What's the deal with bikes?

Maybe only Poli and apple can answer this, but I noticed that they both have old school bikes in their wedding pics.  Is this a new trend or something?  Or just coincidence?

  • All things vintage-y seem to be trendy right now.

  • Bikes probably fall into the "whimsical" category.

  • There would be nothing whimsical if I tried to get on a bike for a picture.

  • So it's like the new parasol or fan?

  • It also kind of strikes me as hipster, vegan, "green", etc.  But that's just my impression of it.

    I want some with my bike, but it is totally non vintage. Plus, it'd have to be a TTD session because chain grease is no joke. 

    I do think the trend is meant to be more whimsical and vintage, just like the photographs with the sun shining through the people so everyone is yellow and blurry. I associate those 2 trends.

  • I have a vintage travel theme so it fit in. I'm using the bike basket though as my card basket. I highly doubt we'll take any photos with it. Way to hard to ride it in what I'm wearing. Definitely trendy like the parasol or carnival things.

  • There's someone here that has a bicycle built for two.

    I'm not gonna lie, I want that in my engagement pictures.



    It's so corny I'm ashamed of myself, but I want it.

  • It's also one of the first songs I learned how to play on piano...

    "Daisy, Daisy, give me you answer do.
    I'm half crazy all for the love of you,
    It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage.
    But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two"

  • I don't know, but Rick's mom has a 2 person bike that she said we could have, and I'm honestly tempted to take it, paint it yellow, and use it for the wedding. Bikes and picnics go together, right?
