Hello Newly engaged couples! It is engagement season too, and most pop the question during the holiday season starting from Thanksgiving to the New Year.
To help you get started I picked my favorite wedding planner books and binders, including mine :)
It's the first step that will really help you get organized.
The first one is The Ultimate Wedding Planner & Organizer by Elizabeth Lluch, and Alex Lluch.
This is the one I just finished using myself ;) I found it really helpful, filled with etiquette, folders (very important to hold all your info) and the book is separated into sections that includes you stationery, ceremony, reception, photographer, etc. It's a great way to keep all your contracts in order. And it helps you with timelines and also the most important "day of" timeline". Plus you can add a pretty picture in the front of the cover, super cute!
The next favorite is the ever popular Martha Stewart's Keepsake Wedding Planner [Book] by Martha Stewart. It's a real staple and is overflowing with useful features to help you plan and organize the perfect wedding—in addition, you can preserve those memories for a lifetime.
If you are planning most of your wedding online and want to keep with you the ultimate wedding site to go get The Knot Complete Guide to Weddings in the Real World: The Ultimate Source of Ideas, Advice, and Relief for the Bride and Groom and Those Who Love Them. It has all their famous wedding timelines in this essential wedding planner book.
Now for those offbeat brides who want their wedding "their way" I'm talking to you riding in a harley into their wedding or want their wedding to be super unique and most importantly to reflect them. Then go for The Anti-Bride Wedding Planner: Hip Tools and Tips for Getting Hitched by Carolyn Gerin. Tie the knot outside the box armed with this companion volume to the wildly popular Anti-Bride Guide. Featuring sassy and savvy ideas, useful questionnaires, handy pockets, and space for notes and doodles, the Anti-Bride Wedding Planner provides creative inspiration for brides-to-be who want to kick the conventional wedding to the curb.
This is the first step to planning ladies! Now go have fun and send this link to your bridesmaids, mom or others to buy it for you! LOL!
