Pinterest is a seriously inspiring (and addictive!) site out there that I could not imagine planning my wedding, or really any event, without! Since today is Wedding Wednesday, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share this incredible and free planning resource.
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard, where you pin your interests. Hence that catchy name! As they say on their website, “Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests”. Sounds pretty fantastic, right?!
While currently planning my own July wedding, I’ve used Pinterest to find inspiration and ideas for just about everything!
If you want to get some inspiration for your big day, all you have to do is search “wedding” and you instantly get visual ideas. The best part though, you can then re-pin your favorite ideas to your own board for safe keeping! You’ll never lose an idea you saw again, or spend an hour flipping through a wedding magazine searching for a perfect idea you swear you saw in there!
Let’s say you want to get more specific, and search for wedding bouquet inspiration. Your results might look something like this –
Or maybe you are on the hunt for the perfect wedding hairstyle –
Or the perfect bridesmaid dresses –
Pinterest is oh-so amazing. Search what you are looking for, pick your favorite inspiration, and pin it to a board of your own. They pins will be there whenever you need them.
While planning a wedding (or just about any other time), Pinterest is an amazing resource! If you aren’t already on Pintesest, I encourage you to give it a try. Especially for all the brides-to-be out there! Ask a friend for an invite, or request an invite here.
Happy Planning and Wedding Wednesday everyone!
