Pinterest? Hopefully by now, you have signed up for Pinterest and have started finding inspiration for your next home, the kitchen and even your furry friend. But, how do you pin ideas for your wedding without giving everything away? Well, there are now, shhhh, secret boards. Yep, they just released access to three boards that you can use for anything you don't want your followers to see. So, that means while you have your family helping you with your reception decor, you can now privately plan your bachelorette party, or anything else you'd rather not broadcast to mom and other sets of eyes.
We just checked out some tools that are used to measure Pinterest, and since we've started pinning, our followers have "liked" over 1,000 of our pins, and have "repinned" those pins over 6,000 times. We hope you'll check us out over there, and when you're ready to talk wedding plans, details that you know, could be stealth, let us know. Until then, repin and like away!
One of our most popular bouquets, has been repinned 32 times from our pinboard dedicated to just our bridal bouquets! Here is the link to the pin of the image above: Bridal Bouquet: Hydrangea and Seeded Eucalyptus | Brian Kraft Photography
So, just how do you repin that blue beauty and keep it a secret? Well, here's how you can keep a private board.
- Login to Pinterest. Do your thing. I like to login via Twitter, in case you wondered.
- Scroll down on your boards page and look for the secret boards. Click create.
- Name your board, select the category, and make sure the setting for private is ON.
- Invite co-conspirators, I mean collaborators via email or Pinterest username.
- Click create board and you're done. Your secret board is now set up. Pin away!
You can now invite your wedding vendors, and other confidants in your event design details.
We are also building on a centerpiece pinboard, for example this centerpiece for a wedding at Copper Mountain which is tall-clean-and-simple, yet has some drama going on. The bride and groom rented this piece, and had us come back to retrieve them after the wedding, saving them time and energy.
So, to check out more blogs that we've pinned, go right here. There will be more blogs coming to this board, so it's a good one to watch. I've also put together a venues board, as we're always getting asked about different places to get married, which ones do receptions too, and so on. Everyone wedding is different, and each venue has its own quirks and issues. But, one will be right for you. Which one? Well, decide for yourself, or let us help you pick.
So, whether you're checking out venues, or DIY projects, you'll want to head over to our Pinterest boards to see what's on there. And, the best part now is that you can keep it secret. On Pinterest anyway. You can't guarantee everybody's mouth will keep shut, right? Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for reading!
We keep hearing from our brides and clients that the guys are really getting into contributing towards the wedding. In their own way, of course. While many stare into space while discussing all the different flower options, others jump at the chance to let their style, taste and preferences known. We encourage the brides, sisters, planners and families reading this blog to show the guys the articles we're writing with the Groom in mind.
Click here and you'll be taken to our Groom-er board on our Pinterest page. There you'll see lots of style options for dressing up the guys, and even a few DIY projects that I just had to throw in there. Even if all you get is a good laugh, my job is done. I want to make your destination wedding planning fun, and that includes looking at sometimes hilarious, yet very doable, DIY projects.
If you're planning a winter wedding for next season, then you'll have plenty of time to get the materials to create something spectacular and fun for your bride-to-be to wear around the slopes. Perhaps you both have'em and hire a photographer to do an adventure photo session sometime before the wedding, or even on the day of the wedding. It's up to you. We think it would be a interesting way to make the day that much more fun! Click on the image to go to the pin that links to the article.
And yes, they'll melt in your Han Solo (sorry, had to), but these chocolate Millenium Falcons could be just the way to personalize one of the gatherings. They could be tested out at a weekend grilling party, and then created the week of the wedding to be used at the rehearsal dinner, instead of a groom's cake, or even at the wedding, as favors.
One last piece of advice. Don't let any trend articles scare you away from what you want to have at your wedding. Those are only opinions of what's in and out. Who cares. There are no rules anymore. What's most important is to find your own style, showcase your quirks and have fun with your idiosyncrasies as individuals, and that includes showing to your friends and family that the force will be with you, always.
The following is part 1 of 3 in a Wedding Floral Planning blog series by the Flower Maven, Dina Sanchez of Creative Flowers Inc | Petal and Bean, a 17 year Breckenridge flower shop owner. Dina has created custom bridal bouquets for over 1,000 weddings in her professional career as a florist.
I believe that planning your flowers is one of the most exciting aspects of your wedding. Follow these simple steps to ensure that you are organized, informed and can enjoy the process.
Step 1 - Learn what flowers are in season when you're getting married.
Considering which flowers are in season you are getting married can be an important factor in deciding the overall color scheme.
For example, let's say you love pink and you're planning an autumn wedding. I would then suggest a combination of pink Roses with Autumn Joy Sedum, burgundy Kangaroo Paw or Cockscomb Celeosia, a few berries and the right touch of garden leaves could add just the right touch of texture and color.
Step 2 - Determine what your color palette will be.
What is your favorite color? What colors does he look good in? Ask yourself if you want to incorporate them into the theme of your floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres? Your wedding should reflect your personalities!
Step 3 - Create an collection of images that inspire you.
Start a folder of just images of bouqets and florals from magazines or the web, and you will begin to see a distinct pattern as to what you like or prefer.
P.S. - Look online for sites that feature inspiration boards. It's a great way to see your wedding vision come together. Perhaps we'll create some of our own along the way to show you some examples.
