Unique like everybody else
Such is the dilemma of many brides-to-be.
As I peruse magazines and online articles (type in “wedding trends” on Google and you will find nearly 95,000 entries) on the latest and greatest in the world of weddings (a world I can now enjoy as spectator), I canât help but wonder who is pulling the strings here?
I came across this story that aired on WCIA in Champaign, Ill.:
Check out the irony in this quote from a wedding planner:
If you are doing the same thing that everyone else is, how in the world is that going to make your wedding different?
I was married in a classic white gown—the kind that never goes out of style. Again, if all the other brides are wearing color â your idea of adding a pink sash is not as original.
Why not be really original â go back to tradition? Itâs a big stretch, I know, but sometimes a traditional wedding with a personal touch can be more unique than anything found on the pages of Brides.
Remember: One brideâs trend is anotherâs trash.
