I bought this for a friend who is getting married, and I am the maid of honor. I thought it would be a cute little addition to my engagement gift and that it might be helpful. The price was cheap, so even if she never used it I wouldn't care. Well, she loves it. It helps her keep everything organized. It has folders for all the sections. We went dress shopping the other day and she brought it with her. In there she had pictures of dresses, and when she bought the dress the receipt went right in there as well. She is very organized so I think she really appreciates that she has somewhere to put all the papers she gets for the wedding. I would definitely recommend this for someone who is not organized, but I would recommend this for someone who is super organized as well. There is lots of space for details that you want to fill in, she doesn't really use that but someone who is really organized might want to write things down. It also has a countdown, things you should do 12 months before, 6 months, etc, which is really helpful for the bride who has no idea when she needs to do things by in order for them to be ready for the wedding date. Overall it was a hit, and I'm glad.
I absolutely love this wedding planner. I was doing some searching for the most flexible one and found this 3 ring binder type. It is a soft cover binder comes with a bunch of sections (adorably named) to help you organize (All About the Bride, Ceremony, Reception, Wedding Party & Guests, Flowers Music & Photography, etc.) Each section has it's own plastic storage folder as well as page templates for each section (whether it's to list thank you notes or make a seating chart/list for the reception). The book also provides little hints/tips to help you keep things organized and eventful.I've been using it since I got engaged and have 14 more months to go until the wedding to keep using it.
I must say out of all the wedding organizers out there this is the best. It doesnt have a bunch of advise about planning, but it has room inside for everything. Its perfect for the obsessive bride like myself, that needs to keep everything. I have every receipt, contract, pictures of dress styles,flowers,cakes that I like cut out from magazines. All my honeymoon plans (flight plans, passport info), with room to spare. I cant believe I found something that can keep all the stuff I have going on all in one organizer! I would recommend this for any bride.
Right after I was engaged, my fiance and I raced out to purchase a planner a few months back. Since I didn't want to wait for a delivery I went to the local bookstore. Unfortunately, there were few to choose from, but I loved the look of the planner. I should've remembered the cliche saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover." After flipping through the pages today I realized how useless the book is for the pre-planning. For the beginning, I'm more interested in finding a venue, picking colors, budget tips, and attire to name a few. The book really focuses on the day of the wedding, invitations, and engagement party, bridal shower, etc. The book lacks a lot of information and isn't helpful for a bride during the current times, especially the bad economic times. I came across "Your Personal Wedding Planner" by Jo Anna Zaffree. I heard her on a podcast a couple days ago and regret not buying her book. Zaffree strongly focuses on how to budget during planning stages and even provides a page to post a picture of your dress! I highly recommend Zaffree's book to brides. Steer clear of "Tying the Knot."
My favorite things about this wedding organizer are the flexibility of the binder, the separation of each section, and a folder for each section for little extras. I have used the folders for catering menus, dress ideas, and brochures from photographers so far. I was freaking out because of how disorganized I was with planning my own wedding. Purchasing this binder was so calming. There are even little tips and tricks for DIY and saving money!
My cousin, and myself, just recently got engaged. I found this because she was having trouble figuring out what to do as it grows closer to her wedding. She absolutely loved it. I ordered myself one a few months later but was quite as impressed. I was hoping for dividers with labels....pretty much the works, but that is my organized freak side coming out. The content is useful but I was just expecting something different.
THIS BOOK IS GREAT! It has every detail a bride needs to prepare for her wedding! I love that it is a 3-ring binder so you can add your own pages. It has pockets through out the book so you can store recipts and business cards.The only thing is the cover is a bit flimsy. I do wish it was a tad bit stronger for when you are trying to write in it.Otherwise, totally recommend this book!
I found this binder to be helpful. However being a bride-to-be I found myself not having enough room to hold all of my information. I would not recommend this organizer if you planning a large wedding because it will simply not be enough.
