LET'S TALK interest was founded in 2010 and at first, no one had a clue what Pinterest was, how to use it, what it was good for... By just 2011, however, it took off and every one was "pinning" away. And according to recent studies, 70% percent of women with a Pinterest account have a Wedding Board. Pinterest is indeed pretty awesome - a great tool for cras, inspiration, and, of course, weddings. It's even hard to believe brides actually used to choose their wedding details without Pinterest! Now with tons of inspiration easily accessible on the Internet, sometimes it can create tons of pressure for brides-to-be's, leaving them feeling like they HAVE to have that "Pinterest wedding." Pinterest can become a love/hate relationship! I will be the first to tell you: I am obsessed with pinning anything and everything that catches my eye; I sometimes can't stop myself ! When designing your wedding, Pinterest can start to become overwhelming. At Simply Gorgeous Events by Lara-Jill, I use these steps to help my brides use Pinterest to create the wedding of their dreams, an event uniquely theirs, and not that "Pinterest wedding." Start Fresh. We all know you have had that wedding board with over 1,000 pins before you even got engaged, but now, start fresh with a secret Pinterest board. I would suggest only inviting your wedding planner and/ or designer to share your board. Too many people getting involved can cause you to want to please every one, but then you forget about yourself. Callie Lindsey Photography
