Minimalism has been a growing trend thanks to COVID-19 and social distancing. The wedding industry hasn’t gone unaffected. While we’ve all been cleaning out our closets and parting with that old blouse (that you’ll probably never wear again), 2021 bridal trends have been echoing the KonMari revolution. So if you’re ready to say I do á la minimalist wedding, here’s how to nail the look.
Goodbye Big Ceremony, Hello Elopements
COVID ruined a lot of wedding plans. But it wasn’t anything a little creativity couldn’t fix. Instead of large ceremonies, people began to understand the value of eloping. Elopement rates shot through the roof last year, and that trend’s not predicted to change any time soon.
If you’re planning a wedding in 2021, embrace the minimalist approach and opt for a small outdoor wedding or elopement instead. Micro weddings and elopements are more intimate and embody the minimalist bridal trends of 2021.
Elopements come with some serious benefits. You won’t have to stress about the details of planning a large ceremony – like guest lists, the cost of renting a large space, and the sheer amount of work it takes to plan and decorate.
Instead, you can focus on yourself and your partner – without the burden of planning a large ceremony. Plus, you’ll be able to spend more one-on-one time with the few guests that do attend.
Swap the Big Dress for a Minimalist Wedding Gown
If you’re going for that chic, minimalist wedding vibe, ditch the big poufy gown for a simple wedding dress. Instead of lacy puff sleeves or beaded details, keep your wedding gown streamlined and chic for that effortlessly minimal feel.
If you’re planning a small, courthouse wedding, you can even branch out and go a little more casual than the traditional full-length, long-sleeve gown. Simplistic wedding dresses are a vibe, and we are here for it!
A modern, minimalist wedding dress can free you up to embrace your day with open arms. It can even give you the freedom to plan an adventure wedding or elopement, where you take your big day to the great, wild outdoors. Instead of tripping over a long veil or lengthy train, a minimalist bridal gown can let you hike over hills and through forests to elope in the most magical of destinations.
Stick to Simple Wedding Ceremony Decor
It’s time to say goodbye to the days of flashy decor and large reception halls. Instead, embrace simple wedding decorations. Because when it comes to the minimalistic marriage aesthetic, less is more.
Incorporating minimal flowers at your wedding ceremony doesn’t have to be boring. Minimal color palettes are filled with all sorts of neutrals. Add in some dark green foliage or moody burgundies for extra flair. You can also build yourself a bouquet that will last forever. with dried florals.
Or heck, be a rebel and plan your simple, chic wedding without decorations! Sometimes the scenery is all you need to create a stunning backdrop for unforgettable wedding ceremony memories.
