This could actually cost you your job if the bosses catch on or if your company monitors your online activities.
How to Dial It Down: Schedule a reserved Pinterest Time (such as an hour after dinnertime), where you wind down from your busy day with inspirational photos. Make it your evening ritual, but limit "research" to an hour only, so that your groom doesn’t feel abandoned while you’re zoned out in front of your computer.
He may start off patient, but you’ll soon hear exasperation in his voice, and that can escalate into arguments.
How to Dial It Down: Don’t think that e-mailing him at work is better, since you’ll just sit there fuming when he doesn’t respond right away. Respect his worktime and the clear mind he needs to do his job – just like you need at yours – and don’t risk either of your jobs with personal calls. Make it a point to wait until you get home to discuss important wedding issues. Just allow him to decompress first—you don't want to overwhelm the poor guy with 20 tasks the second he walks through the door.

How to Dial It Down: Tell your groom how lucky you are to spend the rest of your life with him, write him love notes, thank him for asking you to marry him, talk about the future you envision with him, and make sure he still has you right there with him. Be the woman he fell in love with, and bliss will be there…for both of you.
