    I think damask is REALLY overused personally.  WHen I think of a damask wedding, i think 2007/2008.  That being said – if you love it – go for it.  Its your wedding!

    I’m over the damask, but that’s probably because I’ve spent a decent amount of time here on the Bee.  If I was never involved in wedding planning i would probably feel otherwise.

    I’ve seen plenty on wedding blogs, but none IRL.  I doubt most of your guests hang out on wedding blogs all day either, so they probably won’t even know it’s popular.  🙂

    If you love it, go for it.  Your guests will not know (or care) whether it is overdone, because they aren’t entrenched in the wedding world the way brides and wedding planners are.

    While I think it’s overused, I don’t think that you should not use it if you BOTH love it… and your Fiance isn’t loving it so much anymore. Maybe use less of it than you were originally thinking to compromise?

    I say it’s not overused simply because I haven’t actually ever seen it used at a wedding!

    It sounds like it will go great with your theme, and if it’s what you love, do it! Who cares if it’s unique or not. You’re not winning points in a contest of uniqueness. :b

    I see it online a lot, but I’ve honestly only seen it in person once — at my own wedding! And it was only on our invitations and table numbers. I personally love the print.

    That said — I think your FI’s opinion is more important here than how often you see damask at weddings.

    I do think it’s a little overused.. normally I would say just go with what you love, but if your Fiance isn’t also on board, is there any other print/design that you guys can compromise on?

    I thought it was overdone before we got engaged, so it’s not a “oooh people only say it’s overdone when they look at 1 wedding a week.”  No, it’s just overdone.  It was super trendy 2-3 years ago.

    I think it is overused, but who cares.  If you love it, then use it!

    I think it’s overused as well, HOWEVER, unless you attend like 5-10 weddings a year, no one ELSE will notice.  Us bees are just all over wedding images that we’ve been inundated with damask!

    I don’t think it’s overdone, but I’m sure that’s because I’ve never been to a wedding that used it. Weird, because I’ve been to a TON of weddings over the past few years…maybe it’s more popular in certain parts of the country?

    I think it’s a very popular design but also something pretty classic. As much as I see it online I’ve never seen it done at an actual wedding I’ve attended. I used it on my invites and some of my other little paper details and I think it looks great personally.

    I think it’s used a lot, but like others said, I don’t think your guests will even know. Do what YOU like!
