I took a major break from wedding planning after I picked the venue, the photographer, the dress, the bridesmaids dresses, the band, the church, the caterer, and - is there anything I'm forgetting? There are quite a few more things on my list and now that 2017 is in full swing, I'm ready to get scheduling!
It's time to talk about what I use to truly keep track of my planning. Every bride to be is different, so not everything I'm deciding will work for you - and that's okay! Aside from my mom and my maid of honor, here are my two top planning tools:
WeddingWire App. A lot of brides to be brag about The Knot, but WeddingWire has really been an easy way to check off my to-dos. The bride's checklist is organized by month (based specifically on your wedding date!). You can delete any to-dos that you won't be using. I scratch off most of my items out of order, but that's just how I work ;)
My Wedding Planner. I have my hand in a few different apps and my own note in my iPhone. So, what would I need a notebook for? On a Target run, I came across a $5 wedding planner and thought what the heck! I purchased this book late in the game and would recommend it for a bride who has just begun planning. It has thoughtful questions paired with handy note space for every venue, every caterer, every band, etc. It's not incredibly frilly or gorgeous, but it does the job it's supposed to do - plan your wedding.
Calling all of you brides to be and newlyweds - what is your favorite planning app? xx
