Ballgowns…but only because I’m super jealous that I couldn’t pull one off. They swallowed me!

oh, and i don’t like ball-like centerpieces. to me this means a candelabra or one main centerpiece with like a huge ball of flowers on top. because if this it is making it very difficult for me to come up or find inspiration photos of something i like because i love lots of flowers and don’t want to go for the branch-y look either. i don’t mind “tiers” of flowers (staggered different level sets centerpieces) so i think i am opting with that with some low level ones around it, and tree-like centerpieces just covered in flowers.

People have listed a lot of things they don’t like which I am doing and I don’t feel hurt at all… In fact I probably dislike a good bit of what they are doing or using too… no big deal =)

I must admit I don’t like mermaid dresses much or dresses that everyone seems to have. I don’t like flowers everywhere used for everything (centerpieces, rose petals on tables, ect.)… and I don’t like mix match bridesmaids dresses.

You know what I don’t like? That my dress has taken eight months and counting to come in. What the heck is going on with it. It’s decently detailed, but I feel like one industrious seamstress could have sewn it by now much less a bunch of people in a factory.

Seriously. Why do they make us wait so long for our dresses to come in? It makes no sense to me :(.

As far as weddings in general, I only really don’t like it when people are mean to their guests (like that invite that said packaged gifts would be thrown away!) Some things aren’t my style, like mermaid dresses, but they’re great for different people.

Right now, I must say…

I know its early and everything.  We are having our 20 year anniversary VR in 2013.  so 2 years away.

but I am excited, I am planning away, trying to research to get the best deals on EVERYTHING i possibly can.  This is going to be the wedding of our dreams.  We have been through it all… better, worse, richer poorer, sickness and health (most recently).. so we deserve this,

however, to so many people its not taken seriously.  Even his mother (the only parent, on either side, we have left)  She heard about it, and basically p-shawed me off like i was nuts. 

so right now, I think that is really what I hate…

I hate to see really fat/wide handles on bouquets, where the bride’s hand is stretched to capacity just to hold it.

I’m tired of the same old centerpieces using tall vases with massive flowers spilling out of the top.

I think some brooch bouquets are beautiful, but I only like ones that have all the same colors in them.

I REALLY dislike invitations that look like birthday party invites and anything with hearts all over it.

I’m not a big fan of the candy buffet.  I just don’t get it I guess.  What is the point of it?  Lol.

@Jenbee:  Lol.  Sorry, hope I didn’t offend.  I can see that as being a fun alternative to favors especially if everyone is staying at the same hotel.  I ALWAYS have to have candy and snacks when I stay in hotels. I agree I don’t like knick knacks with other people’s wedding dates on it. 

On the other hand, I LOVE birdcage veils, which several PPs mentioned disliking.  Lol.  It’s ok.  A birdcage veil goes with my 50s themed Vegas wedding, as does a tea length wedding dress, colored crinoline, colored shoes, black bridesmaids dress with color accents, etc. 

I really like this thread. We are all entitled to have our own opinions, so long as we are respectful of one another.

Okay I will jump in. I am really not fond of floral bridesmaid dresses, especially if they don’t match. I like mismatched dresses as long as they are all the same colour though. I don’t like mirrors under centerpieces or centerpieces that look awkward… like they should be fuller or something is missing. I can’t stand the garter/bouquet toss it’s messed up lol

I also don’t like it when people allow everyone else to take over their wedding. I know that it is hard to stand up to people but I really wish that more brides would do so. I have a fondness for quirky weddings that reflect the couple.

I also LOVE the birdcage veils but Fiance isn’t a fan so I am not likely wearing one. I don’t like knicknack favors because I can almost guarantee that I am going to throw it out when I get home. Such a waste of money 🙁

I am not fond of invitations or decor with hearts and doves all over them. It was so overdone in the 80s and I didn’t like it then. Sorry to all who love them but I just can’t do it myself.

Nothing wrong with any of these things, but the following are personally not my style:

Birdcage veils (for the record I do like these on other people, but they are so not me)
Cupcakes/candy buffet
Black bridesmaid dresses
Mismatched bridesmaids and chiffon bridesmaids’ dresses (pretty sure I’ll be wearing one of those soon though!)
Black, white, and red as a color scheme, or black, white, and pink as a color scheme
Donations as favors
Letterpress- it’s beautiful but I just can’t get into it! I like the raised thermography print much better

And something that really bugs me: poorly addressed envelopes. My bro got 2 invites in the mail, one was handwritten in ballpoint pen, off centered and sloppy (and this was for a very high end wedding!). You can at least buy a nicer ink pen. The other was printed on a business mailing label! Like a small, clear label you’d use for mailing your resume somewhere. With the kind of return address you get free when you make a donation to the the cancer society. If you want to use labels, at least do a wraparound. But it is not that hard, if you’re making invites yourself, to feed them through your printer. yes it’s annoying but the other stuff looked soo sloppy- this is your wedding! I can’t imagine having such little pride in something I worked hard on- both invites were actually very nice but the envelope was just awful.
