im going to be honest. when borders book store was going out of business i was looking to buy their wedding books and planners like crazy. but i found not only the free wedding planner from that 1800 registry place but another site where i printed off planner sheets myself and i just put it in my own binder. the thing with the wedding planner binders you buy is that they can be too big sometimes. so what i did was combined the free planner info i got into my own binder personalized for my wedding needs.

so my suggestion to you. save the money on buying a planner. Youre getting all the same info in the free planner info you can print from the net like tips on what to ask vendors, checklists, inspiration pics, etc. 

the site for free planner sheet is bridesclub.com

@MrsDiddles: search google docs. You can use that to plan. And it’s pretty awesome.

my free one from 800 registry arrived today. I had already been given one that was purchased and let me tell you, the free one is so much better. I have sent the link to all three of my daughters and my ex husband’s fiance so they could order theirs. Even though my daughters won’t need theirs as of yet, 2 of them are in the talking stages with their boyfriends now. Why buy when it is free, save the money and buy something else.

None.  I used the checklist from weddingwire and organized all my inspiration in folders on my computer.  I also organized my email to have a folder for each vendor and set up rules to throw emails they sent me into those folders.  Some couples make a wedding email address and then share it for planning.

I used weddingwire to keep track of our guest list, invites, gifts, seating chart, etc.  It lets you export whatever you want to Excel which is really helpful.  I gave access to my account to my hubs so he could help compile addresses, and then later to my Maid/Matron of Honor who used it to make the invite list for my shower and get the addresses, without having to bug me.

The last thing I had was a purse-sized notebook for notes.

Honestly, the best is to just make your own. Get a big 3 ring binder and fill it with folders and protector sheets, and anything else you may need or want. Organize it to fit your needs, not a generic planner that doesn’t fit you.

@Ember78: Yep. Making on is some much easier and cost effective. Just cut out things you may need from magazines or even online.
