As a bride-to-be, your wedding book will be your best friend, your ally, your personal assistant, and your directory all rolled into one. It will be your most important source of information with all the details and data regarding your wedding. There are pre-made wedding books available in the market and you would not have a shortage of options to choose from. However, it would still be better if you customize it according to your preference and requirement.
There are numerous ways you could do to customize your wedding book. For inspiration, read the list below.
Decide whether you would customize a pre-made or start from scratch
Of course, it would be easier if you can use a pre-made wedding planner book. But you would not be able to customize it as much as you want. If you will start from scratch, you could create a wedding book that would really suit your requirement and preference. You could start with a blank scrapbook and just customize the pages. When you choose the scrapbook, make sure that you purchase one that would allow you to add more pages if in case you run out or envelopes to keep copies of receipts, contracts, business cards, brochures, etc.
Decorate it how you like it
When you feel good every time you look at your wedding book, you’d feel more energized even if you have numerous tasks you need to accomplish for the day. Looking at something beautiful would also keep you inspired and would keep your mood in check especially if you have to meet deadlines. When you decorate it, put photos of you and your partner and any other reminder and keepsake that would remind you to be laidback and that you should not be stressed since you are preparing for the best day of your lives.
Organize it into sections
Since you would be dealing with a lot of things with regards to your wedding, it is understandable for you to be confused. But you could minimize the confusion by being organized. One of the ways you could be organized is if you divide your wedding book into sections, that way when you need to confirm about something with regards to the bridesmaid dresses and the groomsmen tuxedoes, you would not need to go through some wedding details and information about the venue or the menu since once section of your wedding book is dedicated to the clothes.
Have a checklist, worksheet, charts and schedules
You don’t have any idea how much coordinating you need to do while planning your wedding (that’s why some hire an event coordinator dedicated only to arranging all the logistics of their wedding). Your wedding book should have a checklist of the things you need to do, a worksheet for your budget and other expenditures, a chart for your seating arrangement, and a schedule of every participant for dress and dinner rehearsals, bachelor and bachelorette parties, etc.
After the wedding, you could also keep your wedding book as a keepsake to remind you of all the fun (and stress!) you had while planning for your big day.
