How To Have Your Own “Pinterest” Wedding

It’s no secret that Pinterest is the go-to wedding app for wedding planning; millions of brides use Pinterest to help their dream become reality! The downfall is some brides find it difficult to bring their personal version to life, especially when doing it on their own. Sometimes Pinterest leads brides to have unrealistic expectations that don’t necessarily match reality. Through my experience planning weddings and using Pinterest, I have found certain do’s and don’ts that help you benefit from Pinterest!

DO be inspired by Pinterest. There are so many ideas for your wedding on Pinterest- from ceremony decorations to place settings; Pinterest has almost every idea you are looking for. DON’T use Pinterest to try and re-create a wedding. Your wedding will not be a replication of your Pinterest board, and it shouldn’t be. Bringing in your own ideas and tastes add the special touches to your wedding!

DO organize your boards. You don’t have to do this by creating multiple boards; you can organize by having one board with many subsections. This way, when you want to look back on past pins, you can search by category, for example: centerpieces, dresses, etc.

DO use Pinterest’s search guides to help narrow your results. When you search things on Pinterest such as: “wedding dresses” or “wedding centerpieces”, Pinterest will then pop up with many sub-categories such as “DIY”, “elegant”, or “rustic.” Tapping on these categories gives you more specific results!

DO invite people onto your Pinterest board. If you are working with your wedding planner, this can be an amazing tool! Sharing ideas and incorporating things that you see on Pinterest can really help the people you are working closely with understand what you envision on your big day! You can share your board with your planner or send individual pins. This is something I have seen brides benefit from and I love to get ideas of what they need and/or want me to do.

DO show your pins at a wedding dress appointment. Pinterest is your vision board, so it helps stylists get an idea of what you are looking for.

DO use Pinterest to help with many do-it-yourself ideas. DIY projects can cut down on budget, as well as bring new ideas to the table by showing them to your planner. DON’T expect all your DIY projects to turn out exactly the way Pinterest shows, they can be helpful in directing you, but if you don’t have a lot of free time on your hands, DIY projects can cause brides to stress out! That’s why I am your own personal DIY person!

Once you have gotten ideas and inspiration, DON’T continue to use Pinterest! Step back and begin planning your wedding specifically for you. This way, your expectations won’t fail and your personal style will be incorporated into your special day!
