As many Pinterest fanatics know, the wedding board is the bread and butter of Pinterest. The dresses, do-it-yourself decor, and tasty treats are the staple of our pinning diet. Although we spending hours on hours planning our perfect big day, when the time comes around, a lot of those ideas remain dreams. Here at Fracture, we believe no pin gets left behind. We are here to break it down for you on how to have the ultimate Pinterest wedding. Check out some of our favorite tips below.
1. Timeless Themes
Planning the theme of your big day is the first step towards a perfect Pinterest wedding. Here are three inspiring themes that you can take, twist, and make your very own.
The Vintage theme is a great mix between rustic and chic, and can be approached in many ways. This theme is cool, calm and collected, just like you will be on your wedding day (right?)
The Bohemian, or Boho theme, is all the rage these days. From extravagant celebrity weddings, to simple outdoor weddings in backyards, the Bohemian theme will bring out your inner trendy side.
The Moroccan theme is bold, unique and up and coming. Imagine bright pinks, oranges, and purples surrounding you in your beautiful gown. With this sea of colors around you, your white dress is guaranteed to pop, making you the center of attention (not that you won’t be already!)
2. Incredible Invites
Creating invites can be a lot to handle, especially if you have no idea what you’re looking for. There are thousands of creative ways to make your perfect Pinterest invite, but here are two of our favorites.
This Bohemian Floral Invite is simple and fresh, yet subtly detailed with calligraphy and floral bouquets. The colorful flowers together with a white background is the perfect contrast.
The Chalkboard Charm Invite is both sweet and personalized, with its ornate detail. In addition, the black and white contrast is classic and traditional.
Pro Tip: When mailing out your invitations, ask the post office to “hand cancel” your invitations to ensure your hard work is preserved. (For those of you who don’t know, the post office automatically puts your invitations through a machine. Hand canceling will allow this to be done by hand.)
3. Dreamy Decor
Pinterest is known for its delectable DIY decor. Decor can make or break any event, so make sure not to overlook this key step in making your wedding unforgettable. Here’s some wedding decor inspo!
Even our not so crafty readers will be able to make these adorable pom poms. These pops of color are the ultimate decor for any season and displaying them takes little to no time at all. Hang them high, and try to mix and match the colors for the full on pom pom effect you’re looking for.
Backdrops of all shapes and sizes make for the perfect photo opportunity for you and your guests. Go wild with a floral backdrop, get crafty with origami & paper creations, or keep it simple with ribbons, streamers and fabrics.

6. Light It Up
On your big day, your primary focus should be your soon to be partner’s face lighting up as you walk down the aisle.
