Wedding styles vs wedding trends

When a bride starts planning the look and feel of her wedding, she can get confused by all the options available to her in terms of which “look” she can choose. A common question is: “What is the difference between a wedding style and a wedding trend?”

A wedding style is considered to be the “theme” of your wedding. It expresses the look and feel of the wedding as a whole. Wedding styles can include: Vintage, shabby chic, rustic, timeless elegance, classic, minimalist, modern, bohemian, country, farm style etc.

A wedding trend is something (a colour, a pattern, a motif) that is popular at a specific time, and may help you execute your wedding style. Some trends go out, and some don’t. Wedding trends can include: Hair braids, birds, the colour mint, the chevron pattern, snack stations, bunting and peplum wedding gowns etc.

Thus, brides should consider how and what trends to incorporate into their wedding style. We often hear brides say: “I don ‘t want it to look dated 5 years from now”. Integrated with caution and lending to the wedding style is probably the best way to bring a trend into a theme. For example: bunting (a vintage trend) and at a vintage themed wedding (style) may not be as timeless as the vintage brooch bouquet (trend).
