On today’s post, I wanted to switch things up a little bit. Instead of featuring an aspect from couture fashion as I have been doing, I thought I would apply the concept to a wedding theme, and since lately I’ve been on a huge minimalist kick, it seemed a natural direction to take. Don’t get me wrong- I love sequins and glitter has it’s place, and who doesn’t love an all out colour-riot sometimes, but I think pulling back on stuff can be so sophisticated too and a completely modern way to celebrate. It’s important to note, though, that minimalist doesn’t mean basic. It simply means thoughtfully curated and assembled with a “less is more” approach.
A minimalist wedding is all about the details: a neutral or one-colour palette, blind letterpress (when a pattern or text is pressed into paper with either white ink on white paper or no ink at all), simple leaf garnishes and accessories on cakes and plates, centerpieces that are quietly elegant, and the cut of a gown and it’s fabric over beading and embellishment. Added to these are smaller, but equally significant, details such as the design of your cake, the table settings you choose, and the overall mood that you convey to your guests with lighting and ambience.
I’ve talked about my love of minimalism in fashion and monochromatic colour palettes in interiors before- have you seen those posts? I also just had to create a Minimalist Wedding Style board on Pinterest because there is so much more I wanted to share!
So what do you think? Is minimalism your style?
Until next time,
