We are for sure living in the age of technology. How, you may ask, do you know that for sure? Glad you asked. When middle schoolers are equipped with iPhones, it’s pretty clear that technology is absolutely ingrained in our culture.
While middle schoolers may be more interested in Snapchat than organization apps, odds are you use your smartphone for something more important: like planning a wedding. There are a ton of great apps to choose from to help you plan your wedding, but we figured we’d give you a starter pack with five must have wedding planning apps:
Appy Couple is an all-in-one app that helps you communicate with your guests, share photos, shop, get ideas, manage RSVPs, and more. The app has a ton of horsepower and can be super helpful in your planning process. One caveat: it’s not free. The “free” download is a demo so you can get a feel of how the apps works.
One of the best parts of a wedding is all the gifts you get! We’re joking, but Zola does make personalizing a registry really simple. You can upload photos, leave notes and stay up-to-date in real time. The app is easy to navigate, too. Done are the days of walking around Target with a scanner. Happy gifting!
Wedding Happy is a great free wedding planning app that will help you stay organized throughout the process. From vendor management to payment tracking to guest list help, Wedding Happy is worth the free download.
The Knot has an army of apps and sites that help you in every aspect of your wedding, but the Wedding LookBook is a great way to shop for dresses. You can browse and save your favorite wedding dresses and do the same for your bridesmaid dresses. The app can filter the dresses by style and color too, making it easy to land on one you love. Once you do, it will search nearby stores so you can go try it on.
Yes, we know this is a gimme, but Pinterest is still a great place to gather ideas, share them with your friends, and find inspiration. There’s a reason why this site has been around for a long time and is likely to stay. Pro tip: just don’t go too deep down the rabbit hole -- 30 minutes can turn into 3 hours very quickly.
Feel free to hit us up and pick our brains about what works and doesn’t when it comes to wedding planning -- we’ve been doing this awhile and know some “insider” secrets.
