When it comes to wedding planning, Pinterest is the ultimate, most magical place for inspiration. With over four billion wedding ideas, it offers a never-ending trove of possibilities, regardless of your vision, budget or even relationship status.
And the statistics did not disappoint - it seems 2018 is all about going back to basics, with brides embracing a more laidback and natural beauty look on their wedding day.
According to the report, messy updos are the go-to wedding hairstyle of the moment, racking up a whopping 1247 per cent of searches, likes and pins. And we can totally see why - this no-fuss hairstyle is both chic and elegant, plus it keeps your tresses neatly out of the way while you bust a move on the d-floor. Polished AND practical.
Hair combs also topped the list at +89 per cent while those who preferred to let their hair down ditched the bobby pins and hair clips for a classic look with soft waves and side parts (up 55 per cent).
In terms of makeup, Pinterest predicts that this year a refined, natural look is top of the wish list with brides opting for neutral makeup and luminous, glowing skin. Interestingly, the statistics also showed that instead of reaching for a long-wearing lipstick, most brides are choosing to wear a lip gloss for their big day (searches are up by 459 per cent) and a slick of barely-there shine (+343 per cent).
However if there’s one feature where bride-to-bes are going all out, it’s with their eyelashes. It looks like long, luscious lashes are having a major moment (seeing an increase of 152 per cent) – and for good reason. Whether it be with the help of lash extensions or a simple swipe of volumising mascara, it’s the easiest way to draw attention to your peepers.
