Create Your Boards

After you’ve joined Pinterest, you need to create a few boards.  Look at this like your bookmarks for your web browser.  For planning your event, you may have boards titled:

  • food
  • decor
  • location
  • attire
  • photography
  • hair styles

You’ll know what works best for your personal organization style, just be sure to use board topics that make sense to you and what celebration you’re planning for.

Follow the Leader

In addition to following your friends and family, follow blogs or websites that are of interest to you.  You’ll see their inspiration when you first login making it easier to “re-pin” your favorites.  And bear in mind, you don’t have to follow every board by that user.  Follow just the boards that bring you inspiration.  Want to branch out a little more?  Try doing a keyword search for things such as “wedding” or “baby shower” and follow individual users to draw inspiration from.
