A wedding binder is something that anyone planning a wedding needs. From receipts, to contracts, to seating charts, your binder holds it all. If you are planning a wedding, you probably have realized how fast those papers pile up.
Keeping them in a binder will save you a lot of trouble later, because everything is in one place. You don’t have a drawer full of papers to sift through, nor do you have to feel badly about keeping every piece of paper. It’s definitely a good idea to keep all your papers and receipts, because there has been more than one time where I have needed to return something or I didn’t receive everything I ordered. I would pull up the contract or receipt and scan them into the computer or take a picture of them and send it to whomever I needed.
Whenever you are entering into any legal contract, you should save not only the signed contract, but also your emails and conversations. If you need to dig them up, you know exactly where to look. When I started having problems with our venue, it helped to know exactly where the contract was so that we could prove our side. Sectioned tabs help with this, because then the binder is organized by categories to make looking for things even easier. Mine is organized into the following sections: ceremony, dinner, cake, centerpieces, invitations, guests, favors, and honeymoon.
