Secret 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:

 

I love fun cake toppers and cats, so this cake topper from Plasticsmith on Etsy is purrfect!

Jared has awesome university-themed jewelry.  FMIL went to WVU, so there is a good chance she's getting a necklace like this!

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?).

Have you found any uses for a secret Pinterest board?

 Do you share your wedding board with anyone else?
