Real Bride Stories
When you’re embracing love, there’s no measure for what’s too big or too small to celebrate! But these days, simple and sophisticated is a trend we can’t get enough of! Having your dream wedding, while keeping things understated, means finding the beauty in the smaller details, and of course, still finding a dress you know is “the one!”
Just because they’re subtle doesn’t mean they aren’t show stopping! Flowers can get over the top if you let them, but scaling down by adding branches and greenery is still a floral fantasy in our books. That applies to everything from your bouquet, to your ceremony arch, to your tables. Pick a simple but colorful bloom to mix into the more natural woodsy arrangements.
Embrace the rustic elements you have to work with! Sometimes the bare minimum is actually quite beautiful all on its own. There’s a definite charm to letting exposed brick walls or wooden beams shine just the way they are. Plus the fewer distractions around, the more focus on the happy newlyweds!
Focus on the fabrics! If you’re sticking with an ultra simple color palette, then the room will really catch all the textures and dimensions you use. Interesting geometric-shaped chandeliers, velvet cushions, and sparkles on the neutral shades will be anything but basic!
Naked is in! For your cake that is. A clean cut tiered confection, sans icing, tastes as sweet and has a beautifully modern style to it. A light decorative pattern or even a few spare edible flowers can give you that extra touch of pizzazz. Placed on top of a more elaborate cake stand, that’s minimalist magic!
Simple and stunning, each of these dresses says Bride but keeps your look modern and fresh. From understated ballgowns to sexy slips, a minimalist dress certainly doesn’t mean compromising on style. For the bride who wants to feel like the princess, our Cherly dress, with her voluminous skirt a chic off-the-shoulder neckline, certainly gives us regal vibes! Connie’s silky satin is sure to shine on your big day, and we’re obsessed with the tie-back keyhole detail. Wanting an ultra-sultry wedding day look? Look no further than Charlene! Her clean lines, with daring details, make this a modern minimalist’s dream. There’s something about a slip dress that feels so classic, but when you pair it with Cambria’s gorgeous cowl back, we can’t say yes fast enough!
