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.
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.
