Wedding Planners: The Best Wedding Planner Books for Organised Couples

On the hunt for the perfect wedding planning book? We've rounded up the notebooks that will help you organise your day, as well as being beautiful post-wedding keepsakes

What's more useful: printed wedding planner books 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 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 planning 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 planner book will become a lovely memento of the big day that you can refer back to when you're feeling nostalgic.

That's why we've rounded up the wedding planner books that are as pretty as they are practical - the most stylish designs to help you organise your thoughts. Some contain prompts and advice to get you thinking about the planning process, while others have just blank pages waiting to be filled with your ideas.
