Weddings don’t always have to be over the top or a real formal affair. The recent nuptials of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to long time girlfriend Priscilla Chan reminded the world that low key can be a romantic and meaningful event. Around 100 friends of the couple gathered on May 19th at their home to celebrate Chan’s recent graduation. Or so they thought, to the guests’ surprise they were actually attending a wedding ceremony.
Katie Kindelan of ABC News Blog reports,“Priscilla Chan knew the man she was marrying would soon be worth billions of dollars but when it came to planning her dream day the now Mrs. Mark Zukerberg took a decidedly low-key approach.” The low key wedding was described as, “traditional. It was rustic. They had these great twinkling lights but it was candle-lit and there were very few flowers.”
Chan’s wedding dress was said to have cost less than what her new husband earns in an hour. Her wedding dress was simple yet elegant and beautiful. A low key or less is more approach may fit a couple’s needs and taste. From a simple wedding dress, a backyard wedding to minimal wedding flowers with the right selections along the way you can pull it off. Wedding flowers don’t have to be an elaborate affair. A simple handtied wedding flower bouquet, a clutch of wildflowers, or a singular wedding flower in a vase for a centerpiece can be just the right look for your low key special day.
The Zuckerberg’s show us all you really need is what is important and meaningful to you!
