I’m using it for the guest list…with Fiance and myself as editors, and it’s also coming in very handy for keeping track of who gives what gift! I’d highly recommend it!!

I’m using to collect addresses from people. I send them the email with the link in it. I love it! I plan to use it for a few other things.

We used this for RSVPs – worked great!  All the RSVP cards were going to my parent’s house in IN but Darling Husband and I wanted to know who was coming.  So we set up a Google doc so my mom could input “Yes” and “No” and we could look at it and be fully informed.  Worked great!

We had multiple giant excel sheets during planning too (addresses, thank yous, gifts received, initial guest list, etc)!  I love Excel.

I’m using Google docs for pretty much ALL my lists!  Guest list, budget list, vendor payment timeline and log, price comparisons – everything!

I like it because I can access the lists anywhere (specifically, work).  Also because I can send the lists to Fiance to review, my parents and my bridesmaids.  It’s very helpful!

I have used our guest list Google doc for everything. It has columns for the guests’ names, addresses, yes/no RSVP, food selection, Out of Town or not (to count the number of Out of Town bags we’ll need), which hotel they’ve chosen, what gift they purchased, and whether we’ve sent a thank you card. It’s awesome, and it means that if I’m talking to a vendor, I have access to my guest list information no matter where I am. I’ve also color-coded some of the cells – bright pink means that we still need to right a thank you card, and bright green means the guest is staying at the hotel where we blocked a room but the hotel doesn’t yet have them on our list for Out of Town bag purposes. This way, my fiance can glance at it and, right away, see which people are owed thank yous.

Lol! I’m taking a computer information technology course and we discussed google docs.  Some of the drawbacks are no security, google can disable your account and it’s very difficult to get that back (I had a running blog and they disabled it one day and I’ve since tried to get it back but to no avail), and you can’t access any of the stuff if you don’t have an internet connection.  Atleast when my power goes out I have access to my standard microsoft office.

Other than that, it’s free and pretty easy to use/share.
