FI and I could not agree on a wedding planner when we looked at Barns & Nobel so I decided I could make one. I am putting together a binder wedding planner and these are the categories I have so far:
*Checklists (for each month up until the wedding)
*Guest list and seating
*Food, Drink, & Cake
Am I missing anything? I feel like I am. I have looked at a few online wedding planner print outs but none of them have categories.

I had the same as well as honeymoon, photography, Entertainment/DJ, Hotel/travel Accomodations, Transportation, pre-wedding events (shower, bachelorette party), DIY projects, favors, hair/make-up, stationary, jewelry section to hold ring insurance info/receipt.
I also made pockets within each section to hold all receipta, swatches, etc.

@Mz2handgrip: Thank you so much! I added a few from your ideas. I don’t know how I could leave out photography … I also added DIY and music.

@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
Dress and Accessories
Hair and MUA
Hotel Accomodations and Transportation (and morning after brunch)
Venue (we just had one and it also included food)
Gifts (for parents, attendants, etc.)
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!
