So what wedding trend or idea have you seen but have decided to skip for your wedding and why?
1. Colored shoes – I love colored shoes on everyone and they look awesome for pictures but for some reason I fell in love with ivory shoes and got a killer deal on mine so am sticking with them
2. Dancing – we are having a small (60 ppl) afternoon wedding with a very mixed crowd in age and many small groups that know each other so it just did not seem to fit – so no first dance but we are encore and older 🙂
3. Candy Buffet – ok I really want this but my Fiance has veto’d in favor of the shutterbooth which I also love but want both – but he is right who wants to haul a bag of candy around the Las Vegas Strip

I love the rustic elegant weddings, but we didn’t do one. I love looking at the photos though.

@tksjewelry: I’m with you. Those weddings are beautiful and I love looking at the pictures, but I’ve never imagined my wedding as anything but traditional. I like the formality of it and I like that my parents, his parents, GPs, etc, have done it the same way. Besides, when am I going to ever get dressed like this and prance around a ballroom again?
That being said, I’m totally sick of mason jars being used for EVERYTHING. Sorry, guys!! ahh. But I do adore the recent “rustic” trend of succulents and all sorts of greenery!! ahhh so refreshing. (I’m going to try to incorporate something like that into my flowers, while still keeping it “formal”)

There are tons of traditions I’d love to do if we could afford them 😛 That covers honeymoon, real flower decorations, limo, and gorgeous candle centerpieces.
I really love the tradition of the groom seeing the bride for the first time that day as she walks down the aisle toward him. However, we’re doing a first look, because I think the day will go so much smoother with it and I’m looking forward to having a few minutes with just my Fiance 🙂

I wish I lived somewhere that a cookie buffet was customary.

We’re not having….
candy or cookie buffet
sit down meal
But we will have a late evening outdoor wedding at sunset with a Christmas light covered pavilion, 100 of our closest family and friends, a delicious and simple cake, homebrew beer by my top placing homebrewing fiance, lots of wine, dancing, and I imagine our toasts will be more like roasts… 🙂

I love traditions that “seal the deal”, but kept ours to just the kiss:
Jumping the broom, breaking the glass, and handfasting.

garter pull (i like the idea, but when i picture it realistically, i know i will be SO embarassed to have that much attention on us doing something kinda intimate)

colored shoes, pomanders, those lavender bouquets, photo booth, petals lining the aisle, cupcakes, uplighting, vintage themes, fascinator veils, i could probably keep going.

colored shoes (I was afraid to see how my shoes would take dye)
fascinator/cocktail hat (DH hates them)
broach bouquet (thought it would be too heavy)

Photo booth! This one still pains me, I want one so freaking bad! But I just don’t see it happening with out budget.
Uplighting, I think it can make the room look gorgeous, but we already have nice chandeliers, and it will be daytime for a good chunk of the reception and we have huge windows with a pretty view, so it seems like it would be a waste.
Candy buffet – Fiance hates candy, how weird, right? But it seemed weird to have a favor that one of us hates.

No isle thingy. Or flowergirl. Or ring bearer.
I would give my arm for a photo booth, but way out of our budget.
No mason jars. (I’m not sad about it either).

Photobooths, cupcakes, candy buffets, garter toss, A-line strapless ball gowns from David’s Bridal(too many, all look the same!!), mason jars.
I love all except the DB dresses. I started betting on the dress and wow oh wow I was always right!
