From destinations to decor, our Wedding Pinterest Report reveals the most pinned wedding styles and themes so you can know exactly what’s popular right now with those walking down the aisle. 

If any of the trends take your fancy, remember that you can use a 0% purchase credit card to make large purchases, meaning you can spread the repayments of your big day and reduce the amount of interest you pay.

The Pinterest data proves that the most popular themes inspiring our weddings are from all aspects of life; it could be the couples’ favourite film, as Harry Potter weddings features as the most pinned theme; or it could be more decoration-related like Vintage, Earthy, and Natural which features in the top five themes.

Opting to get married abroad has become much more popular over the years, as it not only offers the perfect backdrop but it can also double-up as the perfect honeymoon. However, if you want to get married closer to home, there’s nothing stopping you from bringing your favourite destination to you and your loved ones by taking inspiration for that place’s distinct style.

By Country

Whether it’s the rich, jewel colours setting the tone or the lovely lit-up lanterns adorning the venue of choice, it’s Morocco that we are taking the most inspiration from. Many European countries also feature in the top 10 list - Greece, France, and Italy are 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, while Ireland is the 7th most-pinned country with 990 boards.

Finding ‘the one’ is easier for some than others, so there’s no surprise that there are so many Pinterest boards dedicated to this integral part of the wedding day.

Flowers play a big part in a wedding, but the main star of the floral show will always be the bride’s bouquet. Symbolic of adoration and loyalty are sunflowers which are inspiring the look of bridal bouquets more than traditional roses that rank in 2nd position, and peonies, which are 4th on list. 

Interestingly, our love for home plants also feeds into our bridal bouquet inspiration as succulent bouquets are the 3rd on the list. Also, the latest floral trend taking social media by storm is dried flowers which features 11th on the most popular bouquet list with 233 boards.
