25 Share-Worthy Wedding Photos

The Pinterest phenomenon has revolutionalized the way we plan our weddings. Brides like myself use it to store hundreds of inspirational photos and get other brides' feedback instantly. comScore reports that the site has grown from under 1 million users in May of last year to about 20 million this April! This led us to wonder—what are the top-shared photos of all time? That's where Repinly comes in: a new Pinterest directly that measures the most popular pins, boards, topics, and influential followers.

Here are 25 of the most popular wedding pins of all time:

1. Romantic Updo

Repins: 41,631

In the up-or-down debate, updos take the crown (on Pinterest, at least). This unstructured style is ultra-flattering on all face shapes and hair types, plus how romantic is the tucked-in bloom?

Ecstatic grooms are popping up all over our feeds and we couldn't be more thrilled. Just don't put too much pressure for him to have an emotional reaction when you walk down that aisle—in the words of my fiancé Jason, "that moment is nerve-wracking enough!"
