@Willow1991: Princess cut diamonds have been around for almost 50 years. It’s the second most popular cut of diamonds next to the round brilliant. Princess cut is essentially a square brilliant anyway. I don’t see them going out of style. I see maybe ring styles holding those diamonds going out of style.

@brox: They definitely are very popular these days and I don’t think they will go out of style per say but I do think another cut will be popular in 30 years. Maybe emerald cuts will be all the rage then… who knows?

@brox:  Even though they won’t necessarily look “out”, their popularity may associate them with this this time.  In the early 90’s, it was all marquis cut everywhere you looked.  I rarely see an ad with a marquis cut engagement ring any more.  Still, for those that have them, they are still petty jewelry…not exactly as big of a statement as stepping out in a puff-shouldered bridal gown 20 years after it was the new new thing.

I remember loving princess cut diamond engagement rings over 10 years ago, so I definitely don’t think it’s a 2010-2011 thing.  I do think the halos are very popular right now. 

I think pick ups have been on their way out for a couple years now.  At least i hope so.  They are my absolute least favorite type of dress.  They remind me of either down comforters or cupcakes. 

I think beaded belts will fade at some point.  Along with ruching.  And textured skirts.

I totally agree with pickups and mermaid/trumpet silhouettes

As far as halo rings (which I have one and I love it, I loved the style for years ever since I first saw it), I don’t see them as “trendy”, they’ve been popular since the 1920s/1930s.

Maybe it’s just where I live (Kansas City), but I am the ONLY person I know that has a halo-style engagement ring.

I don’t think they require a lot of maintenance. What extra maintenance would they require? I clean mine with jewelry cleaner every few months, I would do that regardless of the style of ring it was.

I think it will all look trendy in 30 years, heck, even in 10 years. I think what we all have to look forward to is the trends coming back and reminiscing “oh I remember this style when…..and I rocked it!” with our kids and grandkids. 

Wedding trends I see that will be dated soon are pretty much what everyone listed here, plus:  (unless I missed them)

-Updo Hairdos

-Square tipped, bright white French manicures

-Spray tanning, a la Snookie -I have seen enough photos of orange brides that I think they will regret the spray tanning of the 2010’s!

@exoticmariee: haha ditto on over-spray tanning.  Yikes.  But updos, really?  You think so??

I’d say flower sashes.  Such as the one on my dress!

@exoticmariee: I think the square nails and the spray tanning will live forever. Not that I will do either, despite being Jersey born and raised, but I think their popularity has nothing to do with fashion (seriously, were they ever in?)–people who like that look have liked it for a looooong time and aren’t going to change their minds.

I think my parents look so cute at their 1979 wedding, but we always make fun of my mom for those bridesmaid dresses! I’m sure my kids will get me back one day by making fun of mine.

my future in-laws at their 1970 wedding, Future Mother-In-Law rocking a short dress.

my grandparents, both married around 60 years ago. I think it’s true that we will all think our grandmas look classic and beautiful no matter what era.
