Find out how to use the best moodboard tool around.
We bet you know what Pinterest is all about.
But did you know that if you want to be a great wedding organiser, this is going to turn into your favourite tool ever?
You’re probably already using it to get interiors inspiration or recipe ideas. You might even have a secret wedding board on there before you’re even engaged (we won’t judge!)
Pinterest is part of our daily lives and it’s a really handy tool if you want to be the ultimate wedding organiser. So we want to help you use it to its full capacity. This is how you can do it.
When you get engaged it’s one of the happiest times of your lives. Soon enough though, you’ll realise that you’ve got this whole wedding to plan and it can feel overwhelming.
Maybe you’ve been dreaming about your big day as a little girl, or maybe you’re only just thinking about it now. But when you start considering how much you need to decide and how much personal detail you can bring, it’s actually really exciting.
You’ll become obsessed with every single idea you come across. So how do you keep track of your favourites? That’s where Pinterest comes in. If you like something you see, pin it. Simple.
You don’t have to keep a folder of notes, you don’t have to save hundreds of pictures to your computer, and you don’t have to spend money unnecessarily. You can keep all your inspiration on Pinterest so you know the theme and style you’re going for.
Not sure of your colour scheme? Pin different ones and decide later. Don’t worry about how much you pin – this is where you’re just bringing your ideas together.
What’s also useful to remember is that most images on Pinterest link back to the place it came from. For instance, if you see the bouquet of your dreams, you can click on the image and it will take you to the website of the florist who created it.
Once you’ve spent some time figuring out the foundations of your wedding, including season, venue and style, you can start to get more specific.
Now it’s time to create another Pinterest board for your absolute favourite pictures from the previous boards you created. This will show you how each element of your wedding will flow together (it also works as a moodboard which is great to show potential suppliers). Make this a secret board so no one gets to see the final look you’re going for.
Another great feature of Pinterest is that you can invite people to pin to your boards. So let’s say you have a wedding planner or a really involved mum or bridesmaid. They can work with you on Pinterest to bring your vision to life.
You can invite them to view your boards or pin to them. Either way, they’re bound to come up with some wonderful ideas.
This is also the time where you can start looking for specifc things. Let’s say you know you want to have peonies in your bouquet. You can make sure you search for “peony wedding bouquets” or something similar, so all the relevant searches appear.
We have a point here, we promise.
Every bride gets to the stage where they become completely overwhelmed with wedding planning. You may have too many ideas or start to doubt the choices you’ve made. The best thing you can do is take a step back and not think about it for a while.
Get on with your day to day life. Enjoy being engaged. And when you feel it’s the right time, come back and take a look at your Pinterest boards again. Everything will be there waiting for you.

Well done, Little Miss Wedding Organiser. We know you’ll plan the wedding of your dreams.
