We kept a secret !! Our team has worked hard behind the scenes to create, write, and design the most helpful and versatile softbound wedding planner for you! First, we brought together our collective knowledge of planning and photographing weddings, designing flowers, working with vendors and couples, and of course creative wedding trends. We thought about what was missing in wedding planners and what we would have liked for our own weddings. Each page is designed to both organize your thoughts and live long after as a treasured keepsake.
Today we're so excited to finally unveil our brand new Green Wedding Shoes x Erin Condren Softbound wedding planner! The planner comes in two different coverage options, each flat (and left-friendly!) And ready to take you through the most exciting time of your life. In addition to all of our practical advice, you'll find tips on how to bring your personal style to life because, ultimately, that's what excites us most. We'll help you create a day that you really are without apologizing.
Do I need a wedding planner?
When planning a wedding, you need to take notes, calendar reminders, and thoughts that are both full of thought and unsure where to start. Even if you want to hire someone to plan your wedding, there is still so much to organize. Keeping a wedding planner will save your sanity.
We have designed the perfect wedding planner.
We have specially developed a planner to record your thoughts + appointments AND to be a guide. To give you ideas AND to inspire your own. To organize your life AND keep your priceless memories as you go. Our editorial team consists of experts in the field of weddings with extensive experience from unique creative backgrounds. Not to mention GWS has been at the peak of wedding trends + styles for over 10 years. We were brides ourselves too! So we put all of that knowledge into each page. It's the planner we wanted for ourselves!
If you've followed our collection with Erin Condren, this is different from our original wedding planner. (We still have these and LOVE them!) This planner has been rewritten for 2020 and updated with all the new and updated tips, ideas and inspiration. That means it should be timeless and can be picked up at any time – it doesn't matter when you start planning!
What's the best planner for me?
The new softbound wedding planner Green Wedding Shoes x Erin Condren is available in two options: Blush and Midnight Blooms. Our original coiled planner is $ 55 – this one is only $ 35! With all the new features and tools, it's honestly a lot.
OK! We know that you really want to look inward. So let's take a look at some of our most popular features!
Create a wedding budget
One of the most important questions we hear from brides is, “How can I budget my wedding well?” So we've spent a lot of time making this super helpful. We have found that most wedding planners offer outdated budget checklists. That's why we created ours with all of the things a modern couple might consider for their day.
In addition to the handy checklist, you'll find a guide with our tips on how to save on the big day without sacrificing the things that really matter to you. We'll show you how to sit down with your partner, set budget priorities, and even pass on our creative tips to help you save money where it matters.
Take away wedding details in a portable softbound planner
Here's a great example of where practicality meets memories! Visiting wedding venues can be overwhelming with ALL things. We have created pages for you to keep important notes and write down all the things you need to remember. The planner itself is 8×10 so you can just throw it in your pocket and take it with you for meetings and idea sessions.
We have pages for literally every wedding detail, as well as our special tips to keep you posted and inspired.
A guide to writing your vows
Writing your vows is one of the most important things you will do in preparation for your wedding. Even if you don't choose to write your own, they are The words You will build your future life on it and we found it very important to give you space and guidance so that you can formulate the perfect promises for your future!
Monthly wedding checklist to keep you updated
The monthly checklists are some of the most helpful functions in the planner and give you general parameters without making any restrictions.
18-month calendar for your wedding dates
For the analogue lovers there is an 18-month calendar so that you can see all of your appointments and helpful dates at a glance.
Memory pages for marking the moments
One thing that we really wanted to consider is blank pages to put in photos and memories. Trust us, you will want it all! Take receipts of coffee appointments after visiting a venue, photos of your little celebrations, and other memorabilia along the way!
AND we designed a vow book set!
We were on a roll and couldn't stop there – and how cute are these ?! This set contains a total of four notebooks, a whole package for $ 32! The following is included:
Two vow books
After you've used our planner to create your vows, write your vows on these books to read at the altar and look back on the years to come.
Lined petite journal
For all the floating thoughts that need a place, for the lists that need to be crossed out, for pure sanity … here's a journal for that! We also love the idea of keeping a small notebook for a gratitude journal on the go. Wedding planning can be overwhelming, but if there's one thing that keeps you grounded is finding the things you'll be grateful for when you leave!
And finally a book for all moments. Because there will be a lot 🙂
We sincerely hope that you will find these tools helpful in planning a wedding that is unique to you. Please tag us on Instagram while you use them – we LOVE to see how you use our IRL planner!
