Keep Calm and Consult Pinterest

Posted July 31, 2015

“I get by with a little help from my friends…” we’ve all heard that old well loved tune, and we can all probably relate to it from time to time! In the wedding world, we, too, get by with help from friends—one of our (usually) best friends being Pinterest. Love it or hate it, Pinterest has become a go-to for brides everywhere planning their event. It’s a great resource for pulling ideas and inspiration together. As wedding facilitators, we consider it part of our job to stay tuned to the latest and greatest in wedding trends. Another part of that job is to find organized, easy-to-navigate ways to pass on our fun finds to YOU, our existing and potential clients! Voila: Pinterest Boards!

Upstate I Do has a long standing Pinterest account, where our in office team pin things we love and are inspired by regularly. One of the main purposes of our account has been mostly to serve as a general “lookbook” to preview our style. Recently, as part of our rebrand, we have completely updated and expanded our collection of boards. They are now totally revamped, curated, and carefully constructed to provide maximum material for inspiration for brides, with minimal effort spent sifting and searching. One of our primary goals is to provide wedding inspiration to any bride, no matter what style or wedding budget she may have.

Our collection of almost 50 boards are now sorted into specific topics. These topics have been narrowed down even further into specialized categories. We have gathered ideas on everything from DIY personal touches, to pre-wedding workouts, to seasonal wedding themes. We have a collection of location specific pins featuring regional wedding venues we love in our area. There are also boards of photos from real weddings I Do has been part of, which is a fantastic way to see some creative ideas in action in real life.

Our new website showcases a special “Pinterest” section. Scroll down to the bottom of the main page, just above the blog section, where you will find a collection of our most recent pins; they auto-populate to our website in real time as we pin them, bringing you the most fresh and recent ideas as we discover them. You can also pin directly from that feed on the website! As long as you are logged into Pinterest somewhere on your computer, you can click on any of the images and direct pin to one of your boards—or click “See what we are pinning” and go to all our boards for more exploration! Start following us today and make sure you are up to date on all our latest finds! Don’t wait! Go ahead and follow us at “Upstate I Do Weddings”. Happy pinning and planning!
