The first thing I did when I got engaged?? Headed over to pinterest and started pinning my little heart out! I was overwhelmed as I sifted through pin after pin of the big details (venues) to every small inch (how to arrange utensils). I would see something, and think "OMG! I HAVE to do that!" but 5 minutes later find a pin of the same thing, but arranged or styled differently and automatically change my mind!
Don't get me wrong, Pinterest is one of the greatest things ever created! I came across so many cute details to include in my wedding that I would have never thought up were it not for Pinterest. However, Pinterest can have a dark side. My mind was going a million different ways with all of the different options that it was stressing me out! I had to remind myself to take a step back and reevaluate.
If I had to give you any advice, when it comes to Pinterest remember that it's your day! Pin your heart out and go crazy with pinspiration, but remember that your wedding is ultimately a day of sharing you and your future hubby's love. People are not going to care if you pin-inspired craft doesn't turn out exactly like the pin on your pin board! It's a reflection of you and your special person's love and THAT will be ultimately what they take away and remember!
With that being said, check out a few of my favorite pins that (loosely) inspired my wedding! And no, I still haven't perfected my perfect chalkboard writing for my signs...but hey, that's okay!
