Title says it all. This is not meant as a malicious post, just for fun! Trendy does not equate to ugly! In a lot of ways I kind of want to look “dated” in twenty years haha! So I can look at the pictures and go, awww that’s when I got married in 2015 🙂
So, what do you ladies all think?
(This post is kind of a spin off of the one I posted yesterday about general fashion trends)

@freshflowers: Probably my dress… It has a ruffly bottom! But I love it!

@sugar_biscuit: Ruffle bottoms are my FAVORITE!! I will most certainly be considering one for myself trendy or not 🙂

I think that the mermaid/trumpet trend will die off eventually and it will become that ubiquitous turn of the century look.
The dresses with the ribbony texture on the skirts will probably die off, as well.
Like this type of texture:
And double trend:

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
Strapless/strapless sweetheart for sure, plus belts/sashes, plus mermaid fit… all of it together and it says 20-teens to me!

Ruffles and belts. My dress had a belt and I loved it 🙂

Ruffles, and the ribbony dresses that look like tissue.

Keyhole backs. I’m seeing them on so many dresses these days and I really can’t think of other time periods where they were common on wedding gowns.
Of course that’s the exact style I picked out for my dress too, LOL.

This style in my opinion is the essence of “timeless”… however SO MANY brides wear all over lace dresses lately that I can’t help but think that this will be considered “trendy” of this decade years down the road

@freshflowers: Ombre dresses and those whose corset look like lingerie (sorry) are the only 2 that I can think of. I think most of today’s trendy styles are influenced by vintage or traditional styles so it makes it difficult to become ”dated” as they always carry some type of timeless feel. I’m not sure about ruffles (I love them and have them too), but I’d say they’re less likely to feel dated than other trends.

Probably a lot of dress styles (lace, mermaid, ruffles, strapless, keyhole backs)!
It’s not just the dress that dates pictures, but your hair, bridesmaids dresses, jewelry, makeup. A lot of things go into dating some pictures.
It’s going to happen to everyone’s photos so I wouldn’t be too worried!

I’ve never really seen a dress/wedding that doesn’t look dated. Some age more gracefully than others, but if you got married in 1987, your pictures look like they are from 1987, even if you bought an extremely restrained dress.
We’re not worried about it! FI actually wants to do some trendy stuff so that our wedding has a sense of time and place to it when we look back.

I am thinking that pick-ups on dresses will definitely look dated in a few years…the same way that big poofy sleeves on wedding gowns from the 80’s totally age a wedding photo.
