10 Trends You Should NEVER Try On Your Wedding Day: Don't Be A Bride #Fail

June 22, 2012 by emilyanderson
shefinds | Weddings

Now, let’s get something straight – we love trends. From colorful skinny jeans to nail art, we love covering all the hot-hot-hot seasonal trends on SHEfinds. But there’s a time and a place to try an extreme new look – like neon eyeshadow, or heel-less pumps (you know, like the ones Lady Gaga put on the map) – and it’s definitely not on your wedding day. Here are 10 fleeting, fashion-ey trends brides should avoid at all costs.

1. Heel-Less Pumps 

Lady Gaga, trend-starter; Giuseppe Zanotti’s Metallic Leather T-Strap Sandals ($895).

You can thank celebs like Lady Gaga and designers like Giuseppe Zanotti for bringing the extreme heel-less heels trend in to the mainstream. And although they are sold in the shoes departments of Saks and Nordstrom now, we cannot stress enough that heel-less pumps are NOT a good idea for brides. You will trip and fall down the altar — not a good look.

2. Neon Nails

We love neon nails for everyday life — it’s a HUGE trend this year, along with neon clothing and neon acessories (aka neon everything). It’s fun on the runway, or under a strobe light – but on your wedding day, it’ll look a too alarming. If a trend doesn’t pass the “will I think this is still cool in 5 years?” test, don’t try it on your big day.

3. Jumpsuits 

We know you plan your entire life around Real Housewives reruns, but please, please, please do not try to make “wedding jumpsuits” a thing. Kim Zolciak is not a fashion role-model.

4. Oversized bows

Don’t get us wrong – we adore bows! On your dress, on your pumps, on your flower girls, in your decor scheme – but big ol’ bows in your hair are just a little Minnie Mouse, no?

5. Pointy Nails

Here’s another trend we can blame on Gaga, although Beyonce and Rihanna are also offenders. When it comes to your nails, you’re looking to dazzle — not take out an eye. Weddings are a full day of hugging, squeezing, and caressing – don’t leave anyone with a permanent scar. Leave this edgy look where it belongs – in music videos.

6. Temporary Lip Tattoos

It almost goes without saying, but zebra-striped lips on your wedding day are a major don’t (even though it is one of the 10 Fashion Dares we think you should take before you die). The majority of your wedding guests will probably just think you have the worst case of cold sores ever.

7. Tiny Hats

While it may look okay on Barbie’s big plastic melon, tiny hats have definitely had their day. Why conceal that gorgeous wedding hair under a ridiculous mini top hat?

8. Feather-y Fascinators

On the flip side, we have giant fascinators! We hate to slam the Duchess, but we think it’s important that you avoid a similar fashion misstep. Giant fascinators risk ruining a wedding look by detracting attention from everything else that’s going on below – like, the bride.

9. Pink Streaks

Unless your bridal muse is Rainbow Brite, it’s best to avoid these overly trendy hair FX. They’re a surefire way to make your wedding photos look insta-dated.

10. Bare Midriffs

Bare midriffs are a traditional (and totally hot) look for Hindu brides. However, no one else gets a pass on this one. This is definitely a trend that should be left to brides who are allowed to wear red. Besides, wedding dieting is stressful enough without throwing in 50 crunches daily.

But of course, it is your wedding. You’re the bride, and you can do whatever you want! But we absolutely reserve the right to snicker at your unfortunate bridal wardrobe choices behind your back.
