20 Gorgeous, Understated Minimalist Wedding Ideas

  |   By Angie Kovacs

While Marie Kondo has us lusting after minimalism in our homes, we also love the idea of gorgeous wedding details that are elegantly simple.. And while a themed wedding can be super fun and original, the minimalist trend will always be timeless. If you're having a hard time picking the perfect wedding colour palette or theme, opting for a minimalist look may be the easiest way to go. A pared-down colour palette and minimalist florals can create a gorgeous, effortless look you'll love.

The less-is-more trend has grown as a statement with a simplicity that elevates your wedding. There has always been an elegance to simplicity and there are many gorgeous wedding details that are both stunning and modern. Here are some beautiful, minimal wedding touches we love.
