@JessicaBee12: Yay for vag gowns! ;p 

This thread is very amusing. 

We’re having a photo booth, I’m wearing a ‘vag’ gown as well as sparkly shoes, but I can’t think of anything else super trendy that we’re doing. We’re doing passed sweets and possibly a late night snack.

I love the vintage-ish weddings on Style Me Pretty but a little variety is always nice. 🙂

@techie: HAHA! Love that you joined in. Btw: What are passed sweets? 

We may do a photo booth. Maybe some furniture- couches indoor/outdoor, monogram, late-night food. Ah so what for it being trendy – it’s a snapshot in time. Have fun with it ladies!

@JessicaBee12: Instead of a dessert table, our servers will go around offering mini milkshakes, pie pops, tarts, chocolate truffles, etc. 🙂 It’s less expensive and encourages everyone to mingle after the cake cutting.

We might be doing lounge furniture too!

@techie: great idea! especially since a lot of the cake just sits at the empty tables while everyone is dancing.

No one has mentioned cake pops. love those things!

@CanadianBride2011: but one thing that annoys me is the obsession with being unique and doing something that no other bride has done because “all-weddings-are-overdone-and-annoying-and-my-wedding-will-buck-all-annoying-traditions-and-be-so-uber-unique-and-amazing!”

THIS! I got caught up in this for a hot second when I first started on wedding blogs, but thank goodness I came to my senses quickly. The very act of a wedding ceremony is one of the worlds MOST overdone and traditional things. And if you add a white dress to mix, even more so. I’ve since laid to rest my so called “unique” ideas and have gotten more comfortable with my wedding being pretty ‘traditional’.

@techie: Mini milk shakes… I think I just died and went to heaven. LOL. Love that.

As for the ‘trends’ I’m definitely doing a photo booth if my finances allow for it and candy bar for sure cause I’m a sweet freak. I’m over the choreographed dance too.

@bklynbridetobe: I know what you mean! I gave up trying to be “original” because nothing’s wrong with tradition. We’re embracing it more now but adding our own personal touches. 🙂
