How to put together a Wedding Planning Notebook
Before I was engaged I was looking on Pinterest for ideas weddings in general. I came across this one link that lead me to making this binder idea. I thought to myself that this was such a get way to keep everything in one place. Now I can't take the credit for this but I do want you to have this binder in your life!
I did change a few things that fit better with my wedding planning. You may also have to do the same - which I think is better so you don't have unnecessary pages.
Supplies I used:
Binder, folder, page dividers with tabs to write on, notebook, clear zip pouch, pen
Categories I have:
Important - vendor contact list, bridal contact list, timeline, emergency kit check list
Budget - I have worksheets that helps me keep track of how much the cost is
Ceremony - contracts, officiant contact info, music, decor, program, save the date/invite
Reception - timeline, music, decor, set up, menu, beverage, favors, food/cake, speeches
Guests - accommodations +guest list tracker
Attire - makeup/hair/dress for bride and bridesmaids, attire for groom and groomsmen
Photography - photographer contact info + contract
Florist - florist contact info, worksheet, contract
Miscellaneous - registry info + honeymoon travel details
I also have a clear zippered pouch that I hold business cards, pen, and anything that I get that is important. I also made envelopes for tip money and have them in there as well. This is such a great idea to hold the little things instead of putting them in the folder where they can fall out and get misplaced easily.
Tip money envelopes
I thought this would be such a great way to know in advance who you will be tipping. Inside the envelope I wrote on a little piece of paper how much it costs me and how much the tip should be. That way I know how much I have and how much I have yet to put in. Then come wedding day, just remember to take out the piece of paper and give the envelope to hair stylist/makeup artist/photographer/etc.
Very stress free!!
