PLE using Pinterest.com

Pinterest.com is one of the newest growing social media websites where people share ideas, hobbies, tutorials, and much more. There is a specific Wedding and Events section of the website where people share everything from their pictures of their dress, their centerpieces, or even bridal party gifts. I love Pinterest because it acts as a digital magazine where you can digitally save the pages you want all in one organized place. Any idea that you love can quickly be pinned to your page to help with the planning of every aspect of your wedding! At Platinum Lining Events, we use Pinterest.com to connect with our brides and share creative ideas. There is a feature where you may share a board with someone else and all members may add ideas. Once a bride establishes a theme or color scheme, I create the board and invite them to share their inspiration allowing both the planner and bride to see what each had in mind. The website also features private boards so only people you choose can see what is being pinned to that board. Pinterest gives me a chance to have a collaborative space with my brides to help put together the look and feeling of their wedding.? I also have many other boards to give brides inspiration and an idea of what they might want on their wedding day. Things such as dresses, cakes, centerpieces, hairstyles, and grooms fashion are all pinned on our page. Visit our site to get inspiration:...

Mother nature is very unpredictable and you want to make sure that everything goes smoothly and as planned. When you chose your venue, make sure they have an indoor area large enough to hold your guests if something should happen. The venue should be prepared to move everything indoors so they are not caught off guard that day.  If an indoor space is not an option, consider ordering a tent ahead of time and have it on stand-by.  You may have to put a depoist down and if you don’t use the tent you may lose the money, but if it does rain you will have the peace of mind that your wedding will still continue. Do not wait until the last minute to schedule a tent because they may not have one available at the last minute.  Photo from Weddingbee.com If you decide to relocate your wedding because of the rain make sure that you call your florist, catering company, and DJ to tell them of this change. They may have to...
