    I don’t know. I think the arragements will look dated more than the flowers. Like those cascade bouquets like Princess Di had. Those are 80’s, but the flowers she used could be used today in some other type of arrangement.

    I think the brooch bouquets are so cool, but will probably look dated.

    All of the above. That doesn’t mean they aren’t beautiful, though :-).

    Everything looks dated after a while. Even classic stuff is dated – it looks like 40s/50s stuff!

    despite a lot of wedding things getting dated – to me – that’s whats special about weddings.  You can cringe in 20 years when you look back at photos compared to the styles of the day but in the end be proud of what was in fashion on your big day!

    Most anything will look dated after a while. Even Grace Kelly’s dress, you can tell it’s from the 50’s. Bissett-Kennedy, you can tell it’s from the 90’s. They are both classic, but can be dated….’dated’ as in you can tell the approximate date it was not ‘dated’ as in, a bad thing.

    There are a lot of things that can date your flowers, like how back in the 80s/90s they used these:

    Nowadays we use ribbon to tie our bouquets together, which I love, but that may someday become dated, as well.

    There are a lot of things we do which can date our weddings, but if we spent the whole time trying to prevent “dating” our weddings, we would all end up with the same-looking wedding, and that would be pretty boring, wouldn’t it? As much as I don’t want to look back and think, “ew, what was I thinking!?” I’m sure it is going to happen somewhere. I DO think that flowers are a little more timeless than other aspects of the wedding, though, and will take longer to look dated.

    I think that having bouquets in the perfect round shape (like a ball) will probably date. However, I don’t care, and my bridesmaids are having round bouquets of ivory roses because I like them. I don’t mind if in 20 years my photos look dated – they will be 20 years old!

    I think everything you’ve listed will look dated. It’s just the nature of things.

    I think it will just be a revolving door, in style/out of style.  It’s kinda like home decor.. dark floors are in, light floors are in.  As long as you do something you love, that is all that will matter.

    It’s one thing for things to looked dated–grace kelly looks dated, but beautiful. And another thing for things to look dated *and* a bad idea–hello 80’s poofy sleeves or shoulders that go up to your ears.

    I think everything will look dated eventually. It’s just how things work.

    unfortunately its not just the flowers that will look dated on the wedding photos.  the dress,  the hairstyles,  the shoes.  And even guests in non-bridal clothes will also look dated.  i think thats all the fun of looking back on your photographs and having a good laugh at the fashion. 

    I am already wearing a 1950s  style dress, but its  because i WANT it to look dated.  LOL

    I know this is an old thread, but I just came across it.  There are a lot of things that will date a wedding, the gown, the flowers, the colors, the theme, etc.  

    I think that flowers are the one element that dates a wedding the least. I say this, because they are a natural element. Even though arrangement styles may change, once a floral arrangement has been created, there will always be florists that will use them, because flowers are beautiful no matter how they are arranged. An arrangement style may go out for a while, but then a florist will “re-discover” it and then it will all the sudden be “in” again.

    @KoiKove:  Poofy sleeves from the ’80s were a modern take on the poofy sleeves of the Victorian era.  The ’80s were obsessed with everything Victorian–everything was Victorian-this and Victorian-that.  So it is very possible that thos poofy sleeves may come back in sometime, since fashion styles seem to come and go in different versions.
