I’m looking for a hard copy of a wedding list organizer. I know theknot.com and other sites have some really great lists online, but I’d like to have a planner that I can keep with me and make notes, keep track of things, etc. Our date is still a year out so I’d like something that’s pretty inclusive, too. Right now I’m looking at The Knot Book of Wedding Lists. Does anyone use this or have one they suggest? Or should I just get a daily agenda and make my own?

I would personally get a binder and make your own using ALLLLLL the different lists out there. Some have different items on their lists, so it’s nice to see the range of options. If you do go that route, I would recommend looking at the Russel and Hazel templates along with the standard ones on The Knot, Wedding Wire, and etc.

I agree with @Miss Otter – I use The Knot’s Checklist app on my phone which really helps a lot, but I also printed out a bunch of lists and created a binder & a Google spreadsheet. I also really liked A Practical Wedding timelines and checklists too.

I also like the Russell+Hazel templates, you can just print the ones you want off and ignore the rest. If you don’t want to get their fancy binder system (I splurged and did), you can just get a regular binder and tabs from Target or Office Depot.
I like Wedding Wire’s checklist, but I don’t think there’s an easy way to export it. It’s pretty easy to use, and they do have an app so it’s pretty accessible.
If you want to do things digitally, there’s a “Everything Wedding Organizer” template that’s available on Google Docs.

I used the Knot’s checklist online and just added a few of our own custom tasks (like ordering sparklers, ordering rose petals for the aisle, etc.), and it’s helped us stay organized! Having too many checklists stresses me out so I’ve loved just having one, and being able to access it from anywhere. however, when we first got engaged, one of my married friends recommended a wedding planner called “The Bride’s Essential Wedding Planner” by Amy Nebens:
I thought it was really helpful with the first stages of wedding planning, and it includes a long list of questions to ask each vendor – that helped especially when we were searching for venues! We had no idea what questions to ask!
However, I got tired of lugging a binder around and eventually went through all of those checklists and added things I needed to my Knot online checklist.
I also second Ms. Otter’s recommendation of Russell and Hazel checklists – that’s what our day-of coordinator uses, and she pulled one out at our meeting last week.
