These days, you can find information on just about anything in just a few clicks. Since minimalism is on the rise, so are websites about this movement, and way of life. If you are a minimalist who’s on the lookout for wedding planning websites, then make a note of the following minimalist sites.
This bridal planning website is fantastic because it’s a blog written by Alison Andrews, a bride who had a full-blown minimalist wedding from beginning to end. Alison and her husband, Jaye, decided to have a minimalist wedding mainly because it financially made sense for them, and also because of their lack of time. Alison was prepping for her graduation, which took place the day after their wedding, as well as a move to Taiwan with Jaye for one year to teach English. An extreme wedding didn’t make sense for Alison and Jaye because they were gearing up to move their lives post vows.
Alison and her fiancé got married at their local Home Affairs Office in their hometown of Cape Town. Only their closest family members were there as Alison and Jaye exchanged their vows, wearing non-traditional wedding garb—casual outfits they already had.
Alison and Jaye, with the help of their friends and family, had small wedding bouquets, off-the-cuff wedding photos, and the perfect minimalist wedding experience.
Alison’s blog delves into every other aspect of her minimalist wedding, including her and Jaye’s wedding bands, the reception, her minimalist wedding car (a VW Bug), and more.
Paper Doll Romance is another great wedding blog for minimalists. It's a blog about “romance, weddings, and generally girly things.” This blog will inspire minimalist brides throughout their search for answers, ideas, and general wedding guidance.
This blog has great ideas about your wedding venue, and agrees that most wedding venues are bombarded with brocade curtains, patterned carpets, and chandeliers, which are visually overbearing and unnecessary. For the minimalist, a venue with an abundance of wide-open space is ideal, and should look like a blank canvas. Open, white, modern spaces are the perfect space for minimalist couples to have a wedding that represents their way of life, and gives them free reign to scatter a few simple candles, vases, and flowers.
This post also offers some great photos for wedding inspiration in regards to your wedding dining tables, flowers, name cards, wedding cake, wedding dress, and bridesmaid dresses.
