@lampshade:  I just hate when I come up with something creative and people assume if it was off of pinterest.

@lampshade:  I’m pretty much in the same boat with you. The bed and breakfast where we’re getting married is super cute, exposed beams, natural wood and it has a “rustic” feel. I had a bunch of ideas that included burlap and mason jars, but now I feel like I just can’t do any of that anymore because it’s all over Pinterest.

Pinterest ruined my opportunity to have my dream wedding dress. 

A few years ago I found this amazing custom dress maker from another country. Her work is jaw droppingly amazing. Amazing doesn’t even cover it. This was before I got engaged, but my fiance and I had already established we wanted to get married. He encouraged me to contact this woman. 

I sent her an email asking how much she charges and we talked a little about what I wanted. She emailed back saying her dresses would be $2,000 – $3,000 depending on how elaborate I wanted my dress.

Well, cut to a few years later and her dresses are ALL OVER Pinterest. It bummed me out that I had found such a gem and now it’s overexposed. BUT the things that was infuriating was I emailed her a few months ago and she said she now charges $5,000 – $10,000 for her dresses.

It’s all because of Pinterest. She said she gets 50 emails a day from US brides asking for her business. 

I honestly hate Pinterest.

A few years ago when I first started looking at wedding things I was like “screw all this generic stuff! I love moss and lace and milk glass and that’s all gunna be in there!” Fast forward, this rustic vintage stuff is everywhere. If I even still wanted it, by the time I get married in a few years it won’t be unique or even on trend, it will just be outdated.
