Congrats on your recent engagement!

Tabs for dress, flowers, photographer, video (if appplicable), music – band/dj, paper – invites, programs, etc, cake, hair/makeup, and perhaps a tab for details, such as accessories for your bridal party look, reception, etc. You should also have a secure location for your vendor contracts once you start to sign them.

It’s actually really helpful to look at some planners at bookstores to get an idea of how to organize yours. Also, wedding books in general are organized chronologically in terms of timeline so those are good too. Also, do a search here on weddingbee and there are other posts for planners.

Good luck with your planning!

about a week ago i found this website which was really helpful, i’m currently using one of the checklists, you should maybe check it out because it categorizes ALL the things you need to do for a wedding and you could maybe have your tabs be those categories:

Mine are:

Basics (Budget, colors, etc)




Food (including alcohol & cake)



Invites/Guest list


Everyone sets them up a little differently. depending on what is important to them. Once you get started you’ll figure out what sections you need.

Also, I include my to do lists, a mega-sized wedding checklist, monthly calender and will add my registry once i’ve made it.
