    I worried about trendy vs timeless at first too until I realized that most likely, no matter what I pick its going to look dated in 20 years. Go for what you love, you can always have a vow renewal in 20 years and get something in style.

    I don’t think it’s overly “trendy” at all. It is unique, but has many timeless elements.

    ALL of our wedding dresses are going to look outdated in a few years. Our daughters will say “OMG Mom, what were you thinking?!” and our granddaughters will adore our “vintage” dresses and pray to fit in them. The point is to choose a dress right now that is flattering to your figure and showcases a style you love.

    That dress is lovely, by the way.

    I think lace is timeless.  I agree with the PP who said that most of the styles sold today will look dated in 20 years, but I don’t think the two you have chosen are overly trendy.

    I think the lace is timeless, but the cut of the dress is a bit trendy. Beautiful dresses either way!

    Both dresses are really beautiful- I’m not sure what your concern is with the dress being “timeless”. I’m guessing it’s a concern for how we view puffy sleeved/big hair 80s-styled dresses now? 🙂 It’s inevitable that dress styles are going to change- I don’t view these as trendy, per say, but that doesn’t mean you’d wear the same dress 10 years from now. (Your tastes would change, as well)

    The only thing that would seem overly trendy to me is the sheer layer on top. But I don’t know that it would fall that way in every picture IRL so I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

    I almost forgot to mention that I really really love the second one!

    It’s stunning! I think the simple, romantic elements make it timeless…to me it has (a sleeveless) princess bride look going on.

    I think both are much more timeless than trendy.

    I think they are timeless, because they are elegant and classy in a simple and romantic way… 

     I like the first one much more! I like that it has “sleeves” (sorry I don´t know how to call those strips) and I think they give the perfect touch to that style of dress. Though I might be mistaken.. not sure, because I love both!
