...but according to Pinterest's 2017 wedding report, this image of a typical wedding may soon be no more.
The once popular wedding trend of having several bridesmaids is starting to lose traction, with the report stating that searches for more intimate, selective ceremonies have increased by 100%.
The report also identifies some less common wedding trends that are gaining popularity, including wedding tattoos, taco bars and blue suits for the groom... that's right, taco bars.
The report lists a number of possible reasons for the drop in popularity of bridesmaids, including the difficulty in picking from a large group of friends, the cost of paying for bridesmaids dresses and the increase in smaller, more family oriented ceremonies.
If you're someone who thinks back on their time as a bridesmaid and is filled with the dreadful burden that comes with having to select - and pay for - a dress you know you'll never wear again, this news is likely to sit well with you.
If, however, you are one of the rare few who treats the responsibility of being a bridesmaid as if you're Kathryn Heigel in 27 Dresses, we're sorry for the bad news!
