When you hear the words luxurious and minimalism you probably don't think they can go together like your comfy cotton tee and favorite pair of jeans. But we're here to tell you to rethink your image of what luxe and minimalist can be.
They may seem like contradictory styles, but they can work well when styled right. So if you're the kind of bride-to-be who loves the idea of both looks, here is a simple style guide to help you pull off a luxe minimalist vibe that's a perfect balance of both.
First, the gown! Natalie boasts a modern sheath design that's both simple and elegant. It's made of high quality crepe chiffon and the sleeves and waist are accented with pearl beads. This understated, but luxe look gives you plenty of room to play with dramatic details.
You can keep your bridal makeup glamorous, yet still minimal by creating a vintage Hollywood look. Try a bold red or coral lipstick and a simple smoky eye. The great thing about these colors is that they fit any season. The warm shades compliment summer and fall, but also bring a cozy feel to spring and winter.

Accessories can make or break a bridal style. For luxe minimalism keep it basic, but bold. In other words, skip the necklace and don a pair of statement earrings like the beaded pearl chandelier earrings above. The beads compliment the beading on the gown and give you the right amount of sparkle.
And speaking of sparkle...a strappy heel in glittering champagne is the perfect way to complete your minimalist luxe bridal look. The ones above, by Betsey Johnson, are undeniably alluring and go well with both a modern and vintage look.
