We all have a different idea about what the perfect wedding should look like. When seeking style inspiration, social media is one of the first places many brides look to. With billions of wedding ideas shared across the platform, Pinterest has revealed the three types of searches that are trending with Pinners around the world. 

The trends indicate there’s an increase in simpler and more personal weddings and searches for small, budget-friendly wedding ideas have increased by 80%. Here’s what we know about the top three trends.

Keeping it low-key
