How to keep your wedding timeless!

Like with any industry, the wedding industry is FULL of trends. Styling, add-ons and details included in your special day will vary across the years and decades.

Just recently we saw the come-back of the mirrored disco balls, and before that, dried and preserved boho styling was all the rage.

Trends are worth it if the trend itself is something you’ve always loved and would have included in your day whether or not it was currently “in style”. However if you’re following a trend just for the sake of being current, you may come to regret it later.

Here are some things I’ve found are timeless, so that no matter when you look back on your big day, you’ll never regret your choice.


Green + White

The classic green and white floral décor has been the pillar of wedding styling forever. It never gets old. Incorporating traditional symbols of white for purity and accompanied by the respective greenery makes for a theme that can be as simple or as elaborate as you like.

It matches nearly every venue and every piece of furniture and flatware.

It shows up stunningly in both colour and black and white photography, and because it doesn’t incorporate colour, it never goes out of style because it’s not following any colour trends.

White florals also come in pretty much every flower variety meaning no matter where you get married in the world, you’ll always have a local option if sticking to your budget is important.

You can modernize the florals or keep them classic knowing any style works with white.

Not having a bridal party

Yeah, this one might be a little controversial but hear me out.

I get that half the fun of getting ready is getting ready with your tribe. And I’m totally for that.

But what im saying is that not having a bridal party will never go out of style in your personal photos. So often I’ll speak to brides who reflect on their day and it comes out that not all of who were in their bridal party are still in their lives. Whether they grew apart, had a falling out or for other reasons, the photos treasured most are those with family or just the couple themselves.

Leaving out the bridal party means that your photos are timeless in the sense that it’ll only ever be the two of you both in the photos as well as in life.

This doesn’t mean you can’t still get ready with your nearest and dearest! It just means for the formalities, it’s just you and your beau.

End with something sweet

In my 11 years of planning alone Ive seen large wedding cakes, small wedding cakes, donut towers, cupcake towers, dessert stalls, gelato carts and customized cookies as the way to end the reception and begin the party.

The popularity of wedding cakes comes in and out of cycle every few years, but it’s almost always replaced with another sweet option.

No matter where you sit when it comes to the wedding cake, ending the meal on a sweet note will never go out of fashion. It’s the universal signal that a meal is done, and the next portion of your night can now commence.

With cakes becoming increasingly expensive, I totally understand the change of direction that many couples are taking in lieu of the cake, but nine times out of ten, its always for an alternative sweet finisher.

Videography

Will videos of your special day always be in style? Yes.

Do couples always choose to have it? No.

And usually, the reason for not having it isn’t so much because its not fashionable or because they don’t want one. It comes down to the fact that it’s an additional cost. Most couples are happy first to have photo documentation of their wedding, and then, if budget allows, they’ll sneak in videography too.

I’ve lost count of the number of clients I’ve had who specify that they want photography, and IF they can afford it, videography too.

It’s a pity that it takes second preference to photos, but the ease of sharing photos, going through them and plucking out individual ones to feature are often easier than going through a video.

It’s an extra cost yes, and even if you don’t watch the video a lot, having a wedding video is a classic token of your day. I read in a recent poll that one of the biggest regrets many couples have after their wedding was not opting for videography.

Luckily these days there are more affordable ways to get moving imagery of your special day in the way of social media packages and BTS reels that vendors offer.

I’d recommend taking this if your budget doesn’t allow for full videography. There are moments even photos cant capture.

In Memory Of

Unfortunately, not all those we love the most can be with us on our special day.

Honouring those by the multitude of ways out there – a memory table, a reserved seat at the ceremony, a drink named after them – is always something that will be on trend.

There may be new or different ways to represent them, but dedicating a space or item in their name is something that will never go out of fashion and is always appreciated by every single person who attends your special day.

Personalizing your Day

It never goes unnoticed or underappreciated when you put thought into your day to make it your own.

Add-ons or details that make the day truly representative of you as a couple and/or puts your guests at the forefront cementing the thought that you really are so appreciative of them being there and that it means the world to you.

Personalizing your day could look like many things.

It could be the wedding cake topper made in the likeness of your dog, personalized fans or luggage tags to gift your guests or simply unique entertainment options that will have all of your guests leaving thinking it was the best night of their lives. Whatever the case may be, personalizing your day will never go out of style.

So keep your wedding timeless. You don’t need to incorporate all of these into your day, they are just some examples of how you can prolong the love you had for your special day for years to come.
