If there’s one universal truth to wedding planning, it’s that organization is key. Having a good wedding planner — and I’m not necessarily talking about the person, though those are really handy, too — will save you all of the headaches. Because a well-made wedding planner will have space for you to organize appointments, reminders, special dates, deadlines and so much more, they are really a wedding’s best accessory.
And for this, we love the wedding planners available at PurpleTrail.
Aside from having gorgeous designs that totally fit your theme and color scheme, a wedding planner from PurpleTrail includes a ton of features. With sections to help in each step of the planning process, these wedding planners will help you stay on track, on budget and (hopefully) stress free right up to the big day.
Wedding planning involves a copious amount of checklists, for everything from vendors to guests to gifts to stationery to decor and beyond. There’s a list for everything, and luckily, for everything there’s a wedding planner. Keep yourself organized with checklist points for all aspects of your wedding, starting at 12 months prior, 10-12 months, 6-9 months, 4-6 months, 2-3 months, 1 month, 2 weeks, one week, one day, and day after the wedding.
Mind on the Money and Money on the Mind
This USA today article cites The Knot in saying that 45% of couples who wed in 2017 reported spending more than they had planned on their wedding. Don’t let this happen to you. Stay on track with budgeting each and every last detail with the budget section in PurpleTrail’s wedding planners. Use the Budget Expense Record, Payment Tracker and note sheets to keep your bank account on track. Because there is life after the wedding, you definitely want to make sure you don’t start your marriage drowning in wedding debt.
The Gift of Organization
One aspect of the wedding process that can easily become overwhelming is the receiving of gifts and sending out the thank you notes for said gifts. Thankfully, PurpleTrail’s wedding planners have a section just for this. Keep track of where you’ve registered, the gifts you’ve received and from whom, and most importantly whether you’ve sent them a thank you.
The Dress, The Wedding Party and All the Rest
With additional sections to help couples keep track of alteration timelines for their wedding attire, gifts / attire / appointments with the wedding party and so much more, these planners do it all. Keep track of all the ceremony and reception details in one spot. Note all contact information, payments and fine print from vendor contracts. Key in your wedding day timeline, and make copies so everyone knows where to be and when.
An Eye for Design
Staying organized doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style. PurpleTrail offers dozens of gorgeous and customizable options for a style that is uniquely yours. Because PurpleTrail understands that a wedding is a deeply personal celebration, they want to be sure you love every aspect of it, from the moment you say “yes!” through “I do” and beyond. Purple Trail has all the tools couples need to stay organized during the wedding planning process, as well as gorgeous stationery to help get the word out about their big day.
