In today’s super high-tech world, there’s no greater organizational tool than your phone! There’s an app out there for just about everything, including planning your wedding. Here’s a run-down of some of our personal favourite wedding apps that will help you get your big day on track.
Wedding Happy is one of the best free apps for busy brides/grooms who want to make sure they stay on top of everything they need to do. With this app you can easily create your wedding plan by setting tasks and deadlines, tracking payments, adding vendors, and more! You can also see how far into the planning process you are. It’s easy, clear, and completely customizable.
If you’re willing to spend $9.99 you can also get a premium upgrade, allowing you to add a second planner to your account, export vendor and payments lists and more. They also guarantee a refund if you don’t like what you get, which is rare for a paid app!
Platforms: iOS and Android
Pinterest may not come with task/payment/progress features, but it’s the perfect place to collect inspiration! As wedding professionals, we know how valuable images can be at communicating your vision, which is why we encourage our clients to create a Pinterest wedding board and share it with us so we can get a feel for their style.
Pinterest allows you to create multiple boards – whether public or private – to cover each aspect of your wedding, such as flowers, food, decor, etc. You can even upload your own images from sample meetings, or your own sketches, which will be a big help when it comes down to making tough final decisions!
Platforms: iOS & Android
The Knot has a few apps to take care of your wedding needs: The Knot Wedding Planner, The Knot GuestBook, and The Know LookBook. With The Wedding Planner you can set individual budgets for each expense, browse inspirational pictures, track your vendors as you narrow down “the ones”, and create a task completion list. The GuestBook is a simple website creator and guest list tracker for tracking guest invites and RSVPs. With the LookBook you can browse images sure to inspire your direction, find the stores that sell the products, share them with your wedding party, or save them just for you.
