A few weeks ago, a writer from BRIDES.com asked us for our opinion on minimalist wedding decor and we happily responded with some of our thoughts.

The term "minimalism" actually refers to an art trend that arose in the 1950s that focused on simple design elements. Artists like Yves Klein, Donald Judd, and one of my favorites, Frank Stella.
