Simple and Classic Minimalistic Wedding Decoration Ideas, Fashion and More
Weddings today have become big business. They are bogged down with stage shows, performances and heavy outfits and bridal jewelry that stop you from breathing, right! Somehow this popular trend that weddings have to be ‘the Band Baja and Baarat Showbiz’ takes away from what’s most important YOU! You are getting married to celebrate YOUR LOVE and the beginning of a new life.
MINIMALISM doesn’t mean you’ll get married in a jungle, alone. It’s about you focusing on what truly matters. You don’t need to have a stage show just because your cousin or your friends did it for their wedding. The thing about minimal weddings is that there’s no end to personalizing them. It truly means “Your Wedding Your Way”. Some couples would want to elope, some want 500 + guests on their big day, some would like their wedding décor to be bare and clean, some would want a 3 feet tall center piece on every table and there are some who are happy with just a backyard barbeque.
Weddings can be designed in any way you want. The venue, the food, the décor, the bridal attire, the guest list is under YOUR CONTROL. You can make it the happy affair you wanted, by executing new ideas. Evaluate your personality and think about how to truly tell the world YOUR UNIQUE LOVE STORY! We at weddings.in are happy to help you young brides with some great ideas to organize your minimalistic wedding, if that’s what floats your boat ladies. Have fun planning!
Mininal Bridal Makeup
We start with your makeup for the day. Goal is to look like YOU during the wedding. Let’s not bury that beautiful face he fell in love with under layers of makeup that cakes off at the end of the day (UGHS!). Keep it simple and clean. Have one emphasis to your make up. Don’t go for dark eye makeup with dark lips Emphasize that one element of your face you love most! If it’s the eyes then define them more and keep the rest of the face clean and simple. If you want to accentuate those luscious lips then give them importance and keep the eyes simple. Your hair style should look effortless. The best option is to go for a clean bun. There are many ways to create them that look minimal and classy!
Wedding Attire and Jewellery
Your wedding attire can be a mix of embellished and clean. If the lehenga is embellished then the choli blouse can have a clean, well cut and designed fabric that suits you in color and comfort. Make sure you pay attention to fabrics you choose to wear that day as beautiful fabrics don’t need to be thoroughly embellished. They look classy if they are cut and stitched to perfect measure. Get a very good tailor. It’s best to stick to the pastel color palate shown in the board to help you look minimal.
The Golden rule (literally) is to have one emphasis for all the jewels that you wear that day. Do not go overboard. For example, if you wear a statement hathphool then do not wear bangles all the way to your elbows. Nothing and no one gets attention - Neither the hathphool, or the bangles nor you. Keep it simple ALWAYS.
