You knew they would be in here, and here they are. For some reason, mason jars have become the decoration of choice for weddings, whether they’re in the Boho style or not. They’re useful items to have around the house in case you want a quick drink or need somewhere to put your change, but getting five hundred of them for your wedding has made them grow old. Fast.
Why would anyone want to drink out of these? They aren’t made to do that, they’re made to store canned peaches. Mmm, peaches. In short, mason jars are bad for weddings, good for peaches.
Those Oh-So-Funny Cake Toppers
Here's how cake toppers should go nowadays: is there a bride? Get a bride. Is there a groom? Get a groom. Don't make social commentary about how the bride is a “ball and chain.” In fact, even though this trend has been around for as long as wedding cakes, they are thankfully finally falling out of favor. Happy couples are springing for flower toppers, going without entirely, or not even having a cake.
Even if you do get something for the novelty, who's going to laugh at them? Distant uncles and kids who don't know any better? You can come up with something classier, we know you can.
Matching Bridesmaid Dresses
Matching bridesmaid dresses? But every wedding has those! Well, sort of. It used to be that the ladies had to get a specific dress, from a specific store or seller, and that was that. They might be able to accessories a little, but nothing more than that. It's made for some truly uncomfortable outfits.
Nowadays, brides are putting down a few rules: color, shoulder style, hem length, etc. Then the bridesmaids are allowed to pick a dress that follows the rules while also looking good on them and being a little unique. That way they all have a bit of individuality, and the dresses can be reused.
Cakes Covered With Fondant
Fondant is another thing that has been around for a long, long time, but has only recently come into vogue when it comes to weddings. Pinterest has increased the interest in perfect-looking cakes, and fondant is a good way to do that, but there are many people who find the taste off-putting.
A lot of people might just end up peeling it off their piece and throwing it away, so all you're paying for is a good picture. If that's important to you, then go for it, but most cake decorators would suggest just going with good old buttercream. A lot of things are classics for a reason.
Dogs in the Wedding Party
We love our pets, but that doesn't mean we should put them in the day that might very well be the most important of our lives. Unless they're very well-trained, they can't be relied on to follow orders. Orders such as “Bring the ring here,” “don't eat all the cake” or “don't go potty on the father of the bride.”
A dog can be plenty cute, and they might be welcome at a wedding ceremony or reception if they're well-behaved, but they really shouldn't be part of the proceedings. Keep things easy on yourselves by not including this random chance.
