Hoping that we can be of any help in organizing your dream minimalist wedding, we put together a list of the most important things that will make this special event stand out in the crowd.
A minimalist wedding focuses on the “Less is more” principle, which implies simplicity, fewer ornaments, great organization, and unity. It sure isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but we sure love it! The minimalist style in everything related to design has been a trend for quite a while now and it is certainly not going to fade away soon.
Although we believe that the theme of your wedding should describe you best as a couple, there are a few new ideas and trends that you can integrate while designing it. These details not only will make your wedding very special, but it will be a reference and a model for other weddings.
The new season of weddings has already started, which means it’s time for you to start working on organizing your dream wedding. Make sure you take as many mental pictures of everything you lay your eyes on as you can when you go as a guest. The geometrical shapes, minimalist accessories, large spaces, intense colors, and floral innovations are all key details to a minimalist wedding.
In the list below we gathered some of the best minimalist wedding must-haves. We’ll take a look at the most unique wedding invitations, flower bouquets, decoration, dresses and suits, wedding bands, and many other details. Also, if you have any recommendations or useful comments, make sure you ping us in the comment section below.
The Minimalist Wedding Invitation is “the business card” that will introduce your guests to the aesthetic of your wedding. You will want to choose a clean look given by the two contrasting colors, the legible modern font, and the black-and-white line drawings.
Avoid hand-writing fonts, intense colors or too many colors, beads of any kind, sparkle, bows, etc. Keep it simple, but creative. After you decide upon your design, take it to a local design agency/graphic designer and let them do the hard work for you.
2. The Wedding Dress
The Minimalist Wedding Dress is characterized by a simple cut, uniform lines, without accessories, ornaments or eye-catching details. A simple dress that fits you perfectly is all that the minimalist bride needs. A boho dress is many times the go-to for many future brides who love the minimalist style. We, as well, believe that the combination of styles creates a great visual effect.
3. The Groom’s Attire
We definitely don’t want the groom to look like he’s from another story, that’s why a minimalist attire will follow the same simple cut and uniform lines. A bow tie or a regular tie can be added without ruining the minimalist style, as long as the whole outfit is based on two colors.
4. The Minimalist Wedding Bands
When it comes to the wedding rings, we can have a bit of fun while, of course, keeping it simple and unique. Depending on your hobbies as a couple, or things that describe you the best, you can get custom wedding rings of all sorts. Wave-shaped rings, hand-carved trees rings, mixed metals bands, and so many more minimal cool designs. If you feel creative, design your own wedding ring!
5. The Flower Bouquet
A minimalist flower bouquet isn’t much different from the bride’s and groom’s attire. The red roses are not a thing anymore, which allows us to explore the beautiful nature of our planet, searching for the best (single) color flowers for a minimalist bouquet. Seasonal wildflowers will create a great contrast between the urban touch of your minimalist wedding and the wild decorum. The leaves/flower ratio should be 60-40%.
6. Minimalist Gifts for the Guests
If you have troubles finding the right gifts for your guests, you are probably not searching in the right place. Aliexpress, Etsy, and Wish have a generous variety of cool and affordable minimalist presents!
We trust that these five important parts of every wedding we talked about will make it easier for you to have the wedding of your dreams. It sure isn’t easy to keep your wedding simple but complex but if you manage it, your wedding will be unforgettable. So as a final tip, make sure you study all the details carefully before making any final decisions.
