Look inside your own house to wedding clues if you're being seduced by PInterest wedding boards. If you don't have anything that's lime-washed, distressed, faux-aged, handmade or hessian, the rustic look isn't really"you". Similarly, if you don't really have much that's gold, copper, brass or silver, the metallic wedding look won't "mesh" with your and your partner's style.
Guests want authenticity. There's a skin-crawling feeling when you attend a wedding that reflects nothing of the couple and feels like a wannabe event. You WANT guests to say, "That's so you!" rather than, "Oh, yes, that's pretty trendy" if you've shown no interest in a particular look. Your wedding should be a genuine reflection of your relationship, not an Instagram like-score.
The top 10 "trends" publicised by the wedding magazines are based on products and services pushed by their advertisers. Yes, really.
Remember that whatever you like now - whether it's trendy or not - will be out of fashion in two years' time. Should you care? No, because everyone's wedding will look dated at some point in the future. You chuckle at the perms in '90s wedding, right?
But you might want to take advantage of current wedding trends including: small weddings, weekday weddings, daytime weddings, marrying outside of summer, and cupcakes instead of a big wedding cake.
