Scandinavian weddings today feature two main directions: folksy and boho and minimalist and modern. Today we are discussing how to pull off a minimalist Scandinavian wedding and how it differs from usual minimalist and modern fetes.
Nordic and Scandinavian minimalism mainly differs from usual minimalism with its color palette – most of such weddings are done in white or neutrals, sometimes with pastel touches. You may see textural and dimensional floral arrangements but they are still minimal. Take a look at some examples.
Minimalist and modern wedding dresses are very popular today, and minimalist Nordic brides should go for one. Choose fitting silhouettes or an A-line wedding gown, a high or halter neckline, a cutout back, a plunging neckline or a deep V-neck and drapery. Don’t rock embellishments or lace, prefer plain fabric and simpler looks highlighting only your curves. Skip the veil, make a minimalist hairstyle and makeup.

Rock beautiful minimalist wedding decor with much greenery and no blooms or just some flowers. Prefer black and white for an ultimately elegant look or go for only neutrals to make your Nordic decor fresh. Make an oversized greenery wreath and sheer chairs to create a minimal ceremony space, hang an oversized floral or greenery decoration over the reception. As for tablescapes, go for neutrals, and spruce up your neutral table setting with gold or copper cutlery. Matte chargers and plates are right what you need to make the tablescape feel more modern. Mark each place setting with greenery sprigs or little blooms to refresh the neutral shades.

Your wedding cake should match your wedding theme and colors: prefer a minimalist one, maybe a pure white or a blush cake. Don’t go semi-naked or don’t use too much decor, keep it to a couple of green sprigs, a single bloom or some gilded berries.
