As many of you may have read in some of my previous posts, Matthew and I have finally started to plan our wedding can host more than one wedding each day. We don’t really have a date set in stone but we know we would love it to be either summer 2014 or 2015. Luckily for us the place we have in mind can be booked at short notice. I think the last time I looked at their Facebook page they had 6 weddings one day and only two the day before and three the day after, so I am hoping that we can be just book something with a couple of months notice once we have everything planned and paid for. We already know we are having an intimate ceremony with the boys and our close family and then a big reception when we come home for all our family and friends. As both of our families are so big there was no way we could invite everyone or have a shortened list without upsetting someone.
Luckily for me I was recently asked to review a wedding planner book from Paper Themes. Paper Themes are a company who specialise in wedding invitations, but they also sell lots of other wedding related items too.
The planner is beautifully decorated with a bird and heart print. It looks both elegant and stylish. When I first opened up the planner I was suprised as to how well everything was set out. Inside the planner there is a guide showing you needed to plan the perfect wedding. The guide has six tabbed sections with card and plastic pockets for easy storage and reference.
The planner has an undated calendar, space for guest lists and important contacts, bride, groom, bridesmaid, best man and usher measurements, a budgeting sheet with all the different things you need to buy or plan so you can keep track of your costs and space for your present list plus much more.
The planner is priced at £19.99. I didn’t even think about using a planner like this when I first started to organise our big day as I didn’t think we would need one with our wedding only being a reasonably small occasion but after a closer look I have quickly realised that I would easily forget to include a lot of things that we would want or need. Or I would more than likely lose one of my many lists that I so love to make for everything. The planner is ideal as you can keep all your wedding related items together. It isn’t too big so can be carried around with you if needed too. I am hoping that by using the planner my big day will be planned and organised with very little stress. I shall no doubt keep you all posted of our developments.
