Agreed!!  I thought I was good with the tools I had been planning to use — mostly Excel and Google documents and other Google applications but as soon as I found Martha’s tools I fell in love like thefuturemrsjohnson. I especially love the idea of a "party" as a family — that tells you how many invitations you need! 

Enjoy and happy planning!

WOW…I just checked it out and it is the best by far.  I absolutely love the program.  It has everything I need and this would make planning my wedding a lot easier.

I like weddingwire.com! I also have a pink binder I got from xmas tree shop, with seperators, etc.  I have a scanner at work so any material that comes in the mail I scan it and put on a jump drive (my binder got to be overflowing!!).  I have various folders on my jump drive….flowers, djs, photographers, etc to keep everything organized on the jump drive.  The jump drive is also great for when your surfing the web and find pictures of things you like cause then you can right click and save the image on your USB jump drive!

TheKnot.com has a similar planning feature, too.

I go to Knot.com and marthastewart for inspiration, but when it came to organizing my guest list, I went with Google Documents. You can use their spreadsheets to keep track of everything, and allow anyone else with a gmail account to view it or change things in there (level of access you want to grant to someone is entirely your call, which is great). I’ve been able to keep it all together, and my parents and Fiance can go see it whenever they want. That’s one thing MS and knot can’t offer. I guess it would work fine if you let the others have your login and password to these websites.

WeddingWire, TheKnot and Martha Stewart all have free tools.  Martha Stewart also has this great online seating tool, so you can set up your tables.  It’s great!

I am using weddingwire.com as well. The tools on Martha Stewart are actually provided by weddingwire. Another great tool is Evernote.com I have a wedding planning notebook online & I use Skitch (I have a Mac but you can use SnagIt on PC) to clip pics from the internet & keep notes on every category. You can share the notebook with others by sending them the link which is helpful when communicating with vendors online. Evernote keeps your notebook online plus you can download the desktop app & iPhone or BB apps. Evernote is free or they have a premium version for $5/month. I don’t work for them, I swear! I just love it that much!

I love martha too. My favorite part of her site is the seating arrangement program. Planners charge a lot of money for this.

Nice! I’ll still have to get a paper and ink binder because, well, I like paper. But! The boy will be happy to have online tools since he syncs EVERYTHING up between his phone and his computer.
