I saw a lot of navy and gold with clean, classic lines and white flower bouquets at the wedding show I went to.

teatreaforme:  I can’t find any reference images for that particular room (this is the place, right?: http://www.crystalballhouston.com/weddings), but lighting such as candles, linens, and beautiful floral decor can do wonders for the feel of a drab room.

I was just messing around with some candles, Valentine’s flowers, a cookie stand, and pillow covers last week before my “Downton Abbey” Season 6 party (yeah, I know…), and was amazed how fast the living room looked more warm and inviting.

topeonyornottopeony:  I think small intimate weddings are making a come back. I see Gold and Glam which was honestly my initial plan for our wedding. However when I feel in love with our venue (very rustic) I kept thinking how I could make it intimate and romantic and then I only wanted to celebrate with those that truly make us happy, laugh, smile and dance. 

So fingers crossed that small weddings are making a come back

teatreaforme:  Where I am in the wedding world you can’t swing a cat by its tail without hitting mason jars, burlap, twine, and blackboards with cutesy sayings on them.  

I’d like to see Art Deco make a comeback on the wedding scene but even then, anything in excess can get old quick.

What I’d really like is for people to stop adding the word “chic” to everything wedding-related.  Shabby chic?  Rustic chic?  Oxymoron chic?

Lavender28:  I hope so! I got a satin dress so I would be on trend!

I am so over the rustic theme! I am doing a more glamarous and romantic theme! 🙂

In Los Angeles (and Australia, that’s where I got a lot of inspo) is bohemian style. Free flowing, nature oriented while still being elegant and classy. :] I love it!

Something FH said to me about wedding trends really struck me: if you don’t go to weddings that often, or you don’t have a lot of weddings pop up on your social media feeds, you don’t know what the “trends” are, or what’s been “overdone.” For example, the few weddings he’s attended in the past 10 years have mostly been very glamorous, expensive urban/suburban affairs. When he saw photos of a friend’s rustic wedding last fall, he thought it was the greatest thing ever! 

This stuff is all relative–there’s someone out there who thinks a Great Gatsby wedding is the most original thing ever, or can’t wait to put mustaches on their Save-the-Dates. Sometimes it’s easy to get into a wedding planning bubble!
