Planning your wedding on Pinterest is not only fun but also keeps your ideas organized. Pinterest is a great way to put all your wedding ideas and must-haves in one location. You can save images to your account from any desktop, tablet or smartphone. In addition, you can follow wedding experts in their field for up-to-date wedding trends. Let’s get started.
If not done so already, you first must create your own account. When creating your account, some important settings include:
- Use your real name or a clever title?
- Do you want people to find your profile through Google?
- Do you want to use your personal picture for your profile?
- Notifications. When do you want to be notified when something happens through your profile?
- Connect your Pinterest profile to other social networks for easy social sharing?
Once you have your account all setup, now let’s get your boards organized. Each wedding topic should be in its own board. For example, create boards for wedding: dresses, ceremony, reception, stationery, flowers, etc. These will just help you get started. You can create new boards as the ideas start flowing. As you create the boards, also consider if you want the boards to be private or not. Boards that are private can only be seen by you.
What are your limits within Pinterest?
- You can have up to 500 boards.
- You can have up to 200,000 image pins.
- You can have up to 100,000 likes.
- You can follow up to 50,000 pinners.
Once you have your profile created and you have your initial boards established, it is time to start pinning. On smartphones and tablets, download the Pinterest App on iTunes or Google Play. For desktop users, download the Pinit button for your browser. Get the browser Pinit button.
Planning Your Wedding On Pinterest
While pinning, be sure to pin your images into their respective topic boards. First start by searching Pinterest itself for wedding ideas. Start by search for weddings to see what is popular and currently being shared. Next, search by specific wedding topics for your particular theme. For example, if you want to have a country rustic wedding, then search for country wedding or rustic wedding. A good idea when pinning is to put your thoughts or notes right into the pin description for future reference.
Next, go to popular wedding themed websites. Many wedding sites offer images of real weddings. These weddings are great to decide what you want to have for your wedding. Examples include real weddings posted on APracticalWedding and WeddingWire.
Now you are all set. Pin images as you see them and delete them as you narrow down.
