You may have spotted our recent blog post about our favourite minimalist wedding hairstyles for a fashion-forward bride, and we thought we’d follow it up with a modern minimalist wedding theme. This ultra-chic theme became a huge trend in 2016 and it seems that it’s here to stay for the long run. We’re adding a handful of modern touches to make it the perfect theme for a totally on-trend 2017 wedding day. So, if you’re a bride and groom with some serious style, we suggest you keep reading…
How To Pull Off A Modern Minimalist Wedding Theme
Let’s take a look at the most important outfit of the day: the bridal look. Your aisle style is a chance to make a statement on your special day, and you want to look and feel your best. A minimalist wedding theme really is the perfect fit for a modern bridal babe and you can have some serious fun putting together your wedding day look. We’re huge fans of minimalist manicures and they make a lovely alternative to a traditional blush pink bridal manicure. Go bold with black nail polish or keep it chic with white or grey.
If you’re looking to add a hint of sparkle to your aisle style, look no further than the incredible Naturae Design. They have a range of modern and unique accessories that will add that finishing touch to your bridal look. From belts to hair vines, they’ve got you covered!
When it comes to your hairstyle, we adore messy fishtail plaits, braids and high ponytails. If you’re in need of further inspiration, have a browse through our top bridal hairstyles here.
A blank canvas wedding venue with lots of white space is the perfect fit for this wedding theme, and it’ll give your big day an urban vibe. Plus, lots of white walls and interiors mean you can easily add subtle hints of colour. Foliage and floral installations look incredible against a plain white wall, and they make the most gorgeous backdrops for your ceremony and any photographs. You could also use them above your cake table or your card table.
We can’t get enough of acrylic decorations and ideas, and they’re still such a unique choice for weddings. From acrylic chairs for your ceremony to an acrylic cake table, you really can’t go wrong. Acrylic decorations are the perfect fit for a minimalist wedding theme and they’re one of the biggest wedding trends for the year ahead.
When it comes to a minimalist wedding colour scheme, we suggest using a palette consisting of white, grey, green and black. Using black details will help to give your theme a gritty, urban edge that works beautifully with a city wedding. For instance, monochrome stationery will set the scene for your special day, while giving your guests a hint of what’s around the corner.
You could also tie a silk black ribbon around your wedding bouquet for a unique touch. Pair with a black leather jacket for an edgy bridal look.
For your wedding tables, we adore the idea of using plain white table runners and napkins against the contrast of black charger plates. Clear vases and bottles filled with fern stems or palm leaves will look simple yet stylish, and they’ll work beautifully as your table centrepieces.
A minimalist wedding theme is modern, on-trend and a must-have for a stylish couple. What’s not to love?
