Fresh flowers, gleaming silverware, sparkling crystal, flickering candles, crisp white linens.

Candles, roses, and the color white will always be timeless I think.

White linens and flowers such as roses in neutral/light shades (some florals do date and then return like carnations/baby’s breathe recently have!).

I don’t think any part of attire or accessories will be timeless. Even the classic ballgown has changed over the years. 

I agree with some of the things that PPs listed though. 

To add:

a cake (although I see many brides using cupcakes but I think that’s more of a trend)

Nothing. I think everything changes and will come and go over the years.

ClassicCorvette:  thank you – the truth is that I think everything will look dated eventually. Who knows where things will go in the future! It is incredibly easy to pin any wedding to its decade, and so whatever we think is timeless now will eventually be the 20-teens – but that isn’t a bad thing, at least in my eyes. So, I hope, the things that continue throughout the ages will be joy, love, and happiness, however they are manifested in weddings 🙂

Low floral centerpeices, rose petals, candles, white linens, classic A line cut dresses with lace, long veils, classical music, tux’s with black or white ties, floral bouquets.

stargurl101:  I agree with all of these. Obviously small details of any wedding will date it, but if timeless is what you are aiming for, that’s the way to go about it.

Flowers in general, candles, groom in tux, bride in white, I think these things will always be timeless. Everything else will change I think but that’s ok. I look at other wedding photos from over the years and they all represent the time period they were married in, and more importantly I think that’s ok. I think we are the first generation to be so concerned with our weddings looking timeless and finding all the perfect details. Just choose what makes you happy, what looks good on you, and it will be beautiful and timeless for you!

For decor, I think neutral fresh flowers in simple glass vases, simple votive or tealight candles and crisp white linens are the most timeless. Favors in basic boxes or satchets. 

For attire, I tend to picture lace wedding dresses, black tuxes, long bridesmaid dresses in non-bright colors with some sort of strap or halter (mine were short, teal and strapless – I personally don’t see that being a timeless style hehe).

For ceremony “decor,” I think of any ceremony site with nature or religion involved in the backdrop as being timeless (winery grape vines, forest trees, beach front, church). Things like high-rise ceremonies (like in a restaurants with a view, for example) don’t strike me as being the same for whatever reason. A simpler flower arrangement either in the background or on either side of the couple tend to feel timeless to me.

Those are the things I could think of off the top of my head! That being said, I say do what you want – timeless or not – otherwise you may regret it and you’ll have those memories (and photos!) with you forever to remind you of the fact : )
