VISION BOARDS & PINTEREST- HOW TO USE THEM IN WEDDING DESIGN

One of our most favorite things to do is full wedding design and planning.  When Jill contacted us  about her upcoming wedding at Duke's Malibu, she didn't really know where to begin.  Desiring an elegantly styled wedding, she had an idea of the colors she wanted to use - blush and gold - but was a little overwhelmed in knowing where to take it from there.  

The first step was to create a private Pinterest board which we could share with Jill.  This allowed her to pin anything that caught her eye and gave us a little insight into what her personality was and what she liked.  We were able to add pins as well and she could love them or not.  She could also look at our extensive Pinterest site under the categories such as cakes, florals and escort cards to pin ideas that caught her eye.  After a few weeks of this interaction with her, we carefully went through the pins we both favorited and deleted the rest.  We collected all of the items that we felt would be in line with her tastes and created vision boards like the one seen below.  

This allowed us to start taking the steps to finalize the exact design.  As we met with her various vendors such as Pretty Vintage Rentals in Westlake Village to choose lounge furniture, we began adding these specific items to the vision boards.  We added the wedding cake example from Frost It Bakery in Thousand Oaks and all of the other little details we started selecting.  As a result, the final vision boards created gave Jill and us a breakdown of exactly what we were going to implement to make her wedding the special customized day she wanted.
