Trend Alert: Minimalist Materials

The rising trend of minimalist fashion has finally set foot as an established label within wedding wear. In the past year or so, designers have honed in on the poised simplicity and subtle elegance of the style, creating looks that mimicked those that were heavily embraced in the early 90s. Minimalism places more weight on characterizing function and comfort than elaborate and distinctive features. For wedding dresses in particular, minimalist styles attempt to draw attention to the natural beauty of the figure wearing the dress (rather than bury the bride in a mountain of expensive fabric and lace!)

The ballgown look exudes just the right amount of princess-ness, and with the added modern touch of the plunging V-neck and spaghetti straps to help show off your figure, there’s no reason to not embrace the idea of being the belle of your own wedding ball!

The subtlety of minimalist fashion never gets old! A dress with a simple, modest front almost always has something unexpected going on in the back, cue image above.

A bit of lace never killed nobody…except in the fashion arena of the wedding ceremony!

Paired with mesh lines that trace the natural curves of one’s figure, this streamline gown does wonders for the female body! Pull the look together with some white lace gloves to bring out the complete modern vintage vibe.

A high slit in your skirt will ensure that when your legs get too claustrophobic underneath, it can peep out and breathe effortlessly!

A silky-smooth, slip-like dress hugs the figure just enough that the overall ensemble remains loose but intriguing!

Few styles out there could pull off the floor-length veil and still embody such a angelic, dreamy aura.

Theme Thursday: Parisian Inspired Wedding

Many refer to Paris as the city of love. So why not let that beautiful city inspire your wedding? Parisian, or French, inspired weddings are both elegant and romantic. This theme is a new twist on a classic romance themed wedding, and we love it! Obviously we can’t all go to Paris for our wedding… but if you could, we’d recommend this venue!
