Pinterest has launched its Pinterest Predicts report and '70s-inspired weddings are set to be huge in 2024, with searches for 'groovy wedding' increasing 170% and 'retro wedding theme' spiking 80%.

Experts at NIO Cocktails have shared popular cocktails from the 1970s that you should serve at your retro wedding: "The era that brought us the rise of disco music, retro prints and bell bottom trousers also brought us a resurgence in classic cocktails and new ones, too! There were many cocktails that were popular in the 1970s and if you're wanting to throw the perfect '70s-inspired wedding, we'd definitely advise including our top three '70s cocktail picks in your wedding."

Negroni - to be served as a wedding aperitif
A big hit in the '70s was the Negroni and it will make for the perfect aperitif at your retro wedding. Combining gin, campari and sweet vermouth, the Negroni will be best enjoyed by guests at your drinks reception, before the wedding breakfast, to spark their appetite.

White Russian - to be served after the wedding breakfast
The White Russian is a classic dessert cocktail which grew in popularity in the '70s, thanks to its creamy vodka combination. Featuring vodka, coffee liqueur and cream and served with ice in a lowball glass, it makes for the perfect option to serve after your wedding breakfast for your guests to enjoy.

The Old Fashioned - to be served at the first dance
Suave and sophisticated, the Old Fashioned cocktail was the cocktail of choice in many bars in the 1970s. This cocktail combines whiskey, sugar syrup and Angostura bitters topped with ice and served in a lowball cocktail glass. A cocktail that can be enjoyed throughout your wedding day, we'd suggest serving an Old Fashioned before your first dance, for guests to enjoy while they toast to your special moment."
