The Power of Pinterest! 2024 Wedding Report

In the vast landscape of social media platforms, Pinterest often stands out as a hidden gem, especially for businesses. While many entrepreneurs focus their attention on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, underestimating the power of Pinterest could mean missing out on significant opportunities for growth and engagement.

2024 Pinterest Wedding Report

As we head into the 2024 wedding season, people are turning to Pinterest to find inspiration, plan and shop for their special day. With over 3 billion wedding-related searches and more than 10 billion wedding ideas saved globally in one year on Pinterest, the 2024 Pinterest Wedding Report is filled with fresh ideas to inspire your brides.

This year, people are skipping the stress of large weddings and planning for easy-going, smaller gatherings to support the ‘quiet life’. They are also nostalgic for the timeless elegance of eras past, with searches related to vintage weddings on the rise. And Gen Z specifically is leading the charge in a rebellion against the neutral beige and white wedding, sparking a renaissance in colourful, vibrant wedding aesthetics. 

‘Quiet Life’ weddings

Pinners seem to be turning away from over-the-top, expensive weddings and instead putting more emphasis on quality time with loved ones and guest experiences. Trending venues show that they are planning intimate weddings in cosy environments that connect with nature. They are embracing casual wedding dresses, easy hairstyles and simple make-up. This may be due to increasing desires for the slow, easy lifestyle—searches for the ‘quiet life’, a life of fewer stressors and mindful living, have increased 530% globally since last year.
