Is there anything from pinterest you think is being way overdone?

Those leetle cutesy signs for starters. The ones that are artlessly chalked with homilies about “Taking A Seat, Not A Side” and the like. Oh, and an awful lot of so-called “vintage” which isn’t really vintage anything. Especially the utterly overdone photo filters that were used in the picture editing process.

Mason jars.  Signs.  Sparkler exits.

Pretty much anything on Pinterest is overdone.

I don’t even think this is a pinterest thing, just a… thing… but we had trouble finding a photographer that didn’t over-filter images. To the point where the sky was a funny color, or everyone looks like you put them through an instagram filter. True color, true black and white, that’s all I wanted. I just feel like the trendy filters are going to look weird in a few years. 

Honestly though, while some things are overdone ON pinterest, I have been to two weddings this year and none of them had the pinterest staples. Unless you consider a sparkler exit a pinterest staple, but I’ve been seeing those at weddings since I was a child, and I’m old(er) so that’s not really a pinterest “thing”.

Chalkboards, signs, mason jars, vintage/mismatch weddings…

Yes all the signs.  The “choose a seat not a side” makes me gag.  Also all the signs they give the ring bearer/flower girls.  Mason jars.

Those are the ones that stand out to me.

@regit45:  There are a lot of things that are “over done”. That’s what trends are all about. But, if someone likes something (over done or not) then so be it.

Two words: Mason jars

I don’t know if it’s even pinterest’s fault, though. I have a  friend who is NOT on pinterest and planned a mason jar-filled baby shower this weekend.

Haha another one for “choose a seat, not a side” and engagement pictures with signs that say “she stole my heart” and “so I stole his last name.” And pictures of proposals, mason jars, bird cages, etc.

@Hyperventilate:  Amen. Pinterest as a whole is overdone. It’s all the same crap.
