If you are in the midst of planning a wedding, a must is to have a planner. Today, I am sharing with you a beautiful wedding planner book.
A dear friend of mine, Alda Ellis wrote the most amazing book, “Our Wedding Planner”. It is a guide to take you through every phase of planning a beautiful wedding.
This Wedding Planner makes a lovely gift for someone planning a wedding or newly engaged. Not only are the photos in this book incredibly gorgeous, this book helps you plan your dream wedding that fits your budget. She has a chapter in the book that is devoted to address your budget with tips for an affordable wedding. It was one of my favorite chapters. It aids you to focus on those important elements for a splurge when planning your wedding.
The photographs are so inspirational throughout this book. The first thing I did was look at all of the beautiful photos before reading the content. It also helps to give you ideas for planning your wedding. Also, another take away is the importance of having a great photographer to capture your special day.
There is a chapter about photography and video. Believe me when I indicate that the day will go by very fast. You will want to capture every aspect of that day. Alda stated in the book to “Make photography one of your top priorities”. I have to agree with her. You will never get that day back so capture it well.
She has thought of everything! There a pockets inside the front and back covers to hold notes, emails, photos your have cutout from magazines. This book is perfect to slide into a tote bag when you meet with individuals to discuss wedding plans. The book has pages to jot notes. Sections for information such as your Hair Stylist, Makeup Artist, Attendants for the wedding, guest lists, etc.
An important chapter of the book is “Your Calendar”. I know a bride may feel quite overwhelmed as she plans the details of her wedding with time frames. If you like “To-Do Checklist”, Alda has a very detailed checklist of the preparation from six-twelve months before your wedding up to the day of your wedding. She has left no stone unturned!
It’s is a wonderful book to help not only you to plan your special day but a guide for you stay organized and on top of things. The more organized you are will help you to feel less stressful as the big day approaches.
This book is amazing! I highly recommend it to any couple planning their wedding. It was an honor to to receive this book as a gift from my lovely friend, Alda.
