Her name’s Betsey. Isn’t she gorgeous? Okay, her name isn’t really Betsey. I mean who would name their wedding binder, right? ::sheepish grin:: It just so happens that I’m very proud of my binder. Look at all her pretty pages.
|Pardon my awful picture taking skills.|
It’s big and cumbersome but it’s also quite useful, especially for vendor meetings. Why ole Betsey came in handy during my florist consults. I put together inspiration boards for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. I also included pictures of the spaces. It was so easy to run through my “vision” of the day with the pages all laid out in order.
Of course I also keep copies of receipts, checks, invoices and contracts in the binder as well. I’m slightly OCD about things so I scan them, save them to the computer and print them out for the binder. I kinda like to keep 2 copies and the original. Because I am so compulsive and obsessive it’s easy for me to remember to add stuff into the binder.
Another great part of my binder are these checklists. I found them here, for free and they are super helpful. They cover just about everything. I maintain multiple checklists just to make sure I don’t miss anything. I know, I know it’s a bit much. ::sheepish grin::
