A famous industrial designer said “Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is about making something memorable and meaningful “
I feel like the same holds true for weddings.
When we were planning our wedding, my husband and I would always be asked what our plans and details were – from what kind of invitation we were going to have to whether we were going to have a dessert buffet or not. And then of course, I was constantly asked as to what kind of flowers I was going to use.
Discussing and understanding what mattered most to the both of us gave us the freedom to simplify and strip out anything extraneous. What was important to us was to have our closest family and friends be a part of our special day; and of course, for everyone to have a great time.
We did that without all the bells and whistles and kept things simple. It wasn’t about having a minimalist wedding; it was about less, but better. It was about eliminating the non-essential and focusing on making sure everyone had a good time with great food, lots of drinks, hilarious speeches, and each other’s company.
Our wedding wasn’t exceptional in any way but, it was memorable and meaningful and that’s all that really mattered.
