I swear Mindy Weiss is the Goddess of Wedding Planner books!

I love that it is a 3 ring binder so I can put in and take out pages as needed, and that it has pockets to place all of the loose papers.

This portfolio is essential for anyone planning a wedding! It takes you from "where do I start" all the way through the minute details of planning your big day! Since I ordered the book, I have taken it with me to every meeting to record notes and make sure I am asking the right questions. The portfolio guides you through the process of planning your wedding, including extensive information about all of the decisions you will face and etiquette on how to properly handle a modern wedding. I highly recommend this book to any bride who wants keep her wedding planning organized.

I am absolutely loving my Wedding organizer! My fiance and I got engaged right before Christmas and the first thing I wanted was a place to keep everything together. This has been perfect! I love that it is a 3 ring binder so I can put in and take out pages as needed, and that it has pockets to place all of the loose papers. There is also a place for business cards and a plastic zip bag in the back which is quite handy. I would definitely recommend this fantastic resource!!

I love Mindy Weiss so when I saw that she came out with this I had to have it. It's incredibly detailed and almost like having a wedding planner walk you through all the steps. I myself did not hire a planner so this is really a life saver. Definitely recommend it!

I received this as an engagement gift from two of my bridesmaids and it was a life saver... even according to my husband. Wedding planning was one of the few times in my life I was punctual and didn't procrastinate. Thanks in large part to this binder. As much as wedding planning takes over your life, you don't always have time to do 100% off of the research suggested for your vendors and that's where this comes in. We had weekends filled with appointments and the only thing we had to worry about was grabbing this book and I know my basis would be covered as far as making sure I had the information to pick the best vendor. I used this checklist along with the knot checklist and my wedding was perfect!

Morale of this story: buy the book, it will eliminate worry for you and your groom and if you are busy looking for a picture on pinterest for your florist, your groom can grab it and ask questions! it's worth way more than the price of the book for the peace of mind it provides.

You might as well just go to Staples or Walmart and buy a regular old 3-ring binder and some divider tabs, print out the helpful info such as timelines and key questions to ask vendors from one of the thousands of places you can find them on the internet, and make your own binder. No it won't be a lovely pale shade of robin's egg blue that will make you look super cute and put together, but it'll do a better job!
First off, I come from a printing background so a lot of my complaints are more related to the planning (or lack thereof) that went into the actual production of the physical planner. My key gripes with this thing:
1) The tab pages are just cardstock, they're not laminated. As much as the typical bride is going to flip through this thing in they year or so leading up to her wedding, they need to be more sturdy. Similarly...
2) The 3-hole punched pages should be reinforced so that they do not begin to tear at the holes. Particularly the pages at the beginning of my planner are already starting to tear. I doubt they will hold up through my engagement.
3) The tab pages have pockets on them, but they aren't big enough to comfortably hold an 8.5" sheet of paper! That means that any papers I get from vendors or things I print off and want to file away in my binder need to be hole-punched. Okay, fine. Except...
4) The planner is pretty much just big enough to hold all the pages that it comes with when you buy it. Once you print out two or three proposals/contracts and try to file them away in your binder while you are in the planning process, you'll barely be able to close the thing. They should have added at least another 1/2" to the spine, maybe even a whole 1".

I'm sure I could say more but I'll stop there. That's my two cents... Don't waste your money!

I purchased this book from amazon about a week ago. For some reason the book never came in the mail and we needed the book right away. I had to go to Barnes and Noble and pay full price for this same book. While its listed that there is a seating chart on the descptions there isn't one. Best bet is to go on Weddingwire to find that and create a seating chart there.
The book it self is great, there are things my future wife and I never thought of. The planning and timeline and how to make a simple wedding for someone under a small $10,000 budget.

We look forward to filling in the pages as this book has been more then helpful.
It's too bad Amazon and the Post Office wasn't as helpful in getting this book to us on time as I will have to dispute the charge.

I got my copy of The Wedding Planner and Organizer two days ago. I'm already filling it with all the details of my special day. It is a well organized book with tabbed sections, each section also has a pocket on the divider so you can keep things from magazines/prints outs organized with each section. It is a full size binder so you can add extra pages if you need to but the author really thought of everything. It is very detail oriented and very through. My wedding is a year away and I'm feeling confident that I'll be prepared on the big day.
