I haven’t seen damask in a wedding, really ever. I think it gets so overplayed online that people are afraid to use it, or maybe my friends are just really hip? The last two weddings in KY that I’ve been to definintely haven’t had even a little.

The last wedding I shot in VA with Damask was early fall 2008. I haven’t seen it since…

I was going to use damask but then decided it had been done too many times around here. I decided to go with a monochromatic red theme with a few black & white accents.

I’ve never been to a wedding that had a damask theme, but I don’t go to tons of weddings. Haven’t seen as much of it around online…I was never a huge fan, though.

DAMASK IS STILL ROARING ACROSS THE COUNTRY. 

I am getting requests for damask from all parts of the country and I am having difficulties trying to keep up with the demand.  Another HOT trend I found for 2010 is ZEBRA print mixed with tiffany and also Zebra with fuchsia is hot, too!

I think Damask is slowly starting to fade… however I think it has opened the doors for other prints to make their way in as a part of a theme.

Call me crazy, but I don’t even know what a damask is! *blush* Can someone explain?

I guess this means it ISN’T popular in my area(s), although maybe I’ve seen one and didn’t know what it is!

@Farmersdaughter – here is damask

I have a friend doing damask and purple for a may wedding this year! So I think it is still around I think it is just fading in online trends!

I am an event designer and several of my brides are going with the damask print (In in Louisiana).  My linen friendor is ALWAYS getting requests for it, but I do think that Louisiana is slightly behind the other trends.

Thank you! I feel silly but I’m glad I know what yall are talking about =)

I’ve never seen it in the weddings I’ve been to in Oregon, Idaho, Indiana, and North Carolina.

My feeling is that damask is too classic and beautiful (plus there are so many variations of it) to ever completely fade out of fashion. What I do think will happen is that the preference for black & white damask will change to softer, subtler color combinations. 

One of our brides recently ordered puzzles designed for black and white damask with an apple green accent. She is from Texas.

I think damask is still popular and agree w/the other bee that it has opened the floodgates for other wedding styles and patterns to arise!  Good for damask!  Sparkin’ bridal creativity everywhere!
