I created a wedding email address actually. Then I created folders for caterers, photogs, etc…I also kept and still keep a very detailed binder. Once I narrowed down everything, got all the details, made decisions, etc. my binder turned into the contract keeper binder, I added in pics of the venues, an ideas sections, etc. It is now my favorite thing in the world. But honestly the BEST thing I did was create a yahoo account solely for wedding related materials, it keeps everything right at my fingertips and I don’t have to delete anything, I can always look back.

@June42011 – That’s brilliant!  I so wish I had done that…

The most useful thing I did for keeping organized was start a blog that only FH and I have access to.  I post ideas, venue profiles, reviews, menu options, photos, inspirations, to-do lists, etc.  That way everything is in one place, FH can look at when he feels like it (and it keeps me from sending him a thousand emails a day), and we always have one place for all of our information.

I have a ‘brainstorming’ folder on my ddesktop where I file away all visual & text inspirations.

I have a binder filled with excel spreadsheets (guest lists, budget stuff, etc).

I will be putting the ‘concrete’ visuals/texts in the binder as well when it gets to that point (as well as swatches & etc).

I will also use it for contracts.
