10 Best Wedding Planners UK 2022 | Busy B, John Lewis and More

Congratulations, you're engaged! There are very few things in life more exciting than planning your wedding, but let's face it, there is always so much to think of. From dress shops to caterers, florists, and car hire, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer scale of event organising. This is where a wedding planner is sure to help. And we don't mean a person running around with a headset, but rather a pretty book where you can store all the information you need. 


Wedding planners come in all shapes and sizes and can house notes, pockets for brochures, receipts, and even handy timetables to ensure everything is paid on time. With so many on offer, this article will guide you into choosing the right planner to help make your engagement and upcoming nuptials flow as smoothly as you always imagined. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy your big day.

How to Choose a Wedding Planner in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Pick a Size: Bag-Sized Planners Are Handier When Out and About
  2. Opt For Spiral Binding or Ring Binders for Longevity
  3. Choose Books With Tabs and Checklists for Better Planning
  4. Consider Keepsake Pockets to Store All Your Extra Information

1. Pick a Size: Pocket Planners Are Handier When Running Wedding Errands, A4 Stores More Information

1. Pick a Size: Pocket Planners Are Handier When Running Wedding Errands, A4 Stores More Information

The aim of a planner is to make life easier. When choosing, consider what size will suit your organisational needs. If you intend to take your planner to dress fittings and venues, you don't want something that is too bulky. Instead, look for wedding journals that fit easily into a bag yet can retain the information you desire. Mini journals are great for simple note-taking while larger A4 journals will fit more information.

2. Select Spiral or Ring-Bound Books for Better Longevity

2. Select Spiral or Ring-Bound Books for Better Longevity

With so much to think about in the lead up to your big day, you will be reaching for your journal time and time again. Even when the wedding is over, you will no doubt wish to hang on to your planner as a keepsake. Choosing binding for longevity, therefore, is very important. Spiral binding can withstand plenty of page-turning, even if you stick extra items in. Ring binders are also strong and sturdy.


Whilst traditional binding looks more elegant, it is not always the best option for a long life. During the planning process, you will acquire lots of paraphernalia such as leaflets and invite acceptances. Having a book that can deal with important items being glued or taped in may be the better option. That way, you can keep everything you need in one place. Traditional binding may split if your planner becomes too full.


Don’t forget the wedding favours!

3. Look For Features Like Tabs and Checklists for Better Planning

3. Look For Features Like Tabs and Checklists for Better Planning

When browsing a planner's features, look out for tabbed sections. By separating each segment with an easy-to-find heading, you can locate the information you require even when you are in a hurry. Most planners will have a section on outfits, guests, table plans, wedding venues and even budget, helping you to remember everything you need to ensure the smooth running of your big day.


Some planners or journals will go one step further with checklists, often breaking down your 'to-dos' into more manageable monthly chunks. By following checklists, you can manage your time so you don't feel stressed or overwhelmed. Plus, lists not only help you remember what you need to do, but they can also help manage budgets and cashflow.


On a budget? Check out these wedding dresses under £500. 

4. Choose Planners With Extras Like Pockets and Sleeves to Sort Through Your To-Do List

4. Choose Planners With Extras Like Pockets and Sleeves to Sort Through Your To-Do List

When you are collecting so much information, it can be difficult to stay on top of things — which is why some planners come with extras to help you sort and organise it all. Keepsake pockets or plastic folders are perfect for storing venue leaflets, potential menus, invitation designs and invite acceptance cards. Binding ribbons, meanwhile, can help mark where you need to be and elastic can help keep an over-filled planner closed. 


Another lovely keepsake idea is a wedding guest book.
