Wedding Planner Size & Cover Options
Our wedding planners come in your choice of two sizes: 6×8 and 8.5×11. The smaller size is perfect for taking your planner on the go. It fits neatly into your bag or tote while still being big enough to write down all your important details. The larger size works great for those needing to carry a bit more paperwork with them while offering more space for planning and notes.
With PurpleTrail, customers can also pick between three cover materials to best meet their needs. Our first option is an unbendable and durable hard cover that can be customized on the front and back. It’s the most resistant to long-term wear and tear and will hold up against daily use. Our second option is a flexible laminate cover that can be personalized on all sides – front, inside front, inside back and back. Our third option is a two-layered synthetic cover with frost sheets. Your design is printed on a waterproof and tear-resistant synthetic material and finished with a frosted sheet protector that lays directly on top. Our most durable option is our sewn bound/hard cover planners in which your design is printed onto a heavy cardstock material used to create the covers.
Our planners are also available as durable 3-ring binders, the perfect solution for people who like to add and remove pages.
Unlike other wedding planners on the market such as the Erin Condren wedding planner, we let you customize your planner as much as you want. PurpleTrail lets you choose from more than 200 professionally designed covers with wedding-themed artwork. Or choose one of our other stylish designs inspired by trends in fashion and home decor.
Each can be customized with your name, monogram or anything. If you’re feeling artsy you can always upload your own artwork in a PDF, jpeg or png file.
