Pinspiration time!

20th May 2013

Pin It Forward UK 2013Here at GU HQ we’ve been madly pinning tips, ideas, information and inspiration to Pinterest since we discovered this neat social networking tool some time way back. Now the lovely people over at Pinterest have developed it so that UK users will be able to select British spelling and set ups. This means your searches will feature more UK content - brilliant! So to make existing UK pinners aware of this, and get you all excited to join, they have launched a #PinItForwardUK campaign that started a week ago. Green Union’s been invited to help the campaign’s momentum and we are delighted to participate!

You might already have a Pinterest account and you might already have experienced the addictive nature of this online tool to help you find wedding inspiration, develop your very own wedding theme and build a picture of the suppliers you want to use for your wedding. But for anyone who hasn’t discovered it, Pinterest is a brilliant tool for couples to collect and organise the things they love and to build their wedding mood boards, not only with inspirational photos, but also potential wedding suppliers and services. It works like this:


You can "œpin" things from around the web, or even from your own computer, onto boards you create, on any topic you’d like. At GU HQ we endlessly pin about weddings, green and natural weddings in particular. For instance we have a board devoted to Autumn Flower Inspiration with fantastic tips on seasonal flower choice and creative colour.

It’s a great tool for working out a colour theme for your autumn green wedding. As well as inspiration boards we’ve also got boards full of eco friendly wedding venues, fantastic tents, ethical wedding dresses, fair trade jewellery plus trends, seasonal inspiration and hand made decor ideas too.


What’s so great about pins is that they’re not only visual (mmm... that beautiful bunch of flowers!) but pins also link back to the source so you can get more details about the flowers or florist by clicking on that pretty picture.

Anyway, we find Pinterest really useful for saving and offering all manner of wedding inspiration and more, so follow us over there or if you don’t have an account yet go ahead and use this registration link to start pinning!

Time to pin it forward...
Let me introduce you to fellow wedding blogger and pinner Alexandra Merri of The Bijou Bride who has a Pinterest board packed full of wedding ideas that you can follow too.
