Minimal doesn’t mean boring! If you’re a no-frills bride then you may be looking for something classic, chic but paired back for your wedding day look. These uber-cool bridal looks combine classic features with a modern twist and feature some of the most current bridal designers that create both beautiful and cool pieces for a modern bride that’s looking for a minimal modern bridal look for their big day.
Created initially for our BOND Bride 3 magazine this inspirational shoot was all about creativity and alternative minimal looks, to be featured alongside our wedding articles and inspirational shoots. The magazine is focused around our core ethos of inclusivity, being ethically minded, well-being over weight-loss, supporting UK indie businesses and holding feminist values.
When searching for a simple bridal look don’t just stick to dresses. Separates, suits and jumpsuits are just as perfect to create a stunning modern bridal look. Keep fabrics crisp and plain to create a clean, chic style. If you’re a bride that loves an accessory or two, you could add extra personality to your ensemble by picking stand out accessories that you can add and remove throughout the day to create different looks.
Makeup looks should be glowing and dewy. If you love a natural makeup look then this will sit perfectly with your simple theme. Think neutral shades mixed with subtle eye makeup. You can add pops of colour through your lipstick or keep the natural theme running through with a glossy or matt neutral shade. Gone are the days where we have to conform to the traditional wedding day makeup look, do what feels right for you.
If you’re looking to carry the minimal look throughout your whole wedding day then cut back on all the unnecessary ‘stuff’ use minimal florals, dried is a great alternative, think outside the box and use your surroundings to create ambience and vibe. Also having a minimal wedding generally means you create a much more eco-friendly wedding along the way… and we’re all about being more sustainable! Minimal wedding styling and outfits are chic, sophisticated and dramatic, in their own special way.
