3 ways to use Pinterest to plan your wedding!

Pinterest is the most awesome site I have ever seen! I love Pinterest. It has been said that it is an addicting site, and I might be the first member of Pinterest Anonymous! I can stare at my screen for hours, watching what my friends pin, and finding stuff to pin on my own boards!

I realized how lucky new brides are, to have this website today. I didn't have anything like this when I planned my wedding. I had to do it the analog way, cutting pictures out of magazines to get inspired. Today, all a bride needs is a Pinterest account, and she has the world's most beautiful ideas at her fingertips! How can you make the most out of this wonderful tool? I am so glad you asked!

1. Browse by category! Search for cake, dress, flowers, favors or shoes. Whatever item you put in the search bar, the magic of Pinterest delivers you a plethora of images to sort through. Choose "Wedding and Events" from the category drop-down, and narrow your images to only-weddings! In no time at all, you will have a vision to match your dreams!

2. Find the source! This is one of the most wonderful things that Pinterest offers - a link to the original source! I searched and found a pair of thong style sandals, decorated with satin roses, with the caption "dance all night". When I clicked on the image, it showed me that the original pin was from, and I clicked THAT link and found the perfect pair of shoes, on sale for $37.05. Hello, Visa card, those are my shoes! In minutes, you can find the perfect shoe/cake topper/centerpiece/tablecloth, and order it - wedding planning doesn't get any easier than that!

3. You can search for your favorite vendors and find them on Pinterest, too! Many photographers, florists, venues and officiants are all creating a Pinterest profile to showcase their work. You can get to know their style, and even show them examples of their work that you especially liked. Open communication with your vendor is the best way to ensure your dreams come true!
