Keeping with the trend of minimalism, you can also host an understated wedding affair sure to leave a lasting impact – here’s how
Every couple looks forward to having the wedding of their dreams—opulent, full of life, and etched in people’s memories forever. However, if you are the couple who likes to keep celebrations low-key, these minimalistic wedding trends are just for you.
Choose a laid-back venue
By opting for locations such as a beach or even the backyard of your house, you can nail the perfect minimalist wedding. Choose wooden furniture and the least amount of adornments for it to stay true to your theme. Consequently, you will save money otherwise spent on a grander location.
Opt for understated décor
The décor must complement the theme of your wedding. Go for natural or reusable decorations that not only look sophisticated, but also have minimal effect on your wallet. You can also DIY if you feel creative enough to do so.
Send e-vites to people
Since most of our lives are documented on social media, it only seems fitting to send electronic invites to people either over e-mail or messaging apps. You can even create an interactive save the date and let people know about the details of your wedding. Furthermore, you can ask them to RSVP electronically to save both time and money, and environmental resources.
Plan your honeymoon right away
Instead of planning your honeymoon after finalising other details of the wedding, begin planning early to have the perfect getaway. Take the time to research and finalise a suitable itinerary and book in advance for maximum savings. Take care of these details beforehand to ensure a stress-free holiday.
Say no to gifts
Put an end to the receiving and returning of gifts. Inform your guests in advance to avoid any awkward situations and relieve them of the burden of having to spend a lot on something you may never use.
Aside from this, choose a muted colour palette (think pastel tones) for your bridal entourage.
