That’s why if you want to keep it simple but unique, you might want to go through a “less is more” approach. Keep on reading for some minimalist wedding tips!
Focus On What Truly Matters
Other than the day you were born, your 18th birthday, and your graduation, your wedding ceremony will be one of the most important events in your life. But that doesn’t mean that you should have an overly elaborate wedding if you don’t want to. Instead of unnecessary things, focus on investing your energy into components of your wedding that truly matter to you—such as the ceremony and the food.
Think about it. Years from now, the memories that you would probably remember are the time you said “I do”, your first dance with your partner, the laughter in your reception, and how delicious the food was.
Limit Your Guest List To A Few People
Remember that this is your special day. That means you get to choose who you want to include as witnesses when you and your partner tie the knot. Keeping your list exclusive can help you make your day extra special because you get to be with the people you love.
But because the Filipino culture makes it hard to say no to other people, this might be a difficult task for you. With the current situation, your friends and relatives would understand if they’re not invited to your wedding.
Go Paperless With Your Invitation
Now that you have a working guest list, the next thing to do is to make a formal invitation. If you want to reduce waste, a digital invitation is a great way to make your announcement. You can hire a professional or do it yourself for a more personalized touch.
With a digital invitation, you can use your creativity to make it interactive! Other than a poster-like design, you can also go for video invitations to tell people to save the date. A moving picture a.k.a as a GIF is also trendy. You can just e-mail these invitations or send them through instant messaging apps.
Be Strategic When Choosing A Venue
If you want to lessen your wedding decorations, choosing the right venue can help you keep the “less is more” approach. For example, if you had a beautiful location such as the Old Grove Farmstead in Lipa City, you don’t need any ornaments for your event. The red barn, white picket fences, and trees look great on photos so all you need is a photographer and you’re set.
For beach lovers, you can also have your wedding in a resort. The blue waters, sand on your toes, and the sunset are more than enough to make your backdrop look nice. To reduce travel times, you can also celebrate your honeymoon there!
Have A Minimalist But Delicious Menu
Having a minimalist wedding doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have delicious food. It should be the opposite! Instead of investing in unnecessary things, you should make you and your guests’ experience more memorable—that includes having mouthwatering and appetizing food.
Having professionally cooked food can help you enjoy your wedding—which is what matters the most. If you want to keep your meal preparation minimal, having a caterer can be beneficial. This way, all you need to do is get dressed on the day of the event and head to the venue without worries. To reduce food waste, your caterer will help you choose the right wedding package for your number of guests.
To ensure that you and your partner can make the most out of your wedding, you can keep it simple with a “less is more” celebration! With these minimalist wedding tips, you can cut out any unnecessary clutter and focus on things that are important to you as a couple.
