One easy way to keep it minimalist in a wedding is to stay with a clean color scheme, just as Kourtney and Jacob did for their December wedding at Legacy Acres. The crisp white palette helps keep the focus on what really matters — the unity of two people completely in love.
From coordinator Meredith Corning of Meredith Events:
Kourtney and Jacob were married on December 15, 2018, at Legacy Acres in Conway, Ark. Kourtney’s colors were white on white and she wanted a clean, crisp, and elegant winter wedding at a venue that matched this theme. Her family and friends were surrounded by a plethora of activity stations including a s’mores bar, a coffee and hot cocoa station, a quilt signing table and a caricature artist. Kourtney graduated nursing school the week of her wedding and she and Jacob have truly began an exciting new chapter in their lives. Kourtney implemented many budget-saving and DIY methods, so she could have the wedding of her dreams on a budget she could afford — and it turned out beautiful!
Keeping it minimal with budget-savvy ideas:
According to Meredith, “Kourtney focused the largest portion of her budget on a beautiful venue that encompassed many things she needed logistically and aesthetically. For example, the tables and ghost chairs were part of her venue package. She had access to a lovely bridal and groom building, which enabled them to get ready on site without the need for hotel rooms.
“The venue graciously granted her access to the building the week before, so her items could be dropped off on weekdays to avoid weekend delivery charges. She held her rehearsal dinner at her venue at no additional charge and even used their tables and chairs for that event.
“Kourtney purchased all the kids tables, s’mores bar, and coffee and hot cocoa bar items herself and brought those in to avoid extra caterer fees. She brought in her own fruit display to save an additional catering charge.
The florist she hired allowed her to pick up all her florals and rental items and drop them off the following week to avoid high delivery/pick-up charges, especially since the venue was 50 miles away from the floral and rental shop.
“She hired a local restaurant to cater, which was thousands of dollars more cost-effective than a full service event caterer.
“Her display cake was styrofoam and sheet cakes were kept in the back. One real piece of cake was marked for cake cutting photos, but the caterer cut and served the sheet cakes from the kitchen.
“Her DJ & Photobooth was a discounted package offered by the same company.”
We love how Kourtney was able to implement her dream wedding in such a minimalist fashion.
Enough talking. Give me the photos:
