20 Best Wedding Planner Books, Notebooks & Diaries

Unleash your inner 'Monica from Friends' with the wedding stationery to top all wedding stationery - yes, we're talking about wedding planner books.

Our big day wedding planner book

What's more useful: a printed wedding planner book or online planning tools? The answer is you need both in your wedding-planning life!

That's because the two things fulfil different functions. Online planning tools or wedding apps are about practicality - you get a simple way to sort out the logistics of your big day, such as tracking your budget and managing your guest list. 

With wedding planner books, it's about inspiration and emotion. Inspiration, because your notebook is a useful place to jot down those on-the-go ideas and thoughts, from the name of a wedding dress designer you want to investigate to a couple of colour schemes that came to you on your lunch break.

Emotion, because as any stationery-lover knows, it's easy to form a real connection with a much-used notebook; it's a real thing you hold in your hands; it starts to feel special.

What's more, your wedding book planner will become a lovely memento of the big day that you can refer back to when you're feeling nostalgic.

What is a Wedding Planner Book?

A wedding planner book is exactly that - a book that helps you plan your wedding! With lots to organise when it comes to planning a wedding, it is important to have a space where you can write down your ideas, plans and take notes of vital information.

Wedding planning book designs come in all styles and themes so you can choose one that is left blank for your own organisation, or a wedding planner book that offers prompts and guidance to the wedding day and beyond. 

Is it Worth Getting a Wedding Planner Book?

If you're planning on doing a lot of your wedding planning on your own, then getting a dedicated book to keep all of your appointments together is definitely a worthwhile investment.

Lots of wedding planner journals will come with sections to help you organise your thoughts, as well as dedicated pages to keep track of any inspiration that strikes, from what colour flowers you want to your preferred menu for the wedding breakfast.

Plus, you'll often find helpful timelines to follow, to help you stay on top of everything and make sure nothing falls through the cracks. There are so many wedding planner books available online that you're sure to find one to fit your needs and budget.

What's In a Wedding Planner Book?

If you prefer the sound of a structured wedding planner book over a blank notebook, then there are a few sections you can expect to see. There'll be pages dedicated to your guest list and keeping track of RSVPs, as well as ideas for wedding attire. In addition, there could be suggested timelines and schedules for you to follow, breaking down the coordination into more manageable sections.

Seating plan charts and budget planners are other helpful guides you might find in a wedding planner journal. As an added bonus, a lot of wedding planner books will have tips and tricks throughout to help you out.
