While apps and digital checklists are useful, many engaged couples may find that good ol’ pen and paper is the most efficient and organized way to plan their big day. The same goes for inspiration and planning tips—so much info is available online (especially on Brides.com!), but sometimes it’s nice to have a physical book to thumb through with your spouse or mom during the planning process.
That’s where wedding planning books come in. Many contain interactive checklists, so you can keep track of all your wedding to-dos, budgets, and guestlists. Others are chock full of helpful advice from experts in the industry like Mindy Weiss, Jung Lee, and Vera Wang. And many more are filled with gorgeous inspirational photos to give you plenty of ideas for your ceremony and reception, or provide space for mementos of your engagement, making them keepsakes for long after you say “I do.”
That’s why we put together this comprehensive list of the best wedding planning books to help planning your big day. Any of these ideas would also make a great gift as well for a friend or family member who is about to start the planning process.
Here, the best wedding planning books.
