You’ll Love These Minimalist Wedding Invitations That Prove Less Is More

By now, you’re probably well-versed in the minimalist wedding dress trend. Layers of tulle and crinoline have (mercifully) been stripped away so the structure of the dress is edited, gorgeous, and simple without being fussy (and, in some cases, kind of sort of naked).

While it’s important to make sure you’ve said yes to the right dress, we think it’s just as important to have stationery that speaks to your style and aesthetic. And if you’re a die-hard minimalist, good news: we’ve got lots of wedding invitation ideas for you.

Not every bride wants or needs calligraphy script dripping with flora and fauna (us included). Sometimes the focus should be on the raw materials—the weight of the paper, the quality of the ink, the negative space where there’s no design at all.

But even though the wedding industry tends to favor over-the-top frills and fonts instead of edited and easy invites, there is hope! We’ve shown you the cool-girl secrets behind modern wedding cake toppers, and now, behold: We’ve rounded up some of our favorite minimalist invitations that prove that sometimes, even in one of the girliest of industries, less is more.
