My friend and I have six girls between us who have grown up together and are as close as sisters. One of mine got married some years back and now one of hers is tying the knot my advice was to get a ring binder and keep everything wedding related in it. That way you can't say things like "where did I put that quote from the florist" because there's only one place to look! Anyway, in the middle of making this helpful suggestion I said - oh what the heck, I'll make you one, and this is it!
I covered a shiny black binder with pink scrapbook paper, adding an artistic torn strip along the bottom (her family will probably say why is it torn??) and I don't have to explain that the couple's names are on the front. I added all sorts of doodly stuff, leaving space for doodles of her own!
Inside the cover I wrote a list of tips for organising a daughter's wedding!! Had some fun with that bit ...
Then I made a series of pages with file tabs (cut with a Sissix die) for each section. They're labelled dress/suits, Cake, Cars, Church and so on ... ending with one at the back which says "stuff we hadn't thought of"!! I really had fun doing this and hope it proves to be worth its weight in gold, as well as interesting and distinctive to look at! All she has to do now is NOT lose the folder ...
