@Aquaria: You go with the flow. Adapt or become obsolete if you are a vendor. If you had things that were trendy but now look dated and cliche, who cares? Were you happy? Did you love everything as it happened? Then embrace it and have a good laugh in 20 years at how dated everything looks. Hopefully you (the generic you) made these decisions because you liked them, not because you were told to by society, so you’ll still love every kitschy passe detail!

I’ve found the answer! They’re making them into Halloween decorations and calling them “primitive” instead of “rustic”. The banners that used to say Mr. & Mrs. now say Happy Halloween. Mason jars are painted black and orange.

Not sure why everyone is concerned about trends. do what you like. In 30 years your wedding is going to look dated. I dont care what you do. I collect old photos n I can tell if a couple was married in the 20,30 Or 40s.

I know a way round this, don’t have a theme at all.

I agree! I will be married in 2014, I want it to look like I was married in 2014. It was obviously a special year to me!

But its not just the theme that will age you. The style of your dress, the colors you use the way your hair is and your photographs. Lets face it. We can all tell when a bride from the 70s got married because of all the things mentioned above. The same will happen with brides in 2013 or 14. There is no way to get around it.
Unless you style your wedding after another decade I dont see how your wedding can go unaged.

@Aquaria: We get to look back at our wedding pictures & realize how silly we really looked & how oblivious we were to it lol.
Same thing that’s been happening for generations 🙂

I’m the matron of honor in my friends wedding next August and I’ve been “gently persuading” her to not use mason jars. I loved them as much as the next bride, but they’ve had their moment and it’s time to move on. Although, I’m still in love with the use of shabby furiture and anything involving old doors! lol! I had both in my wedding this year.
I see trends leaning back twords more traditional luxury. I’d like to see more good old fashion Delta style weddings with at home receptions. Think Father of the Bride meets Steel Magnolias!

I was actually thinking of a home reception, but due mostly to the lack of funds.
