One of the many perks of being a minimalist is that you get to simplify everything, including your wedding. Weddings can be stressful enough as it is, so having added pressure to buy a big expensive wedding gown can really weigh on you. Use the following ideas while on the search for proper wedding attire that supports to your lifestyle.
Stay away from bulky gowns, for example princess wedding dresses. You’ll find that this style is one of the top wedding trends of 2011, but that doesn’t mean you need to hop on that train. Speaking of trains, stay away from them as well. As a minimalist, one of your goals is likely to have as little fabric and bulkiness for stowing as possible, so stay away from any unnecessary fabric.
Forego any veils or headpieces, and instead opt for a gorgeous hairstyle. Although veils, headpieces, and hair accessories can be beautiful additions to your wedding ensemble, they aren’t necessary and can be costly.
If it’s space you’re most concerned about, then consider a cocktail length wedding gown. This length comes in many different styles, including halter, strapless, one shouldered, and is available in countless different fabrics.
Whichever dress you end up choosing, just make sure you keep it simple—just like your lifestyle!
