Pinterest For Wedding Planners

Pinterest is all the rage these days. It’s quickly become a part of our daily vocabulary, and has changed the way we do a lot of things. We find ourselves saying “Hey, I think I saw that on Pinterest!” more and more, and it’s now our one-stop shop for recipe, DIY, décor, event, style and travel inspiration.

As a wedding planner myself, I’ve watched as the site has quickly made itself an invaluable resource to professionals in the event industry. And for good reason. Aside from finding inspiration there, I find it’s also an incredible way to connect with my clients.

Gone are the days of magazine clippings. A picture might paint a thousand words, but a Pinterest board filled with a bride’s wedding inspiration can save a thousand words. It’s now easier than ever to communicate concepts, which makes the whole wedding planning process much more efficient.

Now, one of the first things I do with my new clients is create a secret pin board. In the past this would have been a physical folder full of magazine clippings; oh how the times have changed!

My only tip? Recommend to the bride that she not look at Pinterest starting at least one month from the wedding. Pinterest bombards us with new and inspiring images every day, which makes it so easy to second guess those table centerpieces we were so sure of a few months before. I promise, getting your bride to commit to banning Pinterest for that last month will save you both a lot of hair pulling stress!

The possibilities are endless, so let the pinning begin!
