Wedding Planning Tools: The Power of Pinterest {Featured Bride, Alaura K.}

Featured Bride, Alaura K. Wedding Location: Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas | Wedding Date: September 8, 2012 I don’t know any bride that isn’t on Pinterest. Pinterest has changed the way brides plan their wedding day. Now they can search the trendiest décor and brands with the click of a button. The best part is it’s free! I’ve been able to plan my dream bridal shower, bachelorette party, and wedding all on Pinterest.

Five tips for Pinterest wedding planning Wedding planning tools: Pinterest

Get the most out of Pinterest wedding ideas.

Along the way I’ve picked up a few tips that I wish I knew in the very beginning of my planning. If you follow these five simple guidelines, you are bound to have the perfect Pinterest wedding!

Five Pinterest wedding planning tips:

Categorize. Some décor elements deserve their own board. Most brides just have one wedding board, but I suggest multiple wedding boards. From my experience, the wedding flowers, your wedding dress, photography, and the cake each deserve their own board. Trust me, they will fill up fast! Personalize. Don’t just follow the experts; that’s what every other bride is doing! Follow the brands that mean the most to you. For example, I’m following The Wedding Shoppe, Coeleen Trier, and Embassy Suites Wedding. Share. I know you want these ideas to be just for your big day, but Pinterest works best when brides share the unique ideas they’ve found! Connect. Link your Pinterest with your Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites to increase your influence, status, and followers. Like it! Hit that “like” button too! If you love it, pin it and like it. If you just think it’s super awesome, but you’ll probably never use then just like it. Either way, don’t forget about that like button.

What will you do with your Pinterest wedding ideas?
