Planning in Style

As a wedding and event planner, having a notebook and planner on hand at all times is an absolute must. When your day is filled with visiting different venues, meeting with a variety of vendors, and keeping track of your clients' needs, it is easy to forget a lot of what went on that day. Although we can't live without our notebooks and planners, sometimes that plain ole' yellow notepad and black leather planner clashes with our otherwise appointment-ready appearance.

So, how do we solve this fashion dilemma? We take it to Maybooks.

This amazing website allows you to custom make your own "book". All you have to do is choose your favorite pattern from a plethora of swatches, add a monogram or a name (choosing from different fonts, styles, and colors), choose what you want on the inside (maybe you want an agenda, calorie journal, lines, or just blank pages?), then you're able to preview your masterpiece!

Here are some of our favorites:

So many to choose from! Create your own at

It's all about the right attitude. Buy umbrellas that match your color palette, and see it as an opportunity for a playful photo shoot with your Bridesmaids!
