The Southern Weddings Planner
No, not the one with JLo and Matthew McConaughey (although that is one movie you should watch while wedding planning at least once). The wedding planner I’m talking about is one of the ones that helped me get the bulk of wedding planning done: The Southern Weddings Joyful Wedding Planner.
A Quick Back Story
Josh and I had a quick engagement: just six months! We knew what we wanted (to spend forever with each other) and when we wanted it (as soon as possible). We chose our date based on the fact that it’s the closest to our dating anniversary, November 30th!
But this short time frame made planning a hectic mess once the glow from being engaged slightly wore off. Fitting in an engagement party, showers, a bachelorette trip, and the everyday schedule of work mixed with finding a dress and squaring away all of the details in 6 months spells STRESS.
The Southern Weddings Planner | The Joyful Wedding Planner
Thankfully, my mom bought me the Southern Weddings planner (and the bundle that came with the cutest journal –see above–and a Southern Wedding magazine). The planner is full of helpful tidbits and timelines that I checked off diligently and read over and over again until I practically memorized them! Not to mention it’s beautiful and has “Love Never Fails” in a pretty gold foil script. Something that even 8 months into marriage, I need to remember.
This planner has calendars, checklists, budget planners, and cute illustrations to make the job of wedding planning not seem like such a HUGE task. It even reminded me of tasks that I might otherwise have forgotten.
If you’re looking for planners, this one earns 5 stars in my book and definitely earns it’s name (Joyful Wedding Planner).
