Steampunk in my opinion.  Mostly because I think it looks really cool and I’ve been seeing more and more of it.

@EffieTrinket:  LOL I completely thought from reading the title that you meant on a scale of elegant to rustic what is a level up or down.

@EffieTrinket:  

 

Maybe actual vintage?

I’m sort of tired of the shabby chic nonsense. Taking beautiful aged things and painting them bright yellow and pink is mostly blasphemous.

Steampunk would be the next logical phase. Though I hope everything just moves more into “self expression” Like the Offbeat Bride

Great Gatsby is my bet.

Everything will take on a very 1920’s prohibition feel. Receptions will look and feel like those old jazz cabaret bars were the silent film starlets sipped whisky sours alongside mafioso types.

Lots of feathers and glass beads as decorations, boudoir room styling, 1920’s hair/make-up/drssses/headpieces, men in real suits (OMG love!), proper old-school cocktails (which even men will drink), lively New Orleans style jazz bands, maybe even the return of marcasite engagement rings (I love marcasite jewellery).

“Steampunk” looks like the very worst of “Hipster Wedding”.

I genuinely hope I never get invited to one of those.

@QueenofCups:  There are some brides on here who are incorporating elements and doing a great job, so hopefully if you get invited to one, it won’t be over-the-top 🙂

@EffieTrinket:  the huffington post had a thing a few weeks back about how over rustic was and a few other things too.

I think vintage (that 60’s mad men looks) is out too.

Perhaps ethereal, french, feminine will return? and traditional pastels?I also think well see more modern “good-bye” tradition and period pieces, hello twentieth century say hello to my sexy legs! (so short dresses and creatively sheik men…perhaps even a revamp of decor?)

It would be nice to see some diy that wasn’t all mason jars and pom poms (not that they can’t be lovely).

@BeachBride2014:  Thank you.

We are having a Steampunk wedding but it is definitely leaning towards the more classical NeoVictorian…nothing hipster about it! We met onstage while acting in the Christmas Carol and the majority of our friends are involved in the theatre so it definitely fits us. We are also total geeks and involved in renfests as well. That is the difference between a ‘hipster’ doing something because it is popular and someone that is truly into Steampunk or anything else like that!

Oh and btw…the rustic barn reception that is so popular right now is what I had at my first wedding 23 years ago…along with a blush dress. It would be funny to see that happen with the next trend. lol
