I’m excitedly planning my wedding around a rustic theme (mason jars, ribbon garland, basically the whole rustic deal). My colors are blue and orange (I guess orange has seen a recent surge in popularity in wedding colors lately). So basically my wedding is one of the themes/colors that’s “in” right now. And I can’t help but think that my children will look at my wedding and it’s decor and think that it’s silly. Kinda like “Mom…you seriously paid full price for all this stuff that they MADE to look old and beat up? Weddings in the 2010’s were so weird…” Kinda how I look at wedding dresses and hair styles from 80’s weddings and chuckle a bit. I’d like to think the dress I chose is timeless, but who knows maybe years from now going strapless will be considered out of style?

Haha love this post! I feel that having a Destination Wedding is saving me from doing all the trendy stuff I would love to do but can’t because I would have to transport it all. Honestly though, how fun will it be to look back and try to explain these things to the kids?
ETA: My wedding dress might be the 80s equivalent of our generation…maybe I will have some explaining to do…

I’m doing a classic wedding with nothing crazy. Nothing trend like mason jars, or rustic, or anything. I looked at one of my aunt’s wedding albums and saw powder blue tuxes in the 70s – now that was a laugh!

We kept our wedding pretty simple and classic, so I doubt there’s much that won’t age well. My dress may be out of vogue but fashion comes and goes, so I’m not worried. It’s simple and well cut, so it will hold its own!
eta: We didn’t decorate b/c we were outside in a garden. Nature doesn’t look silly even 100 years later. They might think it was boring though!

I saw some awful wedding party photo from 1990. Huge hair, huge dress with huge sleeves… I’m sure she thought it was hot at the time, but boy, it did not age well!
And I’m pretty sure our kids will gawk at our weddings and say, “Ewww mason jars? Really? A mermaid dress? Gross!”
It’s unavoidable I am sure!

No matter what happens, they’re going to feel the same way we do when we look at those cringe inducing photos from the 80’s with wind tunnel tested hair, poufy sleeves, hand fans instead of bouquets, bridal gowns encrusted to the point of reaching critical mass and tiered wedding cakes with battery operated water fountains in the base…it’s unavoidable…so just go with it!

- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
Ours is going to be pretty quirky (the theme right now is engineering and bunnies…) so I’m sure it’ll look outdated or outright weird to future and current generations. I don’t really care!!

Honestly I hope that my wedding isnt outdated. Im not doing anything crazy or in style at the moment. Im going for simple, and hopefully that doesnt get outdated. But who knwos? Maybe *simple* is whats in right now and I just dont know it, and in a few years there going to say wow that simple was crazy.

my wedding was very simple and very classic. I didn’t do anything fancy, the reception dinner was just a sit down dinner and everybody ordered their own food etc. No decor nothing.

My wedding doesn’t have any theme. And the colors match the venue so I think it’s pretty classic but who knows what the future brings…
