7 Best Wedding Planning Apps
Described as ‘the wedding app that gets you down the aisle’, WeddingHappy is great for keeping brides and grooms calm and organised. It asks you for your anticipated wedding date, and then builds a customised schedule within that time frame, along with a checklist so you can keep track of what needs to get done and by when.
The moment couples get engaged, there’s always an excited rush to sort the venue, dresses and suits, but it’s so easy to forget about the smaller things. Designed with busy modern couples in mind, Bridebook creates an epic to-do list with all the things you need to consider. It also allows you to track your budget, and recommends local wedding suppliers.
One of the most stressful pre-wedding tasks is working out who will sit next to who, and trying to keep everyone happy in the process. Thankfully, this app can alleviate your seating plan headache as it allows you to enter the names of all of your guests, and virtually drag and drop them from table to table until you’ve found a plan that works. It definitely beats an illegible handwritten diagram.
Available on the App Store
Let’s face it: even if you tell your guests you don’t want wedding gifts, you’ll still receive some, so they might as well get you something that you actually want – and we all love a honeymoon. This crowdfunding app allows your friends and familiy to contribute to the trip of a lifetime – you can specify activities that you want to try on your getaway and they can purchase those for you, or they can add money to the overall pot.
Even if you hire a professional photographer for your big day, it’s likely that you’ll miss out on the countless snaps taken by your guests on their phones. Well – not anymore, thanks to this handy photo and video sharing app. WedPics lets your loved ones upload their personal photos from your wedding into one collection, which you can share around with a custom URL, plus you can also order prints if you want physical copies.
This popular pin board app isn’t specifically for weddings, but most couples tying the knot these days consult Pinterest as the very first step for get-the-look inspiration. Whether you need help with the finer details such as tablecloths and decorations, or the dress and rings, Pinterest can guide you towards the perfect wedding aesthetic – or help you work out what you don’t like so you can create your own unique style.
Hitched has it all – search over 3,000 venues across the country, browse their suppliers directory to find everything from the flowers to the DJ, read through their useful articles for budget ideas, dress advice and how to manage your time, and organise all of your findings into a tidy shortlist which you can access on the move with just a few taps – it’s like having a personal wedding planner in your pocket.
All of these apps are free to download from the App Store – happy planning!
