I made my own out of an old binder and biner tabs. It works just as well and cost… well, nothing! Depends on what you’re looking for!

@Marlisle016:  I’ve seen ladies do the binders, OR if you have an Ipad, there are some amazing wedding planning apps for you to use!

One of my friends gave me one and I never used it. I preferred having everything on my laptop.

I just have a binder that holds all of our contracts, info, guest list, etc. etc. Nothing fancy.

I made my own.  The premade ones might not have everything how you want it.

I bought the big pink one and never used it. I did shove some papers and advertisements in it, though.

My mom gave me one after we got engaged. It’s pretty and silver, and she put our names and wedding date on the front cover, as well as some purple jeweled flower decorations. I don’t know how much I’ll actually use it for planning, but I think it will make a nice keepsake!

I wanted to buy one because they are so cute, but I decided they had so many useless stupid pages that they weren’t worth the money. I used weddingwire.com for my guest list, wedding website, budgeting, so much stuff and their associated app that I didn’t really need a binder. However I did buy a pretty 3 ring and a bunch of sleeves and made my own, that allowed me to rip out magazine pages and put them in the sleeves, as well as put in any printed contracts etc especially in the initial planning stages.

I got one for free at a wedding expo but I literally never used it cus I had a great budgeting thing on theknot.com and I prefered having links/files on my computer – Its more green to do a digital one as well so I’d recommend just keeping things neat and tidy on your laptop/tablet.

I’d use an excel sheet or something and toss the binder. Wedding binders aren’t my “thing”

@Marlisle016:  I’m using a plain old notebook. And checklists on wedding wire.

I have one, but I did it myself.

I used it while vendor hunting, to save all the information and ask the same questions to all the vendors. I also used it for dress shopping, inspiration for looks, and decor ideas.

Then I have a section for guests, which I also have typed up. I’ll replace it with a coming guest list and food they want when i’ve finialized all that. 

 

I use it because im a hands on learner, and i found that while I loved Pinterest, I couldnt see it the way I wanted to. A binder helped me do that.

I just use weddingwire to keep track of everything. I have a physical binder that our venue gave me. I put some stuff in there like copies of contracts and what not. But I prefer just keeping most of my stuff on my computer.
