Days are best spent lounging in yoga pants, daydreaming about blissful moments to come and pinning to your Pinterest wedding board. Let’s be honest, the art of pinning is a guilty pleasure and surely enough the idea of virtually planning your wedding is more appealing than actually doing it. After all, that’s what a wedding planner is for, right? Well, we’re here to give you the inside scoop on the love/hate relationship your wedding planner has with your favorite social app.
Pictures translate what you can’t put into words and that’s why we appreciate a good pin every now and then (or five seconds if we can help it)! Your wedding board is likely filled with must have items that portray the general ambiance for your wedding. Nevertheless, there are always those brides that get swept away in the Pinterest madness and replication ends up being their goal. As much as your wedding planner would love to give you everything your heart desires, those elaborate pins have led you astray, and your planner is left picking up the pieces.
By utilizing Pinterest as a guideline rather than an ultimatum you’re sure to come out with similar results, just more practical! With Pinterest’s primary purpose being to share pin worthy images the majority of what you see are results of styled-shoots where props are perfectly posed. The elaborate floral arch adorned with peonies and expensive drape that you’ve had your eye on is either out of season or out of your budget. Therefore, your wedding planner takes on the role of a filter between you and your Pinterest board, sifting through images and decoding what you love and what you can do without. When all the fluff is set aside a more realistic vision emerges, which is better suited for your wedding reality.
Swiping down to refresh your Pinterest feed for the latest finds is your newfound addiction. Everyday new images are uploaded to Pinterest and with every new pin is another opportunity for you to change your mind! Sure, it’s great to stay up to date on the latest trends, but not at the expense of your planning progress. Pinterest can be a source of indecisiveness, so once you’ve found your vibe, ditch the board and take a load off. Your planner has it under control!
