The Organized Bride


The best thing that the Bride can be in the months leading up to her Wedding is organized.  Honestly, read all the articles you want but the best advice is to be organized.  Have all your ducks in a row, know who needs to be where when, makes a world of difference.





The best place to start is with a binder.  Now, you can go out and buy one of these expensive binders to help you stay organized, or you can make your own.  I really prefer the make your own method, because you can have all the tabs you want breaking categories down into sub sections for all the balls you will have up in the air.

Get yourself to the office supply store, you will need a binder (in your colors), 3 ten packs of tabs, a 3 hole punch, sheet protectors, and business card holder sheets.  You might also want to go to the craft store to make it pretty.

Suggestion Tabs:

     Cake

Gifts
Guest List (spreadsheet with an RSVP column, print out a new copy each week)
Hotel (Block and Welcome Bag)
Licenses

Photography
Stationary
Venue

This is just to get your started.  Add tabs you think you will need as they come up.  In these tabs keep vendor contracts, menus, things you have torn out from magazines.  Everything you think that you might or do need.  Take it everywhere with you, wear it out.

You can do this.

Happy Planning
