It’s a proven fact that we spend most of our day perusing the Internet. So of course, when it’s your turn to be the Bride-to-be, it’s completely normal that you look to the Internet for some inspiration. It’s very rare that we find an actual Wedding Planning book in the hands of our brides these days. We often have brides approach us with emails filled with ideas they have found all over the web or in magazines. And lately the biggest trend is Pinterest. THEY ALL LOVE PINTEREST & SO DO WE
So what is Pinterest?
“Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos.” Wikipedia 😉 “Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing things you love.”
How to use it?
First things first request an invite from their homepage. Once you get one, log in and they will direct you to a “Pin it” link that you can drag into your bookmarks or favorites bar.
Pin it: A pin starts with an image or video you add to Pinterest. You can add a pin from a website using the Pin It bookmarklet or upload an image right from your computer. Any pin on Pinterest can be repinned, and all pins link back to their source.
Creata Board: A board is where you organize your pins by topic. You could pin ideas for remodeling your bathroom to your House Projects board, for example. Boards can be secret or public, and you can invite other people to pin with you on any of your boards.- – So, for example, if you find a DIY tutorial on wedding Card Boxes, you can add it to your “Wedding board” and it will always be available for viewing at a later date.
Follow: When you follow someone, their pins show up in your Pinterest home feed. You can follow all of someone’s boards or just the ones you like best
