I love Pinterest. I really, really do. But from the moment brides get engaged we start pinning anything that slightly makes us smile until your Wedding board can get a little nutty looking. This is why I organized all our final picks for DIY projects on Trello.
Arrange your boards by area/part of the wedding
This worked really well because it helped with phase 2: organizing the supplies. It also helped me visualize how elements would look all together.
Save a few photo options for each idea
Don’t go crazy, but at least have a couple options so in case you’re shopping for a specific type of tray or twine and not having much luck, you can see how another option might look. With this table for example I knew Brooklands Farm had the wooden log slices for desserts, but I wanted to see what accessories I could find to create a cohesive look. Hence, the three different photo ideas.
Make your shopping lists in the cards
A great way to keep track of what you need especially if there’s something you’ve forgotten at the last minute. We bought items like olives and spreads ahead of time and the fresh items shortly before the wedding day.
Let the team help out
An easy way to answer the “what can I help with?” question you will receive throughout wedding planning: create a “Need to Find” column. Perfect for items you want to borrow from family or items you want to purchase that you can’t find in your area, create some lists and see if anyone can help. Remember to tag family members/wedding party members so they get a notification.
