5 Minimalist Wedding Ideas

written by Thalia Basulto May 2, 2018


“Less is more,” a saying I am sure most of us have heard, and when it comes to decor a minimalist approach can go a long way, especially in weddings. Minimalist weddings are one of this year’s trends! This style can be achieved through decor, floral design, stationery and more.  A minimalistic design favors other styles such as industrial, modern, and rustic. This wedding style is normally toned down and focused on the smaller details that showcase the couple’s personalities. When it comes to wedding planning, there’s a lot of things to think about the reception venue, to your dress and flowers, and all the way down to the very small details. So to simplify things a little, check out five minimalist ideas you can apply to your big day…

Minimalist wedding stationery


Announce your big day with stunning minimalist invitations! There’s nothing more elegant than a sleek black and white wedding invitation. Play around with typography to add visual interest or incorporate metallic foil for a luxe look.

 Soft pastels and rich greens


Rather than using a variety of colors, keep the color palette simple with pastel blooms and soft sage foliage. A neutral color palette will allow you play around with textures and best of all, the floral options are endless. Try sticking with one or two floral options like peonies and roses, and pair them with bay leaf or silver dollar eucalyptus for an ultra-chic bouquet. As for boutonnieres, you’ll mostly see the groom using greenery instead of blooms.

Incorporate accent elements


When working with a neutral palette, add in pops of metallics or another contrasting color into the mix. Elements like this will draw attention rather than getting lost in the decor. A modern minimalist tablescape such as the one featured above has a fun velvety texture and a pop of fresh rosemary. These small details can make quite the impression!

Embrace the open space


The minimalist trend is often seen in lofts, warehouses, and other industrial buildings but the idea can be applied to just about any other venue. When working with an open venue, it’s tempting to fill up space with unnecessary stuff but keep things clean and simple.

Simple wedding cake design


You can’t go wrong with an all-white cake embellished with small hints of fresh greenery or maybe fresh flowers. The cake featured above is very clean and simple. It’s also sleek and timeless! Your wedding cake doesn’t need to be over the top to look beautiful.
