    I’m sooo with you!!!I am a fashion designer for my own clothing company so the dress is THAT much more important to me!!! I have couture taste but unfortunately NOt a couture wallet. I thikn the lighting is a very big part of a fashionable wedding as well as the centerpieces and litle details in the room! It all depends on what you like though… I could tell you feathers, crystals and peonies and you may not like those items… its a matter of your own taste.

    fashion fwd means fashion. so wedding decor doesn’t help that image, neither does food. if you want a fashion fwd and MODERN wedding then we’re talking.

    modern is all the things you list. whereas fashion fwd simply means what one wears (aka dress)

    When I think fashion I think clothing first.  Your dress and the bridal party’s clothing doesn’t have to be designer but I would think it would be in vogue, cutting edge, etc.  I’d think decor second.  Most of all I’d say be fashionably unique (but not weird).  Don’t wear what most other brides are wearing.  Take everything a step or two farther.

    Table linens too! Have fun with those and the napkins. Fabric is fashion.

    It might help if you share your favorite designer… Then we can give a bit more insight.

    Like PPs said, fashion forward makes me think modern. Maybe a trendy, unique color palette. A couture gown would set the tone.

    there are a few wedding trends that are very trendy right now. you just have to pick which is more you and your venue:

    The Rustic Barn Look: string lighting, mason jars, lemonade signature drinks, wildflowers

    The vintage/romantic look: lanterns, candles, candles and more candles, pinks, peaches, beige, ivory, peonies,

    Both of these trends can be seen alot at martha stewart weddings and style me pretty

    The Glam look: this is my fav!: uplighting in pinks purples blues ect, crystals bling, ostrich feathers.

    Hope this helps! Keep us posted!

    Personally, I think it’s impossible to have a truly fashion forward wedding as trends are CONSTANTLY changing. A photobooth now is going to be passe by the end of the year. So are cupcakes, the color purple, lace sleeves, mustache cut outs, etc. Nothing against any of that (we’re doing like half of that list), but what you chose today could be something totally different tomorrow. And you dont want to spend every day on blogs reading about what you could do instead… 

    I would concentrate of making something more lasting. Pick colors that are simple and tasteful. Look for strong lines or shapes. Making a bold statement is great, but like I said, if you try to make it fashion forward, you might always be one step behind the game.

     Look through pictures of weddings for the 1920s-today and compare. Find what you love and go for it, especially for your dress. Vintage will always be in (i.e. Claire Pettibone dresses and Dolly Couture).

    @katiee0707:  Your dress will set the tone of the wedding.  Which Monique Lhuillier are you considering?

    @katiee0707:  awesome, I don’t know much about the first one, but Oscar de la Renta to me represents unique twists on very classic pieces… So I would translate this with taking some very classic ideas like an all white wedding or something and add a bold punch of color…

    Just looking at some clothes in the line I see this:

    I think first and foremost your dress should set the tone.  Secondly- your makeup and hair, overall styling.  When I think ‘fashion forward’ I think runway, which means a bit daring with styling and usually minimalist decor.  Pantone’s trend color for 2012 is tangerine and color blocking is super chic.  Don’t be afraid to play with different, unusual silhouettes for your bridesmaids, too.   Good luck!
