McCartney reception dress.
The “LESS IS MORE” minimalist look is the simplest and easiest wedding theme to pull off provided your ideas are cohesive. To get you on board, below is a cheat sheet for you to achieve that effortless minimalist wedding theme look.
1. No-frills invites
Let’s start with the invites. Since we are talking about simplicity, your minimalist theme should well be incorporated in your wedding invites to set the tone. A gorgeous combination of white and black never gets old while a perfectly blended white with gold can also be another great option. In this manner, you get to play around with the typography/calligraphy and catch the attention of your guests. Talk about making a BIG statement.
2. Classic Bridal bouquet
Besides the dress, guests will be looking at your bouquet as you walk down the aisle. As such, your bridal bouquet should complement your overall bridal ensembles and not compete with it. Your safest bet is to go with 2 types of flowers in white color and then just add greeneries and your bridal bouquet is good to go!
3. Wed in Style in your Minimalist Dress
Wear a modern minimalist dress with a twist! Lately, the bateau neckline is a favorite among brides and it might be a good idea since it draws attention to the curve of your collarbone. A big bow at the back of your dress makes a good minimalist statement as well and finishes your overall bridal look!
4. Naked cake no more
Though the naked cake is a popular choice among couples nowadays especially for rustic or bohemian themed weddings, its flair is not matchy matchy for minimalist nuptials. Fondants on the other hand are an impeccable wedding accessory with its clean lines and smooth surfaces. Or if fondant is not your thing, opt for a white wedding cake with textured frosting and add greeneries, berries or flowers on the side for an added pizzazz.
5. An understated wedding signage
Wedding signages are a great addition to any wedding celebrations. Welcome guests to your wedding ceremony with a modern signage matched with a simple calligraphy.
6.Use a running greenery for your Bridal Table
Instead of the usual wedding centerpieces, a running greenery at your bridal table makes a great minimalist wedding statement. Accentuate your table with either a thin or thick garland of greenery (depends on your preference) and you’ll be surprised at how beautiful it can actually look.
7. Opt for basic and classic boutonnieres
The groom and his groomsmen have to be well coordinated so a single white rose with a touch of baby’s breath or a few ferns and a natural green tape looks cohesive.
8.Go for a Minimalist Wedding Arch
For your wedding arch, greenery would be your safest bet! Choose greens over and above colorful flowers and you’ll feel great knowing you made the right choice.
9. Minimalist White Dresses for your Bride Squad.
For a fresh, clean and well-coordinated look, have your bridesmaids dressed in white.
10. Greens, greens and more greens for your centerpieces.
For those who are on a budget, we have great news! The minimalist look is perfect for your budget as you may forego the use of expensive flowers. Instead, you may opt for ferns and other greenery which are a lot cheaper and friendly on the budget.
