Remember the episode of F*R*I*E*N*D*S where Monica reveals her “wedding binder” – the huge, detailed book filled with magazine clippings and photos of everything from flowers to food? Can you IMAGINE having to compile something like that today, without Pinterest? The horror! (Actually, we think it would be kind of fun. Tabs! Labels! Sparkly pens!) The beauty of Pinterest need not be explained – it truly is an amazing site and, as event planners, we rely on it heavily!
The challenge in marrying (pun intended) your Pinterest-y visions with what works in your chosen venue, your partner’s ideals, your family’s opinion(s) and the execution of all of your ideas that tends to be overwhelming and daunting, which is, of course, where we come in! As you work with your creative wedding planners or wedding stylists, it’s important to remember that, while all of the ideas on Pinterest look amazing on your “Dream Wedding” pinboard, your big day is a culmination of so many other variables and your stylist can help you to create a seamless and cohesive aesthetic in your particular venue.
It’s also very easy to get completely overwhelmed by the endless number of options out there. Its ok – in fact, it’s recommended! – to step away from the computer every once in a while. We promise, it will be waiting for you once you’ve taken a well-deserved breather from all of the inspiration!
We can all agree that planning a wedding would not be nearly as fun without Pinterest, just remember to keep yourself grounded in the fact that you’ll be living your wedding day, and not just gazing at it onscreen in the wee hours of the morning! We can help you find that happy medium between Pinterest-perfection and beautiful reality!
