Minimalist weddings are still a seriously hot trend for 2019, and it really takes into account the well-known saying ‘less is more’. From chic wedding stationery to simple statement wedding cakes, newlyweds are swooning over the latest modern wedding style. To kick start your wedding planning, indulge yourself in a few of our favorite ideas.
Your wedding save-the-dates and invitations are the first glimpse your guests will get of your big day, so set the tone with your stationery. Simple black and white invitations are understated and work perfectly as a sneak peak for the rest of your wedding décor.
Skip the traditional lace gowns and opt for a pure white gown with a simple, flattering silhouette. Why not wear bridal separates for a seriously stylish look? A two-piece bridal ensemble is a fab alternative to the traditional wedding gown. And for your future hubby-to-be? A sleek black tux will look very handsome.
When I think of a minimalist wedding I think of muted grey and white – these colors would look beautiful complemented with rustic green foliage. Trestle tables with slate grey table runners and white ceramic plates will look ultra chic. There are plenty of possibilities when it comes to your table centerpieces: a geometric metal vase full of succulents and cacti will look incredible. Alternatively, create a glowing atmosphere by lining tall candles in metallic holders along your reception tables.
When it comes to your wedding bouquet, understated is key. Keep the color palette simple with an elegant arrangement of white peonies and olive green foliage. Tie with a soft grey ribbon for a finishing touch.
The wedding cake is often the focal point of a wedding reception, and this is still the case for a minimalist wedding. Ask your cake designer to create a masterpiece using textured white icing with a few sprigs of greenery. Display on a rustic wooden cake stand, a table runner that matches your reception tables will look fab.
