Summertime is prime season for wedding planning and designing custom wedding cakes. As the summer heat rises in August, so do the prices at catering companies, florists and wedding dress boutiques. If you’re looking to book your August wedding on a budget, why not look into a striking minimalist wedding design when planning for your big day! A minimalist wedding theme will provide you an opportunity to put together a simple elegant wedding that will make your special day stress free and keep your wallet full and happy.
Have one design element.
The key to minimalism in general, is investing in the things that you need, not just what you want or what will look good. As you begin designing your wedding ceremony and reception, it’s so exciting to be looking through catalogs and Pinterest boards. Once you have found your inspiration, limit it to what will fit your budget and taste.
Stick to a simple, limited color palette.
You’ll create a bigger impact in your space if you choose one or two colors and let everything else be neutral. Minimalism interiors typically focus on bright colors that pop to the eye and play well with neutral colors like white or beige. When choosing colors for your minimalist-themed wedding, keep in mind the type of flowers the bride might carry or the shades of dresses that the bridesmaids may where, and then coordinate from there.
Don’t over-decorate the tables.
Keep the linens simple and the china white or any other neutral color you like. Keep the table decorations simple and elegant throughout the room. Too many large table decorations can make the space feel tight and cluttered. You want your guests to be comfortable and feel as if they are in an open space, not trapped in an abundance of crystal vases and flashy flowers.
Along with the tables, skip chair covers, and instead choose a chair that needs no cover or sash and looks nice on its own. Your guests aren’t going to be concerned about what’s on their chair, so save the time and money and keep the chairs plain.
Don’t waste money on artificial lighting.
Lighting at any event really sets the mood. Dim lighting is romantic and intimate and, bright light is great for clear photographs and lively get-togethers. At your minimalist wedding, natural lighting may be is the most cost-effective way to go. You’ll save money for sure, and your guests will celebrate with you in an environment that is lively and beautiful. Natural light can really help bring out the decorations you choose and the colors everyone wears. And natural light keeps changing; the talented and experienced photographer you hired for your minimalist wedding will be able to exploit the shifting shadows of the day to increase the drama in your photos.
Choose a striking minimalist cake design.
Your cake is one of the biggest highlights of the whole wedding. Guests will come into your reception space and one of the first things their eyes will set on is the cake.
Once you have chosen your theme, color and additional details as we just discussed, Baked by Susan will custom your design to be however simple or detailed you’d like it to be. Maybe you just want a small, simple cake or may keep the simplicity but add a few layers. Whatever way you would like your cake, Baked by Susan can custom design it for you!
