    I don't think I've ever created more lists in my life.

    I have a Shopping list for clothing, reception, ceremony and gifts.
    Then I have a OOT folder (not bag) list.
    I have a honeymoon destination list.
    I have a budget list (how I make my installment payments)
    I have a DIY list.
    The pre-travel brochure info list.
    A vendor list (when I find something I like, I write it down for purchase later)
    A to-do list
    Can't forget the Guest List!

    This is how I try to stay organized but yet I am still going crazy lol.
    Am I the only one? Am I missing anything?

          I think my problem is not writing the list down haha. Gotta get better or writing something down and miss placing it.

            I have a "I'm The Bride" bag that I picked up at Michael's. In it is my wedding planner, an accordion type file folder, and all kinds of half-started/completed projects. The bag goes with me anytime there's anything remotely wedding-y going on, so that I always have my lists, my projects (in case I see something that can complete them, etc)... and so on. I feel like my wedding planning has taken over my free time... so I'm right there with you!

            You MAY want to add a 'to-pack' list. I have one, and I've been at Walmart before and seen something that was an AH HA! I need to pack THAT! moment. Just a thought!

                I've got all those list PLUS:
                - a separate playlist of music for each event (cocktail hour, reception,...)
                - list for guests' accommodations (arrivals, departures,...) on a spreadsheet

                I've been keeping everything on an 8gb jump drive (that's backed-up on my computer, of course) AND printing off website pages of vendors/items that I keep in a notebook. Soon I will have to make a list of what I'm eliminating because I don't have a limitless budget!

                  Ha ha, I love it because I have lists on my computer, in my purse in case I see deals when I'm shopping, and in my wedding planning book. Not counting numerous spreadsheets for various bugets. From looking at these posts I've realized there are more to come such as the confirmed guest list, song lists, etc.

                  Who ever said a destination wedding is easy?

                      YES! I know all about the lists, there's so much to do and it's important to stay organized and focused.
