i feel you. usually if I like something and then it becomes a trend, I grow a distaste for it. 


there are a few wedding trends i am willing to go for tho, like candy buffet favours. mainly because i think they can be time and cost efficent.

I feel ya. I kind of had the same sort of thing–I wanted to have a one-shoulder dress for at least 2 years before it became a trend. Well, I had to wait for the proposal, but even then we went to 2 weddings months before my own where the bride had a dress like that, not to mention the fact that the trend was really taking off all over the place. It made me a little sad because I was trying to do something somewhat unique, it’s not my fault I had to wait for the ring first! (lol)

Choose something you love.. doesn’t matter if its trendy or mainstream now.

When I was pulling back ideas, I didn’t even know there WERE themes to weddings. And somehow along the way, mine ended up being rustic/romantic.

I’m not being trendy.. it’s just what I love. Would have done it reguardless of the trend.

@MrsMRS:  Yep. So annoying, isn’t it? Our venue was built in 1926 and screams Gatsby. I had not really planned on a theme, but with the way the venue is we will definitely have a Gatsby feeling and have lots of art deco accents. Its also a black tie wedding so it works perfectly. We got engaged in 2011 and this has been my plan all along.

Suddently this is everywhere!! I know people have done them before and its not completely new, but I’ve read that it is expected to replace the rustic trend, where every other wedding is art deco. UGH!

I know people say, ‘do what you like.’ But I like to be different and not trendy, thats the problem. At least my dress is still super unpopular, I would be really annoyed if all of a sudden I started seeing it everywhere. I can understand why you’re upset about the blush thing 🙁

The beautiful part is that it’s very unlikely you’ll end up going to another “trendy” wedding. I’ve never been to a wedding with mason jars or in a barn. We’re having ours in this cool loft space, and I was upset when Future Father-In-Law and his wife went to a wedding there…except that it was way different than ours is going to be. I’ve yet to see a wedding there that’s even close to ours, so that’s awesome.

Thwe thing about wedding trends is that only the bride knows it’s a trend because only the bride obsessivly checks WB/Knot/WW etc etc!

You’ll still have a super gorgeous wedding and to the majority of your guests, it will be unique!

@MrsMRS:  Just do what I do and pick trends that have already come and gone!

Lol. I’ve always dreamed of doing a 50’s high fashion inspired wedding, and with Mad Men’s popularity it made that so popular! I’m glad now that it has died down, but either way it’s what works for us as brides. There will always be a difference, to me, between people who are setting something up or dressing a certain way because of a fad, and people who are doing it for themselves. So I’m sure you will stand out!

In the South we’re still doing chevron everything and barns and mason jars. So here, your idea is very unique!

@MrsMRS:  As a fellow woman who is often accidentally trendy, I feel your pain. I wanted a lace dress for my wedding to ExH years ago, but my mom thought it looked too old fashioned, which sucked because she was paying. Now look. Oh well; at least I get my lace dress for this wedding! I *almost* decided on a bright red dress but chickened out at the last minute, but then wedding dresses of many colors have started trending, too. Just can’t win for trying.

@MrsMRS:  BRIDEZILLA!!! (kidding!)

It will be unique because it will be yours. You will reflect back and be so happy you chose things that reflect you. Try as best as you can to block out the rest because it’s not important 🙂

@MrsMRS:  I feel your pain…when we started on our barn wedding journey, I had literally never seen one, although I wouldn’t dare say I was the first one with that idea, I just don’t think it had hit the level of popularity it has now. I think the best thing to remember is that your guests aren’t as wedding obsessed as us bees, won’t have been to a wedding like yours most likely, and therefore, to the people that matter (your guests), it will be totally unique and you. Weddings are all the same formula, with minor tweaks here and there, there really is no such thing as one that is 100% original, never to be repeated. However, every wedding is one of a kind in that it’s you and your Fiance, and your loved ones. That’s what matters!

You might think your blush dress is trendy now, but 99% of the ladies out there will still be wearing white or ivory.  Until you mentioned it, I had no idea about Reese Witherspoon’s dress, and I’m sure the same can be said for many people at your wedding.

I wonder how much of it is just, now that you’re doing it, you notice it a lot more than you would have.  Like when you buy a new car, and then suddenly you notice all the people on the road who drive the same model.  If you had decided to go with another style, you would also be noticing other people doing the same thing too.
