I saw this Meme the other day and it got me thinking about how true it was. The amount of Brides that we have coming to us and showing us pictures of what they would like their Wedding to look like, or the exact dress that they want and all of the pictures are from Pinterest and they say “I can’t find this anywhere!” Does this sound familiar?
Pinterest is amazing, I love making mood boards and getting ideas, but it can also be very unrealistic and it is hard for some Brides to understand that, here are some reasons why:
- About 90% of the pictures of Pinterest are from America, so that already is one reason why you may not find what you are looking for here in the UK.
- The biggest reason why that Wedding you have saved on your Pinterest is so amazing and incredible is because it would have been created on a very big budget, and trying to have the same on a more realistic budget won’t work.
- These brides you see in these tight fitting incredible dresses, might well have cost thousands and thousands of pounds! So if you do have a spare £20,000 to spend on your dress, then I would say, yes Pinterest is a good idea. But if you don’t, try not to put all your hopes on that dream dress you have found on Pinterest, because 9/10 times you will not be able to have it.
If you are still looking for your Wedding Dress we highly recommend Martels Bridal Boutique, click here to visit their website .
Trying to plan your whole exact Wedding on Pinterest is not a good idea, try not to get to stuck on “this is exactly what I want in this picture!”
But that is not to say that you couldn’t have the Pinterest Wedding of your dreams, you can take ideas from pictures, like colours, themes and styles and create them into something of your own. Talk to your suppliers and if they are good they will help you achieve your vision but for a price that is right for you.
