5 Day Challenge: Design Your Wedding on Pinterest
A majority of my clients come to me with big Pinterest boards full of wonderful inspiration. They’ve spent hours upon hours searching for said inspiration through the troves of that site pinning away until the early morning hours.
But, they are lost. They don’t know how to use all of that inspiration that they found or how to organize it or if they really even like it anymore. I mean, scroll through your pins from even 9 months ago and you’ll see that most are no longer relevant.
This is where my skills as an event designer come in. I whittle their giant board into a smaller, more concise, intentional board to use as we make decor decisions. Since I’m a pro, that pinterst board turns into a fully designed mood board with color chips.
One 8.5″ x 11″ letter size page of ten inspiration images and some color chips from a giant, out of control, overwhelming Pinterest board.
Now, I’ve written a free course on how to use pinterest to design your wedding.
In 5 days, you will learn:
- How to efficiently search Pinterst for the best inspiration images
- Which wedding and non-wedding accounts I find my favorite images on
- Tricks for organizing an overwhelming Pinterest board
- How to create a smaller, cohesive, design board to make decor decisions off of
- Designer’s practices for choosing an aesthetic and color story
The worst feeling when planning your wedding is decision fatigue. That happens when you have too much visual inspiration (hello giant pinterest board) and are overwhelmed with decisions on wedding decor.

How to Design Your Wedding on Pinterest
Colorful Geometric Wedding at 26Bridge
Hold on to your iced coffees, people. This one is worth a read and a slowwwww scroll.
Risa and Ross were married in a colorful explosion of flowers and geometrics at 26Bridge in Dumbo, Brooklyn. In what is basically my heaven, they said their vows surrounded by the most beautiful florals and hexagons.
Planned by Jove Meyer Events, I was hired to create three mind blowing geometric installation moments throughout the industrial, warehouse space of 26Bridge. This was one of those projects that I simply said “yes” to everything, “okay” to all ideas, “let’s do it” to anything crazy we thought up. I was so excited about the overall design scope of the project, the chance to work at 26Bridge, and this couple’s love for design and for each other, that I decided we’ll figure it out later.
And that we did.
We figured out how to hang 400 painted hexagons with custom sheer backs all glued together from a 30′ high railing.
We created art installations. True sculptures of creativity using paper tubes covered in gold mylar that were woven together into geometric orbs. These orbs undulated down both sides of the brick venue.
The escort card wall, made from the lids of the 400 hexagon boxes mentioned above, incorporated the custom watercolor pattern from their invitations from Swiss Cottage Designs with their color palette of bright yellow, orange, and coral.
Inbal Sivan Photography provided these remarkable images. This wedding is one of my proudest to date. We were lucky to have it featured in Martha Stewart Weddings print edition, on newsstands now!
Their faces in these photographs! I want every couple to have this look of wonder and beauty and awe and pure happiness when they see their venue all decked out for the first time. Behind them in the above photo, you can see a peek of the hexagon installation we hung over the windows. More below!
Here are the geometric, undulating, art installations. Our goals with this part of the installation was to incorporate more of the geometry and angles that Risa loves while breaking up the brick walls of the industrial space. We did that by designing sculptures of white and gold tubes that we hung to look like they were floating on the walls.
The final look achieved our initial vision. I’m really proud of how these installations turned out.
This section of the geometric sculpture installation turned into the photobooth backdrop. The sculpture undulated down the wall and eventually created a 10′ x 10′ angular backdrop for the photobooth. This was one of the coolest backdrops I’m ever designed. I’m not a big fan of the traditional pipe and drape photobooth backdrops – I’d prefer it to seamlessly be in the space, playing off the rest of the design in the room
Thank you to Risa and Ross for having us create the geometric space of your dreams! Tomorrow, I’m going to share a little behind-the-scenes of the design process, sketches, and install of these incredible art pieces.

New Q&A Series
Hi party people! We are launching a new Q&A Series here on the blog. I get a lot of questions from clients, prospective clients, and friends about so many things when they are planning the decor for an event. Each week I’ll answer a question about event design, decor, or flowers for anyone that is currently planning an event.
Is that you? Do you have any burning questions, pain points, or stress while figuring out your event design that I can help you with?
