{REVIEW} Luxury Wedding Planner

Happy New Year you lovely lot! I hope you enjoyed the Christmas festivities in December and are raring to go with planning your forthcoming wedding.

For those that don’t know, I’m getting married this year (eeek always the planner never the bride but not anymore!) and for Christmas, I was gifted the most beautiful hard backed, gold foiled luxury wedding planner book (thanks Mama!).  It is totally swoon worthy and bang on trend and opening it made me grin from ear to ear.  As you can imagine, being a wedding planner by trade, getting organised is always high on my agenda and this tool will do just that!

The gorgeous planners are the brain child of the lovely Mara from Blush and Gold, a luxury online wedding stationery boutique.  I’ve been avidly following Mara’s work for ages and saw the launch of the planners last year.  I secretly wished for a copy, so was really happy to  be given this little gem.

The planners come in a choice of designs from marble, plain, eucalyptus, blush, ombre and starry.  They are all just divine.  I was given the plain white book with the gold foil writing which totally goes with our wedding theme.

Perhaps you’re not due to tie the knot, but know someone that is – this would make the most perfect gift and look above at how they’re packaged – just dreamy!

I think the £25 price tag + postage is reasonable for this this handy, design led planner.  To purchase one of your very own, check out the online shop here.   Whilst you’re there, why not check out the plentiful wedding stationery designs available to personalise for your wedding.  Just gorgeous! Thanks Mara for creating such a cute book and thanks Mama for thinking of me.

Until next time…
