When it comes to design, less is more.
Some of the most chic, high-end designs are actually incredibly simple. The balance, the white space, the breathing room that minimalist design invokes a sense of calm and the feeling of luxury rather than lack.
Using simple, minimalist design allows your photos and other elements to take center stage.
The minimalism movement is definitely gaining ground, thanks to thought-leaders like The Minimalists who promote the idea of living more with less. Or Marie Kondo, who encourages people to choose the items they own with intention and purpose, keeping only what brings you joy.
One of our top wedding tips for a stylish and savvy wedding: keep it simple. You can apply these simple concepts of minimalism to your wedding day by eliminating the excess that doesn't serve a purpose or add true value for you or your guests. Not only will it result in a classy, clutter free design, but it could ultimately lead to a simpler, calmer, and stress-free day.
Minimalist Wedding Design: Save the Dates
One of the first aspects of your big day that will give your guests a sneak peek into your wedding design is your save-the-date. If you want to plan a chic wedding on a budget, choosing a minimalist save the date design is a great way to set the tone.
Striking Photos Paired with Script Text
One way to achieve a minimalist look with a dose of personalization is to include a photo. Choose a favorite engagement photo and pair it with a chic script font for a simply chic look. We're loving these minimalist photo designs that incorporate a photo of you and your partner into your save the date.
Not into adding a photo? Go for a fully typographic design for your save the date. These modern typography save the dates from Minted are simple and chic to set the tone for a simple but classy wedding.
Block Type with Photos
For the best of both worlds, incorporate a photo or two with some striking block typography for a modern, classic look. We love these photo and block typography save the dates we spotted on Minted:
