I was having a conversation about wedding trends with a friend today. I was telling her about how my love for mason jars has dwindled since I have seen it all over crazy blog land. OK, so my love of mason jars is still going strong but sometimes I wish it hadn't become SO popular. I will still use the gazillion jars I inherited from A Desert Fete (THANK YOU!).
Then I realized that I have actually never been to a wedding where mason jars were used or where there was a photobooth and I have never heard of any of my friends or family members going to such a wedding so even if mason jars are not new to me they will be new to most of my guests.
Of course, Rock 'n Roll bride , who knows all, posted about this very same topic today! She made a very valid point - "Your wedding guests won’t have been scoring the internet looking for wedding ideas for the last year so will have no idea if something has ‘been done’ or not!" So who cares if that wedding blog you check every day is so over cupcakes, that doesn't mean you can't still have the biggest f*in cupcake tower you could ever imagine at your own wedding.
On a side note, as good a laugh as I got when I first discovered those "tacky wedding" sites, I have to say that if I am supposed to be all about promoting atypical and unique weddings that showcase a couple's individual style and personality then I can't knock a full out camo or S & M clown theme wedding, ya know? More power to them for not giving into the norm and for doing their own thing.
