If you're planning a wedding, chances are you're entering uncharted territory. Not only are you about to make a major life change, but there's a ton to do, a lot of money involved and you want everything to be absolutely perfect. It's a total recipe for a huge meltdown — especially if you're a Type A personality.
So what do you do to save your (and your fiancé's) sanity? Girl, you break out that pen and paper and do what you do best: You make yourself some lists. Checklists help you get organized and make sure everything is in perfect order, so you can sleep soundly at night without a bottle of wine and some Xanax.
We've gathered more than two dozen of the best workbooks, checklists and wedding guides out there. Download them, print them, or just pin 'em to your Pinterest board.
Of course, we’ve started our list off with a bang. Who is Martha Stewart if not the Goddess of Gorgeous Weddings? Martha’s downloadable wedding workbook is free and free-king amazing when it comes to attention to detail.
