@realtreegal:  I logged on to The Knot and Wedding Wire, stole their sections and their checklists, printed them all out, and stuck them in a binder!

  • Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall

@realtreegal:  Even if you buy one you end up tearing the hell out of it and basically making your own anyway so smart choice!

 

Mine went in order of activities so:

Timeline/To-Do List (for myself and other people, like mistress of ceremonies)
Vendor Contact Information
Invitations
Photographer
Dress and Accessories
Hair and MUA
Hotel Accomodations and Transportation (and morning after brunch)
Cake
Venue (we just had one and it also included food)
Officiant
DJ
Gifts (for parents, attendants, etc.)
Honeymoon
To-Do List for when we returned for our honeymoon

 

I’m probably missing something because I’ve long since dismantled my binder but within each section I had the contact and payment information and any notes on what I needed to tell said contact person.  Then I printed off pinterest inspriation and put it in, for example, venue for decor for the reception.  I tried to make mine idiot-proof because I handed it over to my Mistress of Ceremonies when I showed up to the venue the day of the wedding and from then on she was running the show!
