Pinterest is every bride to be's favorite application when it comes to searching for obscure details yet keeping them perfectly organized. Although handy, I must warn you that Pinterest can become distracting, exhausting and in the end a deterrent from being the uber organized planner you want to be. Here are some tips on making the most of Pinterest.
Descriptions: Each image can depict a multitude of details or ideas, some of which may contradict your overall esthetic. Take the time to describe what detail you like so vendors can follow along.
You may be envisioning a loose organic creamy white bouquet but your florist will be perplexed when she sees that you pinned a bouquet of red roses. Simply make a comment describing that you pinned the red roses because you like the ribbon they are tied with.
The more detailed you are the more effective your page will become to vendors who are working off of it.
Take a Break: Lets face it, you probably have been pinning wedding ideas to a secret page for quite some time. Once engaged the rate of pinning will go thru the roof, as it should! You're getting MARRIED! YAY!
Let yourself go wild, but don't be afraid to take a break. Avoid your page for a few weeks and then revaluate what you have pinned to confirm that you like the direction its headed in. Once major vendors have been contracted, such as floral and decor, and your event design is in motion you should stop pinning.
Although the pinning may be done it doesn't mean you are cut off from new ideas. If you find a detail you covet you should save the image/link and email it directly to the vendor it is associated with to ensure its implementation.
Edit: Don't be afraid to delete pins. If you aren't loving something, remove it, otherwise it will become a distraction to you and to vendors. Editing will become easier after you take a brake from your page and return with a fresh set of eyes.
Sub Pages: Go ahead get a bit more organized. I recommend having a over all theme page that captures the general image of your wedding. From there implement sub pages for things such as: floral, hair, gowns, bridesmaid attire, paper products, et cetera.
Max Pins: Keep things focused and to the point. Each page should be less than 50 pins. Think about only have the best of the best on your final page.
In the end, keep your page focused, detailed and true to the overall theme of your day and you'll get much more out of it than just having it be a wasteland for every pretty little idea you saw on the inter web!
