haha! I love blush, rose gold, and mason jars. But then again, I have loved these things from before they were on trend, and my Darling Husband joked that I was too 80s with our blish colour bedroom drapes.
Do what you love and who cares if your guests like it or not.

Good lord. And then we wonder why people get so stressed out when planning weddings. It’s a frickin’ wedding, not a damn work of art. It does not have to be unique, flawlessly executed, or fashionable. I have never been to a wedding where I even noticed the theme, tbh.

The only one that annoys me is the “best day ever” theme. Like I get that it’s exciting for you guys, but it’s probably not THE day for all of your guests. Also, I always like to hope that my best day is yet to come, otherwise it’s all downhill from here! 🙂
I do agree that the rustic/burlap things is getting to be a tad trite. Living in Wisconsin, I see it all the time. Our wedding is in an old tobacco warehouse, and I was adamant that it would NOT be a rustic theme. So maybe it’s “industrial chic” or whatever, but really I’m just trying to have a pretty and elegant wedding in a pretty venue that was available on our date and priced reasonably haha. There was no intentional theming.

selinameh: +1 I really can’t think of any theme I’m bored of. There’s ones I wouldn’t do for my own wedding (no lace or burlap, although we are using mason jars because Fiance wants to) but there’s no theme I’ve seen at every wedding I’ve been to. Most of them I don’t even really notice a theme at all.

We are using mason jars, no burlap and the only lace will be on my veil 😉
I’m tired of the “wedding price tag” theme. Meaning anything that has wedding in front of it is 1000x more expensive 😛

I’ll chime in here with everyone and say that I’m done with burlap as well.
However, unlike some of you lovely ladies, I’m tired of seeing high saturation color palettes.
My personal taste is such that I like muted, soft, romantic shades. All of these bright colors (with the exception of some summer wedding colors) give me literal headache. It’s too much — especially when you use the colors everywhere! Use a bright color as an accent — sure! Use it as your main color — never. . . But maybe I’m just saying this because I happen to be one of those people who are prone to migraines… Who knows! Personal preference.
— I used to be a bridal consultant and you’d be surprised how many brides come in wanting a high-saturation, crayon-colored, rainbow wedding.
P.S. My Bridesmaid or Best Man colors are pale peachy blush (Angel), pale dusky grey blue (Mystic), lilac taupe (Portobello), and taupe (biscotti). My wedding colors are dusky blues, ivy greens, blushes, and ivory/cream/gold.

Everything you all have mentioned is so pretty though!!!! Idk I love weddings so I can’t hate haha.
The one thing I’m sick of……. Pink bridesmaid dresses. Not any pink, but baby pink. I go to 12+ weddings a year (I married into a family the size of Texas). All the bridesmaids are wearing the same dress and in baby pink!!!!! Why!!!!!!!
All these girls go to each other’s weddings too. Don’t they notice a pattern??? Lol

I’m going to go against the grain here since most people have already brought up the rustic theme (I had no issues with burlap or mason jars until I started planning my wedding, and that stuff was EVERYWHERE!).
But what I hate more than that is the weddings with all of the drapery and purple glowing lights like this: http://marrymeweddingrentals.com/site/1423851440led-purple_large.jpeg
I think they’re soooo outdated looking. Unfortunately every single wedding I’ve EVER been to looked this way.

OK, I’m going to go ahead and close this thread since it appears to be started solely to criticize others’ wedding choices.
