This year in wedding trends, it’s all about keeping it sweet, simple but unique and classy. If you’re in the midst of planning a ceremony and reception, see what’s popular around the world with these 5 biggest wedding trends of the year according to Pinterest.
Pinterest is a super helpful platform when it comes to keeping up with styles and trends in fashion, food, makeup, home décor, and most of all wedding planning. If you and your S.O. are looking for some inspiration, here are some trends you might find helpful in planning your dream wedding:
If you’re a lover of comfort and practicality, switch up the traditional puffy white dress for a chic jumpsuit. You can enjoy your special day to the fullest and be comfortable all day and night. Opt for something with a clean silhouette that flatters your body – the perfect jumpsuit is out there!
2. Metallic Wedding Cakes
You can’t let your wedding cake outshine you but you can add pretty little gold, rose gold or silver accents to some of your tiers. Talk about a fancy cake. Yes indeed, get ready to see loads of metallic-inspired cakes at weddings this year – think rose gold, silver, yellow gold, and even bronze!
3. Pretzel Bars
There’s always a moment when the clock strikes midnight and your guests are feeling slightly peckish after grooving for the better part of the evening. The solution: tie the knot (literally) with a pretzel bar at your reception. Offer a few topping and dip options and you’ll turn a bunch of tired looking faces into happy ones.
4. Suspended Flowers
Turn your venue into an ethereal floral dream by suspending single stems from the ceiling. Imagine seeing an overhead ocean of colours blooming above you during your first dance as husband and wife!
5. Hair Combs
Love the messy updo look but don’t want to look unkempt? Slide in an elegant, simple hair comb to spice things up while still keeping it classy. This year brides will be shinning with beautifully embellished hair combs worn on their own or under veils.
