Noooooo.  I’m not a trendy girl.  I describe my style as feminine classic and our wedding is a reflection of that!

Not at all. Our wedding will be very classic. Lots of flowers in neutral colors, ballroom, chandeliers, heavy drapes, etc. That just happens to be the style that Fiance and I love.

I’m not even doing colored shoes! lol

(I dont consider strapless dresses a trend personally).

Yes, most of the things I’ve been drawn to are things I’d consider fairly ‘trendy’ – I love all of the colorful and fun things you see at weddings now!

It wasn’t supposed tobe but I have a strapless dress. damask, cant fit a photo booth in the budget but are thinking of doing a surf board with a ocean wave backdrop with the golden gate bridge in the background for people to take pics on, and we are gonna have manzanita branches with our centerpieces with seem trendy to me.

My wedding was offbeat and non traditional but not trendy IMO.  I think the only thing that could really be called trendy was that the flowers were all fabric and hand made.  Oh and I had a fascinator but even that was a little odd.

where were you reading this? I’m curious to see what is considered trendy. Now I’m wondering if mine was!!

My dress is strapless which is the only trendy thing I think I’m doing at all but my dress is unlike anything I’ve seen anywhere else (even on the bee) so I guess I’m really not having a trendy wedding.

Oops I forgot about my candy bar BUT were using antique mix match crystal dishes and a very strange variety of candy. o.O

We’ve got a few things…cupcakes and photo booth. When I first started reading blogs I got all caught up in the vintage feel that every site was showcasing. But I quickly realized that it was SO not us as a couple, even though all those weddings are so freaking beautiful. But I never really cared about cake and Fiance loves cupcakes, and photo booths are just plain fun.

I definitely have some trendy elements, but “trendy” can sound negative and I think a few of what might still be newish/trendy now will really stick around – most notably the short bridesmaids dresses.  I feel like a lot of us slowly started realizing it isnt so awesome to spend 200 bucks on a dress you’ll never wear again.  We all say we’re going to get them shortened – but how often does that happen??  Especially with the economy being how it is, I think very wear-again-able bridesmaids dresses will not just be a trend.

Colors definitely come and go – I thought when I chose navy it was a little different, but since being on here, I’ve noticed it a lot lately.

I’m trying to keep my wedding eco friendly too – and if thats trendy, Im fine with that, in fact, I wish it was trendier!!   This just means I’m only using reused vases (Ive been collecting antique bottles and jars since the summer) and using local, farm grown flowers. We’ve also included an option on our website to “green their invitation”, which means they’ll get a paperless post invite instead of a mailed one if they choose.

I’m also doing cupcakes for budget reasons – one of my BM’s makes them for a living and is doing them for us as her gift.
