BURLAP. Nothing worse than a beautiful lady in a gorgeous dress with ugly ass burlap surrounding her.

@ValerieBee03:  If you don’t mind where people sit, why do you have to have a sign to declare that?

I don’t get it. The ushers will tell them that, if you have ushers. If no ushers, they will choose their seats. If some “choose” to sit on the bride’s side because thye are your realtive then they’ve madea choice as you wanted, what’s wrong with that? I mean, there are only 2 hoices to make.

It all seems like a big deal to me and I’ve not paid attention to the “bride sides/groom side” seating ritual, anyway.

Oh god, burlap. I pray for this trend to end and I am not a believer in the Higher One.

Yeah, choose a seat not a side sign might seem overdone but in my case it’s practical. FI’s family is Christian and mine is Jewish… so if guests follow their customs, they’ll all sit on the right side and no one on the left. And that would just be weird.

Hahaha I knew I would regret reading this thread!

I’m doing the (classy) rustic thing – lace and burlap and twine, log vase centerpieces, etc. Wooden handmade signs. Here’s the deal, though: I’m from small town Idaho, I’m a competitive rifle shooting champion, we are getting married at a ranch/lodge on 260 forested acres. It’s gonna work for us. I only don’t like the rustic thing when it’s a New York City wedding and the bride is wearing cowboy boots for the very first and last time in her life, and she makes the groom wear a cowboy hat and it looks like a damn costume party.

I don’t like most of the things listed (signs, excessive poetry, mason jars) when they are poorly executed and done just because they are trendy. However, I like the look aesthetically, it’s congruent with our lifestyle in a small town of less than 800 people, and it has amazing potential for DIY projects and customizations and personal touches.

Off my soapbox. Anyway, the things I don’t like that are overdone: the fight box, city brides doing “country” because it’s cuuuuuuute, mismatched bridesmaid dresses (cute on Pinterest, rarely executed well in real life), pink taffeta under the gown, painted shoes, the “finally” thing for the save the date sessions. And usually I just dislike these because they are hard to pull off IRL.

@jessiemaims: “Very true. When it’s about using what you have and being less wasteful, in my mind that captures the ESSENCE of burlap, mason jars, etc.  It does bug me when people say “Ooooh I have to recreate that” and go out and BUY burlap, mason jars, mismatched china, etc, only because of my political/philosophical ideas.  To buy something to have the appearance of “rustic” to me is consumerism.”

I’ve only just started dealing with my consumerism/being less wasteful. I NEVER thought of it like that. What a unique take on those trends. You’re so right.
