My life is hectic these days... full time work, full time school, and what seems like full-time wedding planning. I have a major need for staying organized at all times, and when I'm not I start to feel very anxious.
When I first got engaged I knew I needed to make my own binder to keep all of my vendor contracts, information, ideas, registry print-outs, budget info., honeymoon info., and business cards in. I used an old 3-ring binder I had already, went to Office Max and got some sharpie pens (highly recommend!), and an Avery binder divider pack. I also downloaded these wonderful templates from Russell and Hazel! It's nothing fancy, but it works for keeping the fiance and I organized during our wedding planning.
I splurged a little and bought this canvas tote on The Knot on sale for only $14! I love that I was able to personalize it with my soon to be married monogram and wedding colors! This tote sure comes in handy when I have vendor appointments, and I like that I will be able to use it throughout our planning, on our wedding day toting things around, and even after the wedding! :)
This is what the table of contents looks like, and the tabs.
The business card holder I already had which has come in handy keeping the many cards I receive organized.
Did you keep a binder or something similar to help keep you and your fiance organized during your planning?
