What is Pinterest?

Have you heard a social media phenomenon called Pinterest? If you have, you are probably too busy pinning to bother with this post. But if you haven’t, let me tell you what it is.

Pinterest is pinboard for online photos. If you like tearing photos from your favorite magazines to add them to a board or folder, then you will love Pinterest. With Pinterest, you can create as many Boards as you like, and pin photos from the web to a particular Pinboard. For example, I’ve created different pinboards like Engagement Fashion with outfit ideas for my brides’ engagement sessions. Wedding Ideas, where I let my imagination fly and pin some gorgeous wedding details. Fashion for Him, my grooms also ask for suggestions for their engagements, and actually this board has turned to be more popular than I expected. And my ultimate Christmas wish list, which I cleverly named Fashion.

I think Pinterest is a Bride’s best friend because you can create inspiration boards for all things wedding. Imagine a board for “My Wedding” “Wedding dresses I love” “Shoes to die for.” Then next time you are browsing those addictive wedding blogs and see something you like, you can Pin it to any of your boards, and voila, you have yourself an inspiration board. Pinterest also allows you to add collaborators to your boards, so you can ask your bridesmaids to Pin their favorite outfits to “Unique Bridesmaid’s dresses.”

Another great feature is the option to follow people or boards you like. If you see something you like, you can simply re-pin to your boards.

You’re sold? Well, before you make dig in, let me warn you, Pinterest is addictive, and once you try it, you will be hooked! I created my account, and it was love at first sight.

You need an invitation to join Pinterest, or you can ask to be added to your waiting list, so if you want an invitation, please be sure to leave your email address on the comment section, and I will be glad to add you!!

Let the pinning begin!!

How to be on time to your wedding?

how to be on time to your wedding ceremonyThere seems to be a new trend developing in modern weddings: Being late. This year, 80% of our weddings have started late, which has me thinking. Is there a new wedding etiquette that I’m not aware of. Or is there a wedding reality TV show laying out that it’s OK for the bride to be late. The answer is simpler.

Since we are in a DIY era, brides, who are not hiring wedding planners, are preparing out their own wedding timelines. And when creating their timeline, brides are not factoring things that are part of a wedding day, but not part of the ritual, like greetings, bustling, retouching, walking and the unexpected; in some cases, brides are not adding traffic to the equation, and if it normally takes them fifteen minutes to go from their house or hotel to the ceremony site, they are only factoring fifteen minutes.

The result is brides being consistently late.

Consequences of Being Late
A wedding timeline is like the mechanism that makes a clock work, if you offset one thing, it will offset the rest. Since the end time is the only thing that will not change, by adding time to certain parts of the day; you are taking time away from other parts.READ MORE
