So you have lots of awesome ideas for your wedding. 

You have a Pinterest board full of great ideas that you can’t wait to start working on.

Suddenly your phone buzzes. It’s your sister. She saw your latest pin, and her boyfriend’s sister’s friend made one just like it, and she’s sure that the boyfriend’s sister’s friend wouldn’t mind making more for a small fee.

Wait, now your aunt just emailed you about five different pins (that you added months ago in the early stages of planning) and she’s telling you exactly how much each one will cost according to her local high-end craft store. She wants to make them all for you, and then bring them with her. On the day of the wedding. When she flies in from New Jersey.

Sound familiar?

Here’s a tip from Elegant Whims:

Make your wedding Pinterest board a secret one. Only allow the people you want to see it, see it. This way, no one is making suggestions they shouldn’t be making, and being helpful in ways that aren’t helpful.

Now that you have your own space that you can create with, here is what we suggest:

1.) Start with your venue.

You can’t create an atmosphere without a space.

2.) Decide on a color scheme.

Keep it original, and keep it under 4 colors.

3.) Use Pinterest as a tool, not a Bible.

Don’t just duplicate something just to duplicate it. Take an idea and let it spark your creativity to make it your own. Put your own twist on them, and who knows? You may end up creating the latest Pinterest Wedding Trend!
