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. (Didn’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 so 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 dresses and hairstyles and made sure Mr. K wasn’t following that board.)
Some of my first pieces of inspiration were:

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