It bothers you that other people like a rustic theme, so you’re looking for other people who like the rustic theme to commiserate with? Doesn’t that seem a little silly?

I don’t think that it makes it any less special, honestly, if other brides have it too. Pick what you want and don’t let what other brides do affect the way you feel about it. It doesn’t hurt you any.

I don’t think I noticed wedding trends as much until Pinterest and the WB.  But, I’m with you on being sad that the things you love being trendy/popular and it makes you feel less unique.  But, as some bees mentioned in a thread I wrote about how I was tired of all lace dresses b/c they had gotten so popular (and was upset b/c I had wanted a lace dress myself before it became so popular), most people within your circle of friends/family won’t know what’s trendy in the wedding world and won’t be doing what is trendy.  I’m from the city (NYC to be precise) and NONE of my friends have done the rustic theme.  So, while it might be “trendy” or “popular” right now, it’s probably not as trendy or popular as you think!

Don’t let it get you down! I live in Tennessee and we had a BBQ themed, mason jarred, string lit , burlap table cloth filled, wildflower wedding. Sounds familiar, right?? Well- NONE of our guests had ever been to anything like that and loved it! Every wedding is unique and has the special touches that will make it very ” you”!

I think it’s a little ridiculous when people get upset that the theme they like is becoming popular. If it weren’t popular – you never would have heard of it. And gotten the inspiration. You say that this style has always been popular in your area, and I’m sure to some extent it has been. But I’m sure the recent surge in popularity has helped inspire you to take these ideas to the next level.

 We were married outside, our dogs were part of the ceremony, mason jars, burlap, wildflowers were all part of our wedding. But we chose those things because they fit us as a couple, not because it was trendy or popular. Our day was very relaxed and fun, which is what both my hubby and I wanted.

As long as you are having the wedding you want don’t worry about what others are doing. 🙂

A little bit. Although, it is sort of nice that what I’ve always wanted for my wedding is a “trend” so maybe I won’t face as much opposition from his family full of wedding planners.

I’m a little bothered by the vintage styled trend, which kind of goes hand in hand with the “rustic” weddings, because we’ve always been into vintage clothing, and dress in a rockabilly fashion more often than not, but my birdcage veil and short vintage styled dress will be a trend anyway. 

So yes, it bothers me a little bit, but then I remember that everyone who is at my wedding KNOWS US and knows that this is our style anyway and will know that our wedding is a reflection of our style, personality, and who we are, and really it doesn’t matter if we’re doing “trendy” things, because it’s going to be awesome and perfect.

I’ve never been to a rustic wedding in Cincinnati or in NYC.  I think they’re not as trendy as you think they’re just really popular with bloggers and pinterest users for some reason.  Either way I think they’re gorgeous and love looking at the pictures.  I didn’t have one though.  Most people have no idea what wedding trends are, so they’ll be super amazed at your wonderful day 🙂

I have seen alot of girls like that style or PIN alot on their pinterest, but i have only seen one girl do it. But her theme and colours were sort of all over the place so it was sort of sporatic. 

So i would say i have yet to be to a true rustic wedding. Ours will be country rustic chic. Mason jars, lace, burlap, straw, hand made decore and favours, candle light and birch. I’m super excited because i have yet to see anyone do it like that. 

I have seen alot of diamond filled weddings thus far to be honest.

The important thing to keep in mind is that only you and the ladies who are engaged/recently married are actually up on wedding trends. I guarantee that 90% of your wedding guests will never know that “rustic” is a popular theme right now.

I’ve heard “Wow, having a photobooth is so unique!” about a bazillion times in the last year. Five out of the last seven weddings I’ve been to have had a photobooth (and we will too)!

I agree.

All the things I want to do are ‘trendy’ on wedding websites and Pinterest, but you know what? they’re not trendy in my circle, so no one else who knows us will do it!

I’m happy they’re trendy elsewhere – otherwise how else would I get all my awesome ideas?! Laughing
