Starting your wedding planning process soon? If so, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed just thinking about the budget, venue, guest list, music and every small yet significant detail that comes with planning a wedding. Having a book or binder to keep track of all the information and inspiration you’ll be compiling will help keep you on track.
With that in mind, I wanted to share with you this guide on how to make your own wedding planner. Not only is this super easy to put together, they also include three beautiful versions of each printable with everything you’ll need to plan the perfect wedding.
Whichever design you choose, each printable has a timeline, checklist, guest list, a general budget roundup and a detailed budget sheet, a vendor list, attire checklists, honeymoon itinerary along with other helpful tracking and customizable sheets.
Having a binder like this, even when you’ve hired a wedding planner or day-of coordinator, can help keep you at ease and inspired throughout the process. It’ll also make for a perfect keepsake of your wedding. Keep reading below to find how you can make your own wedding binder.

Step 1: Pick a binder that you love. Whether it’s in your wedding’s color scheme or has a cute floral design, go with something you’d like to keep after the wedding.
Step 2: Decorate the cover with your wedding date, initials or even a photo of both you and your future spouse. Use stickers, letters or get creative with some paint.
Step 3: Download and print your wedding binder printables. Hole-punch them and arrange them in the order that feels right for your wedding planning process.
Step 4: Add labels and dividers on your cover pages to easily locate what you need. You can also use plastic tabs to later remove them and have a clean binder after the wedding.
Step 5: Include a pocket sleeve to hold photos, an invitation, a save the date, fabric swatches and anything else you’d like to keep.
Step 6: Your binder is ready! Add any additional sections, sheets, inspiration, and notes as needed.
