    I am just going with what we like. I don’t care about trendy. It is our wedding, so it will be the way we want it.

    I don’t really pay attention to what is trendy or not. I just am doing things that are within our budget and that we like!

    Listen .. I say do what you want. Just like you said – you’re doing a smile booth. And you will have fake mustaches. And that’s fine. Not doing something just because it’s trendy doesn’t make any sense … and doing something just because it’s trendy doesn’t make a ton of sense, either.

    Haha, great question. I hear a drum beat in my head and sometimes that beat may lead me straight into a polaroid photobooth, but never make it to the other trends. As a designer, i tend to just imagine what i want something to feel and look like, and work from there.

    I’m not the biggest fan of trends like the bird cage veil, and I have no idea what bunting is.  So apparently I’m not hip to the trendy stuff anyway.  The one thing I do like is the photo booth, though I’m not doing one.  I think its silly and fun, and while its ‘trendy’ it can still be timeless.  Because you’re going to laugh in 20 years when you look back at those pics!

    Hmm, I’m going to say that in general, I do what I want with my wedding regardless of whether it is trendy or not.  I have to say that applies with all aspects of my life, not just my wedding.

    However, I do have a tendency to dislike things that are very popular (wedding related or not) and I try to differentiate myself by going against the norm.  I’m not sure if it’s because I dislike trends or because I just enjoy not being so run-of-the-mill.  I guess the two probably go hand in hand.

    I love the idea of wearing colored shoes under the wedding gown.  And although I would love a candy buffet as a guest, we may not incorporate it in our wedding.  I won’t include something just because it’s trendy.

    I freaking hate trends.  Not just because they’re “trendy”, but because I usually think they’re silly and gimmicky.

    I am not making any choices based on whether or not something is trendy. However, many of the wedding trends right now have a whimsical vintage, almost childlike,  look to them-that is completely not my style, so I am not doing those sorts of trends.  Some trends I like and will use or consider using. I like a candy buffet, because I like candy-but I decided to make cookies as a favor since I am a pastry chef and it is more personal. I love colored shoes but only found pairs I like  in satin. Since my wedding is outdoors I decided to go with a more durable metallic leather. I am doing orchids on manzanita branches for centerpieces. I didn’t know it was trendy, but I guess it is. I still love the look.


    My wedding is not traditional, but not trendy. I would say it is unique.

    I voted for doing whatever you want regardless of how trendy it is.

    We did a candy buffet at our wedding, but only because we both love candy (like seriously, people know that about us), so it was very fitting.

    I’m on the bandwagon of including what I like regardless of it is trendy or not. If it is – cool since I’m never on the trendy side of things. If not, don’t care – it’s me!

    I’m just trying to go with my gut and do what *I* like.  I know I’m going to look back on pictures in 20 years and laugh at some things NO MATTER WHAT, so I might as well just pick things that I really like the day of the wedding.

    I have no idea what bunting is either could someone explain?  I am not doing too much trendy stuff in my wedding just because I either didnt care for the idea for whatever reason (outside of trendy) or because it didnt work out – like I wanted colored shoes but couldnt find any I liked so oh well went with Ivory kinda thing.  I think as long as your happy with your wedding, thats what matters 🙂  No matter what in 20 years I think most weddings today will look dated even the most traditional/non-trendy ones, there is no avoiding it really.
