Maximizing the Modern Wedding Style

We have all heard the mantra less is more, but traditional wedding style has always put this idea to the test. A multitude of exotic flowers, extraordinary white dresses, larger than life centerpieces--you’ve seen it all packed into a modest wedding venue. While traditional weddings can be unbelievably gorgeous, many brides are opting for a more minimalist style including chic invites and modern dresses.

The minimalist wedding can be defined as edgy, trendy, and chic with refined yet very simple modern decor. For the bride and groom, their big day comes will little fuss or formality and guests are able to relax, unwind, and enjoy each other’s company (Weddingomania, 2016). Resort style is naturally chic with artisanal food options, simple decor, and a flooding of natural light, so choosing a destination wedding can make pulling off the minimalist style a cinch.
