Akamai Mother Of The Bride Wedding Planner Review

AKAMAI MOTHER OF THE BRIDE WEDDING PLANNER REVIEW

My daughter is getting married in 2022. I got her a Wedding Planner Book, Personalized Wedding Planner, Bridal Planner, Custom Wedding Planner” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener sponsored nofollow”>Purple Trail Wedding Planner so she be organized as she planned her wedding.

I quickly realized that I needed some place to keep track of everything as well, a mother of the bride wedding planning checklist or mother of the bride planning notebook.

My research led me to purchase and the Akamai Mother of the Bride Wedding Planner from Amazon. I chose the Rustic design from the many options.

Mother of the bride wedding planner book

Of course, I had to write an Akamai Mother of the Bride Wedding Planner review. I know I am not the only MOB who wants a mother of the bride planning book. I think this review will be very helpful for other MOBs looking for their own wedding planner.

I found that a lot of planners that were identified as for the MOB were just standard wedding planners with Mother of the Bride added to the title. Some were just journals with “Mother of the Bride Wedding Planner” on the cover.

The Akamai Mother of the Bride Wedding Planner was exactly what I was looking for and I hope this review will help you decide if it is what you are looking for to help your daughter plan the wedding of her dreams.

AKAMAI MOTHER OF THE BRIDE WEDDING PLANNER REVIEW

The Akamai Mother of the Bride Wedding Planner appears to have covered all the details that you might need to keep track of.

All the different monthly and weekly planning pages are spread out throughout the book. It seems like it would have made more sense to group them all together.

This was true of the different categories as well, venue, catering, etc. They had checklists for these things in different sections. It seems like it would make more sense to keep everything in one category together.

The pages are not very thick, so if you are heavy-handed with your writing it will show through some on the opposite side of the page.

Due to it being a paperback it is not very durable but it should last throughout the wedding planning period.

For the price point I think it will get the job done. It provides me with one place to keep track of everything.

I know some people like to keep track of everything online or on their phone, but I want to have something to write notes in and be able to take with me when we go to visit the venue and caterer and shop for dresses. It will also be a nice keepsake to remember this exciting time in our family’s life.
