For budget, the Budget Calculator on TheKnot.com. For everything else, a binder/day-book with pockets I can put reciepts in that has a calendar and a contact list. It also has a pocket sheet for business cards that has been great for keeping vendor contact info handy.

I have a file on my flashdrive dedicated to wedding stuff (people’s addresses and who I need to still get addresses from, the BMs dress options, the flower girl and boy and ring bearer clothing options) and a binder with dividers with different sections. I also e-mail Fiance anything I find online to have a backup location of information.

Excel. My fiancé and I are proficient spreadsheet makers (he’s leagues ahead of me, but I still know a few tricks) so EVERYTHING has a spreadsheet. And we’re keeping everything on Dropbox which means we can both change docs from our computers and can access them from our phones when we’re visiting family and they have questions. Lifesaver, really.

Yes theknot.com has been really helpful in keeping my wedding stuff organized. I have all my guests and buget in there. its nice now because we are getting replies that i just put them in my profile and it calculates how many people have accepted declined and have not responded. Also i got a wedding organizer book from Hobby Lobby. i love it and it has lots of pockets and place to put buisness cards as well as helpful information. Also has places to write everything from vendors to whatever other personal notes you want to include and has a Calander so you can keep up with what needs to be done when. it has been a life saver for me for sure!

Excel.

 

I kept our budget in there, all the addresses, and a running to-do list.

Evernote!  I’m all about having everything be digital/online and can’t stand paper.  For anyone not familiar, Evernote is an app offered on several platforms, including Android, iPhone and Windows.  It syncs in the cloud, so you can add to your notes on any device with the app (ipad, phone, laptop) and then access it from any other of your devices with the app.

So I can sit here on my work laptop and clip hair inspiration pictures from the web to show my stylist on my ipad, work on my vows and access them later to finish up and email, write to-do lists and be able to see them on my iphone when I’m running around, or on my ipad at home. 

The only drawbacks are that while it does let you do tables, it’s no Excel, so we use Google docs too.  We have shared spreadsheets there for budgeting, thank you’s and to-do’s. 

I can’t even imagine trying to deal with paper and a binder.

I’m a Google Docs fan as well.  I like that I can share the documents and access them from various locations.

I’m with a few other PP’s, I have an excel spreadsheet that has gotten me through everything and it is on my wedding flashdrive, where I keep anything and everything as well.

Most importantly, the flashdrive is always in my purse (and backed up) so if I am ever anywhere and need to access it, it’s all there!

Google Docs spreadsheets and word processing docs. Dropbox has also been great for saving and organizing inspiration photos and such.

100% – Excel.

I have multiple tabs in my Excel workbook and I’d be lost with it!
