For all my May 2013 brides out there in the hive, I know that it seems far away and what’s trendy now may not be trendy next year, or what’s “unique” now may be trendy next year. Are any of you Bees worried about this?

You have a while to decide. Remember dresses can take up to twelve months and as little as 3, most I have seen are 6-8 months. I would start researching which designers you are really drawn to and see how long their dresses take to order. Good luck with you dress buying, I can’t wait to see what you choose.

Are you aiming for trendy or unique? Personally, I don’t think my guests pay enough attention to know whats trendy, and most guests won’t go to more than a few weddings the same year as mine. I do worry that some things will be trendy and look weird years later, but its not something I stress about.

May 2013 bride here. I agree with the PP. Most of my quests are going to be oblivious to what is trendy and what is not. I mean, for crying out loud, Fiance is oblivious lol. I am picking my dress style and decor according to what I like, not what is trendy anyway!

Ooh I’m a May 2013 bride!! I really don’t even know what’s trendy right now, I’m completely clueless!! Honestly, unless your guests go to a LOT of weddings between now and then, they will know even less than I do about what the trends are or aren’t and will think most of your ideas are cool and different even if they came from 12 different Bee’s
Luckily for us, our wedding is more of a big picnic than a fancy wedding, so I think the only ‘trendy’ thing we’re doing is having cupcakes instead of a cake…but mainly because the cupcake place is special to us, not because they’re ‘fun’ or whatever. Although they are, LOL.

I’m staying away from wedding fads.

I can completely understand why you’d be stressed, but just pick out what you love and truly want, and you’ll never regret it no matter “what’s hot and what’s not”

Pick what you like, don’t think about what’s “trendy” or “unique”. I find that it’s all so subjective and depends on what individuals like anyways, you might as well go with what you like!

i understand what people are saying, just go with what you like. That is good advice.
While I am doing what I like, I also wonder if I like it because it is becoming trendy. I think that may be where Dub D is coming from with the question.
I do kind of worry about it as well. And im not worried about my guests thinking it is trendy, but I’m more worried about looking back on my photo’s and saying, “man, what was i thinking?” hahaha.
But my dream for the decor ( i have all the plans in my head but havent done anything in stone yet) will show my true colors, keeping it uncomplicated and showing what my/our tastes are. And my dream dress is relatively simple and ageless in contrast to some ornate or trendy gowns. However, I can look back on myself and see that I have changed so much since my youth and I think I will always grow and change my likes/dislikes. So I ask myself this question in my head when deciding as well. Will I look back 10, 20, or more years from now and still think it is beautiful?

We are having what I have dubbed a “hipster-informal wedding.” and we’re okay with that. Some of it is trendy, sure, but a lot of the “trends” are things we truly like – twinkle lights over the dance floor, colored shoes with the gown, etc.
