Pinterest.  Who's doing it?  Well I read on a website that it's primarily used by women aged 25-35.    But I believe the audience is a lot more diverse than that now... It's been around for a while now, so I'm assuming most people know about it.  Brides... definitely. Suppliers in the wedding industry... for sure.  But for those of you who haven't yet jumped on board this latest fad, here's what it's about...

Remember those good old days when you had a project that you wanted to plan for - you'd spend all that time carefully cutting out images and clippings from magazines and newspapers, spend hours gluing them into a scrapbook of some short, then write beneath each image what it is, where you found it, how much it costs.  Hours of fun! 

Pinterest takes away all those hours and instead gives you everything in an instant. AND once more, it's all online - so you can tap into it no matter where you are.  

It lets you organise all your favourite images onto pinboards.  And for those of us who love to organise stuff, well it's just a dream come true.    Just think about the endless possibilities of various categories you can have... Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S would have loved it. 

Once more, you can share those images so others can see them.  You can then browse other peoples boards to see if you like what they like - if you do, then you just 'repin' it onto your board.   It's that simple. 

Some various categories that may be of interest when planning a wedding could be...

Wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, cakes, table settings, invitations, hair styles etc

Or you may be looking to be inspired by different themes...

Vintage, country, antique, woodland, nautical etc

Or colour themes...
Soft pink, sweet peach, blush, soft green, sparkling gold etc

And if it's not a wedding you're planning - the possibilities are endless.  House renovation, cooking inspiration, event planning, gift ideas, children/babies, favourite places, travel... and so much more. 

I might have to retract that comment earlier about it saving you hours - because I warn you now - it's HIGHLY addictive.   But oh so much fun!
