Before I got my IPhone, I really didn’t see what all the fuss was about. I could do everything I needed from my blackberry! (or so I thought!). Months later I have been introduced to so many great wedding apps that can come in so handy! I actually started a list of the ones I loved, when BAM! This list came out from Racked National! LOVE this!
Racked National put together this list of the “must have” wedding apps for any and every bride! Gift Registry, Guest list, Bridal Party, all covered here! Take a look! Of course Pinterest is highlighted on this list….. every brides (and wedding coordinators) guilty pleasure!
One that I found that I also love (that is not listed below) is called Wedding Colors. It is a fun colors app that lets you play with color samples to find a color scheme for the wedding. You can save the swatch, email it or use the app to find color inspiration! Take a look at that one also!
Most of the apps are free, so why not try them out?! Get some use out of that smart phone! 🙂
10 Must Have Wedding Apps!
Wedding Party, free: Think of Wedding Party as your own personal wedding Instagram and digital guestbook. Guests download the free app, then simply snap and status-update away. All posts will show up in a personal timeline, plus, you’ll get an email with everyone’s handiwork the next morning.
SimpleRegistry, free. For those brides who’s registry tastes cannot be confined merely to Crate & Barrel, SimpleRegistry lets the world be your wishlist. You can condense a several-store registry into one master list with this app and, best yet, use the barcode scanner to add any necessities you find along the way. Plus, you can keep it around post-nuptials, just in case you’re expecting to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet sometime soon (no pressure!).
Appy Couple, free: Appy Couple serves as a virtual social portal for your entire wedding party. You can create photo galleries, message your maid of honor in secret, and even pop a little virtual bubbly to get everyone excited about the big day. The cheerful graphics—think Kate Spade-esque templates for you to fiddle with—will keep you coming back.
Pinterest, free: If you’re planning a wedding and you’re somehow not already maintaining a Pinterest account, now would be a good time to start. Whatever bridal decision you’re making—color, dress, menu, location, flowers—there are about a million gorgeous images to inspire you.
Tiffany & Co. Engagement Ring Finder, free: Some brides-to-be like to take all wedding matters into their own hands, including the ring. No judgement here. This is our favorite of the many engagement ring apps out there. Like most of them, it’s limited to the brand’s own options, but Tiffany’s app is cool because it shows their rings in-motion and on a hand (one whose skin tone is adaptable). It’s got enough diamond porn to keep you drooling for days, and if a litte blue box is out of budget, you can use it as a springboard for finding more, ahem, affordable options.
The Knot Ultimate Wedding Planner App, free: This is the app that you want to download for virtual planning. You can track your errand progress with rewarding tick-off checklists, keep an eye on your budget, and find enough Pinterest fodder to sate even the most voracious pinner.
WeddingHappy: Wedding Planner, Free. This is another great planning app for those taking on all the planning duties themselves and feel a little overwhelmed by it all. Tell WeddingHappy the date of your big day, and it fills you in with a suggested tasks list calendar to keep you on track. And bonus: you don’t need to be connected to the web to use it.
Wedding Dress Look Book by The Knot, free: Another top choice from the folks at The Knot, this app is for the bride still undecided about what she should wear for her waltz down the aisle. The app is cool because it refines choices based on your body type and preferences.
Guest List Organizer, $2.99 (lite Version is free): This app is for all of life’s events, but why not hijack it for your big day? Keep track of who’s coming to your wedding, and afterwards, you can create a nerdy PDF with all your wedding attendance information.
Mr. Porter, free: Dressing yourself is one thing, dressing your date is a whole other ball game. Mr. Porter’s brand new style app has a ‘What to Wear’ section with specific suggestions for the perfect wedding wardrobe, along with a separate section that’s dedicated to helping you him choose the right suit. And naturally, you’ll be able to purchase anything that suits your his fancy with a swipe of your fingertip.
