Keeping track of all those ideas, however, can start to get a little crazy after a while, so it can be really helpful to create a way to organize everything you’ve found. If you’re looking online, Pinterest is a great resource, of course. But, if you’re using magazines and books, you’ll need a physical organization system as well. Not to brag, but Post-it® Arrow Flags and Post-it® Note-Taking Tabs work like a charm.
The easiest thing to do is to designate colors for certain categories of inspiration. In a wedding magazine, you’ve got everything in one spot, so, when you’re looking back through, you’ll want to be able to tell, at a glance, which page has the beautiful cake and which page has the gorgeous dress. The solution is simple: just pick a color of flag or tab for every category of inspiration you’re looking at – yellow for cakes, blue for dresses, green for flowers and red for hair and makeup, for example.
If you’re using Post-it® Note-Taking Tabs, you can also jot down notes to remind you what you originally loved about the page – you’d be surprised how easy it is to forget your favorites after you’ve looked through a dozen magazines.
When everything’s marked, you’ll have a good idea of how many options you’ve got – and how many decisions you have left to make.
Quick tip: Don’t just stop at the wedding – this is also a great way to organize wedding registry gift ideas and honeymoon destinations!
