Run with it! Brides tend to foget that 95% of their guests have seen or even heard of these ideas because they don’t frequent the wedding blogs.

@julies1949: Thats so true, to us we think its soo over done. But to our guest its brand new.

I agree with the above, many of these things are trends in online blogs, but a lot of them I have not seen at recent weddings I have been to despite this.  Here are the things I did that you’re doing:

outdoor ceremony, first look, alternative Groomsmen bouts, non identical Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, bundt cakes instead of wedding cake (we did a cake table with many cakes), photobooth, lawn games.  The only one I had seen at a wedding I attended before and since was outdoor ceremony.

I also went to a wedding with chalkboards and mustaches/props for pictures.  It was a MASSIVE hit and no one (except me) had ever seen it before.

Unless you’re inviting exclusively Bees and bloggers, it won’t seem “trendy” to your guests. And I would love to be invited to a wedding with all those things!

When I first got engaged my fiance and I decided to hold the wedding in a family member’s beautiful backyard. We did it for sentimental as well as financial reasons. While browsing through a bridal magazine I saw that it was on a list of trendy ways to have a wedding this year…. ugh. I hate trendy.


But I agree with everyone else, all of the things you listed sound great and will put a unique and personal touch on your wedding. I think most guests get tired of cookie cutter weddings and look forward to new ways to do old traditions.

The majority of your guest don’t stalk the wedding blagoshere. They will simply be blown away by your “creativity.”

You know, my sister married in 1996 and had non-matching bridesmaids dresses.  Perhaps she was ahead of her time, ya never know what trends end up sticking around for a bit.

I totally agree with everyone else. We see these things as common and super trendy because we read wedding blogs and stuff. I think the average person doesn’t really think about this sort of thing.

Having said that, I have been trying to steer away from “trendy” things myself. Its hard though, because there are so many great ideas out there. I AM including a few trendy things, but I just love them too much not to.

We’re doing multiple cakes, outdoor ceremony (and reception), lawn games, and DIY as much as possible. We may also include pompoms, garlands and a cookie buffet.
