Our 20 Most Popular Pinterest Photos of 2018
If you're in the process of preparing for your wedding, you've likely utilized one of the most ubiquitous planning tools the Internet has to offer: Pinterest. It's no wonder—the platform is a treasure trove of inspiration for virtually every aspect of your big day, from the ceremony to the reception and every moment in between. We're the first to recognize this, which is why we're on Pinterest as much (or almost as much!) as you are.
Since we do plenty of pinning on our end, it's not surprising that you've done quite a bit of re-pinning from our boards. And while you've shared thousands of pins, there were a few that resonated most with engaged men and women. That's why we rounded up our top 20 pins of the last year. They'll give you a clearer picture of the 2018 wedding scene and, hopefully, help you plan or inspire a part or two of your own ceremony and reception.
As for the pins you've shared the most? Fun signage, like this wooden board, was popular. In fact, this Love Smith & Co. reception sign was our most-pinned image of 2018! It wasn't just about fun décor, though. You also loved dreamy tablescapes, tropical ceremony arches, and wedding cakes. You were particularly intrigued by new wave confections, including ombré tiers and treats in unexpected shapes (like hexagons!). Another popular motif? Pink—blush place settings were almost as popular as pink centerpieces.
Of course, you'll also find plenty of wedding dress and bridal beauty inspiration on this list—in fact, it's about as comprehensive as it gets.

Though this portrait of country music star Kacey Musgrave and now-husband Ruston Kelly is poignant because of the couple's obvious bond, you were just as taken by the groom's velvet green suit jacket. That's not surprising, since the garment encapsulates two major 2018 trends—velvet and jade-green.
This tablescape, featuring snake garlands comprised of pink and red roses, was particularly popular with pinners. We have a feeling it has something to do with the unique juxtaposition of feminine and masculine colors. How cool do onyx dinner plates and taper candles look with the lighter hues?
Turquoise Ombré Wedding Cake
Are you a watercolor-obsessed bride-to-be? Then you likely already have this ombré turquoise confection pinned in your wedding cake Pinterest board.
Tropical Ceremony Structure
Berta Mini Wedding Dress
Pinners were clearly enthralled by this short-and-sweet (and feathered!) Berta mini dress, which would make for the ultimate reception quick-change.
Purple Drip Cake
Classic Ring Shot
You clearly understand that a classic engagement and wedding ring shot is always a good idea. We love how this flat lay shows off both the couple's bling (the bride's diamond is from Diana Rodi Hall) and their wedding location (Paris).
Hexagonal Wedding Cake
Here's another cake that tackles more than one major motif. Were you more intrigued by this Baked Seattle confection's unique hexagonal shape or contemporary marble fondant?
This style of wedding exit is tried-and-true—it clearly has the pins to prove it. Sparklers make for the ultimate end-of-wedding shot and are a fun way to involve your guests in a major moment during your reception.
Pink Garland Centerpiece
The pins have it—pastel centerpieces, like this hydrangea and astilbe-centric arrangement, are officially here to stay.
Here's proof that men's florals are just as important as the ladies'—you found The Informal Florist's wildflower bouts, comprised of rosemary, thistle, spray roses, and ranunculus, to be as worthy of the re-pin as brides' bouquets.
Pink Place Setting
You'll be hard-pressed to find a place setting as one-of-a-kind as this one. Everything about the tabletop, from the IKEA dinnerware and dusty rose goblets and drinking glasses, to the gold flatware and eucalyptus centerpiece, felt feminine and fresh. Twenty Three Layers was responsible for the design.
Though you've probably seen sleek, modern low-buns and beach waves dominate recent bridal hairstyle Pinterest boards, the classic, cascading updo is timeless. This 'do is decidedly romantic, thanks to its to-the-side position and subtle volume.
Crescent Ceremony Structure
We hear you: We haven't seen anything like this crescent-shaped ceremony structure, which was constructed by La Rosa Canina Firenze for a wedding in Italy, either. The autumnal floral color palette contributed to the altar marker's natural, romantic, and Tuscan vibes.
Gold Leaf Cake
There's a good reason why this wedding cake, which was brought to life by Cloudberry Cakery, has as many pins as it does. The swirled buttercream confection was flecked with blue and gold leaf to evoke the sea.
