Your Ultimate Wedding Planner

It brings me such happiness to be able to share with you the launch of My Little Wedding Book, your ultimate wedding planning guide, planner, journal and notebook all in one!

So what’s my story I hear you say? Well having personally experienced both the happiness & the hurdles of planning my wedding, I felt crazily inspired to create the book that I found myself wishing/crying for during that time. Fast forward one year later, many a late night, plenty of coffee, & so much love and support from so many amazing friends and family & VOILA! my Little Wedding Book was born.

This is your perfect little book that you can take with you on all your wedding planning adventures, to have by your side to support you in all the answers and advise you need. Every chapter starts with a guide, followed by tips, worksheets to complete and a notes section to jot down your ideas and facts to remember!

My Wedding To Do Notebook

Good Morning lovely ladies, I just wanted to share this little beauty I picked up in John Lewis, it is a wedding day planner, with tabbed sections, prompts, checklists and plenty of note pages for you to write your brilliant wedding ideas into. It also has storage pockets to stash away supplier business cards and tear outs that you wish to keep safe, as well as a handy pen loop to always have a pen to hand.

Planning a wedding can lead to lists of to do’s being written all over the place, so it is really important to keep a wedding notebook like this to hand, so when a wave of creative wedding ideas come your way you have somewhere to write them all down!

my Little Wedding Notebook

A wedding to do list has rather an interesting personality. Often difficult to find, sometimes  a part of a cryptic code drawing & mostly in several places at once…..fridge post it notes, diary scribbles & text messages.

It’s fair to say it’s about time to upgrade to a less frazzling method of recording your ever growing wedding to do list. Our recommendation is a devoted notebook with at least 2-10 pages dedicated to each wedding category……we know you have a gazillion brilliant ideas, to do’s & contact numbers to jot down, & these can now live happily ever after in one pretty space.

Smythson’s  Tying the Knot’ & ‘Wedding Planner’ notebook tick all the boxes on our wedding planner wish list & can even be personalised – a top engagement gift suggestion!

myLWB’s Best Wedding Planning Guide Book

If a sparkly engagement ring has kept you in a capsule of cloud nineness, you may never want to leave this cotton candy heaven. Sadly, at some point one has to embrace that butterfly filled question…’How do you plan a wedding?’

A common first sign of embracing this question would be a bookcase full of wedding magazines & a sad bank account…..but what if the smarter route is to buy a wedding planning book?

With the ‘The Secret Quintessentially Weddings Guide’ having just launched, we made sure to grab a copy to make our verdict.

guide book

Written by Sophie McCorry Day of Quintessentially weddings, this book is the key to unlocking the best wedding venues, top wedding providers & a black book directory of wedding fashion must-haves.

Filled to the brim with wedding planning tips, we especially loved the wedding flower guide, wedding dress guide & how to have your happily ever after.

So whilst a book may seem old school, it is a romantic & of course very helpful keepsake. Let’s face it, Wedding magazines are addictive, so we’d suggest a handful and a good wedding planning guide book to get you started…..no more butterflies, & a happy bank!
