How to Utilise minimalism on your wedding day

Feb 28, 2018 | Planning

We're loving the recent move towards more minimalist wedding design this year as it resonates with our less-is-more styling tastes. Timelessness is key to our brand and we always agree with our brides that any kind of styling on your wedding day should be all about you and your love rather than what's 'on trend'. So when photographer Amy N Cherry with stylist For Love of Love sent us this quick guide to minimalism for your wedding, we knew we'd want to see it...

From photographer Amy N Cherry: "The purpose of this creative photoshoot was to build a table place setting with a neutral color-palette focusing on textures, repeating colors, materials, and shapes that were modern and minimalist. We experimented with material combinations, unique floral installations, and adding food to design. I wanted to see how the same color could be translated to various parts of the table."

USING WHITE

We focused on highlighting white which can pick up on all of the delicate details of texture which you can see in the alternating linen fabrics, the rough texture and frayed ends of the dinner menus, how white looks through glass, the smooth bottles of wine, and the distinction in the layered dinner plates.

USING TEXTURES

We brought in various shades of wood and weaved throughout are various golden wood elements like the quirk for the wine, the wax seal on the menus, small wooden salt and pepper dishes, and the vintage chairs. Overall the table is simple, but the materials and placement keep the eye busy finding subtle details.

LIMITING 'PROPS'

Lauren wanted to show couples that a guest’s dining table doesn’t have to be full of unnecessary fluff. If you allocate your budget to invest in quality materials for your table, you can re-use them at your home which should be an extension of your wedding design.

USING FOOD AS DESIGN

Towards the end, we switched our center design to a spread of shareable snacks to show how food can be another place to showcase your wedding colors and allows for a better sense of community between the guests at your table.

I love these tips. The wicker chairs, textures of the greenery and food still make this clean look feel luxurious and full in their own way. SO pretty!

It was a little hard to see the white candles against the white wall, (maybe a slightly dark wall or candle could help) but I like the look and the idea of minimalism in weddings. So much money is poured in these celebrations, it would be great to see creative minimalist weddings.
