Pinterest?

I've recently joined Pinterest, I've created various folders, including a wedding folder. The trend seems to be for brides to get wedding ideas from this site, by re-pinning imagery/ideas from various users. As a photographer is a good source of creative ideas, I may start using it more to research forthcoming projetcs.
