If you’re planning a wedding solo (sans professional wedding planner), you’re probably experiencing an enormous amount of stress. A wedding is said to be ‘the happiest day of your life’ but it involves a lot of work. However, like everything else in our tech-filled world, there are apps to help you plan the most magical day.
Here are six great apps to make your wedding planning as stress-free as possible.
1. Appy Couple
Apply Couple curates content to share with friends, family and vendors by designing your own personalised wedding hub. Important wedding details like guest lists, invitations, RSVPs, accommodation and travel options are packaged together in an interactive website and mobile app for you and your guests. It’s an easy line of connection between you and all your guests – you can receive their RSVPs and keep them up to date on timings and plan for the day, and guests can easily book their hotel and travel, and direct message any queries.
You’ve recently got engaged and have absolutely no idea where to start with the wedding planning. Introducing Wedding Happy, ‘the wedding app that gets you down the aisle’. Simply enter your wedding date and it will design a schedule, complete with a checklist, to help you plan your dream day. From payment tracking to important to-dos (like research photographers and send ‘Save The Date’ cards), this app will become your BFF during the stressful wedding planning process.
If you have absolutely no clue about your wedding dress, The Knot’s Wedding LookBook is a great place to get started. You can use it to search for wedding dresses – by designer, shape, price range, and style – and locate the bridal boutiques near you that stock your favourite dresses (and even book an appointment). You can also search for engagement rings and wedding bands, find beautiful ensembles for your bridesmaids and flower girls. It really is the ultimate wedding lookbook!
One of the most stressful pre-wedding tasks for soon-to-be newlyweds is working out who sits next to who. You want to avoid family feuds, awkward reunions and clashing personalities. TopTablePlanner takes the worry out of creating seating plans. Simply pop in your table type, the number of seats and the names of your guests and you can easily rearrange your wedding until you’ve created a seating plan you’re happy with.
Do you want the colour of your flowers to perfectly complement your dress? Is it important that the bridesmaid’s dresses match the groomsmen’s ties? If you’re taking your wedding colour palette seriously, Pantone Studio is where you need to be.
Even if you say ‘we don’t want wedding gifts’, you can expect to be showered with gifts by your loved ones on your special day so why not give them a helping hand? Honeyfund is a registry app and website that can help you plan the most magical and memorable honeymoon. You can choose your location and specify activities, restaurants, and other experiences you may want to try on your romantic getaway, and guests can either purchase those as gifts or simply add to the money pot.
