So you’ve said yes to their proposal and are now knee deep in vendor options. Where do you begin? How do you sort through the mess without missing out on the essential details?
A wedding planner!
You need something to keep you on track. Both for your sanity and for your budget. There are so many little details on top of the larger ones, that will need your attention throughout the booking and planning process and a great planner will be such a huge help when it comes to keeping it all straight.
Intrigued, but not really up for the big binder?
Me either. I’m a planner by nature and I carry a Kate Spade Agenda/Planner at all times, but I wasn’t really into the idea of lugging around a huge binder. Leaving it at home didn’t appeal to me either because I wanted something for when I was on the move. Something I had at my fingertips so that I could keep track of vendor options, what I had booked, what I still needed to do, and where I sat with my budget.
So how did I find all of that without the big binder?
I not only found a planner that was 100% free, but I found one that was available to me regardless of where I was, that was also eco-friendly – #forthewin!
