Now that weddings of all sizes are permitted again, albeit with certain social distancing restrictions in place, checking out wedding trends feels like less of a tease.
Sure, getting married abroad remains pretty difficult right now, but it's still interesting to see which destinations are capturing the imagination of couples worldwide.
According to new research by N.Peal, the world's most Instagrammed wedding location of 2021 is the French Riviera, home to super-glamorous resorts like Saint Tropez, Cannes and Monaco.
The stunning Italian region of Tuscany is right behind, followed by Las Vegas in third. The latter is hardly a surprise given that Vegas likes to think of itself as the wedding capital of the world, and it's been reported that 120,000 couples a year tie the knot there.
