Once it’s time to start planning your wedding, feelings surrounding your recent engagement can quickly shift from joy to panic. The idea of a full-on celebration is lovely, but preparing for the main event is a tedious task—especially if you’re hoping to go all out later this year or in 2022 (Dr. Fauci has given us his blessing, after all). The to-do lists will start to pile up; from narrowing down the number of guests invited to deciding what color table linens work well with your scheme. And, unfortunately, not everyone can have The Wedding Planner’s exacting Jennifer Lopez at the helm. The next best thing? A wedding planner, but in book-form.
Something as simple as a notebook can help to get the job done, but we recommend an option with reminders and to-do lists already compiled for you—planners especially designed to ensure brides and grooms don’t forget a single detail. There are spiral-bound options from The Caledonia Design Co. Store that operate as personal countdowns—likely a favorite of meticulous couples as they break down a list of tasks according to how far out the wedding is.
There are also beautifully designed planners (we like those from Emily Ley and Erin Condren) divided into easy-to-track sections devoted to the very crucial duties, like selecting an invitation, the reception’s seating plans, and tracking the cost of the wedding.
