Pinterest has become a crucial piece of the wedding design process for many brides. In fact, 38 million Pinterest boards are dedicated to weddings.
It is undeniable that Pinterest has become the go-to site for wedding inspiration, but it’s worth taking a few tips and guidelines into account when creating your own wedding board.
Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm ideas and inspire yourself with our guide to designing your ideal wedding Pinterest board.
Design Unique Boards
In order to make your wedding planning more efficient, create a board for each category of the event.
One good idea is to have a board specially designated for bridal gowns and flower arrangements. Other suggestions we have for wedding boards are:
- Ceremony decor
- Cocktail reception decor
- Reception decor
- Table settings
- Stationary ideas
- Cake design
- Color schemes
- Floral decor
- Bridesmaid dresses
- Place cards
- Seating charts
- Gifts for the wedding party
- Inspirational weddings
Create boards to refer to during the planning process. For example, you could create a board covering your predicted distractions or mishaps throughout the day to help prepare you for your big day.
Use the Secret Board Option!
Pinning your favorite styles can be helpful when you need to reference a specific wedding dress or flower and have trouble describing it to others. However, Pinterest has a great option of keeping some—or all— of your boards secret.
Secret boards allow users to hide wedding details and plans from friends, family, or even future spouses.
If you plan to share your Pinterest boards with wedding vendors, you can always add the vendor as a viewer on the secret board. Giving them a link to your wedding board allows them to see precisely what you are looking for and provides inspiration for your wedding design process, too.
Broaden Your Searches
When it comes to putting together a Pinterest board, don’t restrict yourself to wedding-specific designs. Broaden your search to any aesthetic you find interesting: interior design, fashion, art, photography, or anything else that catches your fancy. Just like life, you never know when inspiration might strike!
You may want to look at New Year’s Eve parties, prom ideas, and even search topics like charcuterie board ideas to serve at your wedding.
Broadening your search will bring results that you may not have considered without thinking outside the box.
Use Descriptions When You Pin
When pinning images to your wedding boards, take a moment to note what specifically interested you about those particular pins.
You may pin something because of the attached article, and these little notes will help when sorting through photos in the future so you can remember why certain images were important enough for capturing.
You should also note what you love about a bridal gown in the description when pinning wedding dresses to your wedding board. This will help you remember details about each wedding gown, including color, the designer, and whether you saw it on someone with a similar body type.
Use the Suggested Pins from Pinterest
Are you searching for new pins? Use the search option and scroll down to see the suggested pins that correspond with your wedding-related searches.
Interested in seeing industry-wide trends or following a curated board with content that you love? When it comes to finding pins, Pinterest will come up with similar suggestions based on what you enter.
You can also explore other people’s categories of wedding boards. If you want to see wedding ideas for winter weddings, wedding decor, or a wedding makeup, it’s easy to explore the wedding category to find inspiration from others.
Find Your Wedding Style
If you have yet to narrow down the season or style of wedding, Pinterest can be a big help.
Are you planning an outdoor summer wedding? You probably should move away from pinning Christmas-themed weddings. But, you may actually get a better idea of what your true wedding style should be if you tend to pin one style over another.
So you need to think about whether your event is more luxurious or elegant and decide if it will fit in with this theme.
Pinterest will help you with planning a wedding and looking for some inspiration. There are plenty of ways to find inspiration for planning your event, including realizing what style suits you by looking at photos taken at other weddings that have already happened or searching posts from experts.
