I think illusion necklines are really popular now. Maybe in twenty years time we’ll think, why did we add an almost transparent layer to the neckline? The same goes for those beautiful backs that we see a lot now. Maybe in a few years time this will look very dated. 

Those poofy dresses from the 80s sure look dated, so I’m sure the trends now will look dated once too.

yogahhh:  Haha yeah! And those moustaches for the photo booths. In twenty years we’ll be thinking ‘what’s with the silly objects on those pictures!’

(don’t hate me everyone with this style dress!!)

I think we’re going to make fun of the EXTREME trumpet/mermaid dresses, where it’s fitted and then BAM — sh*t tons of fabric, swirls, tulle, ruffles, layers, etc. that stick out in all directions like a broom. I may be wrong, but I think it’s a pretty recent dress shape. So I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets kicked out within a decade!

LoveMyBrit:  i was going to say the exact same thing! i think that the dresses that our mothers think look weird will likely be the same dresses that our daughters will someday make fun of us for…

AddieNicole:  mjmjwoo:  Totally. Anything unique and too drastic = fodder for our daughters to tease us 😉

 

A little different from the bride’s dress, but: I think we’ll also look a little side-eyed at the “do whatever you want, bridesmaids” trend. And I say this as someone who told her bridesmaids to wear knee-length dresses in a given color of whatever design/price/style they want. I just think the super-similar cookie-cutter look is in the past, and now it’s swinging towards a free-for-all. I’m guessing people will be looking back on photos going “it’s so disorganized! so sloppy!” and we’ll swing back around to more polished looks. Just a guess!

LoveMyBrit:  I’m dress shopping this week and while I dont know what I wany I know what I don’t what… This!! I feel like every bride has this form fitted, exaggerated style now. It’s not original at all. Like the halo ring . It’s a trend. On my day I want to look like me. Not like a cookie cutter of every dress you see on syttd!

LoveMyBrit:  yes! I’ve been thinking the same thing, even though I admittedly live some of the looks of these dresses at present. I think the ones with VERY stark flares, like super fitted and then a HUGE flare out without any flow whatsoever will date the most.

I also wonder about the tons of ruching all over a dress, especially in shinier fabrics, and anything with a lot of “bling.”

I think what I consider timeles are designs with a lot of structure that we typically associate with couture. I also think simplicity in terms of the fabric and patterns/embellishment (if any) are more timeless. I think designs that are stunning on their own and don’t need a ton of embellishment or elaboration, and that fit the body truly well and don’t rely on things like ruching to help the fit look right will better stand the test of time.

It will be interesting to see…I wonder if our mothers knew they were being trendy or truly believed their choices were timeless? It’s impossible to know!

The crop top wedding dresses

 

That being said, I’m not concerned with the need to have my wedding dress – or our wedding in general – to look classic and timeless.
