Pinterest is an invaluable tool for brides as it’s a great way to communicate – here are some tips:
A pin starts with an image, for example a wedding dress you like, which you add to Pinterest. You can add a pin from other Pinterest sites, websites using the Pin It bookmarklet or upload an image right from your computer. Any pin on Pinterest can be repinned.
A board is where you organize your pins by topic, for example Wedding Dress, Wedding Venue, Wedding Ideas, Wedding Flowers, Wedding Cake. You can pin ideas for your various boards which can be secret or public, and you can invite other people to pin with you, for example photos of wedding dresses they like.
When you follow someone, their pins show up in your Pinterest home feed. You can follow all of someone’s boards or just the ones you like best and there a huge range of wedding themed boards, which have great ideas which you add to yours.
