Etiquette Expert: Don't Pinterest Your Wedding When You're Single

We're happy to present this story from one of our favorite sites, YourTango. Today, modern etiquette expert Anna Post advises against pinning wedding dresses until you're engaged.

Recently, we interviewed modern etiquette expert Anna Post, the great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post, and she shared some valuable online-dating and social-media tips. From being authentic and genuine to keeping the initial online-dating emails to a minimum to saying "no" to sexting, she had a lot of insightful advice.

Here's one more important bit of online-etiquette advice she gave, for all you Pinterest-crazy gals out there: don't pin your fantasy wedding when you're single! We know, we know, it's tempting to look at all those gorgeous gowns, engagement rings, and wedding cakes and want to "save them for a later date, just in case," aka "gaze at longingly and obsess over" — but Post said this could turn your guy (or a potential guy) off.

"That's a lot of pressure for a guy to see," said Post, adding that she has been in a relationship for three years and has only posted one engagement ring on Pinterest — in the general jewelry section, and just because she thought it was pretty. "I still felt kind of weird about it."

Personally, I don't think there should be any kind of rule about this. It's a harmless fantasy, after all, so whatever works for you, go for it. What do you think about Pinteresting your wedding when you're single?

My boyfriend is not on Pinterest, and I doubt he would ever go on it. And I think there has always been that stereotype that a girl has been planning her wedding "since she was 12 years old". Pinterest is just a more efficient way to keep all the inspiration organized! And I think it's less of a turn-off than when Monica pulled out that huge, categorized wedding binder on "Friends"! And I think if you have like eight boards, one of them being beautiful wedding stuff isn't going to make you look like a psycho. Eh. To each her own.
