How to Avoid the Overdone Wedding Trend

Avoiding the Overdone Wedding Trend Just like there are blogs -like ours- that share wedding ideas, hoping to inspire new brides to create and enjoy their dream wedding, there are also those that hate on every wedding trend that has every existed. Like every one. Sure, trends change. Some can be "overdone" and other's end up not being functional and need to change.

What to do when your Dream Wedding Ends up on a Wedding Trend Don't List

Who the EFF cares what "they" think?! Whether it is friends or a blogger on GQ, what matters most when it comes to planning your wedding is what you like and what you want your wedding to look like. For example, if you want to use mason jars as part of your centerpieces or have a photo booth with props for your guests to take pictures, then go for it! Don't let your best friend tell you she thinks mason jars are sooooo over and definitely don't let a blogger talk you out of it. (Though, Jessie Mooney does bring up a good point in her blog 9 Trends Wedding Planners Hate as Much as You Do that photo booths can create a bottle neck. Instead of nixing them completely, maybe make a plan on how to avoid the problem!).

Ask yourself these three questions:

  1. What do you want your wedding to be like? Pin the pins, create your vision boards, read the bridal magazines and determine what your want.
  2. Why do you want it to be that way? Then decide where your motivation comes from. Is it because you think it is beautiful or fun? Or is it because you are determined to be in style and on trend? If it is the latter, than having your wedding plans touted as being out dated matters. If it is because it is what you love, then others not liking it doesn't really matter.
  3. Will it work? Is it functional? If yes, roll with it. If not, then maybe rethink the idea!
Trends change and you are probably planning on only having one wedding, so you might as well do what it is that you like. So how do you avoid over done wedding trends? By not caring what people that aren't you think!
