Love it or hate Pinterest is BIG. The wedding world and brides in particular love its ability to bring together your dream day in all its pictorial glory. Some people say Pinterest just sets you up for disappointment, aspiring for things that are not possible or would be extremely expensive or time consuming to achieve.
The collection of images below is the board I created when i was redesigning our brand and was a useful tool for conveying my aspirations to my graphic designer.
Of course you have to be realistic. For example getting carried away pinning lots of images from a photographer you did a wedding in beautiful sunshine in July running through fields with sun streaming through the tree branches will not work on a slightly dull November day when you get married at 3pm. See what I mean?
Our Sunshine and Doves board – One of our favorite color schemes
Personally I LOVE Pinterest, The people I follow inspire me every day. From window displays to floral arrangements, a new bathroom suite to some outdoor furniture, the world of possibilities out there excites me. We use it to plan our styled photo shoots, changes to our window displays, and of course to highlight themes and colour schemes to our brides. We also have a board for each of our designers to show the collections we carry in store and my team and I even use it to plan the things we need to buy, what are we missing in the shop?
