Use Pinterest instead of bookmarks, it keeps things visual :).

I have a label in my gmail just for wedding things, so al wedding emails go into that folder. I also have an excel sheet for guest lists, and also for costs of everything and how much has been paid for each thing. In the earlier stages, I also emailed myself different pictures and links of ideas. I’ve never gotten onto pinterest or instagram, so my email was my organizer. Another tool I used was the checklist on It was very helpful.

@agdluvstx:  i bought an AMAZING binder/organizer at Barnes ans Noble.. Also available on Amazon called “The Complete Wedding Planner & Organizer” by Elizabeth and Alex Lluch. It is a binder that even has a hold puncher and is separated by tabs formeach category (stationary, reception, ceremony, transportstion, etc). It also has pictures for ideas and timelines to keep you in track. Each tab has a folder too where you can put your own pictures or brochures. It has been super helpful keeping me organized because I hole-punch pretty much everything and put it in the appropriate place! I higly reccommend it!

I organize all my emails in a seperate folder in my gmail account labeled Wedding. It’s really easy to find any emails from vendors if I have to refer back to them. Also saves printing out a bunch of stuff I don’t need, but I know where to find if I have to.

I also keep several boxes I purchased from Ikea in a corner of our apartment. Everything wedding related goes in there, so if I have to look for something I know exactly where to find it. I keep all the contracts and receipts in a seperate folder for easy access.

I also built myself a deadline calendar. Each month has tasks that I need to complete. This saves me from rushing to get stuff done, and I can easily add tasks to the calendar. It also saves me from being overwhelmed, so I know I only have a few tasks to deal with each month, this has been a lifesaver in the planning process.

I have a giant binder organized into sections. We’re about 3 weeks into planning and its already full of stuff! I also have a folder in the pictures section of my phone called Wedding with all of my inspiration/venue, ect pictures. And finally I have a wedding checklist app that I update whenever I cross anything off the list.

  • Wedding: April 2013 has a GREAT checklist. I was one of the brides who regretted having a wedding planner but maybe a DOC would help take some of the day of stress off.
