FI and I finding our wedding decor decisions to be driven much more easily by what we know we don’t want aesthetically.
For us it has to be ‘Fussy’. I don’t like lots of non-functional little bits and bobs added to wedding decor and design that doesn’t serve any function. FI is even more fantatical about it (showing him pinterest is the funniest thing ever) but we’re both happier focusing on designing the heck out of elements we find useful.
What about you? What are you working to avoid in your design and decor?

“Rustic”. Just not my style

Burlap! Also glam, modern, blingy, and luxe.
Our wedding is going to be somewhat rustic/vintage, but in a low-key way– we’re not making an effort to have that style be in-your-face obvious, but it’s a function of our taste, where we live, and our venue. 🙂

My single most hated words are blingy and rustic.

“shabby”<br />I think shabby chic looks and sounds terrible.

rustic for sure. we’re getting married at a country property, but it’s more ‘estate’ than ‘farm’ and i told my mother that i don’t want ‘rustic’, no burlap, no mason jars, no hay bales etc.

I like rustic – it’s always been my style and I was fairly taken aback when suddenly it was a ginormous wedding trend. Oh well.
We avoided “traditional”, “classy”, “fussy”, “glam”, “luxe”, all that. Not our style at all. We wanted a colorful inviting festive event that instantly put people at ease and in the mood to celebrate.

Bling/glam/glitz. I want a really soft, romantic, elegant feel, so having tons of crystals and rhinestones just wouldn’t fit in.

nocleverbeepun: I’m having an early September wedding and I’m tired of people telling me that I’m having a “fall” wedding. I know it is in September, but the weather here is generally in the 80s and it is in wine country. Lots of flowers and greenery.
I told my mom I wanted orange bridesmaid dresses and when we went out to look at them, I was looking at the tangerine colors and she told me that that was the “wrong orange” and I needed burnt orange for fall colors. I don’t have anything against those colors, but my colors are bright orange, navy blue and grey. I’m just tired of people telling me that my colors are “wrong.” She isn’t the only one who thinks I NEED fall colors.

Elegant – it’s a complementary word but its represents everything that’s not me. To me it means things that are too fancy, too fussy, and too overdone for me.

MechEBee: I get the same reaction to my early march wedding. ‘Ooh a spring wedding’ and the pastels come out. My wedding is ‘outside’ on the 10th floor of a Vegas casino, the most season less place on earth.
Also. Tangerine sounds amazing for the BM dresses.

lolot: My sister and I were talking recently about how annoying it would be to have something that is your personal style become a big wedding trend. Then again all your guests know you and your style so they see how much it reflects you as a couple.

Words I don’t want (and actually used this phrase with my florist in describing my vision) – NO country, rustic, or cluttered
