i've got something fun this week:
what's in my wedding boxwhat is a wedding box?
ready to see what's in my box? (dirty..)
first is my coveted wedding binder. yes, it's pink, because that's just who i am! i keep all important paperwork in here such as our budget outline, vendor contracts and contacts, the guest list and preliminary seating charts. i also have extra loose-leaf paper for any notes i need to take, and a little pad for easily jotting down things when the binder is too big to carry. what can i say, i'm just an organized person by nature, so this isn't that crazy for me.
i got this engaged girl's wedding planner really cheap from some website i think. it's just a little calendar with stickers you can use. to be honest, i mostly just use my phone and some printed monthly calendars for wedding-related events, but i did jot some notes about things i need to accomplish each month. i might phase this planner out of the box, though.
wedding books. the one on the right, the wedding book by mindy weiss is honestly the best wedding planning book i've ever seen! it's so helpful to reference when i think to myself at night "i wonder when i need to order my invitations" or "what is the etiquette on ceremony seating?" honestly it has answers to the most random wedding questions you wouldn't even think to ask about. it's a huge book and it's fairly cheap on amazon usually. i do have other books because it's good not to limit yourself to one source of literature.
pens of all sorts; pencil, eraser, highlighter, sharpie. i forgot to take a picture of my white-out pen, which has been my savior on more than one occasion!

i hope you enjoyed the tour of my wedding box. how do you store and organize your wedding planning materials??
