Considering the rollercoaster of events that has happened, this year has forced brides-to-be to reconsider wedding plans in the meantime. But just because you’re foregoing a grand affair for a more intimate setting doesn’t mean you can’t have a wedding that exudes style and personality. In fact, a smaller guest list means more room to wiggle in terms of details and execution.
Need some inspiration to get started? Here are some chic wedding theme ideas that will look gorgeous even with a tight-knit group.
Can’t decide on a color palette? You can’t get any more timeless than an all-white palette, which will never go out of style. White is clean, chic and crisp, and immediately creates a striking effect when used in a monochromatic theme. It’s perfect for whether you’re a modern, cosmopolitan bride or more of a feminine and romantic type.
Have your bridal party or guests decked out in matching white dresses for some seriously gorgeous photos.
Here’s another great take on the all-white concept: style your reception in tonal schemes, using various shades close to white as well as different textures. The subtlety in details won’t be missed and add a curated flair to your styling!
These striking phalaenopsis blooms stand out even more against a neutral arrangement-- a stunning choice for your bridal bouquet without going over the top.
Another fantastic option for a bridal bouquet: feature bleaches leaves for a truly monochromatic set of blooms!
Rustic has been a go-to theme for years now, but its charm never seems to run out. A rustic, romantic theme especially feels more authentic and fitting for an intimate, heartfelt wedding! This wedding theme easily and effortlessly incorporates personal touches that have significant meaning to you and your loved one. Kick the theme up a notch with more intentional, curated elements like a dedicated color theme and long farm tables.
Add a twist to the usual floral centerpieces with draped fabric and fresh fruit for an old-world, harvest time theme.
Can’t decide on a color palette yet? Consider these dreamy pastels of blush and powder blue, a romantic motif that evokes the beauty of the French countryside.
Nothing says rustic like the image of hand-picked flowers that are reminiscent of a meadow!
For minimalist themes, the beauty lies not in what’s present-- but in what isn’t. Get ready to embrace symmetry, negative space, and tonal palettes for a beautifully understated theme that looks chic and modern.
Not a fan of foliage lining the aisle? Keep it clean, simple yet intentional with uniform chairs that have a streamlined silhouette. These wooden charcoal bistro chairs showcase refined craftsmanship that don’t need a lot of dressing up.
When thinking of bridal bouquets, opt for consistency over variety. Think of flowers that aren’t too frilly-- tulips or calla lilies make for great examples!
Here’s another option for your set of blooms: walk down the aisle with a gypsophilia bouquet, adorned with a ribbon.
Remember when calligraphy was everywhere? For a truly minimalist theme, ditch the precious brushed strokes for a clean, modern and precise script typeface for your wedding sign. Keep it simple against a single block color for the background, or glass.
Add a delicate touch to your pared-down reception with a clean, symmetrical and no-frills cake, adorned by a twig.
Perfect for the carefree bride, the bohemian theme is always on trend. Rich neutrals and modern accents add a stylish update to this Instagram-worthy look, and looks even better in a more intimate setting.
A geometric backdrop and a neon sign create a contemporary and free-spirited vibe to your wedding, even with a tight-knit guest list! You can use your names for the lights, or a wedding hashtag if you have one.
Go nude! For the aisle, opt for wild foliage that is reminiscent of fields, instead of polished and intricate flower arrangements.
Don’t feel like you need to stick to just flowers. Reflect different shades of neutrals and textures in your bridal bouquet by using different kinds of dried leaves and plants!
Woven baskets, furniture and decor are always a crowd-pleaser in any boho reception.
