Planning a wedding is hard work – so much goes on behind the scenes to make that one day perfect. There are so many vendors, guests and parties that you communicate with and it’s impossible to remember everything while maintaining a job, friends and other activities. Add to that the complexity of 650 guests – not to mention stress on both sides of the aisle – and you have a tall task at hand!

Evernote helped us have a perfect wedding. Every vendor we met — from florists to the church all the way down to tuxedos — were fully documented. Every conversation, every picture, every receipt. The ability to take notes on your phone and the power of syncing to a Shared Notebook with my wife allowed us to easily collaborate and stay calm. “Check Evernote” became a frequent saying when we were meeting with vendors, guests and families.

Now when couples ask my wife and I for tips and advice, we simply go into Evernote and are able to give recommendations on the fly.

Evernote Everyday

The Evernote mobile app is the first app I recommend to anyone who asks. If I’m in a meeting and see people writing notes on paper, I tell them about Evernote. Life changing products don’t come around that often and when they do, everyone deserves to hear about it. My life has become more accessible than ever and I can directly point to Evernote for enabling me to further my organization skills and propel my career.

Juan is 27 years old living in New York City, working his dream job. He’s a startup enthusiast, loves technology and is the future founder of something awesome.

    Writing notes is different from taking notes in evernote. Any day, I would like to write notes in a notebook rather than type in evernote. If we want to store in evernote, we could take a snap or write in Moleskine notebook. I would prefer writing on paper/notebook and taking snap.
