Plan your Wedding on Pinterest

If I had known about Pinterest before my wedding, I would have been a much more organized bride. Regardless, I have since discovered it and I think it's absolute genius!

Brides (and grooms), there's no longer a need to bookmark then file every website page with an idea you want to revisit. You may not even need to cut pages out of wedding magazines and store them in an accordion folder. Pinterest will make your life so much easier. 

If you're new to Pinterest, read Samantha Murphy's post (below) and see her video blog on 7 Pinterest tips.

If you’re planning a wedding and knee-deep in collecting ideas for the perfect dress, hairstyle and invitations, there’s a good chance you’re already familiar with Pinterest.
The two-year-old social bookmarking site — which allows users to collect and share things they like on the Internet — is becoming a hotbed for the wedding industry. Not only are Pinterest users adding images to their virtual pinboards for inspiration to help plan their big day, but some are collecting ideas for the future and aren’t even engaged.
Either way, Pinterest is an easy way to make planning a wedding more manageable. It’s like ripping the pages out of wedding magazines and taping them to your bulletin board — but digitally. Even better, each picture is typically linked to a site where you can buy the styles you want, learn DIY crafting tips and become informed about the latest trends. Friends and other Pinterest followers can also leave comments and feedback to make the whole planning process more interactive.
To make the most of the site, here are simple and effective ways to use Pinterest for wedding planning — from which boards to create and who to follow to leveraging your findings while shopping in stores.
