Remember cutting out pictures from magazines of wedding dresses, engagement rings, bridesmaid colors? Some of us make mental notes and others make scrapbooks. These days, girls may have a folder on their computer with documents full of cut and pasted links and photos. Still in beta, The Knot has launched the Wedding Inspiration Board, a great new way to click and save images to plan for your big day.
The Wedding Inspiration Board allows you to create visually compelling collages, perfect to print out and share with friends, family, events planners, florists, etc. to give them an image of what your big day might look like. It can help you edit what you really love and also give your man (who may have a hard time imagining a flower arrangement) an idea of your vision.
If you’re in a serious relationship and your brain is starting to bubble, then the new Inspiration Board could be a great place for you to unload. Case in point: 28-year-old Jessica from NYC found herself conjuring up a story to tell her boyfriend why she had a document on her computer with links and photos of her dream engagement ring. Now, The Knot’s new Wedding Inspiration Board could provide a safe haven for collecting and saving your ideas without freaking anyone out! Whether you’re single, on the verge or engaged, the Inspiration Board is an easy and fun way to earmark those timeless vintage shoes or save a link to that fabulous winery for the perfect outdoor ceremony.
The Knot has also launched The Nest and The Bump for the next two phases after marriage—creating your home together post marriage and having a baby, respectively. Similar tools are set to be built for these sites as well. Stay tuned!
