There’s no doubt that Pinterest is a fantastic source of wedding planning inspiration, and it’s a great place to catch up on the trends as they happen. Here are the top wedding trends for 2018, according to their latest report…
Comfort is key. For a little extra coverage, women are turning to high necklines and toppers like boleros. Meanwhile, jumpsuits, sleeves and flats 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 or champagne dress. And if you’re not a veil person, throw on a cape. For jewellery, minimalist backdrop necklaces are a great way to add some charm.
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the guys. With stylish tweed suits and relaxed tie-free ensembles, grooms are getting the chance to show a bit more personality.
Something old, something new, something borrowed…something on the shoe? Leave a note on your future spouse’s shoes for a sweet surprise.

Give yourself a natural shine! When it comes to makeup, brides are opting for lip gloss and barely-there shine. 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, metallic decorations or minimal, white frosting.
Weddings are about love… and who doesn’t love cheese and carbs? Say goodbye to fancy plated dinners and eat pizza instead.
Give your guests with dietary restrictions something extra to celebrate with vegan wedding food.
Surprise snack! Tie the knot with a pretzel bar, then keep the party going all night long with midnight snacks.
