Summer is officially here which means wedding season is in full force. With COVID restrictions easing up around the world, many couples who postponed their nuptials in 2020 are finally getting to celebrate their big day with loved ones and they're going all out with the quirky trends according to Pinterest. 

The social media platform has revealed its list of top trending wedding themes and destinations for 2021 and honestly, everything screams millennial.  

The Pinterest trends were unveiled in new UK-based research by which declared Harry Potter as the most sought-after wedding theme in the country. Yep, that's right. It turns out British couples are so obsessed with the J.K Rowling phenomenon that they want a Hogwarts-inspired wedding—and after the year we've had, who could blame them for craving a little escapism? (Does that make us Cheugy?)

Other popular search terms on the platform last month were "vintage wedding", "earthy wedding" and "marquee wedding". Lockdown rules in the UK have been changed and wedding ceremonies can now welcome up to 30 guests. Having a marquee wedding will no doubt be one of the biggest go-to's this summer, especially if the weather continues to be on our side.
