Pinterest is a great tool for planning your wedding but there are definitely some practices in using it efficiently for your special day. Pinning wedding ideas to your boards is the very first step. In the process of picking up the right ideas, remember these points:
- You love, you pin.
Pin and repin what appeals to you and what shows your personality.
- Have a look at your pins on each board to see what about them attracts you.
The time to find out what draws you to these pins marks the beginning of your wedding planning. While going through this process, you might discover that you prefer some stuff rather than others. This is going to help you move forward in your planning.
- When choosing your wedding vendors, keep in mind what you’re drawn to.
Use your preferences to limit your search. For example, if you are drawn to beach weddings, you can skip boards about ballroom venues. While looking for beach weddings boards, you can also find your beach wedding photographer.
- Perfection does not exist.
You might not be able to recreate exactly the pin you love. Thousands of variables can come together to produce a unique photo. When recreating, keep in mind that it is a copy of someone else’s work at someone else’s wedding. By trying to recreate perfectly, you are missing out on the opportunity to make your wedding a unique one. Allow yourself and your wedding vendor to be creative. Use the Pinterest boards to show what you love, to communication your style and feel of a wedding you will like. Get inspired, keep it personal, edit out details that do not fit and trust a professional to add a unique tone to your wedding.
