Well Isn’t That Pinteresting

What’s a newly engaged girl to do? Bombard Pinterest, obviously!

Wait, rewind. Who am I kidding? I had a wedding board BEFORE I was engaged. (Don’t we all?) But having the board was different now, just like the idea of the proposal became more real once I knew the ring was purchased.

My Pinterest wedding board quickly grew in size, doubled, tripled, quadrupled. So much, that I needed to make my one board into different categorized boards. (In case you are wondering, I separated the pins into these categories: General, Planning, Bridal Party, Parties, Printed/Signage, Decor/Flowers, Ceremony, Reception, Technology, Details, Pop Inspiration, Honeymoon. I also made a Groom Not Welcome board to which I pinned dress and hairstyles and made sure Mr. K isn’t following that board.)

Some of my first pieces of inspiration were:

Different color jewel tone dresses? Yes, please! // Source: Belle the Magazine

I love the gray suits and white sneakers – dressed up but with a flair of casual. // Source: Utah Bride Blog

A child at heart, I have always loved rainbow sprinkles. Love the fun and whimsy they can add to a wedding! // Source: StoryBoardWedding

Ampersands have a special place in my heart thanks to my love affair with the English language. // Source: Kimberly Jarman Photography

Mr. PB and I are both big sports fans so I definitely love the idea of adding jersey shirts and other sports type things into the wedding mix. // Source: Devon J

I love giving gifts so what better way to ask my ‘maids than with a box full of goodies. // Source: Rinse.Repeat.

Did you find your early inspiration from Pinterest? Anyone else have a wedding board (or multiple boards) before they were engaged?
