Hello Urban Live fans. It’s another new month and we are excited to clue you in on what wedding trend we’ve been loving; minimalism.
So, what exactly is minimalism and how would one achieve a minimalist look in their wedding? Not to worry, love, we’re here to guide you through it.
“MINIMALISM IS INTENTIONALITY. It is marked by clarity, purpose, and intentionality. At its core, minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of everything that distracts us from it. It is a life that forces intentionality.”
Minimalism doesn’t necessarily mean an all-white wedding neither does it mean that your space should feel empty. Neither is it about saving on budget. Instead, as noted above, minimalism is a celebration of single elements that matter most to you. Minimalism can leave a striking effect on the hearts and minds of your guests, directing their focus or creating conversational pieces.
Ideally, when minimalism is done well, it should feel timeless, elegant and memorable. Think clean lines and impeccable finishing.
Here’s how you can incorporate minimalism to your event:
1. Use of geometric pieces with minimal floral detail
Skip the grandiose altars and embrace these minimalist options. A simple altar brings the focus back to what the wedding is all about; the union of two souls in love. What better way to do that than with this triangle altar or this octagonal one? Add a bit of floral for flourish and you have a gorgeous, striking altar.
This simple square altar with a bit of greenery is literally the perfect frame for your forever moment.
2. Simple centerpieces
If the reception tables will be fully set with cutlery, crockery and glasses, it may be best to choose a simple centerpiece to offset the busyness of the table. Sometimes huge elaborate centerpieces end up getting messy when the guests finally sit.
3. Adopt a neutral color palette
While your wedding doesn’t have to be monotone, embracing light neutral palettes adds to the minimalist aesthetic.
By having a neutral palette such as white, whatever color you choose to add immediately attracts the eye, especial in floral arrangements, making the whole ensemble come alive.
4. Dried Flowers
Dried flowers merge rustic and modern minimalism to create a beautiful partnership. .
This is a beautiful option for couples who feel the presence of fresh flowers to be a bit much. Aside from using dried leaves you can incorporate dried flowers as well.
How cute is this dried flower backdrop?
