Katie carries …

Vera Bradley Sales Development Specialist Katie Witmer is getting married! This blushing bride-to-be is planning a gorgeous affair where she’ll say, “I do” under the Lake Tahoe sky this September. What’s more impressive than her plans? How organized she is! We asked Katie to share the contents of her tote so we could see her essentials for pulling off the perfect wedding ceremony …

Katie CarriesA Go Round Tote in Ellie Blue pairs perfectly with Katie’s classic style and offers plenty of pockets for her daily must-haves.

Katie Carries
Katie keeps a Mini Notebook with Pocket in Suzani handy for jotting down all those last-minute messages and details. (It’s all about the details.) She draws inspiration from Pinterest, Martha Stewart Weddings magazine and the assistance of her wedding planner.

Swatches, contracts and keepsakes are all conveniently corralled in her official Folkloric Three Ring Binder. Cosmetics and Jo Malone cologne (in Vintage Gardenia) are tucked in this Black Microfiber coin purse, while packages of almonds and Vera Bradley mints offer quick, mobile munching.

Katie always keeps her camera (housed in a Sweetheart Pouch in Hope Garden), Heidi sunglasses in Lemon Parfait and Turn Lock Wallet in Folkloric handy for whatever events unfold.

Will you share my special day?

Talk about adorable, Katie asked each of her bridesmaids to join her in the ceremony by sending them a Cosmetic Clutch in Sand (the color scheme of the wedding, along with other neutral tones), each filled with a hand-written note, a copy of the movie Bridesmaids, a framed picture of their dresses (from Anthropologie) and cookies from Cookie Boy Baked Goods with the date of the wedding frosted on top. Now how could you say, “no” to that?

    Good luck, Katie! We have much in common! 1) both named Katie, 2) I also got married in Lake Tahoe!, 3) We both LOVE Vera!! Where is your wedding and reception? We were married at the Riva Grill on the CA side, (small wedding), then we had our reception dinner at the top of Harvey’s. My sister lives there, so that is why we flew from Rochester, NY to Tahoe for our big day! Enjoy!

    I have the Ellie Blue Go round tote as well! I got it in a store, on the release date. I’m a romantic at heart and with my boyfriend talking about getting married (he is proposing in the fall *fingers crossed*), I got a life in progress notebook in Ellie Blue to jot down our favorite pinterest finds and other ideas!
