Hello All! I’ve been lurking these boards for a long time & FINALLY decided to join and become an “official” Bee! I am in the beginning process of planning my wedding. I have been obsessed w/using pomanders & shepherds hooks to decorate the sanctuary of my church. My ? is, Are pomanders too outdated? I get that wedding trends constantly change…they were all the rage a few years ago, but now it seems that burlap, mason jars, & lace have taken over as being the most popular tend right now. While I admire this current trend, it real isn’t what I wanted to do. I know I’m probably being silly in asking because tow tell you the truth, I am sure no one is going to care about decor as much as me…lol! So tell me ladies, should I use pomanders? I was also thinking about using them for possible centerpieces, but I’m not sure…I would love to know what you think & if anyne has suggestions /ideas, feel free to give your input. TIA

Naaahhhhhh, it’s not outdated. I like pomanders and you should use them if you like them too. Remember that any “trendy” wedding things only seem trendy to people who are actively planning weddings. Most guests aren’t dealing with wedding planning and will see it as a cool detail rather than something that is overdone.

@Soon2BeeFirstLadyJee: Mason jars, burlap, chalk boards etc are all nice ideas but IMO soooo overdone! If it’s not your thing don’t feel obliged to do it just because it’s trendy.
My flowergirl had a pomander but it was a bit heavy for a 3 year old. She took her job very seriously though and wouldn’t let anyone else carry it. She had the ribbon up her arm like a handbag, it was adorable! I say go for it!!

I think they’re cute. If you like them and they look good with your other decor then go for it! Unless one of your guests has recently planned a wedding or has gone to a lot of them then it’s not likely that they’ll even recognize that it’s been a trend.
