4 Steps: DIY a Wedding Binder

1. Find a binder that fits your style. Do you prefer a printed theme or a classic color like white, black or tan? Consider matching your binder to your planned wedding theme.

2. Adorn the front of your DIY wedding binder with embellishments, sticker letters or even a personalized note. These details will make the binder unique to your personality, style and upcoming wedding day.

3. Download and print the wedding binder printables of your choice. Hole punch the pages then decide how you want to organize and arrange them in the binder.

4. Insert the pages and add tab dividers for an extra level of organization. Pocket sleeves are also helpful to stick contracts, wedding invites, save the dates, dress fabric, florals, or other miscellaneous items to refer to as inspiration.

If needed, you can add to or subtract pages along the way. Prepare to plan for up to a year or longer, depending on your big date. There’s even a section to add additional notes, such as when you're working with a wedding coordinator.

These wedding planning checklists will help you plan your wedding from start to finish. They include checklists to keep you on schedule with a timeline, to stay on budget, keep track of invitations, plan your wedding attire, and list vendor information. The wedding day timeline will help make your special day run smoothly. Plan your reception with a seating arrangement list, menu planning list, and music & song lists. These also include a honeymoon planning checklist.

Whatever theme or organization style you choose, make sure your DIY wedding binder is uniquely you. Add or eliminate sections based on your special day and what you want as a couple. Planning your wedding should be fun, not stressful. Stay organized with these wedding planner printables and choose the design you love the most!
