DIY Wedding Wednesday: How To Pull Off a Modern Minimalist Wedding

modern minimalist wedding design how-to

There’s something to be said about adhering to the old “less is more” concept when designing a wedding. Certainly if it’s a modern look you’re after, the minimalist approach is the way to go. But minimalist need not mean basic. It’s the exact opposite. When it’s only choice items you decide to incorporate into your day, each one of your selected pieces should be spot on in matching the particular aesthetic you’re going after. Not sure where to start? No worries. We got you! Here’s a look at what you need to pull off modern minimalism to perfection.

Pretty and Polished

Playing with metal finishes and metallic shades is always a good idea when you’re looking to create a contemporary design. They instantly provide for the sleek finish a modern day style calls for.

White and Bright

Bring in a sense of warmth into a design that might otherwise feel stark by complimenting your metals with bright white accents. Think classic pieces that speak to the femininity of a wedding day celebration.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: Pretty Packages for Your Bridesmaids

pretty packages

Couple weeks back we shared our two pennies on how to pop the big “will you be my bridesmaid” question to your BFFs and it all went something like this, “Make it sparkle. Make it pretty!”. If you missed the post, check it out {here}. And because we’re total girly girls, we got so caught up in all the fun that we decided to come up with a couple more super sweet ways to show your besties you adore them and can’t see your big day going off without them. And just like with our last post, making it sparkly and pretty was the direction of choice.

Message in  a Bottle

Go for the surprise factor and forgo the usual boxed presentation for a non traditional container that’ll throw her off of what’s inside, a darling monogrammed pendant necklace. And, we love this little glass corked bottle, made all that much more lovely with a touch of lace filler.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: How-To Pop the Big Question (To Your BFFs)

will you be my bridesmaid

He popped the big question. You hollered out an enthusiastic “YES”! The champagne was poured and so now you’re off to the planning board. And what’s one of the first things you’re likely to quickly decide on? The girl crew who’ll stand by your side throughout the whole of your wedding planning  journey. It’s a list of names that will no doubt be made up of childhood friends and close family members, all of which are women you simply can’t live without. Why not take the opportunity to show them just how much they mean to you by making the way you pop your “will you be my bridesmaid” ask something extra special. And when we say special we mean pretty and sparkly of course. Sound like a plan? Then here’s everything you need to make it happen.

Presentation is Key

OK, so the bling is what’s best but don’t overlook how you present it. We’re loving the current trinket tray trend, made that much better when personalized just for her.

Bring on the Bling

Diamonds maybe a girl’s best friend, but so are bracelets, and charms, and chains. Really, you can’t go wrong when it comes to the gift of jewelry.
