I love the pages--both pencil and pen write so easily on them, and pencil erases easily, too.

I stumbled upon this book by accident while browsing through wedding help books at a local bookstore. This book stuck out from the rest of the organizers because it was conveniently small sized (the more popular ones were rediculously gaudy and huge). I looked at a couple other small organizers, but they didn't quite add up to what this book is. Shawne's Instant Wedding Planner is laid out in a way that helps you gather your thoughts in a logical manner, helping to organize even your mind. She starts out with having you and your fiance jot down your scattered thoughts about various wedding subjects (dress, catering, wedding party), followed by a chart where you can decide exactly which details are most (or not) important to you, and then she moves on to budgeting, then to shopping around, and everything you need to do leading up to the big day (with options, tips, and advice to help you along the way). She covers virtually everything you need (so nothing's left out on your special day), and her advice and tips are extremely helpful. I especially love how she's down-to-Earth and considers all walks of life in her book. This book is perfect for what it was made for: planning a wedding in a short amount of time. A MUST HAVE for those who are rushing to put together their dream wedding. It was honestly a life-saver for me, I VERY highly recommend it!

This book is fantastic! It offers a very systematic, customizable methodology for planning a wedding that can be on-time, on-budget, and a reflection of you. While the first edition of the book was written for brides on a schedule (3-4 months to plan a wedding), this book is great for a bride on any timeframe, because it helps you identify your wedding priorities as a couple and then facilitates a priority-driven approach to planning your wedding. The result is a manageable approach to planning a wedding and suggestions on how to make your wedding unique. It has fantastic tools for sticking to your budget, slimming down costs, keeping yourself on task, and handling sticky wedding situations. It offers great suggestions on how to add style and flair to your wedding, without getting bogged down on specific details like the pros and cons of chair covers. So whether you are planning a simple ceremony on the beach or a 500 person party at the plaza this book will give you the tools you need to make your wedding planning efficient, effective, and dare-I-say, fun.

I absolutely loved this planner- it asked you basic questions about what you wanted for your wedding, even the small things that I never considered and would have totally overlooked. It helped you create your own reception floor map, to your receiving line, to the order of your wedding party. It keeps track of all the check list items. It really helps you to envision the big day! I also had the Knot wedding planner but the books were so big I couldn't carry them around. This was perfectly slim, great for taking notes, and light enough to throw in my purse when I visited vendors. Now I buy this planner for all my other friends who are engaged. Would highly recommend!

I came across this book in the bookstore and found it to be great even for those who aren't planning to wed in 6 months time. I have over a year to plan, but this book is wonderful! It has space to write down multiple venue options in order to compare them in one place. It has a place to start organizing the guest list and then an address section for the guests which includes whether you've received the RSVP, gifts, thank you notes and whether the guest has special needs (ie. food option for dinner). Also, the very front of the book is a place for all the contacts you will use on the wedding day once you have finalized your options throughout the book so it is convenient for the big day. I was very pleased to find this book. I've heard from several reviews that there isn't a book that does it all and I admit this is my second book (my other book is the everything wedding organizer), as it is specific to the wedding/reception and not to all the parties/events taking place before/after (ie. only one paragraph for the honeymoon and nothing for the showers beforehand), but for being wedding specific this small book has everything I need to make plans and finalize the wedding and reception.

While I had over a year to plan my wedding, I wanted the simplest wedding planner out there, and this one was it!

I didn't care for the full on check list in the beginning (I opted to use the interactive one on TheKnot.com), but the address listing page was super helpful! It included space for guests' names, address, phone number, e-mail, check boxes for a Save-the-Date, invitation, RSVP, a spot for the number attending, their gift, a check box for a thank you and blanks for their table assignment and if they had any special needs (super helpful since we had four guests who needed gluten free meals). I additionally loved the DIY/fill in the black aspects if you were going to DIY your invitations and such, which we did. It helped so much with wording. It also included a fabulous thank you check list, which left room for the name, the gift, the date received and if a thank you had been sent. There are also a lot of tips and tricks to help you out.

The book itself is spiral bound, which makes it easy to flip around and write in, unlike a lot of others. It also has pockets in the back to store business cards and other papers, plus the dividers are marked for you to stick post-its! It's also fairly small (smaller than most planners anyhow!) and measures 6 inches wide, a little over 8 inches tall and about an inch thick, the perfect size for a medium or large purse.

I would say I used about 75% of the book, and it provided useful tips and helped me stay organized during a stressful and confusing time. It could use a shot list for photography.
