I got this for myself a week after we got engaged. I am a scrapbooker and crafter but there is no way I could make my own journal and address all the questions/prompts they have in this book. It starts by asking a few things about dating, how you met, etc. then goes in to the proposal and what ideas you have about the wedding you want. There is even a section for wedding memories, after the wedding, the honeymoon, and 1st anniversary.
Not only is this a super cute idea all around the book itself is great quality. The cover is nice and sturdy and has an elastic band to keep it closed. There are thicker cardstock pages throughout that are pockets for pictures and small mementos and there is plenty of space to answer the questions. The layout is cute and fun!
I cannot wait for some of my close friends to get engaged because I will buy this for them in a heartbeat! Such a great way to preserve memories! And the best part is -- it's not just for the bride!

it was (check the boxes) magical, emotional, a blur, exactly as we hoped and imagined.
