Pork pie wedding cakes are on the rise, as reported by Pinterest, which has seen a 20% increase in pins of the savoury alternative during 2016.
And this isn't the only unusual form of wedding catering that has grown in popularity with Pinterest users; gold pineapple wedding cakes, cheese wedding cakes and most notably, geode wedding cakes (which have seen an increase in pins of 200%), have all proved firm favourites.
Uncovering a myriad of statistics that suggest couples are swaying towards more non-conventional weddings, further findings for 2016 include:
- Boho wedding hair pins - up by 47%
- Dessert tables - up by 13%, with macaron towers increasing by 52% in the last six months
- Alternative wedding attire - wedding dress jumpsuits up by 14% in the last six months
Engagement rings are also seeing a shift in convention, with brides opting for non-traditional designs such as morganite (up 62%), opal (up 42%) and pear shaped diamond (over 100% increase) in the past year.
However, classic wedding bands remain popular, with the most sought-after designs over the last year including solitaire (up 27%), pave (up 24%), three stone (up 58%) and halo rings (up 11%).
