Aahhh.... Pinterest. I've been avoiding you because I know I will love you. I did the same with Photoshop and when I finally gave in - I did it with full abandon! I'm an "all in" kind of gal.
I've heard brides hemming and hawing about Pinterest and Etsy a lot recently. Both are a blessing and a curse. They can truly inspire you .... or truly overwhelm you. I think it's important to strike a fine balance between what is doable and what is actually FUN TO DO!
A recent wedding I officiated, Becky & Derek's wedding at the Barr Mansion, achieved just that: It was beautiful, luxe, thoughful ... but not obnoxiously over-designed. They went with a 20's Deco theme with an interesting palette of mint, gray & gold. Lots of vintage rhinestones strewn here and there. Really well done! Bravo -
Some of my photos to follow. And, Becky has been kind enough to let me post her Pinterest boards! Here's her wedding one for inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/bexq/10-25-13-ideas-inspiration/
And, what I find even more interesting, is the following board she created for her bridesmaids: http://www.pinterest.com/bexq/brides-attendants/. What a smart way to retain some control over the look of your ladies, but let them have a hand in, and be comfortable with, the final outcome. I can guarantee that these ladies will wear these sassy Gatsby dresses again!
