The Pinterest Bride

I can honestly say, I'm so incredibly jealous of all of my brides. They have a tool that 4 years ago I didn't have to use with helping me in my planning. Pinterest. From cooking and household tricks to events and weddings, this site has it all. If you're a bride and are not on this site, go now and create an account. You can thank me later.

Not only is it great for gathering ideas, but it's great for communication with your planner and florist. This past July I had the pleasure of working with a fabulous couple, Ro + Brad at the beautiful William Aiken House . Ro + Brad booked with me about 8 months out from their big day, which is about normal. However, Ro + Brad lived in DC and wouldn't be coming to Charleston, SC until their wedding week.

Thank God for Pinterest. Ro and I constantly went back and forth regarding special touches for her and Brad's big day. We have a huge amount of ideas on our own Pure Luxe Bride Pinboard which we always recommend for our clients to look at.

Alas, the big day as arrived, and look at these stunning Pinterest ideas come to life!
