Pinterest is a double edged sword, to say the least. It has pros and cons, and we’ve talked before about using it to plan your wedding. We all know everyone loves going Pinterest crazy, especially on those lazy weekend afternoons or scrolling to waste time when you’re suppose to be working (shh, we won’t tell!). So how do you make sure you’re not falling down the rabbit hole and actually being productive when using Pinterest as a planning tool? Easily!
-Keep it brief. Don’t spend too much time scrolling. We know, we know. Easier said than done. Keep is specific and brief if you’re looking for something on Pinterest. It’s kind of like dress shopping– the more you look, the more you’ll second guess.
-Keep it concise and culled. Every few weeks, go through your Pinterest board and delete anything that doesn’t follow the majority theme and aesthetic. You might love that DIY fairy light centerpiece, but if it doesn’t fit the 80 other super glam pins, get rid of it. Keep your board cohesive!
-Think outside the Pinterest box! You know how annoying it can be to keep coming across the same pins again and again. If you find yourself hitting a block, look for inspiration in other amazing areas, like Aisle Society or good old fashioned magazines!
-Keep your expectations realistic. That pin that’s been repined 8,000 times might be gorgeous, but hand crafting 22 centerpieces with out of season flowers might not be realistic for your own wedding. Keep your expectations realistic, and pin accordingly!
