I have two suggestions to offer while planning a wedding. The first suggestion is to organize, and the second is to print your photos.
I offer these suggestions because I truly believe that planning a wedding is more than picking out bridesmaids’ dresses and choosing between chicken or fish; it unfolds a love story.
When the months of planning and making decisions finally come to an end and the day finally arrives, the couple’s story is unfolded, and friends and family get to know the bride and groom just a little bit better.
I am not a wedding expert, but I am a mother of the bride and have worked with many brides to make their wedding albums and I see the love on each page.
A WEDDING PLANNER IS A VALUABLE TOOL
I was so excited when I received Our Wedding Planner by Alda Ellis. Alda is a friend and professional wedding planner, and owner of Magnolia Hill, where many weddings have taken place. You can read about Magnolia Hill and Alda here.
Inspiration, Inspiring Photos, and Informative Chapters
Our Wedding Planner is a book of inspiration and provides couples with the tools they need to plan the wedding of their dreams.
The planner guides couples through each phase of planning, from the budget to the wedding reception and more.
Each chapter gives practical information and consideration and plenty of workspace for couples to write important information, such as guests’ and vendors’ contact information and plenty of pages dedicated to writing down notes.
For instance the calendar chapter has an extensive monthly to-do list to keep couples timeline on track.
Every chapter has beautiful, inspirational photos which give the couple a glimpse of the magical event they can plan. There are places throughout the planner to make notes and record important names and numbers.
Not only is the planner a valuable tool in planning, but it will become a treasured piece of the couple’s history together.
I can’t recommend this planner enough. If you are getting married or know someone who is getting married, it is a must have.
My Second Recommendation
Is to print the wedding photos.
Our Wedding Planner stresses how important it is to choose just the right photographer because the wedding day will go by fast, and over time, the details will fade.
The power to touch and turn the album pages is powerful, to witness a story unfolding from an engaged couple to leaving as man and wife.
My children love pulling out our wedding album and looking at the pictures. Like Our Wedding Planner, the album becomes a part of a family’s history and will be passed down to the next generation.
Not only does the planning bring together a beautiful wedding, but the results of all the hard work unites a couple for life and brings together family and friends!
