How to Create a Secret Board on Pinterest and Keep Your Wedding Details Private

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.

    1. Login to Pinterest.  Do your thing.  I like to login via Twitter, in case you wondered.
    2. Scroll down on your boards page and look for the secret boards.  Click create.
    3. Name your board, select the category, and make sure the setting for private is ON.
    4. Invite co-conspirators, I mean collaborators via email or Pinterest username.
    5. 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!
