The Pixelated Bride

Nose Touch

We can all agree that a typical characteristic of a bride-to-be would be “glowing”, but did anybody ever consider that the glow might just come from the Retina screen of her Macbook Pro? Yes, that’s right; today’s bride has gone online.


Let’s play the “how many boards” game. How many boards does it take to plan a wedding? From flowers to bridesmaid dresses, we think between ten to twenty boards is reasonable enough. Through Pinterest, brides can become their own wedding planner. Keep all ideas in one place and when you finally think you’ve reached the permissible amount of pins before you feel like you’ve gone through the entire Internet, congrats! Start planning.

Not only is Pinterest an accessibly large pocket of ideas, but it also lays everything out in front of you and helps you see what direction you’re set out to accomplish. Do you want a rustic touch of antique or a modern affair? Your brain knows, and all the contents of your subconscious have mentally vomited all over your Pinterest boards. Once you’ve grasped what exactly your subconscious wants, anything otherwise has no chance of smuggling its way in.


Besides updating your status to “I’M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” you can also use the many facets of Facebook to not only “promote” your wedding, but to keep family and friends in the loop.

Not to be confused with a club promoter, but as a bride, keeping people interested in the main event is a good thing. What if someone were to choose between your wedding and a weekend getaway to Branson, MO? We’d like to assume they’d avoid the latter at all costs, BUT JIC maybe you should frequently rather than not-so update your wedding peoples that this thing is INDEED still happening.

Pop into the “Check-in” feature and tag your bridesmaids at a dress fitting or create an album containing pictures that lead up to the big day. Take advantage of the pre-set website-feel Facebook profiles consist of. Also, if you have family members who live far away, the “Create Event” feature, which is a creative play on an E-vite, can make things such as an engagement party or photo session easier to plan.  There is a constant flow of communication with every invited guest within it, making organizing effortless.
