Getting Scrappy!

Okay, Great - You are engaged and you can finally plan the wedding that you have been thinking about since what seems like forever. The first step I would suggest is to get yourself a place where you can document all the ideas that will be whizzing around your head. This way you can keep all your clippings from wedding magazines, fabric samples from suppliers and price lists from stockists in one place. This scrapbook doesn't have to be anything special - any decent sized notebook will do. I would recommend investing in something with a hardback cover as it might get knocked around when you are taking it to various appointments, lunch dates with bridesmaids and all the rest! Here is a picture of my scrapbook to give you an idea:
If you fancy getting something a little more custom to document your ideas there are plenty of options on the market for you to choose from. This Heart Laser Cut Social Scrapbook is from Paperchase, priced at £12.50. The pretty heart detail against the white background fits in well with a wedding theme.

The scrapbook featured below is in a vintage style and is priced at £38.99.

Pinterest will allow you to "pin" pictures you come across online onto a mood board, enable you to look at boards create with other brides to gather more ideas and allow you to share your board with others for example your family and friends. If you want to keep the details of your wedding a secret till the big day then there is always the option to set your board to private. You can also upload your own images to your board as well as those that can be found on the web. Here is a sneak peak from my own Pinterest wedding board...
