I was just reading a post about larger stone or halo and the majority of the responses said Halos are just a trend yet people also refer to them as the vintage look. Well if it’s vintage doesn’t that mean it’s a style that is continuing rather than being a new trend? I do understand that there are styles that come and go and certainly solitaires never go out but who is to say a style such as halos will go out? At first my thought on halos were oh everyone has one but you could say the same about solitaires.
Same could be said for a sand ceremony. I was thinking that they were overdone yet nobody ever says that about a unity candle. What if sand ceremonies become such a norm that it will be the new traditional unity ceremony?
Just my brain overthinking the little things here 🙂 Does anybody else ever wonder if a trend can become the new norm? I certainly remember when people just sent out invitations and nobody knew what a save the date was 🙂

Every ‘classic’ trend has to be new at some point! White dresses were trendy at one point. People used to just wear the nicest dress they had. I think that some things that are considered trendy now will become traditional at some point. Who knows what kind of crazy things our kids will be planning when they get married!

I think that it certainly is possible that any trend can become a classic.
Personally, I’m not sure if I think that halos will turn into a classic- I’ve had several jewelers tell me that they are “trendy” right now, and that if they do go out, they’ll be like the Pear and Marquis shaped stones were in the 90’s and will look very dated.
Not that there’s anything wrong with having a ring like that- eventually, even the rings of the 90’s will be “vintage” and will start to come back in style. Even trends tend to be cyclical.
As for sand ceremony’s and other ceremonys (we’re doing a ring warming), I think that these are going to become more common. The sand ceremony IS a unity candle ceremony, basically, just with sand instead of candles.
I know a lot of people use this now b/c there are more beach weddings, outdoor weddings, etc. where candles aren’t as practical, or for people who just want to be different.
But, I’m like you- I felt it was overdone. I don’t feel attached to the unity candle or anything, so we’re doing a ring warming. If those catch on, I will be 100% ok with it, because I know I’m going to be the first of my friends/family to do one, so that will make me a trend setter 😀

Everything rotates in and out of style. I dont worry about what is in style though I just focus on what I love and what suits my personality.

I feel like a trend can become a classic for sure.
All of it is just a matter of oppinion.

IMO, there is no such thing as classic. Some vintages are more aesthetically pleasing to us at this moment. Some things are more iconic trends of their time than others, but even super boring stuff ends up looking like the time when it was created. We all want wedding that will look just as awesome to everyone at any given date in the future as they do when we plan them, but they ALL have a time stamp.

i honestly didnt even know halo’s were a trend until after i was engaged and became addicted to the bee and blogs – i love the look of them and i knew i wanted one. maybe my ring will go out of style, but i dont care – i love it! and maybe when im gone it will come back around and my future grandaughter will be so happy i left my ring to her haha.

I totally get how you feel! I’ve been getting really down on myself lately because I’ve been trying so hard to be “bridal” in my accessorie choices, and I’ve realized that I WANT the trendy look (ie really chunky necklace, no veil). I have a halo engagement ring, and I don’t care if it ever goes out of style. Its mine, I love it, and everytime I look at it, I’m reminded of the day he proposed. I think people should be true to themselves on their wedding, and forget the “classic” ideal. I want my wedding to be a snapshot of who I was at that moment, not who I hope to be for the rest of my life. Afterall, who remembers a vanilla bride? You ALWAYS remember the girl who did it her way and injected her personality into her wedding.

Regardless of what you argue I am still in the ‘halo’s are a trend’ boat.

@megn133: Well said! I completely agree with you 100 percent! I also have a halo and am absolutely in love with it. Not because it’s a trend, but because my FI picked it out all on his own and the memories and love that are associated with it. I think everyone wants a wedding that fits their style, whether it be trendy or classic or completely off the wall! We all need to remember it’s OUR day and there will always be someone who has a negative opinion about something. Do what makes you happy and also remember, we are celebrating spending the rest of our lives with our amazing SO’s. In a few years, details won’t matter, happiness will. : )
