Pinterest is a visual bookmarking site and the go-to internet tool for couples planning a wedding and seeking inspiration. Read on for tips on how to use Pinterest as you plan your wedding.

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a website that offers free image-based wish list style pin-boards to share, use and peruse. Since 2009, Pinterest has allowed individuals to create visual boards filled with content uploaded and saved from across the internet. Site functions include image uploading, pins and boards, bookmarklets, follow access and a home feed.

How To Use

The first thing you will need to do is join Pinterest by signing-up and creating a free account. Afterwards, you may begin pinning images or videos using the Pin It bookmarklet tool or uploading from your computer.

If you see images of pins on the site that you may like to follow, select the name of the person or board from your home feed or search box.

Create Boards

Create a cross section of boards before you begin, taking the time for preplanning helps keep your pins organized. Include wedding related topics such as invitations, venues, decorations, themes, colors, bridal gowns, wedding party attire, music, shoes, hairstyles, accessories, vows, reception ideas, menus, cakes, budget tips, floral designs, rehearsal dinner, photography/videography, gift registry and honeymoons.

Share and Communicate

Invite your friend and families to view your boards; ask them to make comments on your selections. Share your boards with wedding planners or wedding vendors to help them envision and create your dream wedding.

Follow Wedding Experts

Add wedding experts to your Follow list. Find them by visiting your favorite wedding websites and clicking on the Pin It icon or search the boards on Pinterest for professionals. Pinterest wedding specialists offer a variety of creative ideas to inspire your wedding.

Etiquette Guidelines  

Follow the Pinterest etiquette guidelines for an optimum experience. Please be respectful and practice kindness when making posts or comments. Be your authentic self, pin items that reflect who you and your fiance are as a couple in regards to personal taste and preferences for your wedding planning.

Give credit, whenever possible link back to original boards and leave polite messages.
