A Bride's Favorite Online tool

Welcome, Lisa, a guest blogger today.  Here are her thoughts about her favorite online site.

Ok, I admit it, I am addicted to Pinterest!
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard that allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
People use pinboards to plan their weddings (my favorite idea!), decorate their homes, and share their fashion wish lists.
As someone who has always been a fan of “inspiration boards,” I am loving the ease of using Pinterest.
Inspiration boards required actual clipping, gluing, and labeling of various items onto a board or piece of paper. While incredibly fun and useful for creating an image or developing a concept, storing and revising the boards was always impractical.
Pinterest simply requires the user to register, install a “Pin It” button, and start pinning!
Boards are labeled and saved with ease, and users can also look through images pinned by other users.
As you may have guessed, this is an amazing tool for collecting ideas for a wedding. I created a sample wedding pinboard called “My Big Fat Fictional Wedding”. I decided that the color scheme for my grand event would be vibrant orange and hot pink.
I then searched under various categories to find elements which could be used for my wedding, such as invitations, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, table linens, cakes , and shoes. I collected the images and pinned them at my leisure, a few at a time.
The process was exciting because you could watch how elements worked together to create the overall look for the event. When I changed my mind about a flower girl dress, I could easily delete it and replace the image with a different one.
The overall process is so much fun, and very little effort is involved because the “Pin It” button is installed and always accessible.
There you have it. Enjoy this option when wanting to save ideas during your planning of your wedding.  for further ideas or assistnce call us at FAO.  We would love to be part of your special day!
Happy Planning!
