Start a Vision Board

Your Pinterest wedding planning journey gets to be fun, so create a vision board! This board will serve as your central hub of inspiration, encapsulating the overall theme and aesthetic of your wedding. Here’s how to get started:

  • Set Up Your Board: Create a dedicated board titled “Wedding Vision” or something similar.
  • Gather Inspiration: Pin everything that catches your eye, from color schemes and decor to dress styles and floral arrangements. Don’t worry about being too specific at this stage; the goal is to capture your overall vision so you can share it with your hired wedding professionals.
  • Refine Your Style: This is where you hired wedding professionals come in. They will help you to see different patterns that are emerging, such as rustic themes, vintage elegance, or modern minimalism. Use this to narrow down your vision.

Break Down the Details

Once your vision board is brimming with ideas (and trust us, it won’t take long to get there), it’s time to get organized. Create separate boards for each aspect of your wedding. Here are some important categories to consider:

  • Venue: Gather ideas for location for both your ceremony and reception. Once you get your inspiration, you can start looking at what indoor or outdoor wedding venue options are available where you want to get married.
  • Dress and Attire: Pin wedding dress styles, bridesmaid dresses, groom and groomsmen attire, and accessories that you like. This might inspire what color schemes and overall theme you are looking to go for .
  • Decorations: Collect ideas for centerpieces, table settings, ceremony backdrops, and lighting. This will also help you to distill what you want your wedding theme to feel like.
  • Floral Arrangements: Who doesn’t love wedding flowers?! With so many lovely options, it can be hard to decide. Pin bouquets and reception flowers that catch your eye.
  • Food and Drink: What kind of catering do you want? A charcuterie board for your guests to mingle over? Or a local farm-to-table wedding caterer? Explore all the catering options, from signature cocktails, cake designs, and dessert tables.
  • Music and Entertainment: Maybe you want a traditional band to play for your wedding, or maybe you want a DJ. Maybe you even want both! Pin your ideas, playlists, and fun activities like photo booths.
