So you are engaged! Congratulations! It really is an exciting time. I do hear from brides quite often that they are just "ready for it to be over." And I completely understand it. You've spent hours on Pinterest pinning your life away and you are probably just overwhelmed. There are so many ideas & decisions to make that in the beginning especially, you find it extremely difficult to get anywhere with the planning process because you keep changing your mind. Simply due to the massive amount of "new" ideas on Pinterest or Instagram.
Even worse, you find the most beautiful image in the world and then you send to it to your florist to get priced & realize that it cost $5,000 to re-create that concept. What a bummer. Now don't get me wrong - I would be an absolute liar if I said I don't get inspiration from Pinterest, Instagram, Blogs, etc. I would be just plain bad at my job if that were the case. But I do feel that as a new bride all the possibilities can be downright frustrating.
So, I'm just throwing this idea out there - what if you take a break from scrolling and look for inspiration in items that are close to you or that mean something special. Such as a cool accessory, broach, or even shoes! I love, love, love when people bring an heirloom from home & then we run around the shop finding things that will compliment it. What fun that can be!
While Pinterest is an amazing marketing tool, inspiration builder, teacher etc, I think we should all step back from the computer and say to ourselves, what do I truly like??
