This post is part of our three-part series on ways Evernote can be used to plan your big day.
Courtney is an event planner based in the greater Washington DC area, founder of A Sweet Soiree Events. Among the many types of fetes that Courtney organizes, weddings are her specialty—and she certainly plans a lot of them! Running such a tremendously creative business takes dedication and the most organized people out there. So, Courtney uses Evernote.
It is the enormous number of details that rule her day-to-day professional life that make her an avid user. From summoning catering numbers in Evernote on her Blackberry to syncing inspiration boards to massive amounts of web clippings, Courtney’s Evernote account gets a lot of use.
Why Evernote is a Wedding Planner’s helper
According to Courtney, using Evernote makes her feel much greener and lighter, and really, more dependable as all her information is centrally located and always available in Evernote. She’s been able to rid herself of paper almost entirely. She no longer has to save inspirational web images to a thumb-drive or computer. She is even able to save multiple layers of photography edits within her Evernote notes.
Like many wedding planners out there, Courtney is a blogger, sharing her experience and inspiration with the world. But she also reads around sixty blogs a day—saving any interesting or useful content to Evernote.
Courtney finds it so useful in wedding planning that she encourages her clients to replace the large binders and file folders (so often towed around by by planning-crazed brides) with Evernote to be able to access their materials from anywhere.
