The scientific approach in the form pragmatism has opened the doors for the minimalist movement. This proved to be a futuristic transformation. A less is more approach that is very timely to the economic activities and lifestyle of this millennium. This has taken over every sector and has gained so much prominence even in the fashion industry. In the recent years, it took hold on the work apparel and has extended its far-reaching influence in bridal couture and minimalist wedding. It is rather edgy and synergizes the attitude and body of the minimalist bride. Photo by Khristelle Tan Bridal CoutureThis decade’s minimalist wedding has substantially set aside gender stereotypes on covering or revealing the body in a totally different light and has greatly impacted on the evolution of people’s perception of elegance and sexiness. It highlights the fabric and form rather than its function. We see a play of geometric shapes and line in a rather monochromatic hue. This challenged the glitz and glamour of our time as it became a politically relevant alternative or rival.Weddings are happy occasions, however, it can be stressful most of the time. So why not make things easier and simpler? Try a minimalist wedding and be a minimalist bride. Besides, there is beauty in simplicity.Sometimes, less is even more but necessarily boring.

It’s not that we strip the decorative details when we switch to a minimalist wedding, however, it aims to keep everything neat and in place. This presentation accents the beautiful minimalist bride, the wonderful groom, the solemnity of the tying of the knot and focally points to the abstract elements that intertwine the emotional attachments unifying everyone on the said occasion. Those above are merely generic statements about what a minimalist wedding is and who a minimalist bride is. Let us discuss in detail what minimalist weddings are about to give you the best picture.What is a minimalist wedding?I bet you already have an idea of what a minimalist wedding is, chances are you are just not aware that it’s it. Right now, if you are in the rush as your wedding day is fast approaching, then this might be the best option. You need not stress yourself out from complex decision-making processes on the intricacies of your wedding.Photo by Khristelle Tan Bridal CoutureSimply put, as its name suggests – minimal, meaningless and simple. That will do well will the effort, time, energy and expenditure in the preparations. It will surely save you from all the worries and doubts, making you enjoy the process until its end on your wedding day.Photo by Trizha Dimayuga BridalSurely, when you were younger, you dreamt of a fairytale wedding with you adorned with lace, tulle and all sorts of fancies. Yes, that’s true. The brides of today, however, want to keep things subdued and would want the simplest wedding gown. There are a lot of minimalist brides in the past, today and in the future. Simply because simplicity never goes out of style. Moreover, these minimalist pieces highlight you, the real you. You don’t get adorned to lose yourself instead, you wear something that expresses your individuality. They see the flattering and festive mood in you.Don’t get me wrong, minimalistic weddings are not the plain, boring weddings. As is the most common wrong notion of others. They just have that classic feel in it with its picturesque backdrop. In occasions with minimalist approach, the values and essence come before the design, therefore, it sets the direction of the design. In this concept, the design shouldn’t overpower the emotional essence of the event. Minimalist weddings are beautiful in that they are not saturated with superficial beauty but of the values that matter most in the lives of the people around. Yes, that is the primary reason this became a hit to most nowadays. It is rather sincere and purposeful, rather than just being a product of the fan-fare of it as a current trend. In the years to come, that classic, essential minimalist wedding will make you reminisce and give a nostalgic experience of that lovely wedding day. Those mementos you took on that blessed day would seem just yesterday as minimalist weddings stand out across time and space. It goes back to the basics of the reason and values of the occasion.Who is a minimalist bride?A minimalist bride values the reasons and essence of the whole event and makes it stand out by accenting it with a backdrop of clean color hues. She embodies simplicity and fully understands that emotional binding elements are of heavier brevity than the superficial glamour. She abides by the less is more principle in all the details of every aspect of her preparations. Abiding by this approach, she makes seamless transitions from one stage to another in her preparations in the most minimal time. Simplicity is in the process but not in the essence, rather than superficial glitz but mediocre essence. Though embellishments are captivating, that is more of temporal rather than the lasting pureness and emotional binding simplicity.The minimalist bride is in herself oozing with the attitude. It is not transcendent from the dress but in her innate value. It is her great personality that makes the rather simple wedding dress elegant. It is the flair of festive emotions that radiates glory to her couture that captivates the audience. The sincerity of her aura is what compels every individual to appreciate her loveliness. It is the out bursting gratitude and blessedness that brings charisma to her favor. Indeed, money can buy the best wedding gown in this world but can never replace the grace of the best bride. Money can arouse envy but not love.As Siddharta Gautama puts it, the extreme worldly desires of man are the cause of unnecessary suffering. In the process of wanting more than needed, we cause ourselves to lose sight of what really matters, leading us astray to things that really don’t mean much. It is when we strip ourselves of this excess baggage and expectations that things are clear and easier to handle. Later on, when we look back, after years of experience and having grown in wisdom, we soon regret it not being wise. Oftentimes, the glitches that we experience are of our own devising. Marriage is the start of new beginnings. What a better way to start it with very sincere and thoughtful solemn rites that will wake the real essence of our human nature. Let that spark continue to burn and light your journey into marriage. Besides, it is but the invaluable things in this life that will guarantee true happiness. Are you planning to be a minimalist bride at your wedding?

