Apps to Help Make Planning Your Big Day A Breeze
Wedding season is a magical time of the year. But planning for one can be a frightful process that you shouldn’t wish upon your worst enemy. Let technology put your mind at ease, and focus on enjoying the day with the love of your life.
Here are the wedding apps we have fallen in love with:
Organization is key for planning any wedding. With Evernote, you stay organized and on the same page with your significant other and everyone else behind-the-scenes of your wedding. Share your notes with others, assign to-do items that you need accomplished and check off items as you go! It’s an easy, intuitive app to stay on top of all the wedding craziness.
The chaos of planning a wedding can be overwhelming. Cozi helps you stay on top of everything. It is a shared calendar app with a healthy abundance of alert options to keep you — and your spouse-to-be — ahead of the game. While this app won’t quell all of the stress (wouldn’t that be fantastic?), it at least allows you to take a few deep breaths every now and then!
Do you want to manage every possible detail for your big day? Well, Pro Wedding Planner does it all. Create your own augmented reality by uploading images of the reception site and decorate the room on your device to see what works and what doesn’t. The app lets you create your own seating plan, track RSVPs, to-do-lists and budgets all in the same place.
Appy Couple allows couples to create a personal wedding site and app to share important travel, lodging and event information with guests. You consolidate all the information about your wedding into the gorgeous, customized website/app — your one-stop shop for your big day. There is a $35 one-time set-up fee, after which your guests download the app and access your site for free. Guests also add photos through the app, with filter options and unlimited storage to boot. It’s the ultimate companion app to digitize your beautiful betrothal!
WedPics is considered the #1 photo and video app for weddings. The app allows you to keep all of your wedding images taken by friends and family and create your own digital album. But WedPics is much more than a simple picture app. The Accommodations feature allows you share address and map information, making arrangement booking quick and easy for traveling guests. Also, share the location and dates of all wedding events leading up to the ceremony with the Events feature. Last and certainly not least, link your registries with the app to help guests get the perfect wedding gift. WedPics truly is the ultimate wedding app to fall in love with.
Instagram should be an integral part of your wedding. With Instaprint, you print your guest’s photos on the spot as they are taken. Set up the rented printer at your reception and guests print their photos, having the cherished memory instantly in their hands. Why not make the photos a source of entertainment at the reception? Use Instaprint’s projection feature to stream a live feed of images to any screen or projector. Pretty cool, right?
Once you return from you honeymoon, Thank You notes are often the dreaded aftermath of your wedding day. With Gracious Eloise, you type handwritten letters with whatever you would like to say, and they print them and mail them to all of your guests. It still has that personal touch, but is quicker and a lot less painful.
The stress of your upcoming wedding can be daunting. With Pocket Yoga, brides and grooms choose from three different practices, difficulty levels and durations. Pocket Yoga has audio and visual instructions, allowing you to choose your personal music to play through your session. It’s perfect for taking a deep breath and relaxing through the stress.
Zola is a useful digital solution for curating a registry. The site has a Tinder-like feature, where you swipe right to add an item to your registry, or swipe left to pass it up. Also use the app to scan barcodes of whatever you might want to add, to include cash and honeymoon requests on your wish list, or even enable guests to pool their funds together for big-ticket items.
These wonderful apps ensure that your big day is as magical as you’ve always dreamed. And, while you’re working to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch, let us take some of the stress away and keep your mobile device protected with a case from OtterBox.com.
