Pinterest: a blessing
Because Brandon is linked up to a few different Silicon Valley folks, he often gets beta invites to test new websites. His invite to Pinterest came in early 2011, he offered me an invite (like he always does!), and I signed up and forgot about the site.
Fast forward to May/June of last year–became a pinning maniac. I initially balked at the idea of creating a board dedicated to wedding ideas because.I.wasn’t.even.engaged! Well, I created the board and instantly got addicted to pinning wedding ideas that I found across the web. After I got the iPhone and installed the Pinterest app I started snapping personal photos and uploading them to my wedding board.
Pinterest allowed me to gain numerous wedding ideas that I would not have been exposed to pre-Pinterest.
Pinterest: a curse
Pinterest allowed me to gain numerous wedding ideas that I would not have been exposed to pre-Pinterest. My pins were/all over the place, there is/was no clear vision, and I just liked TOO many things.
Three weeks ago Feybeeuhn pretty much banned me from Pinterest because I had too much going on.
We haven’t really officially named a theme or style for the wedding; we definitely want to use the Victorian home and all of the decor in and around it. We’ll definitely have vintage and early 20th century decor along with a smidgen of French countryside inspiration.
Here are a few things that have inspired me this week:

How did you decide on your wedding style?
