@lululime:  Welcome to the Bee! In order to “tag” someone, you click on (reply) (I JUST figured that out yesterday, and I’ve been on here for a few months lol)

Fiance is VERY organized (probably a tad on the OCD side, but I love him anyways!) and insists that we keep organized via google docs spreadsheets! It’s been working out great so far! My Maid/Matron of Honor is also a wedding planner, so she’s helped us keep on track of the timeline of events (i.e. what we should have done by 8 months prior, 7 months prior, etc) thus far, and it’s been very very helpful!

@lululime:  First of all, welcome to the Bee! Don’t ever feel silly about sharing advice…even “newbs” can have some great tips! πŸ™‚

I will second your Google Docs post. It was especially helpful for Fiance and I during the majority of our planning. I live in our hometown, where our parents live, and he was living 5 hours away (he will be home for good on Friday!!). We kept track of our guest list, addresses, a calendar for scheduling appointments, copies of surveys that couldn’t be saved digitally…Google Docs saved our lives! It was also helpful because we were able to share it with both sets of parents. This way, everybody was able to stay in the loop. We just had to give them a few lessons on how to access documents :-).

Plus, if I’m out and about and need to see a document, I can pull it up on my phone, lickety split. I took a class all about Google Tools last summer…very informative!
