Keep your wedding planning and spending on track with one of these brilliant new Wedding Planner Books.

When it comes to planning a wedding, you need to be super organised in order to ensure that every meticulously chosen detail comes together on the big day and that it is all within your wedding budget. Planning a large event with so many elements is no mean feat and brides and grooms can often be overheard saying that it’s “like having a second full time job”.

Using a wedding planner book can really help make the experience less stressful and fun and enjoyable though and is the easiest way to ensure you have everything to hand each time you go to an appointment. While some couples love spreadsheets and online planners, a lot of nearly-weds like to have all the details in a more tangible format like a book. Or if you want to be the most organised bride or groom in town, you may want to use both digital and paper planners.

Wedding planner books allow you to be really creative and as well as all the concrete details like dates for appointments and tracking your budget, you can also keep swatches of material or colour charts in a planning book. There are some really gorgeous wedding planner journals in the shops this year that’ll help you plan your 2021 or 2022 celebration to perfection and will be a lovely memento of your engagement to look back on after the big day.

We’ve rounded up the most useful, practical and, of course pretty new wedding notebooks to buy this year, where you can keep track of everything from the big stuff like choosing and paying for your venue and wedding dress, to jotting down inspiration and ideas for smaller details like the decor and your music playlists. Once you’ve celebrated the engagement and before you start planning or search for anything wedding related, be sure to have a wedding planner book to hand and you’ll find your wedding planning journey is brilliant fun and most importantly, smooth sailing.
