I’m (less than) 2 months out from my wedding and feeling incredibly disorganized. Granted, things are getting done and we’re just down to details. But I don’t have a master list of ANYTHING, ANYWHERE! I have a lot in my head (GREAT tactic), post its, calendar notes, paper work from vendors, emails and I know where everything is but I feel like I’m definitely going to miss something.
How did you stay organized near the end of planning? Thankfully, my Maid/Matron of Honor is very structured and LOVES doing stuff in excel (like, it’s fun for her!!) so she’s going to help compile all of my crap. Any other disorganized brides out there?? I feel completely out of control sometimes!

BurlapnLace: I’m kinda half organized and half disorganized. I tried to keep a 3-ring binder, but just ended up keeping everything in a file folder. You can keep your postit notes on it and shove important documents (like contracts) into it. You can write notes all over the file folder–perfect solution.

BurlapnLace: Oh the other thing I did was have a wedding tote bag. I kept all my ideas, paper that I had torn out and the file folder I mentioned above. Everything got shoved into that. I may have “lost” things, but at least I knew they were “lost” in that tote bag LOL

BurlapnLace: I finally made a giant list at about 2 months out and used my hall mirror as a white board. It was very satisfying wiping things off as they got done. It also meant that Darling Husband saw it every morning and it helped him realized shit needed to get done NOW!
