Christmas Wishes: Newly Engaged

Christmas is the perfect opportunity to ask for items that will make your wedding planning a little bit easier. Being organized will take away some of the stress, and here's how to look pretty while doing it:

Address Book: Consider this your best friend. Keep it in your handbag in case you run into a person you'd like to invite but don't have an address for. Love this one by Amy Butler.

Clothbound Classics: Nothing is more romantic than a classic British novel, in particular, Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. Penguin Clothbound Classics offers a gorgeous, old fashioned cover.

Stationary: You don't even know how many notes and thank you's you are going to write. Traditional ettiquette states that the bride to be's monogram or initial be present on the stationary, like this letterpress set from Austin Press.

Files: Between the magazine clippings, contracts and scrap paper full of ideas, you're going to need a file system, like the vintage patchwork accordion file pictured from Wisteria.

Planner: This is a must. The ultimate organization tool. Know when to send out save the dates, keep track of receipts, appointments, and most of all, this handy dandy little book will keep you from pulling your hair out. Love Mindy Weiss's Ultimate Planner in pale blue.

Picture Frames: Everyone is going to want to take pictures of the happy couple, particularly during the holiday season, and you are going to want to display them. Photo albums you will also need, but most people like pictures in plain site (unless it's the one from last New Years Eve when I fell into a bush).
