As in, it’s sucking away all of my time. You may have noticed several images from Pinterest on this here blog. It’s no surprise, really ”” my first wedding pin went up pretty much as soon as I got home from our bike trip, ring on finger.
The problem is that my wedding board is getting larger and larger and larger”¦ and I’m not really doing anything with the things I’m pinning. I’ve made a few Pinterest-inspired projects, yes, namely the yarn jars, and the origami hearts that have yet to find a purpose.
I thought I’d round up some of my favourite pins and explain how I will use them in my planning process, instead of just admiring them as pretty pretty pictures.
While I feel much more confident that it will be warm in Brockville versus September weather all the way up here, I know some people will probably be chilly. We will be looking into tent heaters when the time comes to book rentals (this spring) and will be spreading the word that it’s outdoor so dress accordingly, but I like the idea of providing shawls. I’ve looked into wholesale costs and it’s not too pricey given our tiny guest list.
Not everyone wants to dance, particularly when there are only 50 people there! I’m pretty sure we’ll have some die-hards who are out on the floor all night, aided, of course, by our bar, but I want to provide some options for those who don’t feel like cutting a rug. Board games are pretty cheap and easy and could encourage some inter-friend mingling, which is fine by me!

I’ve been thinking over guestbook ideas and keep coming back to a signed letter. Something like this could be put up in our house, as a nice visual reminder of our wedding day. I think I’m going to paint a large letter for our guests to sign, and have a little book if they want to write anything longer.
That’s just a small sampling of my many, many pins! Now, to stop pinning and start making.
Are you a Pinterest fan? If so, how has it been a part of your wedding planning?
