In my circle of friends and family I have never, ever seen a vintage/rustic wedding.  I’ve also never seen a photobooth.

Being on WB and Pinterest are going to give you an overload of that theme because it’s what is popular right now.  I think the better question would be to ask how many people actually implement those ideas into their wedding IRL.

There are tons of wedding things that I’m so over because I’ve seen TONS of pictures on here, but honestly, I should be saying, “Ugh, matching bridesmaid dresses, church ceremonies, hall rentals, and simple decor are SO overplayed!”  Haha  I WISH I could attend a wedding held in a barn with vintage decor!

My wedding was rustic and I have to admit…I was a little sick of the trend by the end of planning.

Brides have been overloaded with rustic/vintage stuff for a couple years now, but if you aren’t getting married, you probably have no idea that its trendy! Our guests kept telling us how unique it was.

I’m doing nature-y semi-rustic but more clean than legit rustic… and I am so, so afraid that when it comes time to my wedding I’m going to freaking hate it because I’m so tired of it!  I’m trying to keep it as nature-y as possible to avoid that because, come on, how can anyone “hate” moss, rocks, and ferns?

We started off as rustic/vintage/tons of DIY and at the end, we settled for classic romantic with a few vintage/unexpected twists. Some of our friends and I were talking about what we dubbed the “Pinterest wedding” where the bride clearly took on every project from Pinterest and bought out half of Etsy and yet it’s not her personality. The very very DIY vintage theme just doesn’t work with my usual personality and it didn’t work with elements that actually were very ME like my dress and shoes. I’m not opposed to the vintage for people who actually are thrift shop shoppers and hang out in barns, but we aren’t that type of people.

Haha! I agree with the first poster — we see it all the time on Pinterest and wedding websites, but in real life, it’s still not a very popular trend. The most popular wedding type by far is still fancy, modern, and in a banquet hall. I’m not sick of the rustic trend yet, but I am totally sick of wedding planning!

We did some vintage elements, but none of the rustic. Our look was more retro cocktail party (think Mad Men/Rat Pack/etc). I still like the vintage chic look when it isn’t heavy handed, but I agree that the trend will probably pass soon. 

Wonder what will be next?

@penguinof3:  I know. I remember seeing a bride with peacock earrings on OBB like, 4 years ago….I so wanted to do that. But then the trend came along and it somehow no longer fit with what we were doing…

Didn’t we just do this thread a week ago?

Do a search for mod or modern wedding. You’ll find plenty of inspirational pictures.

Pinterest is definitely overloaded with the vintage/rustic vibe, but I have really not seen it done very often (at least from anyone I have come in contact with). My venue is an old Victorian Mansion/ Bed and Breakfast. The ceremony is in the garden and the  reception in an old bard with chandeliers and fabric drapings. I think the reason we see it so much on Pinterest is because there are about 5 or 6 AWESOME rustic weddings and everyone pins them. I know a lot of people who pin them, but have had a wedding, or are not planning a rustic/vintage wedding at all. They just thought they were pretty pins. 

I always thought I’d want the traditional ballroom wedding, but I really think that although people have “ideas” and “pins” of rustic/vintage weddings, it’s not done as much as it seems.

Ya but it’s hard to be truly original since we are so incredibly susceptible to marketing and we don’t even realize it. I don’t knock brides that go with a more ‘supported’ theme.

@Mrs. Mink:  Yeah, but that thread was more “Oh my god I hate these ugly weddings all those brides are poopy heads that want them!!”

whereas this thread is “I used to love rustic/vintage but I feel like its overplayed. thoughts?”

We should direct the other poster to this thread to show how it can go when we play nice. ๐Ÿ™‚
