Which wedding style do you prefer? All things glitz, glam, and over-the-top? Or classic, subtle, and understated? Which decor style gets your vote?

    Personally I’m all about over the top! I love that photo by the way!

    I love understated, simple is sometimes better! I don't feel like I need to flaunt my money to get my dream wedding, but I'm also more of a simple style when it comes to this stuff!

    I'm more understated but if I had a never ending supply of money, I'm sure I could think of a few things to make it overstated. Smiley smile

    Understated. Sometime simple can be just as beautiful as over the top!

    Simple. I would be so overwhelmed in the first room, even though it is very pretty.

    My FH and I are both very simple individuals, so under stated would fit us best! Being over the top would just be overwhelming!

    I would love over the top if I could afford it. But accents with an understated style can make it look more elegant.

    Understated for me. I like the negative space when it comes to designs and decor.

    I agree SJ. It’s hard to tell if I would change my tune if I did not have to worry about money.

    I think understated, it's less overwhelming. I prefer picking fewer decorations, but ones that really go with your theme/look than more decorations just for the sake of filling space.

    I love the simple and understated look! I'm just not an over the top kind of person.
