Pinterest

We all know Pinterest is a bride-to-be’s best friend. (Let’s be honest, the same goes for a pre-bride-to-be—hello, secret wedding boards!) With thousands of beautiful, inspirational images of everything from gowns to flowers to food, we can’t get enough either!

One of our favorite pinning pastimes is finding inspiring color suggestions and images, and we know brides agree. So we’re thrilled to be partnering with The Perfect Palette on our Nordstrom Weddings Pinterest boards, to bring you ideas in every shade of the rainbow.

The Perfect Palette is THE source of color inspiration for parties, fashion, and of course, weddings. There are 54 shades to choose from on the Search by Color function, and more palette board ideas than we can count. The pairings are fresh and unique, and the color names (“cerulean”, “fig”, “latte”) take us back to our Crayola days.

Look for our shared Pinterest boards where we’re always pinning bouquets, table decor, bridesmaid dresses, bridal accessories and shoes…really, we’re as addicted as you are! We grouped colors in these categories so you can get mix-and-match inspiration.

BOLD BRIGHTS: think electric blue, hot pink, sunny yellow, grass green

Hero

SPARKLE & SHINE: think silver, gold, copper, pewter, bronze

PERFECT PASTELS: think peach, blush, mint, lavender, lemon

BLACK & WHITE: think, well, black and white (but oh, the combinations!)

Follow us and tell us what you like in your comments and repins!

We also have a NEW Shop by Color function for bridesmaid dresses on our site. Check it out!

We’ll admit it: Everyone on our Weddings team is an addict. We have a terrible habit of sitting on the couch eating a pint of fro-yo and tuning the world out while pinning for what seems like hours. It’s especially easy to get wrapped up in the world of weddings on Pinterest, and we know brides everywhere agree!

So, we decided to make the most out of our addiction and share one of our current favorite Pinterest boards every day this week—in no particular order. Here’s our first pick:

Summer Watkins of Grey Likes Weddings. Ms. Watkins has expertly curated boards on all kinds of themes, but our faves are the drool-worthy Wedding Details and Wedding Flowers. We also love her Packaging and Gift Wrap board with endless DIY ideas for making any gift look unique.
