Using Pinterest to Plan Your Wedding: Using Sections

The day I discovered that Pinterest let you have sections within a board was the day my life changed. Not in some mystical way, but talk about all the organizational ease and awesomeness that comes with having sections?! I went from nearly a hundred boards, one for each subject (Food: Breakfat, Food: Pies, Food: Cookies, Food: Dinner, etc., etc., etc.) to having 18 public boards. This is an AMAZING tool for organizing ideas which makes it an even more AWESOME way to use Pinterest to plan your wedding.

Before, we either had to have a ton of boards, or one jumbled up board of ideas that lead to never ending scrolling. Then add in friends, family, or a planner to your wedding board it it just go overwhelming. But now you can have just one wedding planning board and divide it into sections. This makes it easy to find the pins you need, get feedback from vendors or friends, and to cut out ideas you no longer need.

This is exactly how Natalie, one of my summer Prickly Pear VIP Brides, used Pinterest when it came time to plan her wedding!

To start making sections in your board, just follow these simple steps:


  1. In your Pinterst Board, click “Add Section”
  2. Pick a name

    You can create a whole list of sections. Ones that might be helpful are:
    Cakes and Desserts
    Groomsmen Attire
    Bridesmaid Dresses
    Color Palettes
    Tablescapes and Place Settings
    Invitations and Menus
    Hair Styles
    Bridal Details
    The only section I don’t recommend is “Poses to recreate”.  For more tips on how to use Photography Pose boards on Pinterest, click here.
  3.  Add in as many sections as you need/want!

  4. To then move pins from the general board to the sections, click “Organize” at the top of your board.
  5. The select all the photos that fit into a specific category (like “Cakes” for example)

  6. Click Move, and select the section you want the pins to go into.

  7. Enjoy your fully organized Pinterest board of wedding ideas!!

Other ways this might be helpful is if you have multiple people pinning to your Wedding Ideas board. They can pin to the general board and then you can move only those pins you really like into the sections. It’s a great way to cull through the ideas!
