I’m probably the exception.  My best friend, venue provider (her back yard), and awesome girl anything planner has insisted I need a wedding planner book, or (“sigh”) app, as I’m all “geeky” (she isn’t). :).  Book, forget it, app… looked at a few but they were for big weddings, we’re doing something small (25ish guests).  I toyed with a spreadsheet (I love them) but it just looked sloppy.

So I wrote a simple HTML page (bulleted list) and emailed the link to her and my Future Mother-In-Law (who wanted to be kept in the loop and is a sweetheart).  Really simple for code.  A list of all things and what we decided on, To Be Determined, etc.  When they replied with things to add or suggestions I could hear the eyes roll and my friend even said “you’re too funny”.  But hey, it’s who we are… she helps me with “girly” stuff, I fix her electronics… it all works :).

All digital! 

Inspiration and notes on Evernote.com (syncs with my work laptop, home laptop and iPhone, easy to save links/images when I come across something pretty). 

Guest list on weddingwire.com (so guests can RSVP online). 

Money stuff all in Google Docs (budgets, payment tracking, etc) that is shared between the 2 of us. 

Tasks in Asana.com (task tracking) so that I can assign and I get email reminders when I’m late (when, not if, haha). 

It works for me 🙂

My binder with pages I printed from russeland hazel.com.  Plus I use theknot checklist and I have a regular notebook.  I like to write evrything down… I am a planner so that is how I do it.  I also have a planning bio.

I have a cute little planning notebook I got at chapters for about $10. It has sections for everything including timeline, gift list, etc. But mostly I use my master excel sheet and google docs.
