As promised I will do a few more wedding posts.  In all honesty, although Tim and I have been engaged for nearly 2 months, we barely have anything set in stone.

We have a lot of ideas and appointments but nothing is exact at this point.  Both of us are laid back and we don’t want to feel rushed planning a wedding.  Plus I (personally) think part of the fun of being engaged is actually being engaged and planning the wedding.  Not rushing, stressing and trying to get it all done in one night.  If you finished planning a wedding in a month, then you have a few more to do nothing.

We plan to get married sometime April 2015.

While I haven’t found a venue I love yet, we have found a wedding planner (person) that we do.  Hopefully between her and an actual book we will be good to go.

When I worked in Oswego, I used an Erin Condren Design planner to keep track of appointments, work and running.  It was perfect for doing that.  When we got engaged, the one thing I did want to do was order a planner to keep on track.

I was ecstatic to work with Erin Condren and they provided me a $50 coupon code to buy a wedding planner.  (my planner ended up costing 65 with shipping so I payed 15).erincondrenweddingplanner4

After receiving the planner, I immediately noticed a 10 off coupon (good because I’ll need a life planner when they come out in June), as well as sample stickers and some great quote stickers.  All of which I like a lot.

There are a few things I look for in any planner:

  1. A monthly calendar (more important then weekly for me, I like to see long term and things as a whole)
  2. Space for a lot of notes and writing
  3. A spiral binding
  4. Thick paper because I write in pen

Again these are things I like…maybe you don’t.

Here is the question I received when I had the life planner from coworkers:

Is it worth the price?

So much space for note taking.

So much space for note taking.

For an Erin Condren planner with shipping, it will be about 50-65 dollars.  Honestly, it is worth the price.  The planner has everything you need and it built for function.  I got so much use out of my life planner that I won’t go back to a target planner.   I have a feeling the Wedding planner will be the same way but I’ll let you know after I’m married (that is a scary thought).

A to do list.  I need that.

I don’t review a lot of products on my blog and I don’t review any products that I don’t feel strongly about.  I feel strongly that Erin Condren planners are worth their price tag.

That being said they have also offered me a 50 dollar coupon code for you.
