A little organization will go a long way toward preserving your sanity.
First, buy a thick spiral notebook.
All of your notes will be in one handy place for easy reference.
This will become your constant companion from now until the big day.
Should you choose to purchase one that is divided in three or five sections, you have the space to be even more coordinated.
You may use these sections for contacts, actual plans and any other information you find useful.
In this notebook, you can: Make lists.
Keep track of your guests.
Jot down notes and ideas.
Organize addresses and phone numbers of caterers and the like.
Another lifesaving technique is to set priorities in order of importance.
Any part of the festivities that require a second party need to be planned for well in advance.
Depending on the time of year you have set the date, you may be competing with other brides, prom goers and holiday celebrations.
The sooner you begin contacting these people, the more options and better chance you have of shopping around for the best price.
Some second party individuals you may need to contact include: Church, public garden, art museums--the setting of your wedding.
Limousines and carriage services.
Disc jockey or band.
And don't forget your baker! Tips such as these will make planning your wedding run smoother and will ease organizational stress.
Having all you need in one handy place will keep you organized and on track.
