In the â€œinformation ageâ€ there are so many tools that make planning a wedding ” target=”_blank”>planning a wedding (or any event for that matter) light years easier than even 5 years ago. You will almost always find the vendors you like on Facebook, Twitter and even the lovely gem that is Pinterest. You should always try to â€˜Likeâ€™ or â€˜Followâ€™ them so that you can see new pictures from their most recent events and even special promotions that they may be running for their fans. My specific topic today, though, is Pinterest and what it has done to help me already.
A couple of weeks ago I spoke with Chef William Neal of Affairs to Remember, an Atlanta staple in catering and event design. During our in-depth conversation he asked the loaded questionâ€¦ â€œDo you have an idea board set up?â€ What was my answer? Honestly it was this, I have an account with some ideas, but give me a few days and Iâ€™ll send you the link. So I created one and sent it to him. He is now following my inspiration board.
This is a HUGE load off of my shoulders. For one simple reason. TIME. I can pin ideas 24 hours a day (not that I would, I like my sleep) and my followers/vendors will see my new ideas. This means no more printing out ideas and keeping a big messy binder. If there is something in particular i would like someone to see, I can email a link to them with no hassle. No more wasting money on printer cartridges, letâ€™s face itâ€¦ ink isnâ€™t cheap anymore . . .
