We’ve been keeping a secret!! Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to create, write, and design the most helpful and versatile softbound wedding planner, just for you! First, we pooled together our collective knowledge of planning and photographing weddings, designing florals, working with vendors and couples, and of course, creative wedding trends. We considered what was missing in wedding planners and what we would have wanted for our own weddings. Each page was designed to both organize your thoughts and live long after as a treasured memento.
Today we are SO EXCITED to finally reveal our brand new Green Wedding Shoes x Erin Condren Softbound Wedding Planner! The planner comes in two different cover options, each lay-flat (and lefty-friendly!) and ready to guide you through the most exciting time of your life. In addition to all our practical advice, you’ll find tips to infuse your own personal style into the day because, in the end, that’s what we’re most passionate about. Helping you create a day that’s truly YOU without apology.
Do I need a wedding planner?
Planning a wedding means scribbled down notes, calendar reminders, a mind that’s both full of thoughts and not sure where to begin—even if you plan to hire someone to plan your wedding, there is still so much you’ll need to keep organized. Keeping a wedding planner will save your sanity.
We designed the perfect wedding planner.
We specifically designed a planner to hold your thoughts + appointments AND be a guide. To give you ideas AND inspire your own. To organize your life AND hold your priceless memories as you go. Our editorial team is made up of experts in the wedding field with years of experience from unique creative backgrounds. Not to mention, GWS has been on the cusp of wedding trends + style for over 10 years. We’ve also been brides, ourselves! So we infused all 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 coiled wedding planner. (We still have those and LOVE them!) This planner has been re-written and updated for 2020 with all new and current tips, ideas, and inspiration. That said, it’s meant to be timeless and can be picked up at any time—it doesn’t matter when you start planning!
What is the best planner for me?
The new Green Wedding Shoes x Erin Condren Softbound Wedding Planner comes in two floral cover 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 such a great deal.
Okay! We know you’re anxious to see inside, so let’s take a look at some of our most favorite features!
Create a Wedding Budget
One of the top questions we hear from brides is “How can I budget well for my wedding?” so we spent a lot of time making this super helpful. We found that most wedding planners offer outdated budget checklists, so we created ours with all the things a modern couple might consider for their day.
In addition to the practical checklist, you’ll find a guide with our tips to save on the big day without sacrificing the things you really care about. We’ll show you how to sit down with your partner and create budget priorities and even share our creative tips to help you save money where it matters.
Wedding Details To-Go in a Portable Softbound Planner
Here is a great example of where practicality meets making memories! Visiting wedding venues can be overwhelming with ALL the stuff. We created pages for you to keep important notes and jot down all the things you want + need to remember. The planner itself is 8×10 so it’s easy to throw in your bag and carry along for meetings and idea sessions.
We’ve got pages for literally every wedding detail, alongside our specialized tips to keep you on track and inspired.
A Guide to Writing Your Vows
Writing your vows is one of the most important things you’ll do in preparation for your wedding. Even if you don’t choose to write your own, they are The Words you’ll build your future life on and we thought it was super important to give you space and guidance to help you craft the perfect promises for your future!
Monthly Wedding Checklist to Keep You on Track
The monthly checklists are some of the most helpful features in the planner, giving you general parameters without being limiting.
18-month Calendar for Your Wedding Appointments
For the analog lovers, there’s an 18-month calendar included so you can see all your appointments and helpful dates at a glance.
Memory Pages to Mark the Moments
One thing we wanted to make sure to include are blank pages for you to paste in photos and memories. Trust us, you’ll want it all! Tape in receipts from coffee dates after touring a venue, photos of your small celebrations, and any other memento 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 comes with four total notebooks, a whole bundle for $32! Here’s what’s included:
Two Vow Books
Once you’ve used our planner to help craft your vows, write your promises in these books to read at the altar and look back on in years to come.
Lined Petite Journal
For all the swimming thoughts that need a place to go, for the lists that need to be crossed off, for the pure mental sanity…here’s a journal for that! We also love the idea of keeping a small notebook for a gratitude journal along the way. Wedding planning can be overwhelming but if there’s one thing that will keep you grounded, it’s finding the things to be thankful for as you go!
And finally, a book to hold all the moments. Because there will be a lot :)
We truly hope you find these tools helpful as you plan a wedding that’s uniquely you. Please tag us on Instagram as you use them—we LOVE to see how you use our planners IRL!
