13 Minimalist Wedding Bands For Subtle Romantics

Fashion and lifestyle trends often end up crossing over to the wedding industry. Trendy colors that are hot off the catwalks soon make their way down the aisle and fashionable foods are usually seen at wedding breakfasts. It makes sense that minimalist wedding bands are having their moment in the spotlight, especially considering the rise in popularity of minimalism.

Folks who are into minimalism likely wish to incorporate the less is more vibe into their special day. From a low key reception, to a contemporary monochrome color scheme, or even eloping someplace exotic with your sweetheart; there are so many ways to showcase your love of minimalism on your wedding day. Being a minimalist is about putting less emphasis on stuff and more emphasis on people — as Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, The Minimalists, said, "Love people, use things. The opposite never works." When it comes to professing your love to your partner on your wedding day, a minimalist mindset seems to be the best attitude to adopt.

Even if you're just discovering minimalism as a lifestyle, but you're super into the minimal aesthetic, minimalist wedding bands will be the icing on the cake of your big day. Flashy, OTT wedding rings are beautiful too, but they're certainly not for everyone.
