Highlights from my Secret Pinterest Board
Like most brides-to-be, I have a wedding Pinterest board. This has been insanely useful for everything from etiquette posts to centerpiece designs to wedding party attire. However, my favorite wedding board is the one that is a secret!
I made the secret board mostly out of necessity. I made the mistake early on of inviting my FMIL (future mother-in-law) to join my wedding board. I thought this would be a good way to include her in the wedding planning process and it is! BUT, it’s also really frustrating. Every time I pin something to the board, FMIL gets an update and I get a text, “really like that centerpiece, would be cheap to make, too.” Now, my well-curated wedding board is filled with shot-gun shell boutonnieres and film reel centerpieces. After a month, I delete the really awful pins, but I hate the clutter. A lot of my wedding is DIY, so I just want to open Pinterest, and see the 5 bouquets that I pinned, not the other fluff. So, I have taken to making a second hidden board with some ideas that I either don’t want to share (with my FMIL) or want to find easily. Here are some of my favorites from my secret Pinterest Board:
You might not need a private board for the same reasons I do, but it’s a great way to keep some ideas organized or to hide some parts of the wedding (like gifts for the bridal party?).
