Organizing Your Wedding Inspiration

I am in love with the Springpad website!

Last week, I was talking about meal planning on my personal blog, and one of my readers recommended Springpad.

It makes me weak in the knees!

I can find recipes online, add them to my list of recipes, and then create a shopping list, depending on which recipes I want to cook for the week.

But I can also use the site to collect and store ideas. For example, I created a list for "Wrapping Ideas." Every time I see a cleverly wrapped package, I can store a link to it. That way, when I need to wrap a present and am looking for some inspiration, I can simply click through the links in my list.

It seems like it would be a great tool for wedding planning. You could create whatever lists you needed, like rings, attire, decorations, ceremony scripts, etc. and collect everything in separate centralized lists. Hooray for centralized lists!

Yes, it's similar to bookmarking in your internet browser, but in Springpad, you can share your lists with others, and it seems less overwhelming.

And the site is completely free!

Okay, enough with the exclamation marks...(and, by the way, no one is paying me to say this...).

Yay! I've been looking for something like this for a long time. A place to jot down ideas when they occur to me.

Thanks for sharing it!

One of the best things about springpad is that you can link it to your smart phone. It is so nice to have a to do list and have my phone give me little reminders... sweet!

I use Evernote, it's very similar and can be used on your smartphone, too. :)

I'm with Sara - I've been using Evernote for weeks now and have a notebook dedicated entirely to wedding inspiration. Every time I see something I like or find a website that might be useful, I take a clip of it and paste it into Evernote, tagging it accordingly. So if I want to look all my dress inspirations, I just click on my dress tab and they all pop up. :D
