I thought I was doing great with this whole planning stuff until my friend’s party the other day. Her aunt, who was hosting the party, recently got engaged and as we started gossiping she pulled our her wedding planner/book/notebook/three ring binder! I was totally dumbfounded. Does anyone have any advice on what type of a book to get?! I will not have a planner (just a DOC) so I’ll need to keep pretty good track of everything. Can anyone help or suggest a good brand?!

I ran out and bought one as soon as I got engaged. I was so excited to get started and had no idea what I was doing. Unfortunately it really hasn’t turned out to be that useful for what I spent on it.
If I had it to do over again I would build a custom one that I could add items to as my needs changed.
This website has every checklist imaginable available for free download (They also sell beautiful expensive binders etc if you are so inclined to use theirs).
If it was me I would start with downloading free checklists and then adding folders etc to a 3 ring binder. That will allow you maximum flexibility and be less expensive.
The timelines and checklists are the most important things IMO but you also want a place to stick your countless inspiration pictures.
These are the most detailed checklists etc that I have seen out there. I hope they can be of some help to you.

DerbyBride these are amazing! I’ve printed off the first 15 and am excited to use the back-to-school supplies (that all happen to be in cute colors and are on sale!).
Thank you so much!

I just have a binder with folder pockets. I downloaded the checklists from Russell and Hazel. Honestly, I hardly use it. I just use it to keep track of all the paperwork and inspirational pictures. But I’m glad I didn’t spend money on one. But I’m the type of person who every year buys a calander/planner and stops using it by March.

I have a blank book that I write ideas, quotes, themes, etc in and I rip pics out of magazines and print them off the computer – so it’s basically my inspiration board, but I can carry it with me. That thing has helped me plan and bring everything together. I also created a three ring binder with lists I downloaded and made myself.
