7 Controversial Wedding Trends — Love It or Leave It?
There are some trend’s we look back on and wonder “Who ever thought that was a good idea?!” (Bridesmaid dresses with shoulder pads ring a bell?) Hindsight is always 20/20, but have we really learned from past mistakes or will be banging our heads down the road when we open our wedding albums a few decades from? Which of these trends would you try and which would you pass by?
1. White bridesmaid dresses
This wedding taboo is steeped in tradition. No one’s supposed to wear white except the bride, right? But more and more brides (Pippa Middleton wore white!) are opting to put their maids in light neutrals like eccru and eggshell, and even pure white.
2. Dressed up wedding pets
3. Trashing the dress
So trashing the dress can create some pretty cute photos, and if you’re never planning on wearing your gown again why not? On the other hand, brides are going to extreme lengths to get a great photo — and that we’re not so sure about.
4. Footless sandals for a beach wedding
You know the controversy over those five toe shoes, well these are toe shoes of weddings. They’re a practical alternative if you’d like to go barefoot for your beach wedding, but some brides are having a hard time wrapping their head around foot jewelry.
5. Bridesmaid boudoir shoots
Boudoir shoots have expanded to include not just the bride, but the bridesmaids too.
6. Excessively Photoshopped wedding photos
When we first saw this photo we couldn’t stop laughing, and just a few months later there’s been countless copy cats, but is it too much of a good thing?
7. Tattooed wedding rings
Couples are ditching traditional wedding bands for a ring they can never take off.
