The workbook & organizer is nice and concise, offers a convenient means to track expenses, keep receipts, and plan the wedding, reception, and honeymoon with most all the details. The only section I wish were included that is missing is a gift registry section. This is a basic worksheet type planner, not a lot of details on each topic, but the companion planning book offers all the details without much room for worksheets - the two together make a very nice planner and organizer!
A Project Managers guide for weddings - excellent!
October 13, 2010
I purchased this book for my daughter who is planning on getting married next year. She and her Mom had been driving each other crazy trying to plan for the wedding. This book/portfolio puts it all together in one, complete,
step by step guide. Stress levels have gone way down.
I purchased this Easy Wedding Workbook/Organizer for a friend's daughter who is getting married in July, 2011. It is a very clever format w/ the accordion file on one side and the 200 plus pages on the other side. The hardbound style is very practical and there are so many well-organized tips about every aspect in planning a wedding. I would have given this item 5 stars except the ribbon used to secure the book was broken when I received it. I decided to just replace the ribbon at first, but then I thought a velcro patch (actually two 2 inch size sets in black on the inside flap) would be more secure. I picked up a $2.50 pkg of pre-cut velcro at a discount store and in a few moments, I had fixed the problem. It would be much better if this item arrived w/ velcro instead of a flimsy satin ribbon, but for the $9.95 huge discounted price from the original price of $24.95, I would strongly suggest anyone needing this type of wedding planner to buy it and then pick up some velcro patches like I did (about 2 inches) and secure the flap yourself. It's a most comprehensive guide covering every possible subject in planning a wedding! Easy to use and now, with my repair, very secure!
I purchased 2 of these planners, one for each of my 2 sons and their fiances. Both couples were very pleased with all the handy checklists and the accordian style file in which they can file papers and notes related to each of the major things they have to plan for for their weddings. This is an excellent value.
