Vintage is not my thing but I would never bash someone’s dreams like this. This post is totally not called for. I understand it is getting harder to find modern inspiration but I would never say I “hate” vintage because I am frustrated I can’t find modern inspiration. This post is getting no one nowhere.

I wouldn’t say my wedding was vintage but I did throw in a few vintage ideas to pull my theme together and give it a unique forest look. It was as original as I could make it doing everything myself and with my budget. My theme was Midsummer Nights Dream and I got married on a theater stage. As much as I tried to be fun and different sometimes something popular fits or you just love it! No matter the wedding style the couple planning the wedding love it so I think if it reflects them and their love I love it for them. Does that make sense..I’m a little tired. Lol

@amandalsmiley: If I have learned one thing from time lurking on these boards, planning my own wedding and attending other peoples wedding it is this: No matter how much *I* might not personally like something, it is not *my* wedding. These brides you want to go off on probably LOVED their mustache prop. It was probably very them. She probably worked really hard to carry through this theme. If it isn’t your thing, cool, add it to the list of things you don’t want at your wedding, but don’t judge her because of it.

I can just hear some poor bride out there having her heart drop to the floor after reading this. I am sick of traditional, boring weddings, as I have BTDT howeverrrrrrrr to each their own. I love all weddings! I was watching TLC and one girl had a batman themed wedding. Go girl!

Yes, we all get catty sometimes, and there have been some heated boards, but this is ridiculous. As long as the bride was happy with her day, your bitchy opinion does not matter in the least. I’m not doing a vintage theme but My wedding will be about me and my FH, and I don’t give a damn if it’s been done to death!!
Are you wearing a white dress? How cliche!! *eye roll*

I get that vintage themed wedding ideas are everywhere and that it can be frustrating to plan a more ‘modern’ event. But there are nice ways to say that without insulting a popular wedding theme, and the many Bees who are using it.

I totally feel you. Although I’m afraid my own wedding was I guess what you would call vintage. I just posted my recap yesterday. I sure hope it wasn’t over the top. I simply chose a timeless victorian tea party in the woods. I tried to go for less shabby and more chic. But I agree, what the hell does a vintage stove with old useless nic-nacs on it have to do with the biggest commitment of your life or any other furniture for that matter. Since when did people become obsessed with old housewares and since when did something being old automatically make it charming and pretty. I tried to keep it in check. When people incorporate old things into their wedding just for the sake of it being old, it lacks any real thought or meaning. I hate all the mustache stuff too. I admit, there was a handlebar mustache in my pics as you will see but it was the one attached to my adorable husbands face, where it should be. Not plastered on every little favor. People should choose details because it has meaning to them. Bottom line.

Well good golly gee wiz!!!
So you hate everything vintage!! Well, Then my 1920’s wedding with rings, dress, hair, favors, in a vintage garden on the grounds of a 1900’s (actually, Hidden Springs was built in 1902) hotel is just going to SUCK for you.
Neither I or the other vintage Brides to Be planned it for you.
What was the point of this whole post, except for being rude?

I can understand if there is something that you personally are tired of or feel is overdone. How about starting over and asking who is doing a modern theme or mod theme or new theme or fresh theme wedding and encourage others to share new and different ideas instead of trashing another brides theme? I loved my vintage style wedding, but I also have a vintage eclectic personal style and have for my whole adult life. Fortunately we live in a time where we have lots of flexibility and creativity in planning our wedding.
Welcome to the boards – i am sure you can find like minded brides but might want to try a different approach?

soooo…. don’t have a vintage themed wedding?
Do you need a support group to do what you love? Why would you feel the need to “urge” anyone out of something they want to do? I don’t get the point.

Pssshh. Saying “Golly gee wizz” is like…so…vintage.

@amandalsmiley: Although I think you are only here to cause trouble, I wanted to comment….
I don’t hate vintage weddings, but I do hate weddings that incoprate damask stuff. Not my taste at all! It’s ugly. I don’t need to post a whole page about it, because to each their own! I’m sure the whole world doesn’t/didn’t/wont agree with the way your wedding was or will be.
