Once you are on Pinterest, the explore part of the platform shows anything and everything trending. This is why it is important for you to search for a wedding - or topics related to weddings like "Haldi decoration" or "sangeet stage" and so on to hit the right spot. The Pinterest interface is a heaven for people who love the organised way of things. However, too much of something is more daunting than being helpful. To get rid of the extra elements from everything that you have pinned and focus on your Pinterest wedding board that will give a clear idea to your wedding planners, decorators and other pros, we have curated a list of tips.

Here are the tips and tricks to ace your Pinterest board game when it comes to planning your wedding.

Make a Masterboard

While you are surfing your options on Pinterest and pinning all things weddings that you like on the platform, put it together on a master board. You can start by pinning every idea that appeals to you. If you have a trend or a theme in mind already, you can go ahead with the pictures that fit best to your requirements. Anything that brings you closer to your idea of a dream wedding needs to be pinned on this master board that you can call "All Things Weddings" or probably call it your wedding hashtag to make it more personalised right from the start.

Segregate according to ceremonies

Once you have searched and surfed almost everything and you are the ned of your Pinterest page, you can now go back to the master board and start off by segregating the photographs according to the ceremonies. You can create boards like Engagement, Haldi, Mehndi and so on and start re-pinning your pinned photos to these boards. The boards will depend on the ceremonies you will host. For Bengali weddings, it will obviously be different from a Punjabi wedding ceremony or an Anand Karaj. Once you have decided the ceremonies, you can start sorting the clutter to rearrange it even more finely.

Sangeet Ceremony

When you have a venue in mind to host a fun sangeet night with your guests while dancing your shoes off, you'd probably want to put up the best stage decor, a cool dance floor set up, amazing lights and some jazzy outfits. You could pick a beautiful sequin saree or one of the latest western gowns and pin the designs you like on a board made solely for sangeet and later figure out the designer and trinkets accordingly.

By managing to take inspiration from Pinterest while flicking through thousands of ideas and photo tiles, you're already one step closer to planning your wedding on Pinterest and making it a hit. The next step was to streamline and pick the best and delete the rest - now while that can be said in one go, it is not all that easy to execute. This is why we suggest you to not be too hung up on one idea and don't pin anything too aspirational or unrealistic, pin things that are achievable for you to recreate or that will help you describe your vision to your suppliers.

Make sure your wedding mandap/altar decor is in sync with the way you have always imagined it to be. Be it transparent tents for weddings or teepee mandaps set up outdoor - the options are many. You must make a relevant choice to avoid any disappointments.

Wedding Brunch/Dinner Seating

While each of the pre-wedding ceremonies happen with close families and friends, pre-wedding ceremony meals are often not considered to be a big deal. You can, however, plan a separate seating decor/table decor board for each of the ceremonies too. But what is a must is for you to plan a wedding dinner table setup or wedding brunch seating ideas. Some examples have been mentioned below for reference.

Delete Similar or Duplicate Pins

Deleting similar or duplicate pins are very important. Sometimes though the elements used in the wedding decor picture might be slightly different but the colour combination and other props along with placement are very similar to some others. Make sure to pick the one that fits your choices best. Once the 10-15 best images are picked for each category, you must make sure to delete the rest to avoid cluttering. Having access to too many photographs for inspiration might confuse you and confusion is to be avoided at all costs especially because the wedding planning process is already so stressful and you need to de-stress quite often to keep your sanity intact.

Keep in mind that the look and feel of your pins matter more than the itty bitty details because there might still be some things or some beyond ordinary flowers that might not be available for your wedding so you must be flexible and open to alternatives. Also, make sure to search for accurate terms to avoid getting lost in the unlimited photo tiles. You can ask your bridesmaids and family members to contribute but we suggest keep your pinned boards personal to avoid any confusion or bombarding of opinions. 

You must take your Pinterest boards to the professionals to get an idea of the budget you are looking at because you might not want to splurge a lot by picking over expensive designs in a rush to make your wedding exactly like a Pinterest board. The big day is to celebrate you and your love for your Mr Perfect, so more than the appearance you must focus on the essence of the celebration and the rest will fall in place.

Keep these tips and tricks in mind to be on top of the legendary wedding planning process. Once you have your Pinterest boards in place, make sure to get in touch with the professional wedding planners to make your wedding day unforgettable.
