Pinterest...You are TOO much.

Oh, Pinterest. How you have changed the world of weddings!

This weekend, my hubby and I attended a wedding of one of his coworkers.
Apparently, the weather did not get the memo that a wedding was occurring—it was 50 degrees and raining cats and dogs.
Thankfully, my brother-in-law had left an umbrella in his room when he moved out, and I figured since I cleaned up his room, it would count as one of those “finders, keepers,” kinds of situations.  
I had my red coat and my matching umbrella—thank goodness; I would have been soaked without them.
As we walk in the wedding cite, we see the happy couple’s engagement photos. They are super trendy, with color in all the right places—the groom has on suspenders and the train tracks are perfectly placed in the background. Never in a million years could I have thought of this picture and the other dozens of scenes strategically placed throughout the wedding hall. I assume Pinterest was the inspiration for these photos.
Husband and I shared a laugh, as we recalled our own engagement photos. It was almost ten years ago, (TEN…YIKES), and we got the $9.99 special at our local Wal-Mart. We only had to choose from three different poses and we went from there.
Man, how times have changed.
From the dried flowers and bows on the backs of the chairs along the aisle, to the handmade soap parting gifts, it truly seemed that the minutest details were taken into account at this wedding.
It was quite amazing!
It seems like you can do anything if you have the slightest idea.  I am assuming the bride got a lot of her ideas from Pinterest—I don’t know for sure, but given the popularity of Pinterest, I think it is a safe bet.
Oh, Pinterest. Thank goodness you weren’t around when I got married. I would probably still be working out all the details based on what I had repinned.
