    Hi peeps

    Just to say hello, another neewb here.

    I've just started planning and realised how much there is to keep track of :) so I was wondering if it's a good idea to buy one of those book organisers or to go for a free online planner?

    Any suggestions?

    Hi welcome to the site, when are you getting married?

    You're right about there being loads to keep track of, I have no idea about online planners or anything - I have spreadsheets and stuff that I have done myself to keep track of everything.

    Hey thanks for the replies!

    I'm getting married in Oct 2013 so a fair bit to go :)
    I've decided to use both methods, a notebook and I've got myself a free online planner with WeddiGo
    I can't manage excell, I'm baned from using it at work as I always mess things up, I'll just use the notebook to jot ideas and sketch stuff but I do like the electronic RSVP & budget calculator from the online planner.

    I think I'll go and post a question about shoes now :wub:

    [sup]Welcome![/sup]

    [sup]I have a wedding planner I brought from work, which is helpful, but I do like to use a notebook too! I've never used an online one before so don't know about those I'm afraid.[/sup]

    [sup]I've attached a photo of my youngest cat, Lilly helping me with my wedding planning using my wedding planner book![/sup]

    Hello and Welcome. (i'm a newbie too)

    I have my own organiser. I printed out a list of what we needed to like:

    Venue
    Church
    Cars
    Rings
    Dresses
    Cakes etc...

    And I put a time limit of when usually these needs to be booked by.

    This is the front a lever arch file. I have dividers for each thing that needs to be sorted.

    I find it very usedul.

    Same here, I have been planning since February this year for August 2013 and as you can imagine it is packed full of ideas, prices and I also record everything I have booked and paid for or need to pay for. It's my bible and if I lost it I don't know what I would do!
