My little sister, had an issue with me about this same thing. I had a PINTREST and she added me to hers, and then confronted me when I  re-pinned the same hairstyles on my board. Her wedding isn’t even “real” yet, no engagement, and mine is two months away mind you.

 

I told her, what I will tell you. I am the type of pinner to just Pin it if it’s pretty and I love it. Doesn’t mean I am doing it, or buying it, or copying. I didn’t even realize she held such ownership over her PINS. I like when people re-pin my pin,, it makes me feel good. I am lover of all things gorgeous.

 

 

I wouldn’t worry about it.

I don’t think you should stress about it. I’ve pinned around 50 hairstyles for my wedding. Can I wear them all? No. Pinterest is a place to get ideas and inspiration, that doesn’t mean you’ll actually be using everything you’ve pinned. Even if she does wear a similar hairstyle to what you wear on your day, do you think anyone will notice but you?

Ditto everyone else. You’re overreacting. I have tons and tons of shit on my wedding pinterest that isn’t going to be used in my wedding. So do most people.

@LedeLady:  I agree. It’s extremely unlikely she’ll pick the same hair style – and even if she does I’d put money on it coming out slightly different because you don’t have the same hair or the same stylist. And honestly…I couldn’t tell you what the bride’s updo looked like at anyone’s wedding but my own!

I’d make a new board that is private and things you really like and want would go there vs the public board. I hide the same thing!

You should start pinning really ugly things to your public wedding board and see if she re-pins them.  🙂

But in all honesty, I doubt that anyone will pay attention to the exact hairstyle enough to notice that it’s the same one two weeks later (if somehow you end up doing the same thing) unless it’s like a purple mohawk or something. They’ll remember that.

@PinkAndPearls2013:  Uhm…you don’t own the hairstyle, or the sole right to pin it. I don’t really understand why you’d get upset about this. If you guys pick out the same hairstlye then you could work it out. In the mean time…maybe don’t be such a drama queen?

@Khalessi3:  Lookout, I’m stealing some of your hair styles! Nice pinning 🙂

Yes you are overreacting. She might not actually be using it and even if she is, it’s not like you created it since you also found it on pinterest. Also, she might like the pictures for reasons that are not obvious, like veil placement or curl size,  etc. If you are actually worried,  why not call her and ask her what she is doing with her hair?

She pinned the same hairstyles and that bothers you? Seriously, even if you two have the exact same hairstyle on your wedding days- no one besides you would even know. I think you’re being a little silly.

If you’re really worried about it, you could ask her how she plans to do her hair that day, and if she wants the one style you had your heart set on, you could say “really? That’s what my stylist and I have talked about, too!” and give her a chance to change her mind. But that was someone else’s hairstyle, and perhaps they didn’t want to be duplicated by you (and the world at large) any more than you want to be duplicated by your sister. Though copying your wedding would be in bad taste, there are no dibs on things that aren’t your original ideas.

Maybe I am just weird but I take it as a compliment when people (especially ones I don’t know) follow my boards and pin my pins. But I too pins things I like and it doesn’t mean I am doing them. I have over 100 pins on my wedding board and no way am I going to be able to do all of them. And I say who cares even if you 2 did have the same hair style? With a veil or tiara I bet nobody would even notice?
