Every year, Pinterest releases a wedding report and shares what Pinners are searching for and saving when it comes to planning their big day. Here are some of the top trends to help you get the party started.
1. Wedding dresses with capes.
Please don't tell Edna Mode (or Solange, who did this years ago), but Pinterest says wedding capes are IN, and searches for them are up 88% over the last year.
2. Suspended flowers.
Searches for this beautiful way to be surrounded by pretty florals (and get pollen in your eyes) are up by 346%.
3. Grooms in tie-free ensembles.
Men are chill, guys. So chill that searches for this lewk are up by 459%.
4. Pretzel bars with all the dippin' sauces.
Wedding food bars are basically canon this point, but soft pretzels with lots of fancy condiments are apparently the newest iteration. Here for it.
5. Messy updos and hair combs.
A lot of people are apparently on board with the idea that wedding hair doesn't have to be perfect — searches for messy updos are up 1247%. Also, Ariel-approved hair combs are v hot right now.
6. 3D invitations.
One could argue that all paper invitations are 3D, but fold-out ones like these are all the rage at the moment, according to Pinterest searches.
7. Moissanite rings.
Searches for moissanite, a budget-friendly diamond lookalike, are up 294%, which means diamonds are no longer a girl's best friend. (Find some worth pinning here.)
8. Metallic wedding cakes.
According to Pinterest, rustic cakes are out, and modern ones like this are very in — searches for them are up 476% from 2017.
9. Wedding dresses with high necklines.
Someday, turtleneck dresses will be rightfully trendy, but for now, high-necked dresses are where it's at.
10. DIY confetti.
Sure, cleanup from making all of this might be hell, but look how pretty!
11. Jenga piece guest books.
Searches for this interactive souvenir are up 216%.
