rothy: I love this! Thanks for sharing.

 

As for my thoughts on the topic, I have to agree with the extreme mermaid but I also think certain lace dresses will date faster than others.

You think?

The fact that Art Deco/Art Nouveau has been crazy popular – not just in fashion but in other fields – for nearly 100 years on and off, says to me it isn’t going anywhere.

I suppose I can see a trend away from delicate styles and the intricate beading that the “Art Deco” styles tend to have, towards more minimalist styles or towards fuller ballgowns, but I think that would only ever be a temporary thing as fashion cycles ebb and flow.

A picture from every decade from 1890 till 1990, in order (can you spot the 80s?!). It seems like the sheath really went strong for a lot of these decades…maybe it’s not as trendy for today as we all think.

This thread is great!!!

I’m in Texas (Dallas) so the whole burlap thing was appealing when I first saw it 2 years ago when I knew my BF was the one. Since then it’s been so over-done. The venue options here are one extreme or the other… Rustic or downtown/modern… with a few generic event places here and there. I went rustic, but am trying to make it more garden-like than the burlap and chalkboard signs everywhere now. 

Photobooths are another trend, but its fun and I’m having one.

Fingerprint guestbooks? Although with so many different guest books these days, the regular sign in book seems so dated instead.

The “naked” cake or cupcakes.

Love those dresses through the ages! 

i think stapless sweerheart all lace modified A-line dresses will look very inidicative of 2008-2012 in the future.

For some reason I think blinged out gowns, the sheath, and the super high heels will all be considered a faux pas in the future. Oh and the designed/sculpted nail designs too.

I don’t know that I’ll laugh at certain wedding trends years from now.

Halo rings have been around and are here to stay.

Mermaid dresses are just another type of silhouette. I don’t think there’s anything inherently funny about a sexier, more fitted style.

Rustic themes aren’t really laughable to me either. They’re more down to earth than a ballroom wedding, obvs.

I think maybe the only trend that will be funny in the future would be the crazy headpieces some brides are wearing.

I really love this thread!

I think, like a lot of PP’s, that the “rustic wedding” with lots of signs will look dated in the future, not in a bad way just in a, “yep that was the ’10s” way. Same thing with the mustaches I see a lot around the interwebs.

This isn’t necessarily a bridal thing, but I think it won’t be long before we’re laughing at one-shoulder dresses. It’s a weird concept (This coming from someone who did one-shoulder dresses for her bridesmaids lol) and not terribly flattering for all body types.

rothy:  Love those pics! My FI’s grandmother told me a couple of weeks ago that she got married in a suit and my mind was blown. They got married in 59 and she said that’s what people did back then. I was amazed lol

Definitely the whole rustic chic thing. This girl I know was planning her wedding. She’s lived in the city her whole life. She’s all about coach purses and nice clothes. And she decided she was going to have a rustic wedding, wanted a barn, and hay, and burlap. I asked her if she had ever even been in a barn before, and she goes “no, why would I have been?” She ended up eloping though. 

 

Aside from that, 

 

The see through dresses. 

 

These giant ruffles.

 

Random doors, windows, and picture frames. I just dont get the point.

I agree twith most of the comments!

I think anything extreme is in danger of being outdated. This includes: extreme trumpet/mermaid dresses, extreme ruffles, extreme beadwork, extreme poofy anything, etc.

 

I also agree that those wedding signs will be outdated =)

Bridey77:  It’s funny at how similar the 50’s and the 90’s dresses were that I posted…but somehow the 50’s one just looks better…must have been the makeup and hair.
