People say that flowers don't last forever, but the way they make you feel does! Flowers truly have a way of transforming a wedding, and whether you are having an outdoor fall wedding or an indoor elegant soiree, florals always enhance the wedding space with their beauty! However, most couples don't often think of flowers as being long-lasting days, weeks and even years after their wedding.

How to Share Your Blog Post Content on Pinterest!

I have never paid for "traditional" business advertising, such as print ads, paid wedding accounts, bridal expos etc. Social media is such a powerful, FREE form of advertisement, that so far, has worked well for my business! For reaching new potential brides, I love to use Facebook, Instagram, local wedding blogs, styled shoots, and Pinterest!! Every time I post a blog, I upload it directly to Pinterest, so I can reach brides on that platform as well. Pinterest is one of the largest and fastest growing social media sites, and brides are on it A LOT, browsing wedding ideas. It's one of the best places to share a wedding bouquet you created, that gorgeous bride and groom portrait you shot from a vineyard wedding last week, or that beautiful custom invitation suite! Today I'm sharing the simple way that you can pin your blog posts straight to Pinterest, so you can start promoting your content on there as well!
