Where are all my newly engaged brides at!? Springtime in Minnesota is slowly starting to emerge from under the piles of snow that we’ve accumulated this winter! (FINALLY!) And it’s getting me excited for wedding season to pick up again!
For those of you who got engaged over the winter and are in the process of planning a wedding right now, I want to share a handful of tips on wedding planners. I’m guessing some of you out there probably dropped a wedding planner in the Amazon cart before sharing the engagement news with anyone, and others have yet to spend any time even thinking about buying one. So for everyone reading this, I’m hoping there will be some value regardless of where you fall on the spectrum!
I can share from personal experience and from talking with other brides that being organized during the planning process will take a lot of stress off your shoulders! It will keep you laser-focused on what you really want and it will help ensure that you stay on top of your to do list too. The thing with ready-made wedding planners is that sometimes they’re missing components that would actually be really helpful for planning. So I’m not going to tell you which type of planner to purchase (that’s a topic for another post!) but I am going to give you some ideas for what to add to whatever you currently have!
PS if you have a planner that comes in binder form with room to add materials, you’re going to appreciate this list even more!
with love, Emily
