Whatever you call it -- a wedding organizer, wedding planner or wedding binder --- it's important that every bride has something that will help her stay organized throughout the wedding planning process.
Your wedding organizer is where you will keep all your important documents: contracts, vendor and bridal party contact information, wedding inspiration and receipts.
Whether you buy a wedding organizer or create your own, make sure it has easy to read section dividers so you can find what you're looking for, as well as pockets, sheet protectors or folders to store loose papers like tear sheets from bridal magazines, printouts from Web sites, contracts and receipts.
Take your wedding organizer with you when meeting with vendors to show them what your vision is and what you are planning with your other vendors. You will also want to have note paper with you to jot down what you discuss.
You may also want to add an "If found please return to" label in case you leave your wedding organizer somewhere.
