I asked you guys in an Instagram stories poll if you would like to see some wedding posts here on F&F before the big day, & 100% who voted said yes! So here we are, starting a new series rightfully called: Wedding Wednesday. With our special day quickly approaching (less than 150 days!), I am working on getting organized & staying on track with the budget & the timeline. I have dreamed about planning my wedding for as long as I can remember, & now that it’s here…I’m finding that it requires a lot of organization. That right there is not really my forte, but I’ve found that with the proper tools, wedding planning can be fun & stress-free.
I am very picky about planners. I tend to just write all over the pages instead of following their prompts because I feel like I need something different. As my search began for a wedding planner, I felt very unsatisfied by the selection I was seeing. Therefore, when I was contacted by Kayla aka The Internet’s Maid of Honor to try out her system of planning, I was delighted to give it a try. She made this planner after she got married because she felt the same dissatisfaction as I did, so I hoped this would be just what I needed.
Guys. it’s perfect! Not only is it so helpful & well thought out, but it’s beautifully laid out on page after page in such a way that I know I will love looking back on it even after the wedding! It’s such a great tool to help keep me on track with deadlines & to know what comes next. Also, it let’s you dream & document your inspiration process which is oh-so important to me.
Let me show you how I use it…
Instead of binding my pages like a book, I chose to keep them in a clip-folio. It’s a clipboard on the front, where I display current to-dos & inspo, as well as a pocket for my other pages & notepad on the inside. I’ve loved this setup. It’s easy to use & beautifully displays everything.
The entire planner is over 200 pages long! Which is amazing! One of the best things about this planner is that you are able to pick & choose which page you really want to use & order them in a way that makes sense to you. It’s printable, so if you need multiple of any particular sheet, you are able to have as many as you need! For example, there are wellness sheets that help you track your food, fitness, water intake, etc., that I have printed out specifically for the week of the wedding to ensure I’m taking care of myself during the preparations. But, if you wanted them for the duration of your engagement, you could use them daily or weekly or as a goals sheet monthly.
There are lots of blank sheets with headlines for inspo in a variety of categories. On these pages, instead of writing or drawing my thoughts, I decided to cut out inspiring photos from all the magazines I’ve been flipping through over the past few months & create mood boards, if you will, for each category. Not only is it so fun to do, but it’s so nice to have visuals right there in front of you while you’re planning.
