Gone are the days where wedding planning took the form of hand-written sticky notes and an over-stuffed binder full of wedding pamphlets. There are now a whole host of handy wedding planning apps available that make planning the perfect wedding all that much simpler. Here are our top picks to help you plan and execute the wedding of your dreams.
WeddingWire is a free-to use wedding planning app that features everything from to-do lists to a library of over 200,000 venues and vendors that are contactable at the press of a button. This app is the ideal tool for people who are beginning to plan their wedding and don’t know where to start. It even allows you to connect with other couples for advice so that you can get real tips from people who have been through it before. It’s the closest thing you can get to a professional wedding planner without forking out for the real thing.
Prezola Wedding Registry
Creating a wedding registry is now much more flexible than it used to be. Gone are the days of single-store registries – you can now simply and effortlessly add the products you love from any website into a personalised list for your guests to browse. Picking what you like is super fun with this app as you swipe left and right on items that tickle your fancy and automatically add them to your registry.
Appy Couple is the perfect tool for keeping track of your guests and keeping in touch with them ahead of your wedding. While the app isn’t free, the customisable features it offers makes it completely worth the price. Appy Couple allows you to coordinate with your wedding website and manage your guest list by keeping track of who has RSVP’d and who hasn’t. It also allows for group communication so you can send out messages to your guests and bridal party before the big day and let them know about any changes. On your wedding day, attendees can even upload their photos onto the app so that you have all of the snaps in one place to share and show off.
This sleek app is divided into four main categories for wedding planning, namely: budgets, guests, suppliers and a to-do list. As a UK centric app, WeddingSite is the ideal pocket planner for brides. The budget planner uses the UK average wedding expenditure to give you a better idea of how much you should be spending on each part of your wedding based on your budget. It also has a growing list of available UK vendors for easy planning. By dividing your workload up into four sections, you are able to manage guests, keep on top of what needs to be done, be wise with your money and find the best suppliers all in one spot!
Another all-rounder app that is free-to-use and super handy is The Knot. The app allows you to create personalised checklists of tasks that need to be completed in the months leading up to your wedding – perfect for those who aren’t great at time management. You can also build and automatically tick off your guest list as attendees RSVP digitally. This is a far easier way of keeping track of numbers than traditional reply cards, which tend to get forgotten about in a drawer or lost in the mail. The Knot also comes with thousands of wedding ideas, so is the perfect choice for brides looking for both inspiration and a bit of guidance.
