Wedding Planners

I debated hiring a wedding planner for a long time. Obviously, I love planning and I am also a wee bit of a control freak. But when it came down to the actual wedding day, I did not want to stressed over the table settings or making sure everyone is where they need to be at the correct times and those kind of details. I hired a wedding planner/sorority sister of mine to be our day-of coordinator. Just knowing she will be there the day of the wedding (and leading up to the wedding somewhat), makes me feel so much better! I know I will be able to relax and really enjoy the day an all my hard work.

With that said, if you are like me and want to do the majority of the planning on your own, I think it is important that you go into it with lots of resources. We will have been engaged for 17 months when our wedding rolls around, so I've had tons of planning time. I cannot imagine doing it in less than 12 months time. I've had lots of time to stew and really think about what I want and bring it to life (well, hopefully anyways!).

Everyone on Instagram was talking about Maybooks so I went over to their website to check them out, and lo and behold they have a wedding journal! From what I can tell it has planning tools built in. For $20, I think it would make an adorable gift for the just engaged bride-to-be or something for yourself to jazz up your planning! They are adorable!

Of course, if you want to make an extensive planner you can use my previously posted notebook how-to. The nice folks over at Samsill sent me a couple of their binders to review and I used one to make a friend her own wedding planning notebook upon her engagement. They seemed to be sturdy and a good deal! Hint hint...you could create a design like the one above, print it out and use it in one of Samsill's binders that have the clear front pocket?! Just an idea!

I was a hardcore bridezilla when it came to planning our wedding but also hired a DOC; best decision ever!

Hiring the wedding planner for your wedding is a good decision. But you want to plan the wedding within a budget. Then you have to plan the wedding by yourself with the help of wedding planner iPhone app and get gain from it.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post; I’ll try to get the hang of it!
