A new report by money.co.uk has revealed that the most commonly saved wedding trend on Pinterest was Harry Potter.
A Harry Potter-themed wedding could range from subtle nods to the series through, say, a red and gold Gryffindor color scheme or golden snitch topped cake to a lavish, all-out Yule Ball recreation.
Indeed, Harry Potter was the number one wedding trend – despite the book series ending in 2007 and the fim series in 2010 – based on number of boards created around a specific wedding theme.
For those a little less Hogwarts inclined, the next two most popular weddings were ‘Vintage’ and ‘Earthy’.
While vintage can mean just about anything (early 2000s Paris Hilton or 70s ABBA themed ceremony, anyone?), the research shows that pins saved to these boards frequently featured classic Princess Austin wedding cars, wedding dresses with lace and beading, flower arrangements of white, green and peach and traditional white icing tier wedding cakes.
1920s weddings came in 6th and Great Gatsby wedding came in at 15th, surely featuring lots of green lights.
