The most[-]popular wedding board on Pinterest are ones looking at a ‘Harry Potter wedding’. These boards include ideas for Harry Potter location[-]related table names and even Great Hall[-]inspired dining set-ups through to famous romantic quotes printed on the bottom of wedding shoes (“After all this time? Always”), [C]hocolate [F]rog wedding favors, and cakes adorned with the Deathly Hallow symbols.

The second[-]most[-]popular wedding board on Pinterest are those looking at a [v]intage wedding. Of course, ‘vintage’ can mean lots of different things to different people, but pins frequently saved on these boards show the classic Princess Austin wedding cars, wedding dresses with lots of lace and beading, flower arrangements of white, green, and peach, and traditional white icing tier wedding cakes. Couples’ love of bygone days is seen in other popular Pinterest trends, which are a little more specific with their time period, with ‘1920s wedding’ coming in 6th and ‘Great Gatsby wedding’ coming in 15th.

The next biggest wedding trends are focused around a design aesthetic, with ‘Earthy wedding’ and ‘Natural wedding’ placing third and fourth. This is a newer trend seen in recent years and involves bridesmaid dresses and decorations in shades of taupe, chestnut, topaz, burnt orange, and sand. Palettes of brown and pink are very on-trend for weddings in this theme, according to Pinterest, with cakes decorated with natural flowers and greenery, earthenware table settings, and flower arrangements of Pampas grass, dried flowers, and gypsophila.

Outdoor weddings are, unsurprisingly, dotted in the top 20 trends thanks to the restrictions on weddings over the last year, with [g]arden [p]arty wedding placing 7th, [m]arquee wedding in 10th, [g]arden wedding in 13th and [b]otanical wedding in 20th place.
