    I don't know that French is out, but most of my brides have one color in a pink/peach/neutral. Also makes your fingers look longer, lol!

    I don't know about French being out, but it's definitely overdone. I think I'm going with short nails in a darker color (purple).

    I will probably be going with something similar to these (minus the nail decorations!). I'm known for only and always wearing pink nail polish. My wedding day shouldn't be any different!

    Do what you want. I'm over the French and will probably do pink with a bit of a sparkle. I may even go for something a little bolder. I LOVE bright colors and think it'll be fun. My engagement pics have a bright ish pink.

    I found a look on Pinterest I LOVE, light pink nails with a small white heart on the ring finger. So sweet and pretty!

    I have long fingers so while I'd like to do a nice lighter pink (I'm carrying pink roses), it'll make them look even longer (not in a good way).

    I bought a shade of brown from Butter London (love their polish). FH is wearing a chocolate tux and I am wearing leopard print shoes so I went with something to match those colors...

    I think French is classic, with a design in your colors

    I pretty much always wear a pastel color on my nails. I am wearing a pale pink with a little glitter.

    I always wear French, so I will for my wedding too

    I had a white dress and blue theme too. But I wore red garnet jewelry, which is a family heirloom and very dark red.

    My toes were dark red and inititally I wanted ti do my fingernails the same way. But the nail lady shared that with all the soft colors that might be too much and looking back, too trendy.

    I went with a variation of french, not as stark as the traditional french. Very soft pink translucent nailpolish and soft white edges. It looked just elegant and classic and not too over the top.

    Have no pictures yet.

    @Future Mrs. L, do you know what that sparkly nail polish in the second photo is?

    For the wedding, I will probably do a natural-nail mani with OPI "Princesses Rule." I don't think French is "out," but I do know that natural-nail is en vogue at the moment, whereas fake nails, even short French ones, *are* kind of "out."

    I personally hate french mani/pedi's. I haven't had that since i was like 16. It looks a little fake to me but I have seen more natural versions of it. It all depends on your style and preference.

    I'm going for something like this. I like the more nude affect, I like just a touch of bling.

    I agree with not going too trendy; it may look dated when you look back at your photos. I'll be doing a soft creamy color that doesn't stand out too much. I don't always have my fingernails painted, so nothing too obvious.

    As for my toes, these are always painted a fun color... I may go a bit flashy by using one of our wedding colors (dark purple). But not 100% sure yet.

    I saw this on pinterest and fell in love, but I would change it from a nude french tip to just a pretty blush color with lace.
