When it comes to planning a minimalist wedding, the venue plays an important part. A venue can’t be too much of anything, because the entire point, of course, is the edit. So when it comes to choosing the right venue, look for spaces that let your decor, and your story do all the talking. Neutral tones, white walls, simple, modern lines. Nothing too much, or even, to be honest, too little, finding the right minimalist wedding venue, is the ultimate goldilocks goal.
