I've just been writing things down as I go but I bought a scrapbook to put any articles or photo ideas I find in it to help me organise them xx

I’ve got a diary for all the dates we have for meetings, a notebook for everything we have brought and their prices, websites etc... I had a Pinterest board way before I was engaged and found that useful. To be honest I did find my notebook more help as I take it everywhere. I will be doing a wedding book for a keepsake.
Good luck planning 😊

i bought a wedding planning book - hardly use it, its only use is to note down what we've paid deposits on and a 'to do list'.
H2B then set up an excel spreadsheet and it really helps !!

Mostly my head but I do have a lever arch file to chuck everything like contracts into. I am fortunate that I do a lot of planning in my job and my head is like a filing cabinet.

I'm all about scrapbooking. But this is a hobby of mine. I've also got an excel spreadsheet to keep track of things.

I've used all three - but I mostly find my excel spreadsheets the most useful

I use just a normal note book, it has everything in, from price lists to time lines. One time line is colour coded to things that need to be done between certain dates and is 2 years (on a monthly basis) and the other is a time line of the day (I would be lost without it) xx

I have a spreadsheet for my budget as it's useful for working out total costs and how much you have left to spend etc. I've also used a separate spreadsheet for my guest list and recorded addresses in one tab and acceptances with dietary requirements in another tab. Pinterest is fantastic for inspiration. I have a wedding planner to jot things down in as I'm going along. I've also made a scrapbook of ideas I like from wedding magazines. They are all useful for different aspects of the planning process.
