We couldn’t be more excited… and we couldn’t have found a better reason to get organized, clean everything, and get rid of a bunch of useless stuff we don’t need in preparation for little one’s arrival.

Needless to say, I knew a post about getting totally organized for your wedding would be a fantastic way to share some of my favorite ideas + inspire you, too. Read on to uncover six surefire ways to get (+ stay!) organized for your wedding…
6 Ways to Get Organized for your Wedding
1. Start with a Planner.
I’ll admit it: I’m a total list-making nut. I love carrying a planner, making notes, and crossing off to-do lists. Having a planner that’s as functional as it is portable is key. And, look for one that has a calendar view AND a weekly view, since you’ll have more space for writing.
