I bought this book as a gift for a newly engaged friend. She absolutely loves it. Lots of helpful hints, space to record all your important details and pockets to keep receipts. It is so nice to have one place to reference all the important details for your special day. I highly recommned this wedding planner. I will definitely purchase this planner again for the next friend to get engaged. The one downside is that if you have a large guest list, this planner only allows for 100 guests. It is also lighter in weight so it is easier to carry around, not like some of the other bulkier planners.

When I was looking at wedding planners, I wanted one that was truly a planner - an organizer for all the details, with to-do lists and contact information sections, so that everything we needed the day of the wedding would be in one easy-to-find spot. This book definitely fits the bill! Unlike some planners that are primarily idea books, with entire chapters devoted to dress styles and do-it-yourself centerpieces, this little gem has all the basics in one place, without the weight and bulk. Easy to carry, easy to pack, and easy to flip through to find critical information, like - when exactly did we say the photographer was coming? Two pockets inside the cover hold swatches and business cards, and each section has basic advice and information related to that topic, without going overboard. It includes room for overall budget planning, budget and details for each component of the wedding (and each person involved!), extensive to-do lists (organized by date) with completion and confirmation boxes, fill-in calendars, and even space for journaling should you desire. My only 2 complaints so far are that 1) there are no pockets in the relevant sections for copies of contracts and the like, and 2) the Guests section has room for 100 entries, and we have more people still to invite! I am keeping contracts and fliers in a separate 3-ring binder and just copying relevant details into the book. With two really large families invited, I've decided to fit them in the Guests section by only writing in those guests that RSVP "yes", since I have a wedding scrapbook that has pages to record gifts and thank-you notes to/from those that can't make it.

This is by far the best planner I have seen yet- It is simple down to the point. I love that it has every section divided off and easy to locate. It has the calendar,guest list with places for you to write their accomodations,key people. It was very easy to carry around with me.

This is exactly the wedding planner I was looking for! It is beautifully simple and includes everything I need such as key people contact info and guest list planning. The book is the perfect size to travel with, as many of the other planners I looked at were too big and bulky. I love the ideas for bouquets featured in this book too! If you are like me and want an elegant and uncomplicated planner, this is the book for you!

I wanted to make the best organizer for brides from my experiences helping hundreds of brides design their weddings. I have done it! This is the book you need to keep organized and minimalize anxiety- it has it all- a page for every service, guest information, wedding party, calendar, journal, pockets, AND the best TO-DO list you can buy, I guarantee it. It is beautiful and well made- and unbelievably cheap. Enjoy
