@jessiemaims:  So agree. The misquotes. And misused quotes.

This C.S. Lewis quotes keeps going around on the wedding boards:

“Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story no one on Earth has ever read, which goes on forever; in which every chapter is better than the one before”

Yes, would be perfect for a wedding – if it wasn’t about DYING, entering heaven, and waiting for the damn Resurrection.

I agree that things get over done on Pinterest & in the blogosphere but don’t tend to turn up as much in real life…Although I have been to two weddings in the past few years that I was like, oh, this is a micrososm of all the blog trends.  Let’s be real, it’s fun to see that IRL.

How has no one mentnioned bunting!?!?!  (If you said bunting and I missed it, sorry!)

@Syzygy88:  Love that series!  LOL “damn resurrection”.

Yes, if there were quote police who went around issuing tickets for misquotes I would apply for that job.  It’s a pet peeve of mine.

I’m not a fan of the centerpieces that have a mirror base with fake jewels scattered on them around the centerpiece. I’m also not a fan of those twigs with “jewels” hanging off them. 

 

But that said I’m a fan of mason jars and the whole rustic/shabby chic look which I’m sure lots of people here hate. To each their own.

@wisher558:  ah don’t do that!

I love being on pinterest and although i get tired of seeing some ideas over and over, there is plenty of uniqueness to go around! My wedding will also have mismatched vases, and lots of chalkboards. It’s all about your own personal style! And TBH I haven’t been to too many weddings that have been super original in the first place, and they didn’t have any of these elements.

Forget the haters, ’cause somebody loves ya! (I don’t really like this song, but its stuck in my head right now.) YOU DO YOU!

@QuirkySocialite:  I actually really like pinterest. I’ve learned a lot of cool things through it and get great ideas for parties, home decor, etc. It’s just meant to inspire. However, I think the wedding page is the least “inspired” of the pages. It’s just the same pics over and over.

Pop of color shoe anyone? Doesn’t mean I won’t be doing it mind you. I love my red lace pumps! 🙂

@Dareebs:  I think this looks great..And I know people don’t come on here to “bash” anyone’s style..but if you have nothing nice to say..don’t say it..Just my two cents..Especially because there are tons of brides on here doing these things. Everyone has their own visions for what they want their weddings to be like and I don’t think posting about things you hate is very supportive, even if you don’t like it. We all know that being a bride is extremely stressful, and I had always thought of this forum as a place to come and get encouragement, not come on here and see all the things about your wedding that people think are tacky or overdone.

I personally have never been to a wedding (and I have been to roughtly 15 weddings in the last couple of years) that resembles Pinterest in any way. Most of them had traditional guestbooks, white cakes, matching chiffon bridesmaid dresses, and a purple and silver or brown and orange colour scheme. 

Like many others have mentioned, it’s meant to inspire. Each wedding looks and feels different, regarless of whether or not the use mason jars and burlap. When we had our wedding, people were floored. Even though we had a few things that are floating around on Pinterest, people were none the wiser – and it didn’t stop them from enjoying the barn, dessert bar, and food truck. I also really think it depends on where you live,your  circle of family and friends, and your wedding budget.

That being said, I do agree that its annoying to see the same images pinned over and over!

I think threads designed to negatively discuss aspects of weddings might be a bit misplaced on a board where lots of users are planning or have recently had weddings. Someone is going to feel insulted or upset, especially with the sheer nastiness and superiority coming across in some people’s tones. I’ve only taken one idea from Pinterest and its not something anyone has mentioned here, but even I feel a bit miffed.

the cutesy signs (specifially the choose a seat not a side & here comes the bride), BURLAP, so over burlap.  Mason jars might be a little overdone too but I’m probably going to use them anyways (we’re getting the mugs for our spiked lemonade).

This thread is so interesting! To each her own I suppose 🙂 Even the things I’ve seen a million times on Pinterest can still be beautiful and unique to that couple in the context of their wedding day. 

We had an outdoor wedding and used various signs to keep guests oriented. As I was creating the signs, I realized that I might be overdoing it (with signs that were rather obvious), so as a joke I made this one for the cake table:
