Pinterest: The riskiest way to productively organize your life.
Why do I say risky, you ask?
How many times have you caught yourself clicking on every pin posted to a random board while creating your own? My point exactly. I rest my case.
Nevertheless, if you’re brave (and strong-willed) enough to take on the challenge, utilizing Pinterest to map out your dreams, hobbies, and what have you can really be beneficial.
Let’s take the number one event in the lives of women: Their wedding day.
You’ve been dreaming about it since you were a little girl. You’ve already picked out your dress. The color scheme is set. Now, you’ve finally found your husband or wife. Or not. Maybe you’re still kissing frogs. Either way you put it, every woman needs a wedding board on Pinterest.
Sometimes we think we know what we want until it actually comes down to choosing what we want. With all the choices available in the bridal world, it can get overwhelming!
From the dresses to the invitations to the place settings to the color scheme, who knew there were so many variations and styles of basically the same thing? Leisurely going through pins will help you pick out what you want. Stumped on the type of theme you want for your wedding? Pinterest is filled with pins to inspire you and help you determine which works best for your style.
Think of your wedding board as your blueprint. Creating a board allows you to not only show your wedding planner and others exactly what you what, but it also gives you an idea of what you’re willing to compromise on. We all can’t get a fountain filled with elegant white swans. Maybe that pin you saw of a swan ice sculpture will do?
Now that you’ve got your Pinterest skills down pat from creating your wedding board, why not try to apply that same board to every other aspect of your wedding? Gardening pins are good for deciding flowers, crafts are good for selecting centerpieces and the smaller details.
Well Ladies, plan away!
As Winston Churchill once said, “He who fails to plan is planning to fail”.
