musicandentertainment_logo

With one of the most talked about couples, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, getting hitched this past weekend, everyone’s clamoring for details about what happened at the A-List nuptials. From what the guests wore to who was (and was not) in attendance to getting a glimpse of THE dress(es), Kimye’s wedding followed many trends that are to be expected in the 2014 wedding season.

David’s Bridal uncovered a variety of these trends in its “What’s On Brides’ Minds” survey of newly engaged and married women. See below for stats from this survey that shaped Kim and Kanye’s big day.

#UnpluggedWedding

Just as many predicted Kim and Kanye’s wedding guests kept photos from the actual wedding ceremony and reception close to the vest. The media-savvy couple made sure there were strict social media rules in place at the wedding so that no important photos were leaked by their guests. This embodies the trend of brides wanting to take control of what gets posted about their wedding in the age of social media… yet despite their best efforts, guests at the Kim and Kanye wedding did post photos after the event of the menu and pictures taken in the photo booth.

  • According to the David’s Bridal survey, 44% of women also think it’s important to have social media rules in place on the big day with 14% wanting their guests to post NOTHING at all while at the wedding.

Don’t Unveil the Gown

  • Even for the always posting, ever social media savvy Kardashian sisters, one rule was strictly followed: the bridesmaids shall not post photos of the bride in her wedding dress.
  • A majority (62%) of the brides surveyed by David’s Bridal believe that bridesmaids should not post any pictures of the bride in her gown before the ceremony.
  • More than half (58%) of the brides who participated in the annual David’s Bridal “What’s On Brides’ Minds” survey believe that the bride and groom should be the first to post a photo from the wedding – which Kim did today on her Instagram account (photos were posted also by E! online).

It’s a common belief that weddings are the perfect place for singles to couple up. Kimye’s wedding affair was no different as the bride’s bestie, Brittny Gastineau, is rumored to have hooked up with fellow wedding guest magician David Blaine. A tryst like this is commonplace at the modern day wedding!

  • A majority of respondents in the David’s Bridal “What’s On Brides’ Minds” survey (52%) said they had guests “hook up” at their wedding. Love is in the air!
