A damask wedding

A while after I made this decision, something happened in the wedding world: Damask became really, really trendy. In other words, the bandwagon jumped on my wedding decor. I'm not really one for being trendy, so when I finally got engaged, I decided I wasn't going to use damask. After all, I didn't want my wedding to be lumped in with all those other weddings.
Then, I realized that I just wasn't excited with the wedding colors I had chosen (burgundy, black and champagne) without the element of black and white damask. As I drooled over pictures of damask wedding elements on various websites, I got over myself. Who cared if the main decorative element in my wedding is "trendy?" I know that I decided on it long before I saw it pop up wedding websites, and that's all that really matters.
Moral of the story? Don't get too hung up on trends. If you like a trend, don't ignore it just because it's a trend. If you don't like a trend, don't feel obligated to us it just because it's popular. Make your wedding the one you'll be happy with it.
So what types of damask items am I looking at? Here are a samples of a few products that might show up at my wedding (Click on the link below the picture if you're interested in purchasing one, too):
