This is interesting – I didn’t really realize pick-ups were so trendy. 

I remember in the 90s looking at a bridal magazine at my aunts house and dreaming of a dress with cap sleeves! Don’t see those much anymore.

My mom keeps reminding me that I told her I didn’t want to wear her dress because it was too lacy, and then I bought an all lace dress. I just didn’t want to go into all the reasons I didn’t want to wear it – high neck, long sleeves, poofy, bright white.

I think the way fashion works is things from 10 years ago look blah, 20-30 years ago look weird, and 40+ years ago look classic. So lets just not show our kids our wedding pictures till we’re grandparents.

@2dBride:It is obvious that your dress is from the 70s, but its beautiful! One of my favorites that I’ve seen from that decade.

um…were pick-ups ever fashionable?!

To answer the OP’s question: the things that I think will look the silliest in 30 years are the things that I think look silly now, like pickups … and tiaras … and bright shoes … and those wannabe-hipster mustaches in wedding photos …

If we’re talking photography… I think vignette edges (darkening around the edge) will go out of fashion. I mean this kind of thing (this isn’t a wedding photo but it’s the technique I’m talking about):

Plus antiquey colour washing. They’ll probably look as dated as the white fuzzy edges of the 80s wedding photos.

Plus there are some really common ‘poses’ that will date too. Silhouetted bride looking out a darkened window, bridal party jumping, etc…

The silliest I think will be the couple-under-the-veil look:

(I think this style can look really sweet up close but I’ve seen some where they’ve been zoomed out that can just look plain silly:

And I definitely think the diagonal angle photo will date quickly.

I think there’s nothing wrong with having arty, trendy photos… as long as not all your photos are like that. A few basic photos of the ceremony and your family that won’t date badly are important to have.

Some styles return over and over again like the mermaid/trumpet style dresses and the applique (Audrey Hepburn wore a gown that I still absolutely love)…It’s sort of like corduroys. Poofy sleeves, though, I hope they never come back.

I <3 strapless dresses- my gown is strapless, as are most of my other dresses- but I think they are definitely a trend that will *date* us ๐Ÿ™‚  While my Mom says she loves my dress on me, she told me a few times while we were shopping that she doesn’t care for strapless or corset-backs… Also:

Trumpet/ Mermaid, pickups, birdcage veils, and probably shoes and hairstyles that are trendy now (like side-bangs).  I thought about borrowing my sister’s shoes (her wedding was 11 years ago), and they had a chunky heel and def. are not in style anymore.  They look a lot different from the stiletto-heeled shoes that are in right now! 

All fashion trends cycle and become dated over time, but that will be part of the fun in looking back at all of our fabulous pics!!!

My dad has work Chuck Taylors since the 70’s. We just smile when they come in each time. I think as long as we can find them, he’s gonna wear them! Laughing

And I can’t wait to rock my “reverse apron” dress!

Love this thread!

Colored crinolines and shoes, for sure. (No offense!)

I don’t think colored wedding dresses (TRUE colored ones, meaning all a color other than pastel or white) will really go out since they’re not exactly “in” to begin with, but color splashes will, I think.

I don’t think side buns will ever go out of style (unless you are referring to a severe side bun)

I do not think colored shoes will go out of style at all.

In my opinion there are very few wedding dresses that in 30 years won’t look weird or dated.  I don’t care how “classic” it looks now, “classic” will change over then next 30 years.

@abbyful: Can you imagine your great-grandmother being like “hmm… I wonder what will become dated?  Maybe the side poofs on my veil?  Naa… that will always be in style” hehe.  All joking aside, that is a beautiful picture!  I love looking at how styles have changed over the years.

I agree with the previous posters – things come and go – like short dresses are in again, and my grandmother was married in a short dress… wearing a bolero!

  

Me, I’ll be getting married wearing a mermaid dress with colored shoes and a birdcage veil with flower fascinator!

@charmedlife357:It is the period between 2000 and 2010, like the 80’s would be 1980-1989 ๐Ÿ™‚
