Pinterest Tip: Use the Description Space Wisely!

{It is very snowy and cold outside but I have a cup of tea (hello Chai Latte, where have you been all my life?!), and Pinterest is fired up on my computer so I’m good – the perfect way to waste a Saturday off!}

A quick tip for all you Pinterest using brides and grooms out there – make sure you use the description space wisely!  Pinterest makes it so easy to save anything and everything with very little brain power needed.  That’s the great and not so great thing about Pinterest.  Great because you can always have your ideas at your fingertips, not so great when it comes down to having to share your pins with your vendors – anything and everything is overwhelming and can lead to confusion and misunderstandings!

Often I see pinners pinning a picture for one element – say the candles but not the flowers or the napkin fold but not the color of the napkins.  Unless you clarify what you like and don’t like about your pins, it is easy to forget down the road and then that pin is just another pretty picture.

Simply try to make a point to clarify what you like and/or what you don’t like about each pin so it is clear to someone viewing your boards.  Here’s a great example – what does the original pinner like about it?  The ribbon on the handle – easy peasy!  Of course if you like the pink flowers but not the ribbon, you should change the description!  Simple, right?

Another tip?  Every once in a while, go back and clean up your pins.  The easiest way to do this is to create a new board, go through your old boards and anything you still love, move or repin to the new board.  This is an especially good idea if you have a long engagement – sometimes the old pins are good for a laugh.

Stay warm and happy pinning- I’m off to make more tea!
