Gone are the days of having to spend money on hundreds of wedding magazines and keeping track of torn out pages. Using Pinterest for your wedding inspo makes the planning process effortless and fun!
Starting Your Pinterest Account
What’s a pin and what’s a board? If you’re an avid pinner, scroll past this paragraph.
Like any time you sign up to a new social media platform, it can be a little confusing when starting out. However, you will be an expert pinner in no time! First things first, Pinterest is a social network that allows users to explore interests visually by saving (aka pinning) images to a mood board. Users can also upload their own images for others to pin. Your collection of pins are then saved to a board you create with a theme. Perfect for wedding planning.
Why It’s The Best For Wedding Planning
Pinterest is a great way to find your wedding style! If you’re unsure of what vibe you’re going for, exploring Pinterest is the perfect way to find your style.
Start a board called “Wedding Style’ and start pinning images of whatever you see that you love. Soon enough you’ll see a trend emerging and discover if you’re more of an autumn, rustic or a glitz & glam lover.
Another reason Pinterest is perfect for wedding planning is that it allows you to share your ideas with others. You can invite people to your board where they can save pins and add to their board. Whether it’s your finance or your wedding planner, it’s a great way to communicate and plan together. Or when working with your florist to plan flowers you can show them your “Wedding Flowers” board, where you’ve put together images of all the wedding florals you love. Effortless!
An added bonus of using Pinterest for wedding inspo is that pins can link to the websites of the business who posted the image. This means that when exploring, you can find suppliers and companies to use for your special day all in the one website.
The easiest way to organise your pins is to create a separate board for each category. One for ‘Stationary & Signage’, one for ‘Dress Inspiration’ and so on. This way, you can save each pin to the relevant category and keep things nice and organised. Only having one board for all you wedding inspo will get super busy and confusing! Pinterest makes it easy when browsing to save to your relevant board. For example, if you stumble across a make-up look you love, you can easily save to your make-up inspo board.
If you’re already a pinning expert it might be best to start a separate wedding account. This means that when you log into your wedding account you won’t get distracted by unrelated pins and can focus specifically on wedding inspo!
To keep your wedding planning and inspiration on the down low, Pinterest has the option to make secret boards so no one can see what you are planning. This ensures all details of your wedding will stay a complete surprise!
