Creating a Web 2.0 Wedding
After getting engaged in Japan several days ago I already feel like I am behind, with picking out locations, decorations and the all-important dress. Every bride-to-be is looking for a way to put their own personal stamp on their wedding and as a social media specialist I was thinking about a web 2.0 wedding. Ditch the $15 wedding magazines ladies and welcome to the world of Etsy, lover.ly and Pinterest.
Instead of buying magazines, cutting them into pieces and lugging a binder around to all of the vendors you meet, why not just find the image on a wedding blog and pin it to your board on Pinterest and just take your smartphone to your consultations? SIMPLE! Here are some blogs and websites that I have been using to form the inspiration for my big day:
