The blogs all do have one “theme”

I get soooo annoyed when everyone asks what my “theme” is! Whatever happened to the theme being “beautiful wedding?”

I liked that article. What makes a wedding to me isn’t the decorations or flowers or any of the other little things that everyone finds so important~it’s the people! The love and happiness is what matters to me the most, and if a photographer or guest manages to capture THOSE moments, he/she is worth their weight in gold.

Some good points.

One of the reasons why I enjoy the recap posts here. They are normal weddings. Some amazing some average some not so amazing, but they are all real and have an assortment of the brides favorite pictures from her day. And what’s more important than in wedding photography than the great memories the photographs inspire for the couple? Nothing!

I used a few ideas from wedding blogs, but I would have gone crazy (not to mention blown my budget) if I’d tried to recreate some of the crazy stuff they have on those things.

@poptarts11: They are referring to a VFW hall; VFW stands for Veterans of Foreign Wars. Oftentimes, they have a hall (event space) in a community, somewhat similar to a fellowship hall in a church, as a place for those veterans to gather. They are usually big beige rooms with little to no decor… some would say it’s like having a reception in high school gym (without the basketball nets, of course) (some church fellowship halls function as a gym/playspace for kids too).

It is a very inexpensive location to use.

Wow. this is a fantastic article. We really need to get back to what weddings were about before the internet took over.

Our wedding is rustic/vintage/chic….but so it my bedroom, bathroom, parents house, clothing style…it’s us.  I have been to plenty of weddings that had the typical centerpieces and matching bridesmaids dresses…and red roses.  As much as the “rustic/vintage/chic” style isn’t “you”  keep in mind the mirror centerpieces and white dress and red roses isn’t “us”  I agree that the same kind of style is all over every single wedding blog, and agree that there needs to be different styles showcased.  And for the people who feel they have to have a “blog-worthy” wedding need to reevaluate their intentions.  The wedding is just a day, sounds like they need to shift their focus to celebrating their marriage. If people don’t like your weeding or think it’s not as pretty as everything online they were never your friends to begin with.  Be YOU, no apologies.

@Junkgypsy: I don’t think this letter was insulting vintage weddings at all – just the blogs that over-feature them and the photographers who overdo the vintage edit (because it’s true, those photos are going to be super super dated in a few years and they also don’t look very good printed). Just go scroll through the first few posts on style me pretty today and I think you’ll see what this letter is after. It’s certainly not the vintage brides, just the peddlers of vintage for the sake of advertising and blog hits.http://www.stylemepretty.com/

A lot of the SMP photos shown today aren’t even in focus. I mean REALLY.

@dynamic_duo: She was a pretty good $700 wasn’t she? But yeah, I will admit that the ice cream was the shit.
