    @Fruitypebbles193:  I had a binder that was devided by venue, officiant and ceremony, hair, makeup, transportation, etc. EVERY SINGLE VENDOR YOU HAVE!

     

    Then in the front was all contact information for EVERYONE.  

     

    I lived with it until getting to the venue on our wedidng day and turned it over to my mistress of ceremonies and told her who should be here when and if they weren’t she was to get on the phone and HUNT THEM DOWN.

     

    Don’t waste your money on the pre-organized binders, half of the stuff in there won’t apply to you and you’ll end up tearing it to shreds by the time your wedding day comes around.

    @mchitt329:  +1.  I did the same exact thing.  I had my master guest lists in there, everything.  For the day of the wedding I put all the contracts in the front and had my mom bring it, in case we needed anything from there.  

    I think it worked well, and agree the premade ones are horrible.

    I like the Russell + Hazel one; you can just print off whatever templates you think you need.

    I had an accordian binder and in that I had seperate folders for each “thing”.  One for “flowers”, “DJ”, “Caterer”, “Photog”… you get the idea.  I kept all contracts, invoices, payment info, lists pertinent to each item in its respective folders.  I also had a “master” chart that had everything listed out.  I did not have a DOC and everything went very smooth.  There were a few hiccups but those were not due to my organization.
