I think lace will always be timeless. I bought a lace dress because our wedding style is going to be rustic/vintage and lace just screams both to me.
I wouldn’t really like a dress that I didn’t consider to be timeless. I have a satin ball gown that I love, and I think will stand the test of time. And if it doesn’t, so what? I don’t plan on using it fifty years down the road, so it doesn’t really matter.
a wedding dress is a wedding dress to me, as long as its white I think itll be ‘timeless’ mine also has pearls lace and rhinestones!
@CollegeBee3: This was huge for me. I worried a great deal about this before going dress shopping. One of my biggest things was having a dress that is so classically beautiful that when I look back on my wedding pics in 15 years I will still be happy I wore the dress I did. I made a decison to stay away from more trendy dresses or dresses with a lot going on (sequins, spakles, flowers, ruffles, etc), even though I thought some of them were also gorgeous.
I did end up finding a gown that I think meets this requirement…
They just randomly gave me this belt to try with it, but I even consider it too blingy for my taste and I will be going with a more understated one for sure.
At some point something in all of our weddings will look dated. I would just select your dress on the here and now and love it regardless!
I didn’t worry. Your photos will be dated eventually no matter what you do.
Some will be more timeless than others though.
I have a thory: In 5 years, all dresses look dated. In 10 years, they all look old. In 20 years, they all look HILARIOUS.
Then at 50 years, they come back around into being gorgeous!
Then at 100 years, they’re gorgeous and historic and too fragile to be actually worn.
So I got whatever I wanted! My kids are going to hate it, but my grandkids might love it!
I don’t worry about it at all! I’m only going to wear it once, so as long as it looks appropriate on my wedding day, it works for me!
FI and I have no issues with our wedding photos looking dated. We’re getting married in 2014. We’re going to look back at our wedding photos and say “oh look at the 2010s!” Having a time period associated with our wedding is something we see as a positive not a negative.
My mom got married in the 80s with a very restrained dress that could easily pass for “in style” today. But her wedding photos look straight out of the 80s, BECAUSE IT WAS THE 80S. And her dress wouldn’t have been in style 5 years ago, and probably won’t be in style 5 years from now.
