    I don’t care if my wedding is seen as trendy, tacky, timeless or other. As long as I love it and my guests have a good time it doesn’t matter.

    I haven’t really thought about it as I planned. I think I will have a little of both. The trendy dress styles look terrible on me, so my dress is more traditional. But I also have trendy elements-cupcakes, mismatched bridesmaids, etc. Oh well…my fiance and I are happy so that’s all that matters 🙂

    I was definitely striving for timeless, because I married SO long after almost all of my friends (most of whom married from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s, and many of the wedding hairstyles, gowns, headpieces, and tuxedos now look pretty dated to me.)  I wanted to go with a very formal, traditional style that would be less likely to change over time.

    We didn’t care, we went with what we liked and had an amazing day. I had better things to worry about than what kind of longevity our wedding style would have. Besides, I figured no matter what we did, our future children would still look at our wedding photos and think how ancient everything looks.

    You know, I honestly didn’t even think about that the whole time I was planning my wedding. I chose the things I liked that aligned with our classy & elegant vibe, but it wasn’t a matter of trendy or timeless.

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with trendy dresses – to each their own. I voted for being timeless, but that’s only because I love vintage looks and my dress is 30s inspired. So in theory, it’s not new and trendy, but I can’t exactly say it’s timeless, either.

    Perhaps I should have voted “other”…

    Who decides whats trendy whats timeless? I am doing what makes me feel good right now.  I don’t care what people think of my wedding 30 yrs from now. My only concern in 30yrs is still being happily married whether you dress is timless or trendy it really has no bearing on that.

    Meh, I just bought what I liked.  Who knows if anyone else will like it today or 20 years from now.

    I honestly think all weddings no matter how “timeless” they are will look dated in 30 years time. Hairstyles, makeup, clothing, venue, and decor all change so much over time. Even looking at the most “classic” dresses in retrospect you can tell they are “dated”

    A great example of this is Kate &  Prince William’s wedding when compared with Grace Kelly and the Prince of Morocco. Even though both would be considered timeless dresses…. they both will look dated, when looking back at them…

    I am aiming for timeless 🙂 But then again, there will always be things that look dated in the future.

    I’m aiming for classic and elegant so I guess that’s close to timeless
