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.
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.
OK. So I think I can now officially say that I’ve got somewhat of a little obsession with paper. But not just any kind of paper. The kind that can be used to create little decorative details that instantly up the pretty factor on whatever they’re applied to. Couple that concept with scale, of the miniature kind, and I’m a happy girl! So when I was presented with the request to figure out a few ways to feature one of Weddingstar’s newest decorative trims, the mini white paper garland, I sprang to the challenge with glitter and spray paint in hand! Here are three of my favorite ways to put this petite paper trim to work.
