My dress has cap sleeves, and while I wouldn’t say they’re trendy yet, I think that they’re going to become trendy. My ring is a 1940s vintage ring from etsy, and those have definitely become more popular lately. My flowers will have that gardeny feel that’s pretty popular. My hair will be half up and curled. 

I used to worry about having a wedding that would look dated, but then I realized–this is a wedding to be experienced during one day, in the present. Who cares how it looks 20 years from now? I just want to look beautiful and have fun on the actual day.

Yes, I love this thread more!!

I am one giant Trendy McTrendorson:

– Mason jars galore

– Burlap table runners and burlap wrapped coffee cans

– A Barn!

– Bistro lights everywhere

– My dress is all ivory lace and has a low back

– I am going to be so understatedly fancy in my FLORAL CROWN

– Bright coral shoes

– Lawn games played by all my hipster friends

– Antiquey things all over the freakin’ place

– Bunting. Uh huh.

– Drink dispensers on a dresser. Check.

– Succulents and wildflower bouquet. Yup.

– Where are the bathrooms? Why don’t you check the CHALKBOARD signs I’m gonna have up every 10 feet.

I love that when I look back at my wedding pictures, we’ll be able to reflect on exactly when it was and revel in the nostalgia!

Proud owner of a beautiful halo engagement ring and strapless wedding dress!

It doesn’t matter if something is “trendy” – every wedding is unique because of the way the bride and groom interpret those trends and make them their own in order to express their personalities.

I posted in the other thread but meant no harm by it and like I said, I like most of the items I mentioned. It’s not negative to say that something is trendy, it’s just the truth. I love seeing old wedding photos and seeing the trends of that era and like others have said its nearly impossible to avoid your wedding looking dated but I do think certain items will be more prominent than others.

stephncollins:  love it!  I’m from the country (the least populated state in the country – Wyoming!) and things like wildflowers, barns, cowboy boots, and mason jars are a regular part of my life and very much in line with my personal aesthetic.  So we had a rustic wedding and god damn was it fun!  I spent a little while in my early planning worrying about how my personal style was suddenly all the rage – but then I decided, eff it, I’m just doing what I want and who cares if it’s trendy or not – it’s US!  So bring on the floral crown and cupcake stand and everything ๐Ÿ™‚BPS_9551DSC_2634

Love all the pics, ladies! I had a crummy day, so here are some of my inspiration pics- this might cheer me up ๐Ÿ™‚ 

(My actual trendy venue)

(Our real invites that came in the mail! Kraft paper and as someone so eloquently put it in the other thread, a “rustic invitation suite-what a waste of money!”)

(My actual veil, OMGGGGG)

Bridey77:  Thanks! I never thought I would want a veil, let alone one that stupidly expensive, but I was in love and had to have it ๐Ÿ™‚

Yay I’m glad for this positivity! I was feeling WAY down after reading some of the other trendy posts so much so that I had a to call a few of my bridesmaids to make sure I wasn’t making poor decisions!

I’m wearing a mermaid style lace gown with a beaded belt. My bridesmaids will be in mismatched dress styles and the groomsmen will be wearing a different colored suit than the groom. Not sure what else is considered trendy any more but I also have a halo e-ring that I ADORE and our bouquets will be more wildflowery.
