Besides Facebook and Twitter, the next largest social media network is Pinterest. Pinterest is a visual social media tool that allows users to share, plan, organize and express their ideas for all different types of events, thoughts, projects and collections. Each collection/event/idea can be organized onto a different “board”. With over 70 million active users, it’s hard to argue with the success of the network. 68 % of Pinterest users are women between the ages of 25-34. These demographics are also quite similar to the most popular marriage ones in the U.S., which is why so many women are using Pinterest for wedding ideas these days rather than an actual wedding planner. For many women who are on a budget for their wedding, a wedding planner is a luxury, not a necessity. With social media networks like Pinterest (which is completely free), savvy DIY women can take personal wedding planning to a whole new level.
Make sure you begin using Pinterest early in the wedding planning process. This way, you have time to really think about which ideas you like best and can narrow down as the big day gets closer.
