Wedding Wednesday’s : It’s time to get organised /22

Being-more-organised,-2015,-resolution,-wedding-planner

Ok so when I spoke about my resolutions and aims this year, the biggest one I set myself was to become more organised. So this was an excuse to get some cute stationary, while I plan my days away and the wedding. So my filofax finally got delivered yesterday, and it is super cute. It’s from Kikki K which does the cutest stationary my only flaw against them was that because they are an Australian company I had to pay £20 to get it released from customs at Parcel force. Extortionate, but I guess it isn’t overly there fault. But the cuteness is worth it.

I am totally old school went it comes to keeping track of everything.  I had the same filofax for 5 years while I worked and while I was at uni, I decided to upgrade last year but couldn’t find one I liked, so just made do with a disposable diary for last year. Then I came across this. I suppose because so much of our time is based on our phones and laptops, tracking the ever growing technology and social medias it sometimes nice to just write down appointments and track your daily life using pen and paper. I find having a cute outlet, will make becoming more organised easier.

So I know this post isn’t overly wedding like, but as well as my daily planner I have also got a wedding planner, but it’s not your typical one.

So as some of you know, Richard proposed to me in Italy, read it here, and a couple of days after, we were walking around a little town when I came across this small little book shop where the woman working there was making books in front of you. So I have seen the cute planners going round which helps you plan your wedding but I kind of liked the idea of buying this book, in Italy where we got engaged, makes it that little bit more special no? The paper used is just beautiful and I am in love with the marble cover.

So I haven’t filled it up too much, as we all know my pace for planning, but I thought i’d show you the first page which has a polaroid of me and Richard taking the day after he proposed, taking in the same little town where we brought the book. I think regarding my way of executing this book, I am doing a more scrap book idea, something that maybe our kids in the future, would like to see, and a memory keep of my slow but hopefully fabulous wedding planning..

Perhaps as a goal for me I will show you guys a page a month, just to prove I am planning…

 

Enjoy your Wednesday’s all

WEDDING WEDNESDAY’S WEDDING STATIONARY 08

It’s crazy to think I have been doing Wedding Wednesday’s for 2 months now. Are you guys enjoying it? Is there anything specific you want me to touch on? Send me an email or leave a comment.

I am really enjoying it, and looking forward to visiting some venues in the next month or so. It’s a little difficult as we are across the country from where we will be getting married so for a 3 hour + drive, ideally we are going to do like a mini road-trip of venues. Something I am so excited about. I feel like once we have a venue booked it makes it very real…you know?

 

Anyway the topic I have been looking into to today is stationary. I am a sucker for stationary, like I’d quite happily have a notebook for every hour of the day…Anyway stationary is such a fun topic you and your other half can talk about. It’s not just journals, although primarily that’s what I am looking at today. But save the dates, invitations, thank you cards, table charts and such!! Oh the stationary.  I brought a lovely binded journal from Italy which I have been making notes in, but there are so many cute journals out there.

This journal which you can get from Not On The Highstreet which is by Sloane Stationary is classic and clean. But costing £45 you may not be able to afford one for every hour of the day…

This wedding notes book from Kikki.K is awesome, and the rest of the stationary available is insane!! And they ship internationally! WOO.

This looks amazing, and from Etsy and at only £7.50, this pocket planner is perfect for little notes you might take along the way!

Another amazing Etsy find, which sadly doesn’t ship internationally yet (just the states) is from Haute Papier . A 3-monthly subscription service where you get paper goodies. Its looks amazing, and I await/hope of the day they ship to the UK. Great as a possible inspiration for wedding stationary.

 

normal_best-man-to-be-notebook

Possibly a nice gesture for the best man? I think this is awesome, but I think Richards plan involves more beer and maybe a few emails. This is from Not On The Highstreet and is by The Green Gables.

normal_bride-and-bridesmaid-notebook-set

From Not On The Highstreet too and also by Green Gables. This is a cute idea for maybe the maid of honour? Great idea for when your going to all the wedding vendors together.

 

I might be seeing a possibly DIY journal post coming on soon…ooo the excitement!

 

Speak soon
