Stuck on You: Inspiration Vs Reality

It’s showdown time!

In one corner, it’s “The OG:” Original Pin Cushion Inspiration Board!

And battling it out in the other corner is “Reality Bites:” Real Pin Cushion Wedding Board!

First up, OG (created three years ago, in the Mesolithic era, via Style Me Pretty):

Next up, to woo you is Reality Bites (created via Project Wedding with our very own wedding photos):

Now, as a totally partial judge (nobody could get more partial than me, the bride), I would say it’s a WIN. As in, our wedding photos pretty much hit the colors and vibe of our OG inspiration board.

What do you think hive, did the Pin Cushion wedding board live up to the inspiration board? Are you using an inspiration board to guide your wedding decisions?

    The Pin Cushion Wedding Board is even better than your inspiration board! Makes me so excited to see these recaps!

    I love seeing the before and after posts! 😀 I agree with Pony. I like the Pin Cushion edition better than the OG!

    @Miss Archer: You totally should! It’s so fun, plus, for me, it definitely gave me direction when I was making decisions.

    @lisaelanna: @Mrs. Pony: @Miss Coyote: Thanks guys! You’re so sweet! I actually was surprised how close the photos looked too!
