    Hi Girls!
    I have been looking for a wedding planner/organizer (those big binders look so cumbersome!) and wondering which one is the most helpful?

      I got from walgreens this binder and it is flimsy and you can adjust it if you need to make it bigger! It is great I love it, it has 4 folders inside it plus regular paper and grid paper in the back. it is made by Mead and it is a five star. It is blue and the side has material holding them together. I hope that makes sense!

      I finally got the simple stunning weddings one, its orange and pink. I just liked the way it was organized.

        I bought one.. $20 something at Barnes and Noble.. have barely used it.. Here's what I did do though that's a life saver.. there's so much info out there. I made a structure of folders on my desktop all inside "Cabo". Hair and Makeup, Outfits, Cake, Reception, etc. Anytime I see a picture I love, it goes in there.. helpful tips get copied to a Word doc and put in correct folder.

        I also created a large document in Quark that I have sent over to my coordinator. The entire thing is too large to send at one time, 20 something pages, but my girlfriends and family have enjoyed looked at my "idea book" to see how things are going.

          I have about 5 different colored folders and I labeled them all. Like pink is dresses and on the inside i labeled each side, girls/me and put all my ideas and pictures in there. I have one for favors, decorations, and so on. Its way cheaper then the organziers.

            I just used a regular 3 ring binder with tabs for each vendor/subject. I keep all of my ideas, emails, receipts & budget summary in there.

              Honestly, I've found most of my stuff online and really haven't had the need for an organizer. I've filed and organized all on my computers!

                Ditto on the computer organization! I have no more room in my bag for any more binders!

                  I keep everything in folders on my computer too. I did buy a binder from Target also. Once I make a final decision on something, it goes in the hard copy binder. Like, one I picked my vendor, I moved the signed contract into the hard binder. That way, when it's time to go to MX for site visits and the wedding I have all that ready and with me. I am also going to print out the valuable emails and put them in there before the wedding.

                    I have a 13 pocket expandable folder which are seperated into "my dress, bm dress, flowergirl, flowers, other decor, groom/gm" etc! I throught everything in there that I rip out of mags or have printed from the comp. I also use folders on the comp. Every 6 six I clean it out.

                    My cousin gave me a wedding organizer and I haven't touched it!
