simple weddings

More and more couples are embracing simplicity when it comes to their wedding day. Less stress, less money, less headaches – it’s no wonder simple weddings are a growing trend.

Simplicity allows couples to focus on the bond they have with each other – rather than the extraneous details of a wedding. In fact, this is often the sole motivation for couples to have a simple wedding.

Having a simple wedding doesn’t mean it won’t be any less beautiful or memorable – in fact, the opposite is true. Want proof? Here are 16 gorgeous simple weddings that showcase stunning style, great locations and an overall laid-back feel. Click on the links before the photos to see the full weddings.
