How to Plan a Minimalist Wedding
Have you ever attended a wedding and thought to yourself, I think I have seen this before? Everything right before you seem to have been imported from someone’s ‘ideal wedding report’ or something of that sought. The dress worn by the bride and the colors of those maids have been used somewhere else, you can’t recall where. Well, this is what happens when a wedding is not adequately planned. It is not easy to plan a wedding that is full of joy or fun, and contemporary all at once. You are likely to cling onto something you saw somewhere and thought it would be perfect for you, but in the real sense, it is not. This article seeks to explain to you (in detail) on how to plan your minimalist wedding in a manner that will leave both you and your guests satisfied. Read on.
When it comes to planning your minimalist wedding, there is something you need to keep in mind – having a lot of material possessions does not guarantee happiness. We get the peace and happiness we dream of from within, it cannot be found somewhere outside us. Before you kickstart your planning, you have to realize the significance of what you are about to commit yourself to, that is, the essence of the marriage. Keep this in mind for reference whenever you find it necessary. Understand that happiness will not be derived from that event itself but from the experience and the environment that will be created in the course of the event. This brings us to the question, how do you start your planning for a minimalist wedding?
Avail a draft of what you need (menus, wedding invitations, maps, and any relevant material you need) early enough. Make this clear and concise for easier understanding. Capitalize on the negative space to create a message that is clear and simple. It is usually a great feeling having to look at an invitation that has no unnecessary images and words. Ensure your wedding invitation contains all the relevant information that will enable the guests to keep up with their calendars, who to send their responses to, and the maps. If paperwork is too cumbersome, you can decide to go the electronic way, which would be faster.
Make use of simple or neutral colors for the flatware. You can choose to use plants as centerpieces, with additional touches of natural colors. These will give you a more elegant, natural feeling. Besides, these plants can be used at home once the event is over. Use simple wines and cocktails. A few of these cocktails in high-quality (and perhaps a combination of a red here and a rose there) will be great options for your guests to choose from. You can find restaurants that do this. This will ease your planning, smoothen your orders, and the overall outcome, a very organized ceremony.
Since this is a minimalist wedding, vows are usually kept short, precise, and pleasant. You ought to say what you mean and mean what you say (express your true feelings). Whether your colleague is the one at the forefront of conducting your ceremony or not, make it clear that you want a brief and purposeful event, not a luxurious one. If possible, go through whatever is to be said by your partner on the D-day and assess whether it fits your minimalistic theme.
Since most of your guests won’t be interested in the favors you are to accord to them, you can easily cut down on this part. We have a wide range of options that you can choose from as alternatives that will still be purposeful. You can decide to give your guests those plants you had earlier used as centerpieces to take home. You can also opt for mobile photo shops that will make it easier for your guests to print out the pictures they take. If you cannot manage to do this, use the option of food. I am sure many will welcome this idea. For minimalist weddings, extending purposeful favors is highly valued and preferred.
At minimalist weddings, it is too absurd to ask your guests to give specific gifts. You can choose to go about this by listing the items you are missing in your home and would love to have them and let them decide what to do. Asking them to make donations towards your honeymoon will also be a great alternative.
Do not Deviate from the Plan
Whereas there is a tendency of things getting out of hand in the course of your planning, you should stick to the plan. Pressure from your parents and the community around you may be overwhelming. You may have decided to hold your event at the attorneys, but your parents will hear none of it, they are advocating for a church wedding. Your friend insists on designing extra wedding invitations to accommodate her other friends and much more. At this point, your minimalist wedding is turning into something else that you have been working so hard to avoid.
Our take on this is, turn down whatever it is you can. It won’t hurt you as much as it will when things get out of hand, and you find yourself amid an event whose planning failed terribly. Be firm on your minimalistic theme and maybe, give room to a few more changes. After all, this has something to do with them too.
Understand that the idea of a minimalist wedding has nothing to do with cutting on the budget. The theme does not mean that you have a wedding devoid of joy and fun and starving your guests. It is about keeping things simple but meaningful. However, this idea will save you a lot of funds that can be channeled into something else. One great thing about the minimalist idea is that you learn things that can be applied in your life on a daily basis. Start planning your purposeful wedding to enjoy the fruits of the minimalism approach.
