You may have guessed from the title, but I’m one of maybe a handful of brides on earth who is NOT using Pinterest to plan her wedding. Truthfully, I don’t even have a Pinterest account, nor I do fully understand how it all works.
What I do know, however, is that I cannot have it. I understand that it’s great for finding inspiration, and there are tons of cute things on there. I get it. But I have a hard enough time being productive in life with just Facebook hanging over my head. Add in another time-sucking app, and I’d never accomplish anything.
The other reason I can’t have a Pinterest is that it’s wholly overwhelming to me. I would “pin” probably everything on the site, and it wouldn’t be helpful to me because then I’d be overwhelmed by the millions of things that I pinned. It’s a vicious cycle, but it’s better if I never start.
I found StyleMePretty to be distracting and overwhelming enough, and that was all the inspiration photos that I needed in order to feel completely and entirely confused and useless. I made my best attempts at putting together inspiration boards, but I love everything, so it was pretty hard to narrow it down.
Ultimately, I’ve given up on making an actual inspiration board or something like it, because I get too overwhelmed with the “OMG I LOVE EVERYTHING” feelings. Maybe I’ll try again when I get a little closer to narrowing down the details, or maybe I’ll just make a “how it turned out” board later on!
Anyone else drowning in inspiration? Am I the last bride-to-be on earth without a Pinterest? How do you stay focused?
