My wedding is totally opposite from the vintagey, rustic, chic, garden style weddings. First I am marrying in the fall on Halloween in Seattle. To FH and me that means rich colors, colder temperatures, while being in the middle of a city – – not rustic barn vintage chic Laughing 

FH and I are both from CA and we wanted to have a formal city like wedding in the Pacific Northwest which is what we’re doing….We are having a Masquerade Ball themed wedding since its Halloween and our color palette inspiration is from the below image – – eggplants, plums, golds, coppers, vintage blues, slate- and I think that’s it……

Mine was a fall theme. Rather traditional with lots of leaves, pumpkins and apples. No hay bales or barns though. The one vintage thing I did was have a 57 chevy convertible as our transportation. It more was more that it was free, a convertible and cherry red.

I’m not, I love them though.  I guess you could say mine will be considered more contemporary?  I don’t want to say modern, and it’s not really traditional.

I’m not – I am going very modern!

Our theme is “Romantic Beauty”, so mostly modern with a woodsy feel!

Yeah, I would say we are contemporary elegance, but not modern. The wedding is a little too rural to go full modern.

I’m not, mine will be “formal city chic” with some garden elements thrown in as well (if that “theme” makes any sense, lol). I do love the Anthropologie, mismatched, vintage-y look, I just feel like I”m really bad at executing it and it feels forced for me to do it, since that’s not my real style.

i feel like 90% of weddings are described as ‘vintage’ which…in turn, makes them a modern trend. ha!

i think many people use the word ‘vintage’ where they mean romantic, feminine, whimsical, etc.

i’ve also wondered what a “vintage modern wedding” means… that’s like saying a casual/formal wedding, right?

I’m not having a vintage wedding. Although beautiful, just not my taste at all.

So many weddings I see online are vintage! I am not consciously planning a vintage wedding, but I think some touches here and there might be considered vintage. I am curious for other sites to look at too – the weddings on all the big ones often seem very similar.

Ours isn’t vintage. It’s cute and whimsical, but definitely not vintage. To me it just means incorporating things that are antiquey…I wouldn’t say that a barn wedding is automatically vintage though because barns just scream rural/farm etc…guess I’m just too much of an outdoors person for it to mean much to me haha

not in the least! I have a very clean-cut and colorful style, and the wedding is turning out very similar! It’s pretty traditional (Catholic and country-club), with bright clean colors and a simple, joyful look.

We are definitely not including vintage themes at all. While browsing the various blogs, it seems that is the only acceptable theme/decor and that you are completely out of your mind if you want anything remotely modern. They’re fine for some people, but not everyone likes that style, and they should not be made to feel guilty or weird because of it. Unfortunately, the only wedding blogs and other inspirational sites only focus on vintage.
