Everything. I have basically all of my decisions made so all of the contracts are there (I have a backup on the computer too), I put my pictures, layout, etc. Anything really related to the wedding is in there. I keep a running total of the budget in the front so whenever I open it I know what I’ve spent and what the total is up too etc. Thats been hugely helpful. I’m on a tight budget so adding 100 dollars here and there really adds up and its great to see it all laid out. I love love love my binder because I like just being able to reference everything. As you move forward in the planning you’ll see what you need and what you don’t. Mine has been so helpful to me, when the wedding is over I’m going to keep it but turn it into more of a scrapbook kinda thing.

Mine is organized like this:

In the very front I have Calendars:
Yearly calendar & Monthly Calendar – with important dates highlighted.
Week of Calendar with Out of Town town arrivals, dinners etc.
Day OF Schedule

Then tabs with the following sections:

1. ATTIRE – Includes info and photos for dress, earrings, rings, hair flower and recipts. Grooms attire & Family attire (we have no bridal party)

2. CEREMONY – Decor for the ceremony, venue contract, music choices and the scematic for the venue

3. RECEPTION – Table decor, catering contact/menus, floral recipts and images, music choices, venue schematic with table layout

My guest list & budget are both online so I can update it consistantly and I also have google docs with names and addresses. Plus I have a huge “Wedding” folder on my desktop with images and artwork, so I only keep a few things in my binder.

I also created DIY Sheets that look like this to keep my projects organized. They have images of the project and then a supply list along with instructions.

I’ve mostly used mine to store hard copies of contracts and important emails. In the beginning of the plannign process I also put a lot of brochures and such and then have weeded out as I go along.
