Does anyone feel as though the burlap, chalkboard, mason jar, candy bar, obvious sign trend is slowly dying? Don’t get me wrong, i think the trend itself is beautiful but i’m looking for more.
My bestfriend is getting married next year and i am assisting her with decorations. I want to know what’s new, how can we make her wedding look different.
What new, upcoming wedding trends have you noticed?

Gatsby theme up next, which is unfortunate because I like art deco, but not cheesy art deco ripoffs, and not Gatsby. Ah well.

We are already seeing a return to elegance and glamour in a big way.

I think’s it a play on the Gatsby theme, but I really like the New Year’s/Time theme. Basically, a lavish night time event.
A little sparkle, a little glamour – MY FAVE!

@sharontobemarried: Art Deco (some call it “Gatsby”). I love the look and think it could be pulled off by a lot of people without making them look like posers. I’ll come right out and say the city folk-country wedding thing still strikes me as silly.

I totally agree with the above posters! I also think ballgowns are on the way in, mermaids/fit and flares on the way out!
Also, I think boho/natural is going to be big. That’s my prediction for… maybe 2015.

Hmmm, has anyone seen any “Gatsby” themed weddings hit pinterest yet?

@howsweetitis: I agree that ball gowns are making a come back while mermaids are fading

I also agree that the shabby chic & rustic days are numbered.
I think we are moving into a more GLAMOUROUS ERA…
Haven’t seen “Gatzby” yet on Pinterest… but it sure is alive & kickin on GOOGLE IMAGES (including some theme inspiration boards)
GOOGLE – Gatzby Wedding = https://www.google.ca/search?q=gatsby+wedding&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=Z7k7UtSKNLC4yAH6kICYCQ&ved=0CC8QsAQ&biw=1366&bih=610&dpr=1
So delish, I’d love to get invited to one of these Weddings, and break out my formal wear
BUT then again… it isn’t for everyone… it will require the right FABULOUS Venue, and a good bit of money to pull it off effectively
Hope this helps,

@sharontobemarried: Yep, they’re on there. Some really cool cakes. I wish people would stop calling it Gatsby. The Great Gatsby was one book, it shouldn’t define an entire era. I’m gonna start calling it Boardwalk Empire haha. A Nucky Thompson wedding!

I agree that it shouldn’t be called “Gatsby” but I love that style. We have hints of art deco, prohibition/bootlegging, and the 1920s, but we aren’t doing it ALL OUT like I see a lot of people are starting to do.
Jay Gatsby was painted as super plush and elegant, and threw extravagant parties, so it makes sense people want to use that as their wedding decor, specially with the movie reboot, but I’m inclined to believe people didn’t actually read/watch because it involves a lot of heartbreak, infidelity, and death, haha.

@Aquaria: LOL @ Nucky Thompson wedding. I like it! It’s different.

We don’t have a theme but our venue, the fact that it’s black tie and late night is really leaning towards gatsby
Venue: but without this paper decor stuff
Which I was told was “very gatsby” by the women at the shop (???)
