For those of you who don't know about Pinterest yet, it is a new photo-driven social media platform that is taking the world by storm!
Pinterest has emerged as the third most trafficked social networking site, right after Facebook and Twitter and ahead of LinkedIn, according to Experian market research. Visitors shot up 50% between January and February.
"Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes."
Pinterest is helping brides all over the world find inspiration for their wedding, and more and more brides are creating Pinterest accounts. It not only helps you get inspiration for your wedding, but also helps you out in all aspects of the big day!
It is becoming more and more popular in the Arab world, and hopefully brides and creative Arabs will be sharing and pinning their weddings, pictures, and favorite things!
The USA Today recently posted an article on how a real bride has planned her wedding with ideas all gathered from Pinterest, "Smith estimates that 90% of her rustic mountain event will be inspired by or pulled directly from Pinterest, as she wishes."
"With its heavily female demographic, Pinterest and brides go together like love and marriage. But it's not just the women in white who are touchscreen-tapping into the power of the 2-year-old site."
Also adding, "It's changing the industry" for vendors, planners and magazines, says Anne Fulenwider, editor in chief of Brides. Since she took over the title in November, Pinterest has "exploded and really changed the conversation."
"A majority of her readers are pinners — repinning other users' favorites, culling the web for new stock and uploading their own pictures. She estimates that Brides' 55 boards, supplied with fresh images every day, are gaining about 500 followers a week. A favorite? "Couture-inspired wedding gowns" with more than 10,000 followers."
