planning - organizer book : what are you using?

Recommended Posts

So I purchased the Knot's Destination Planner & Ultimate Planning Organizer. I am not sure I really need the binder and am thinking of returning the organizer. There is a good deal of overlap between the 2 and overall, the organizer slants toward a non-destination wedding. What is everyone using to stay organized?

My FI is the king of budgets and spreadsheets, so I've found I haven't needed a binder. I looked online at the categories that typical weddings binders had an adjusted it for destination weddings. Then he made spreadsheet documents for each category documenting price quotes, contacts, due dates, etc. The documents are shared through an online cloud system to allow each of us to edit them.

I got the Ultimate Wedding Organizer as well out of sheer excitement lol Now in realize I don't really need it. It's just not really geared for destination wedding, I do find it useful to keep everything in one binder.

same here @@Linz1131 - in my excitement, i peeled the cover off the front and back so now i'm determined to use it. i do like the little ziplock case. i've been putting invitation samples and things like that in there. 

 

df is the numbers guy so we looked at the Knot's Destination Wedding Guide and copied that budget into a spreadsheet. @@riilokiiley - pinterest has totally become my everything for planning. i just use the binder for paper things like price quotes etc... since i can't return it. 

 

oh well, live and learn.  :rolleyes:  i should have listened to him (and my gut) and just created my own. :)
