One of the first things couples do post-engagement is go down a Pinterest rabbit hole collecting ideas for a Wedding vision board to start their planning and bring it all to life. We say rabbit hole because that's exactly how Pinterest works. One pin leads to another, to another, to another. Do not get us wrong. WE LOVE PINTEREST! It is perfect for collecting ideas and finding what colors, textures, designs, locations etc all resonate with you for your Wedding. From the ceremony to tablescapes, favors and thank you notes, you can find ideas for everything! It's also a great tool to collect you ideas to share with your florist, planner and photographer. In our line of work, we have become very well-versed in Pinterest and love working with clients on putting together their perfect Wedding Vision Board through Pinterest. Here are some ideas for templates on how to keep your thoughts organized and how to avoid getting overwhelmed with Pinterest.
Use the Sections Feature
Pinterest recently added the opportunity to add sections to your Pinterest board. This has been extremely helpful and avoids the need to create 15 different boards for your Wedding. Before you start pinning, we recommend following a template for your vision board and setting up sections:
Vibe - Use this section to pin photos of overall atmosphere photos. Room decor, fun photo ops you like, words to describe it, color palettes, themes, etc.
Ceremony - Use this section to pin photos of ceremony decor ideas, setup ideas, vow ideas, traditions etc.
Cocktail Hour - Use this section to pin photos for all the little details that people will discover at cocktail hour! Escort cards, gift table, photos, specialty cocktails etc.
Tablescape - Use this section to pin photos of centerpieces, table layouts, menu cards, table numbers etc that you like!
Stationary - Use this section to pin photos of invitations, save the dates, thank you cards, and pieces you'll be sending to your guests.
Personal Ideas - Use this section to pin photos of unique details that reflect you and your fiance. Tradition ideas, special touches, photos you want to have together, etc.
Bridal Party - Use this section to pin photos of bridal party attire. Bridesmaid dresses, suits, shoes, etc - also photo ideas you like of everyone together
