Would having bright red cheeks in the wedding photos stand the test of time

Which came first? Were brides lamenting the lack of bridal pant suits to bridal shop owners,or discussing their desire for bridal pant suits on message boards? Did such conversations lead designers to answer the call? Or did the designers who created the newest lines of bridal pant suits simply begin telling everyone that those pant suits are the latest trend?Bridal pant suits can certainly be lovely,and for brides who prefer the look of pants to a traditional gown,having a selection of stunning pant suits to choose from is wonderful.But does the mere existence of those pant suits qualify as a trend? Or is it simply the telling and retelling of the story that "Pant suits are the newest bridal trend," that makes us believe that they are indeed the hottest new thing?Pant suits are just an example.I certainly have no objection to them.I personally think a bride should wear whatever High Low Prom Dresses makes her the happiest,whether it's a flowing gown,a pant suit,a moo-moo,a bikini or aluminum foil.Every bride is entitled to indulge her own dreams.But trends can sometimes get in the way of that.What if the latest trend is the heavy application of ruby red blush? Would having bright red cheeks in the wedding photos stand the test of time,or would there come a moment when you would one day say,"I wish I hadn't done that.Why did I follow the trend?"Trends,a.k.a.fads,come and go.Wedding photos are forever.If whatever trend of the day can pass the "anniversary test",so be it.If you can anticipate looking at your wedding photos on your 35th wedding anniversary and feel comfortable that you will have no regrets,then perhaps the trend of the moment is indeed right for you.But if you opt for a pant suit or bright red cheeks just Cheap Prom Dresses 2016 because it's trendy,then later wish you hadn't,that's a regret that could have been avoided.When the perfect choice is made,the wish for a do-over never materializes.Trends can be helpful when they highlight something we perhaps haven't before considered.But acknowledging trends doesn't mean that we have to follow them just to consider ourselves modern and enlightened.Brides-to-be often have their perfect wedding in mind,and that's the wedding they should have,one that comes to pass without a naysayer's,or a trend-starter's,undue influence encroaching on the vision.Trends should be viewed with a critical eye.Some are fabulous.Some are horrible.But no one should literally buy into them if the only purpose in doing so is to follow someone else.Individuality in this world is shrinking all the time.
