@WhiteWedding:  Sorry! It really is something I don’t like, but mine has no theme at all ๐Ÿ™‚ I have seen some pinterest boards where damask does look really nice, it’s just really not “me” at all….SORRY!

I am also sick of the oh so unique vintage weddings. However “I urge you 2013 brides to bring the class back!!!” is such a snobby and rude comment! Your post is not very classy so I find this ironic. Have fun at your “classy” wedding…..

The thing about the internet wedding world is that things that seem “overdone” and “cliche” are not actually used as much as it seems like they are. The vintage, rustic and shabby chic style has been popular for a few years now on the wedding blogs and magazines so it makes it seems like it’s all everybody is doing. It’s not really a good representative sample of real weddings.

The beauty of a wedding is that it’s a personal reflection of the couple. Every bride and groom are entitled to plan the wedding that they love. One of the reasons I love Weddingbee so much is that we have people from all different walks of life and I have seen brides planning everything from backyard BBQs and Vegas elopments to traditional church weddings and $100k platinum bashes. Everyone is welcome here. ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. We didn’t have a “vintage” wedding… but we did mustaches in our photo booth. They’re fun. That’s why people do them.

I like the vintage theme – if done correctly. I must say your post did make me laugh, haha, especially the moustache part.

Good thing I didn’t invite you to my wedding next week that is vintage garden theme. I guess Ill just go throw out all my DIY’s and personalized touches just because some ass on the Internet didn’t like it. Seriously, get a hobby girlfriend.

How about instead of bashing other random people’s weddings, you take some time out and figure out a theme for yourself. Vintage weddings aren’t my thing but if that is the direction someone wants to go then more power to them, it’s none of my business and has no effect on my life so therefore I have no reason to rant about it.

@amandalsmiley:  The problem with the whole post is your tone.  It doesn’t sound like you hate the theme it sounds like you are calling these brides stupid and tacky (I know you did not use those words) for choosing a theme they love. The comment about bringing the “class back” is completely uncalled for!

No need to say you hate the theme.  You could easily say it’s not your taste and move on.  No need to insult women that have put a lot of time, money, and effort into their weddings. Also, I find your comments a tad hypocritical. You admitted your wedding is traditional which means it probably has very little that is original as well.  

You think vintage weddings are in poor taste.  I think your comments are in poor taste.  Just telling you the honest truth.

@Jacqui90:  I just flagged it, too.


OP. we’re not really having a “theme” either, nor are we having a formal wedding because traditional we ain’t, but some of our vintage pieces may be featured at our wedding. Because, y’know, that’s how we actually decorate our HOUSE, with eclectic thrift store and antique finds. Sorry if that offends your sensibilities.

This site is really supportive of ALL brides no matter what their theme. I understand that you, @amandalsmiley, may not be a big fan of vintage-inspired weddings. But, there are plenty of brides here that do. Bashing their personal style is not what Weddingbee is about.

Like PPs have said, to each their own.

I definitely think you should be careful how you word future posts. Arguments and confrontations don’t really happen on the Weddingbee boards.

I think original poster is probably in the wedding industry, from what I gather the industry is not to happy with the loss of revenue the vintage chic trend has caused!

“but these vintage weddings are just so cheaply crafted.”

As an academic, this is where my mind screams EVIDENCE?!? I don’t think my wedding was vintage, but I dont think anyone can say vintage weddings are cheaply crafted. Vintage is not cheap.

@Bricon She isn’t in the industry. I couldn’t help but google when I read your post. ๐Ÿ™‚

OP, as a fellow Jersey girl, be careful about using the word “classy.” Classy in NJ isn’t always classy elsewhere. ๐Ÿ™‚ We tend to go big in Jersey and sometimes that can wind up looking overdone and frantic. We’re from an interesting place!
