Dark Wedding Vibes
Traditionally, brides-to-be want to wear white to their wedding. And don’t get us wrong, we love classic ivory wedding dresses. But with so many beautiful black wedding dresses out there, who says you have to wear white? The latest trends from Pinterest prove that modern brides are stepping away from tradition for something more unique. “Black dress wedding party” searches increased by 34X, “black boho wedding dress” by 4X, and “black wedding ideas” searches are up by 6X. Moreover, “dark wedding ideas” (59X), “dark lovers aesthetic” (39X), and “black wedding cakes” (+94%) are all trending. The most searched color combinations for dark weddings are red and black (4X) and sage green and black (3X).
Forest and Woodland Vibes
2022 is all about connecting with nature and having ceremonies under the trees for a whimsical day to remember. Quite literally. The “woodland fairy wedding” searches increased by 7X, “enchanted forest wedding dress” (5X), and “forest wedding ceremony” (2X). Couples are looking to design a fairytale scene for their wedding day. Think woodland elements like branches, wildflowers, moss, ferns, and earthy tones. Plus the stunning natural beauty of a forest will work perfectly for your wedding backdrop.
Love Is For Everyone
Pinterest is a celebration of all types of love, and its users are proving that. The platform is full of searches for “non-binary wedding outfit” (8X), “lesbian wedding bridal party” (3X), “gay wedding suits” (3X), and “queer wedding” (2X). All couples deserve to have creative freedom with their wedding day and make the day truly a reflection of their personalities. And Pinterest is the perfect place to gather some inspiration and get a look at what other couples are looking at for their wedding day.
Move over diamonds, pearls are having a moment. Pearls have long been associated with weddings. They are simple, and elegant and can be worn long after your wedding day. From pearl veils and pearl cakes, Pinterest predicted the rise of the pearls back in December. “Pearl wedding” searches increased by 3X, “pearl wedding dress and decorations” increased by 2X, and “pearl cake” (+46%). Pearls can also double as either your “something old” if they are vintage, or “something new” if you decide to buy a new style just to commemorate your wedding day.
