@iheartsquishy:  I concur. That’s half the fun of going back and looking at old wedding photos!

@iheartsquishy:  I hate to break it to you, but that would be 30 years not 20.

1982 was thirty years ago.  You’re even older and more dated than you thought!  Must be that old age affecting your brain.  πŸ˜›

I thought the same thing; that was 30 years!  I know how it goes though, it seems like it should only be 20 πŸ™‚

So many people are stuck on ~~~timeless and classic elegance~~~ but really, it’s all going to look the same in 30 years, so why not have fun with it?

@iheartsquishy:  I was born in 81 too!!  Don’t feel bad, I still think the 90’s were 10 years ago…and then I do the math and say ‘Oh GAWD’ hahaha!!

I agree on the ‘dating your wedding’ thing…I literally JUST made a comment about that on another thread!!  It’s a day to remember, who cares if you’re ‘trendy’???  My friend got married in the 80’s and LOVES to laugh at how she was trendy and wore a hat and white bridal boots…LOL.

@iheartsquishy:  Agree 100%

Lol, as a first time Bride from the early 80s, I can say that your comments are “right on the money”… what does it matter ?

In reality, when as a Bride you look at your pictures 10, 20 or 30+ years from now, it won’t feel “dated” at all… it will be cherished memories and a time that has slipped by away so fast (in someways it’ll feel “just like yesterday”… in others it’ll make you realize that being a Parent represents the fastest 20 Years of your life)

When it comes to the actual Wedding I agree… couples should have the Wedding they want… the combo of new and old traditions are just fine IMO (infact I find it fascinating how much Wedding Traditions stay on track thru time… probably because they form such a strong bond with GOOD family memories, admiration of other’s life long marriages, GOOD LUCK symbols etc)

But even those can look different…

Example… when I married the first time most Wedding Cakes were fruitcake and usually 3 tiers decorated in Royal Icing.  Today most Wedding Cakes are non-fruitcake and although tiers are still popular, so are a wider variety of shapes and decorating styles.  In the long run tho the basis of the tradition stays the same…
