Here at BG, we've been hard at work with our good friend David Tutera reviewing nearly 3,000 your incredible Pinterest inspiration boards to choose the five finalists of our Pin to Win a Dream Wedding Design by David Tutera contest. Then, nearly 8,400 of you voted and helped choose our winner! As we evaluated each and every entry, we couldn’t help but notice some major trends in what you, our fabulous readers, are choosing for your wedding inspiration. Here, a few of the most popular pins from each of the hot trends.

The vintage wedding trend is still going strong! It's no surprise — there's just something that feels so romantic about adding old-world items and antiques to your big day. Many couples opt to include family heirlooms within their décor, giving a personal touch to their vintage wedding.
