My wedding story:
I got engaged in December 2008, and immediately started planning my wine country wedding. I had never even looked at a bridal magazine or blog, so I had no idea where to start. I got a few recommendations from friends about blogs that I should be reading for inspiration, and also took to Flickr and Google. I started clipping images that I found on various sites—of bouquets, table settings, bridesmaid dresses, etc., which is how I primarily used Evernote (I also use it to clip recipes, make shopping lists, and snap photos of wine labels—all of which contribute to my food and music blog, eating/sf). When it came time to meet with vendors, I’d usually whip out my iPhone and scroll through my Evernote notebook with them, as opposed to lugging around a big binder (I never had one!). It was great to be able to have all of my little inspirations with me at all times—especially when I had a last minute vendor meeting, or was in a store trying to find matching ties to my bridesmaid dresses. In the end, Evernote really helped me piece together every aspect of my wedding—from the dresses to the flowers and the color scheme.
