There are templates now: http://t.co/ybnX34oH Tim Weilert June 13, 2012 at 1:29 pm my wife used theknot.com. also, she did all the planning, so the key is to marry someone who will only make you get the DJ. Duane Mullen June 13, 2012 at 1:24 pm Is there a date yet? Andrew Ferguson June 14, 2012 at 10:38 am @Duane: No date yet. Stay tuned to AFdN for all the latest updates though! Jan Boyd June 13, 2012 at 1:52 pm I love Evernote for planning of all kinds. If you google “evernote for weddings” apparently a lot of people use it for wedding planning. http://blog.evernote.com/2010/06/04/user-profile-kasey-fleisher-hickey-evernote-for-wedding-planning/ Kelly McDonald June 13, 2012 at 1:53 pm http://www.apracticalwedding.com, http://www.offbeatbride.com, http://www.weddingwire.com Katelyn Hackett June 13, 2012 at 2:09 pm 1) Barf at the Knot, unless you want to feel like you are the least craft-oriented, poorest, tackiest wedding-havers ever. 2) Yay at A Practical Wedding, which I have been reading daily for years and has lots of relationship-oriented stuff (haven’t found it super useful for specific planning advice, but that’s fine). 3) hire a wedding planner for a consultation to help figure out what you might need help with. This doesn’t have to be costly. They can also help the two of you and your families navigate what can be murky waters (differing expectations, levels of involvement, financial planning, etc) 4) Google Docs/Drive like whoa. We use it for the wedding guest list and to communicate about and manage our budget, both xls.

Every time I find something I like whether on pinterest or the world wide web I pin it to my wedding folder. It’s made it easy to find things. I also made a binder that I keep all of my wedding stuff in and I carry around a wedding notebook in my purse so that when I think of something I can write it down…. I love Wedding Chicks – check out their blog for inspiration http://www.weddingchicks.com — I’d LOVE to talk with you about my experience with wedding planning, it’s all so fresh 🙂 — Love ya! Carmel Pierce Boatright June 13, 2012 at 4:13 pm Seriously! Congratulations??????????????? Andrew Ferguson June 14, 2012 at 10:34 am Yup! Seriously! I sent Kurt a picture 🙂 Brooke Tummel June 13, 2012 at 6:55 pm Ps. Andrew when I posted that I thought that was Rachel who posted it….. Ha ha – send my love to Rachel!

But seriously, the Knot.com is kind of the big dog in the yard in all things wedding. It can be hard to navigate and for the most part, it does try to aggregate it’s own sponsored vendors, but it does have a lot of good resources. Elizabeth Bales June 14, 2012 at 10:47 am we built some things (rsvp site for example) for our wedding, I think now you could use things like google forms to do lots of the same things (for example using it to collect RSVPs so that you get a nice spreadsheet of who is attending). 🙂 I don’t recommend coding your guest book the night before the wedding though… it’s a bit stressful, and you might not catch all of the bugs… lesson learned 🙂 Comments are closed.
