Wedding trends come and go, but photos are forever. How can you ensure your wedding pictures are as timeless as your love? Be bold, be yourself, and be real about which wedding design trends are on the way out.
4 Wedding Trends to Leave Behind
- The bride pays. We love tradition. Family traditions, Southern traditions, and personal traditions you share as a couple all deserve a place of prominence at your wedding. One tradition that’s outlived its use? The bride (and her family) footing the bill. In an age of working women and the occasional house-husband, it’s time to leave this antiquated tradition behind and start your partnership before the I Do’s.
- Clashing themes. Pinterest can be a lifesaver when it comes to planning and organizing your wedding. But there are times when it’s all too much. After all, you love rustic weddings, but movie-star elegance has its appeal too. Neutrals look beautiful against a classic backdrop, but bold colors are making a comeback . . . Pick your wedding theme, plan it around your venue, and stick to the plan, or your wedding will be a hot mess of competing styles and colors.
- Food trucks. We know, it’s a cute trend. Food trucks make wedding catering fun, casual, and wonderfully inexpensive. But before you book a food truck for your wedding, ask yourself whether you really want brightly colored vehicles in the background of your wedding photos. Wedding trend analysts predict that 2017 catering will move back into the realm of elegant, plated dishes. If you love family-style dining, limit it to one area of the dining area, like hors d’oeuvres or desserts.
- Pleasing other people. Wedding trends come and go, but your love is forever. In the end, it doesn’t matter what designers, friends, or even your parents say. Choose something that will make you happy!
