Few details but lots of style – Minimalist weddings are en trend

We can’t deny it… we love wedding decor, and although we love all different types of styles and a variety of colors, we also can’t deny that the absence of accessories and details can look incredibly stylish. Weddings with a minimalist style are becoming a real trend, and they are really proving to us that in this case less is definitely a lot more.

We want to show you some great ideas so you too can create this look with few details but lots of style.

Tradition often has us thinking that going all out on your decor makes for a beautiful event. However, more and more weddings are now breaking with tradition, removing all types of ornaments and details and choosing only what is completely necessarily for their decor or theme. To really create a big impact at a wedding with this type of style, the importance of colors is fundamental, and we think you should opt for a range of neutral tones.

For the reception, the table settings will become main focal points. Within them, it’s not necessary that you incorporate all types of colors, patterns and ideas, but the complete opposite. Choose wooden furniture in mahogany and complement it with tableware in beige and nude tones. White linens, combining with the versatile texture of this rustic material, will look phenomenal! Leave to one side huge and tall centerpieces and go for smaller designs, or leave these out altogether. The contrast of a basic setting with basic glassware will look incredible.

If you want to add in a touch of color to this look, suspended decor can work perfectly, including foliage or vibrant tones with different types of flowers. The object is to create a harmonious contrast within your decor without using too many objects. If you don’t want to fill your wedding with too many colors, chose earthy tones for your crockery and table settings. To create an ultra romantic effect with vintage touches, we recommend bunches of lavender on each place setting. Don’t you just love the idea?

Silver can also be represented perfectly at your minimalist event, and can be used on Tiffany chairs (transparent textures also work amazingly well). There is no need to go overboard with metallics as things may end up looking a bit too sparkly and glamorous. Bottles with one simple flower will be essential to add life to your tables and this simplistic look can also be carried through to your wedding cake and dessert table. The options are infinite!

The main object is that with the perfect color scheme and the selection of meticulous details, you can create a modern and unique setting.
