For our DIY wedding planner, we used an 8.5×11 three-ring binder — the printables work best in this size. Now is also the perfect time to collect bridal magazines and cut out any  inspiration you find in them.

To get started, you’ll need:

materials needed to build a wedding planner

  • Three-ring binder
  • SFLY printables
  • Tab stickers
  • Sticker letters
  • Sticky notes
  • Pens
  • Clear pocket sheets
  • Three-hole puncher

Step 1: Pick out a binder that matches your wedding colors. If you haven’t decided on colors, you can always go with a neutral such as tan or white.

Step 2: Add fun details to your binder cover such as you and your sweetheart’s initials and the wedding date. We recommend using sticker letters because they are easy to use, affordable and stylish. You can find them at any craft store in a variety of sizes and fonts.

Step 4: Insert your cover pages and add sticker tab dividers. Make sure you write the proper category on the tab. This helps keep everything in place and you can refer to them when needed.

Step 5: Include a pocket sleeve. This will help save any wedding or bridesmaid dress fabric you love, save the dates, wedding napkin ideas, ribbons and even some artificial flowers that may represent your bridal color scheme.

The great thing about personalizing your binder is that you can add as many sections and pages as you like, depending on what kind of wedding you’re putting together. Add a page to work out the wedding hashtag you would like everyone to use in their social media posts of your big day, or add a blank page to sketch out the perfect themed photo backdrop!
