I love spreadsheets, haha. I have guest list, expenses/budget breakdown, reception food menu and cost (all I have to do is change the number of guests), savings/budget, must have photos, notes from my best friend’s wedding (DOs and DON’Ts), contacts, day of timeline, and many more, haha.

I did! It was great. Had one for guest list/addresses/thank-you note manager; had another for budgeted costs and actual costs; and probably another for timeline/day-of details.

I literally had 13 google docs worth of lists and spreadsheets. It was the only way to keep things organized!

If by “abusing” you mean “making excellent use of a badass tool” then yes, yes I am.

And yeah, I just called Excel badass.  Because I’m cool like that.

@Waitingbee57:  Me too. I’ve got a workbook with sooooooo many tabs. Invites, STD, favors, welcome bags, RSVPs, budget, bills, balances, timelines, vendors and so on. Oh my but it’s just so fun. I can do it for hours!

I did everything on Excel. 

Never had one of those giant binders many of my friends kept for their wedding planning.  DH is also a spreadsheet lover, so it worked great for both of us.

Yes!!!! I love excel and use it for everything.  I have a massive timeline for the entire day for each person and thing involved on the wedding. As well as a huge planning sheet with deadlines leading up to the wedding and everything I’ve ever done wedding related is in there.
