There are loads of great ways to stay organized while planning your wedding, but the new Wedding Organizer from Russell + Hazel seems to have everything you need all in one—sturdiness, style and organizing simplicity. For $75 you get a chic binder with section tabs, a planning notebook, adhesive notes and sheet protectors to hold everything from business cards to extra-long seating charts. Plus, you can download over 50 free templates on russellandhazel.com—from beauty worksheets to a day-of wedding checklist—that fit perfectly in your new binder.
From I Will to I Do's Anne Chertoff came up with the idea for the do-it-all binder after she couldn't find a product that held all of her inspirational magazine tear sheets, plus her practical contracts and information in a pretty yet functional form.
Aside from keeping organized with a binder, her number one wedding planning tip is to enjoy your engagement and the wedding planning process. "This should be the happiest time of your life and I'm not just talking about your wedding day," she says. "From the moment you get engaged till you get home from your honeymoon, you should be having fun—with your fiancé, your mom, your friends." —Cari Wolfert
