4 Tips for Planning a Pinterest Wedding

ISS_4567_01485.jpgBy now, you’ve probably heard of Pinterest (and you may have already spent countless hours there). If not, let me catch you up. Pinterest is essentially an online scrapbook. You can create virtual “boards” with different themes and “pin” anything you want to those boards.

These boards can be used for various purposes -- documenting new recipes you want to try, a dress you want to keep an eye on, and, yes, even planning your dream wedding. A lot of soon-to-be brides use Pinterest as a way to gather ideas for their big day. (And it’s not only brides-to-be that have a wedding board-- this writer has one and has no intention of getting married anytime soon.) Pinterest can be an extremely useful wedding planning tool, and we want to make sure you’re using it to its full potential. Here are 4 tips to help you plan your perfect Pinterest wedding:

1. Create Separate Boards

Instead of creating one huge board for your wedding, consider creating different boards for the various aspects of the planning process. For example, you can have separate boards for your dress, flowers, and invitations. This way, you’ll be able to keep everything organized and you won’t have to sift through hundreds of pins of wedding dresses trying to find that wedding invitation you liked. Here are some other board topics to consider: makeup, bridesmaids, photography ideas, cakes, groomsman, his and hers rings, and centerpieces.

2. Follow the Right Boards

To get the most out of Pinterest, make sure you’re following relevant people and brands. That means that you should be following wedding experts! You can also tailor the experts you follow to your particular style. Here’s an initial list of people to follow to get you started: Brides Magazine, The Knot, Bridal Musings, Disney Weddings, The Broke-Ass Bride, and, of course, My Trio Rings.

3. “Pin It” Bookmark

If you want to make pinning even easier, download the “Pin It” bookmark. This will generate a button on your bookmark bar that will allow you to pin anything from any page. This way, when you’re surfing the web for his and hers rings and you find sets you love, you can just click the “Pin It” button to have the link go straight to your Pinterest board designated for your wedding rings. 

4. Pick Your Battles

Let’s just throw it out there -- Pinterest can be addictive. It has innumerable DIY ideas for weddings, and it’s easy to get caught up trying to make every aspect of your wedding a DIY project. Have an idea of things you can DIY and things you should leave to the professionals. Also, it’s important to remember that sometimes less is more. When you look back on your day, you’re going to remember the important things like seeing your partner’s face as you began to walk down the aisle. You won’t care that you didn’t have a replica of the candy buffet you saw on Pinterest. Don’t try to do it all, and focus the elements that are most importantn to you as a couple. 

Are you getting ready to walk down the aisle soon? Make sure you have your matching his and hers rings ready!
