What is a Modern and Minimalist Wedding? A wedding that is characterized by a clean, simple, and uncluttered aesthetic. This style is often inspired by contemporary design while emphasizing function over form and is one of my absolute favorites! Many believe you need to go over the top on your wedding design to make a statement, but the modern and minimalist styled wedding truly proves that sometimes, less is more!
The Feel: Chic & Sophisticated
clean lines, monochromatic color schemes, and a limited decorative elements
A modern and minimalist wedding is all about creating a chic and sophisticated atmosphere, rather than a lavish or ornate one. This can be achieved through the use of clean lines, monochromatic color schemes, and a limited number of decorative elements. The overall look and feel of the wedding should be polished and refined, but not over-the-top!
The Key Elements:
A neutral color palette is key in this design. Think black, white, shades of grey, and other neutrals. Black is one of my favorite color schemes EVER and is such an underused color in the wedding industry. People are usually scared of it and think it will make their wedding day look to dark. BUT LET ME TELL YA, Our Moody Modern Glam Lotus House Wedding was a masterpiece. The incorporation of natural materials, such as wood, greenery, and stone is also a perfect way to add texture and color to a modern and minimal wedding without the use of unnecessary embellishments!
Wedding attire is simple, yet gorgeous. Modern and Minimalist brides typically choose a wedding dress with clean lines and minimal embellishments. A clean white wedding gown is always a show stopper. And if you still want a little glam, then lace, sequin, or bead details are perfect for that extra sparkle. And for the groom, a clean and simple suit with a bow tie.
Ceremony and Reception decor include simple settings with minimal decorative elements. The focus is often on lighting and ambiance rather than tall elaborate centerpieces on stands and other decorations. When choosing to go with a minimalist and modern design, picking the right venue can go a long way. The right venue space alone will speak for itself and set the mood. And then the look can simply be completed with perfect balance of candles, linen, & floral pieces!
