When it comes to wedding planning, Pinterest is an absolute godsend for finding inspiration, and keeping it all together – we’ve lost count of the times we’ve seen an amazing lighting idea or a cute wedding sign on the site, and immediately saved it to our wedding board.


With the site being such a wedding authority, when Pinterest HQ sent us over their insights into what wedding related things people are searching and saving, we were really interested.

Read on to find out the top wedding trends for 2018, as decided by how much they were searched on Pinterest.
