Tiffany blue/brown and pink/brown.  Sooo many weddings in the last ~5 years have had those color schemes.

And shabby-chic.

I totally agree with the candy buffet, photo booth and mason jars. I’d like to add feathers, manzanita trees and uplighting. Also western-style wedding invitations. I saw them at Costco, which to me means widely popular and on it’s way out.

Gah, this makes me so sad! When we first decided to get married, I immediately knew I wanted mason jars and wildflowers.. that’s just so ME. Honestly. I knew the other ‘rustic’ details would just fall into place.

Then, a few weeks later, we kinda thought it would be unique, fun, and laid back to have it in a barn. We both loved the idea.

Then, after we came up with these novel ideas that are just US, I started browsing the great www and was horrified to see that everyone and their mother is already doing this!!!!!!! It makes me a little sad to know that something we thought of on our own and felt so unique to us is now going to look so dated and ‘trendy’ down the road. BOO.

Oh well, it’s exactly what we want and we can do it on a bugdet.. That’s all that matters, right? 🙂

Shabby chic, though it’s so lovely.

Monochromatic ball bouquets. 

Sticks/trees as centerpieces.

Funny choreographed dances? A la that YouTube everyone saw? Not sure on this one, though.

@gocubbies:If it is YOU, then everyone will remember it as being YOU and not being trendy.  But if I did that, it would be trendy because that rustic style is not my natural style.  So go for it, and don’t feel sad.  Because your style happens to be trendy, you’ll be able to get deals on the decor you want!

I think it’s hard to predict what will be outdated in 30 years, just because that’s plenty of time for any trend to come full circle again 🙂

I think in 10 years, we’ll be seeing some changes in the wedding industry as far as trends and colors.

I agree with the “rustic” theme, as well as the photobooth (fauxtobooth?) however don’t think mason jars will be dated at all. They have stood the test of time for decades, and nearly everyone knows someone who does canning, preserving, etc. and they have become something consistently available in western culture and present in many homes and garages. To me, mason jars are something that is timeless based on the infinite number of ways to purpose them.

I think the hair fascinator, although gorgeous, will become dated one day; as well as the Chuck Taylors-as-groomsmen-footwear.

Essentially though, you can argue anything at this point because no one knows what is going to be “dated” or “trend-y” years from now… you won’t know ’til you get there.

I also consider myself a pretty trendless person and am having a photobooth! I feel so stylish! This is a totally new thing for me…

As far as colors, sorry if anyone is having these, but the trends towards highlighter colors, like lime green and orange, I think will be dated in 30 years…unless they come back around! I don’t love pastels and am not using them, but I think they will always be in vogue for weddings, and I’m hoping jewel tones?

I wonder if we’ll see the return of the cascading bouquet – I feel like everyone does hand tied now.

It’s impossible for colors to become outdated unless someone is able to create new ones that don’t exist yet, which is impossible to do.

Themes will stay the same since they are generally flowers/colors/seasons, etc that cannot change with time. The same goes for other themes that are used such as personal interests.

Trends are much harder to predict though.
