Decor inspiration for a minimalist wedding

Recent wedding trends have focused on dramatic, colourful and opulent finishes. However, it is not for everyone. Many couples are drawn to simplistic finishes. You don’t always need tonnes of decor to make a statement.

The minimalist trend is all about less-is-more. Think neutral colours, natural fabrics, organic elements, accent metals and lots of glass pieces. Clean lines and key pieces create a sophisticated look perfect for weddings.

Minimalist wedding decor directs attention to where it should be: the newlyweds. Here is some decor inspiration that prove that there is beauty in simplicity.


Quality white paper and simple black script are a perfect pair. Add flair with some dried botanicals and a unique letter stamp.

Welcome sign:

Welcome your guests in perfect minimalist style. Your welcome sign can feature lots of blank space and minimal words to achieve this simple yet striking finish.


High ceilings, exposed wood and white walls work best for a minimalist wedding venue. We love how just some string lights and greenery take this venue from drab to fab.

For a beautiful yet simple photo backdrop, consider a wall of hanging lights. Your images will be stunningly and romantically lit, and its very affordable.

Say hello to fabric banners!! A custom table plan we did for last weekend’s gorgeous wedding. ✨ Fun fact — this is the first time you are seeing a bit of me here on Instagram, as I find it way more comfortable to work behind the scenes. That being said, I might as well do a short introduction. I’m Alexandra 👩‍💻, the creative director and owner of this crazy, amazing business that I’m luckily able to build up and improve every day, here in Romania. 🇷🇴 Papira originally started as a one women biz with a lot of heart and creative effort behind it. Slowly the need to bring on more alike souls made itself evident, now being a close bunch of 4 awesome people. As for what the future holds, we may only hope to bring new, innovative ideas and make this business grow into a proud legacy. An interesting fact about me, I actually got a degree in systems engineering. 🤓 That’s to show you guys you never know where or what you may end up doing in life. Thanks for following along and showing so much love and support! ❤️

Seating numbers:

If you’re having multiple tables, let your guests know the number with these minimalist table signs. A clear card with block lettering works very well for this theme.

Sweetheart table:

Minimalism does not have to be boring! With just a few candles, flowers and a frame, this sweetheart table has achieved picturesque perfection. The flowers add a softness to the angular frame that dominates the table, giving a great balance to the overall effect.

Dang girl, that's one stunning table💕💥I've got some tips to elevate your head table! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even if you can't dress up your guest tables for budget reasons, go all out on your head table! Here's my reasons why you should make your head table fab: — remember that every single one of your guests will be looking at it for a good amount of time (because your pretty self and your wonderful love will be sitting there) — you'll have quite a few of those professional photos of you two lovebirds at this location, so make those photos extra special — and come on-who's this party for? YOU! You deserve an amazing table because after all, you're the guest of honor! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Okay, so here are some tips for an unforgettable head table: 1️⃣ The base is an all important starting point. Invest in specialty linens + napkins. Add color, luscious texture, and amazing color, and maybe even a fun pattern. 2️⃣ Consider extra special seating for the bride and groom stylish chairs or a gorgeous vintage loveseat are just the ticket (I mean, these ghost chairs are so fab if I do say so myself) 3️⃣ Specialty dinnerware can really set the mood for your tablescape. Rent some gorgeous pieces, or remember those plates and silverware you put on your registry that you just can't wait to get? Go purchase them and use them on your head table! 4️⃣ Candles really up the romance factor. Add plenty of candles to your tablescape, and dress them up in specialty holders to continue your color story. 5️⃣ It's commonplace for the brides and maids to plop their bouquets on the head table. Why not get a few gorgeous low floral designs instead, and use the bouquets elsewhere in the reception space? This table features one stunner of a centerpiece and a few blossoms tucked into modern budvases. 6️⃣ See that arch behind the head table? What a gorgeous way to add extra drama and to bring all the attention on you and your love! If your ceremony pieces are movable, use them to your advantage at the reception!

Simple, white plating is all you need for a minimalist wedding. Have some fun with the menu by using curlycue scripts.

Table decor:

Place single leaves of greenery in modern terrariums or vases for some minimalist decoration. These table decorations are soft yet modern, creating a wonderful juxtaposition.


A natural linen banner makes for perfect signage. Print a short slogan on the banner for some simplistic decor.


Cakes have become very extravagant in recent years. Take it back to simplicity with this minimalist design. We love how they incorporated a simple vine into this layered cake.
