With 4 billion wedding ideas, Pinterest has inspiration for your big day regardless of your vision or budget.
Below are some of the top trends on Pinterest to get the party started.
Comfort is key. For a little extra coverage, women are turning to high necklines (+351%) and toppers like boleros (+163%). Meanwhile, jumpsuits (+178%), sleeves (+75%) and flats (+119%) are making it easy to dance like all of your friends and family are watching.
It’s your day, do it your way! If white isn’t your colour (nobody’s immune from a red wine spill, not even a bride), try a rose (+46%) or champagne dress (+358%). And if you’re not a veil person, throw on a cape (+88%). For jewellery, minimalist backdrop necklaces (+207%) are a great way to add some charm.
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the guys. With stylish tweed suits (+165%) and relaxed tie-free ensembles (+459%), grooms are getting the chance to show a bit more personality.
Something old, something new, something borrowed...something on the shoe? Leave a note (+58%) on your future spouse’s shoes for a sweet surprise.
Unique engagement rings Three types of engagement rings to make getting down on one knee a little more stress-free: Moissanite gems (+294%), Art deco (+173%) and Oval stones (+125%).
Brides are saying “I do” to messy updos (1247%) and hair combs (+89%). For those who prefer to let their hair down, there’s soft waves with side parts (+55%).
Give yourself a natural shine! When it comes to makeup, brides are opting for lip gloss (+459%) and barely-there shine (+343%). But if there’s one feature to go big on, make it your eyelashes: long, lush lashes are up 152% on Pinterest.
Piece of cake. Don’t let your dessert outshine you on your wedding day—change those towering cakes for something a little more elegant and relaxed, such as Fig cakes (+575%), Metallic decorations (+476%) or Minimal, white frosting (+235%).
Weddings are about love… and who doesn’t love cheese and carbs? Say goodbye to fancy plated dinners and eat pizza (+120%) instead.
