(Closed) Anthropologie-esque, mason jar rustic theme. Overdone?!

    Go for the rustic/vintage theme. It's your wedding after all!

    The whole vintage thing is getting really overplayed. Modern elegance would be better.

    Combine the two for a modern/vintage shebang.

    Something else. I'll tell you in the comments.

    nobody follows wedding magazine’s “styles” unless they are a bride… so your guests whon’t know what is “in” or “out”, just do what you love!

    It’s your wedding, do what you want! Yes, the trend for it is certainly declining but that is because it got SO popular that it had to come back down to a more reasonable level at some point.  It gets weird when you have a vintage-rustic look but your venue is a sleek hotel. But an outdoor tent? That will be fine. I’ve seen the anti-vintage point of view on a lot of blogs, and from a lot of photographers just because it became so popular that people who attend multiple weddings a week were getting super bored of it. But you and your regular guests will probably not have that issue.

    ……and eventually ALL our weddings will look dated because in 30 years there wil be all new trends and people will say “wow, thats a real 2010s style wedding” when they see our pictures.

    I say do what you like..it’s your wedding. You’ll know what your style is once you start buying things. I never really picked out a theme, but after looking at hundreds of pictures and buying/ordering a few items I realized I was drawn to the vintage style wedding. Every wedding is going to be different even if it follows a theme…it;s going to reflect your personality and that’s exactly what a wedding should do.

    Do what you want and love. Like the PPs said, no one really follows wedding trends unless they’re a bride. For instance, I think the rustic look has been played to death in the online wedding world but I haven’t been to one single wedding IRL that’s had that theme. Same w/ photobooths, candy buffets, mustaches on sticks, etc etc. I could probably say with reasonable confidence that most of your guests aren’t up on what the blogs deem the latest, greatest, and oh so 2011.

    I just have to reflect what everyone is saying.  You should do what feels like you. I, too, am doing an outdoor vintage elegance feel (my venue is my parents estate — which is home to a Victorian Style farm house), and it not only reflects a lot of the inspiration that I am seeing (and am totally in love with) but it also very closely reflects my style and the decor in my home.  


    Also, previous posters were right… no one follows wedding trends unless they are 1. getting married, or 2. working tons of weddings, and the flipside of that is that your photographer should be a pro at catching all of the important details of the “vintage” wedding. 🙂
