A neat way to plan ahead
When starting to plan your wedding it can be overwhelming – there’s a lot to consider. So keeping everything in one place can help keep couples organised. Wedding organisers make the perfect gifts for engaged couples keen to crack on with planning as Brides explains:
“When it comes to something as intensive as wedding planning, it’s always smarter to be too organized than not enough—which is why even if you’re already keeping tabs on the different stages through an app or website, picking up a wedding planner book (or two) certainly can’t hurt. Unlike their digital counterparts, these books provide actual, physical space for you to write down your lists, highlight experts’ advice, and leaf through pages upon pages of gorgeous wedding inspiration.”
When it comes to luxury organisers, it doesn’t get much better than this Personalised Wedding Planner and Organiser by Martha Brook. Sporting a beautiful personalisation embossed in gold foil on the outside and tons of helpful hints and checklists inside, the planner offers a great way to make every day count from engagement to big day.