Choose a flower that matchesMay it be that the choice of best wedding flower ideas is of personal or family preference, what’s important is that the bouquet represents the language of the heart and soul of the bride. Bouquets are the ultimate statement of love in the wedding. A concrete expression of the personality and style. If it were based on tradition, still, it says something in itself. It’s a silent storyteller that represents every significant person in every generation. It could be embellished and bear important insignia and heirloom in the family as well. That would be the something old of the bride from – ‘something old, something new and something blue’.In matching, it is important to consider shape and size of the flower if it matches with the other elements of the wedding with an emphasis on the wedding gown.2. Pick one in seasonIt is wise to pick a flower that is in season at the time of your wedding. You are rest assured that they are readily available, are cost-effective and in their best shape.flowers by: Lauren Jessika Events3. Compliment it with your assetsAssets are meant to be flaunted. A slender waist or beautiful details on the wedding gown shouldn’t be blocked by a rather awkward bunch of flowers. Rule of thumb, in as much as the color and shape of the buds should complement the other elements, the design should do the same as well. Photos by: Polespino Photography4. Go for lasting onesGo for lasting ones. This is a very important consideration. A perfect find is one that can withstand the elements that it has to endure in the venue. And if you want your bouquet instead of tossing them, then lasting ones are the best option. Just get a back up for the bouquet tossing (or else single ladies are off for the biggest disappointment, and the guys, too).5.

Basically, these are the things that you should be on the lookout for. Then you are good to go to the next phase.With whom to realize these wedding flower ideas?1. Ask for recommendationsExperience could give one the best qualification to recommend. Ask friends and family members who have availed of a florist’s services lately. Get feedback on how the services went. From there, you have roughly a good data to start with in finally picking the best florist candidate.2. Visit floristsThough you have asked for recommendations, you may be tempted to take their word for it but its best to actually visit as many florists as you can. Talk to them about their services, packages, price range and discounts. Whatever you’ve decided put it all in writing. Specific details should be indicated in the contract such as the name of flowers, amount, event and other important information. Read well and sign. Ideally, this should be done 6 months prior to the occasion. If you consider and follow these steps on getting the wedding flower ideas, you are on the right track.

Choosing the perfect wedding theme and color isn’t actually the same as picking your two favorite colors, putting them together, and making them the foundation of all of your wedding detail. Well, there are actually some of the things that are worth considering in order to have your theme and color match with the place and the season. As a help, here is a guide on how to choose a wedding theme and color.LET THE SETTING OF YOUR WEDDING INSPIRE YOUBecause the location is one of the first things that should be finalized, the color palette that you have always been thinking of can be a help in order to have the right venue. Well, you can think of the ideal color to choose, but you can also decide whether the theme and color would depend on the wedding venues that you know or the other way around. If you have found a place that you really love but doesn’t match with your choice of colors, then maybe you’ll want to switch up a shade or two so you won’t have to spend much effort, time and money for things to distract everyone that the two don’t match. If your venue is more of a converted warehouse, you can definitely add as much or as little as you want to for your own wedding theme and color. If you’ve already finalized the venue, use it to come up with a perfect color scheme. DO NOT FORGET YOUR PRIORITIESEven though the venue has always been the biggest priority we all should be considering, we should also never forget the other details that might come before choosing your wedding theme and colors, too. If you’ve always desired of a wedding with overflowing orchids around, then that can be your clue on pointing out your palette instead of thinking of how to insert it later. Remember to always pick your wedding style first before deciding on anything. THINK SEASONALLYJust like how each clothing trend, the wedding theme, and color should be inspired by the time of the year. For spring, rosy pink can be perfect and a brighter coral scheme can be a summer staple. Fuchsia paired with other jewel tones make up a fall and a wintery combination can be a blush and silver. But remember, you are not required to stay away from your favorite colors just because of the rules for seasonal color. These are just one of the few things to consider when choosing your wedding colors. SET THE MOODThe wedding theme and color also sets the mood of the big day. If you want to have it in a full load of dark aesthetic, then a dark palette like ruby red is a better choice than pastel colors. Consider the style and atmosphere you want your wedding to have: do you want it to be relaxed or nostalgic? If you’ve already decided, think of what colors first come to mind. Remember, guests always notice those wedding details, too!  FOCUS ON WHAT YOU LOVEThe colors that can be seen in your home décor are definitely the ones that you love and you can live with for a long time. Check your clothes and accessories in your closet, and the first color of which you are drawn to can be your starting point for choosing your wedding theme and colors. OF COURSE, A LITTLE (OR MORE) RESEARCH COULD HELPLook for great sources of inspiration such as magazines, art galleries, blogs, or even a friend’s wedding. Definitely, we do not want to choose colors just because they are in. thus, checking art designs may help in finding a color and use it in a new way. You could also browse through BG Bridal Gallery's endless wedding inspiration and blogs for more!  TRY TO CONSULT THE COLOR WHEELYou actually do not need a degree in picking up a palette for your wedding dream, however, you need to go back to the basic principles and follow it. Usually, colors that go opposite to the color when are the ones that make a perfect combination because one is cool and the other one is warm. Also, colors that are neighbors are similar to each other and share a primary color. One tip: a classic palette for your wedding theme and color is a bright saturated one paired with a neutral one such as gray, blush or gold. DO NOT O-V-E-R-T-H-I-N-KStop or never drown yourself in the thought that you really have to get a strict wedding palette. When asking and finding out the right hues, remember that it doesn’t need to have a major role in your wedding. They are just meant to inform you of further wedding decisions like bridesmaid dresses, flowers, bouquet, etc. and it doesn’t mean that every single detail of the wedding matches perfectly. Therefore, do not focus on the wedding theme and color along, but also, think of other matters such as the mood of it. Have you decided on your wedding colors and themes? Let us know!
