Have you heard of Pinterest? Ha, I’m only kidding. Pinterest has revolutionized Wedding Planning in so many ways, but the question is, how do you use it in a way that you don’t spend every hour obsessing about what new trend you can incorporate into your wedding? Don’t get me wrong, my Pinterest page is anything but sparse, but I think there are some ways that you can utilize this site in a way that helps you but doesn’t drive you crazy.
#1: Stick to your Wedding Theme
If you are having an indoor wedding, don’t get stuck looking at all the beach wedding ideas that you might come across. It’s great to get ideas if you aren’t set on anything yet, but if you already know your theme (Classy, Modern, Traditional, Shabby Chic) then stick to searching for those ideas.
#2 Avoid Browsing the Wedding Section
Try to avoid just browsing and use the search bar. This will help you only look for the ideas that you need, instead of spending hours looking at every dream wedding you could come across. If you need lighting ideas, then search for those instead of every possible wedding idea there is.
#3 Split up your Boards
They have different boards for a reason and don’t be afraid to use them! Instead of having one Wedding Board, do an Invitation Board, Favors Board, Lighting Board and so on)
#4 Use Secret Boards
Recently, Pinterest just started doing Secret Boards! You can use these for the ideas you may not want everyone to know about or outside voices telling you about what they did for their wedding.
#5 Follow Less People/Businesses
Be picky about who you follow on Pinterest, especially if they don’t fit with the theme of your wedding. You can always follow more people after the wedding is over!
Try not to let this site overwhelm you, instead, try to use it to your advantage for a wedding that is exactly what you want it to be! Happy Pinning and Happy Wedding Planning! If you want to check out the rest of the Sweet Pea Event Planners Pinterest Pages, check them out below!
