I love my smart phone and I definitely have apps I can’t live without. So in order to help my brides I have been researching which apps will actually help brides and grooms plan their wedding. I’ve come across some stinkers, but there are a few that can actually save you time and help you with all those wedding planning tasks.
# 1 My number one pick is, of course, from the Knot. We all know these folks know what they are doing when it comes to weddings. Their app is no different. If you create a log in their app will track everything from planning checklist to budget and guest list. You can even have all your favorites at your fingertips to show your vendors when you meet with them. I find that even if you don’t want to have a log in this app can be very helpful. It lists all vendors in your area for every category, and has lots of inspiration from real wedding pictures.
Totally worth it because it’s FREE!!!
#2 Number 2 comes from another well-known wedding planning site. Wedding wire. They also have a great tracker with to-do lists and vendor manager. Lots of real wedding inspiration and a list of vendors in your area. They also allow you to make inspiration boards, a great tool use when meeting with vendors. For most of the really helpful stuff you need to have a log in, but it is free so no problem!
#3 My next pick is Wedding Happy. I researched this one and found it really easy to use. It is also free and you don’t need to pay for check lists like on some of the other wedding planning apps. The app also helps you find vendors by listing the ones on Yelp in your area. It keeps the tasks in order or by due date or category, and even let you know what tasks you have completed. The one thing I feel this app is lacking is a budget tracker. For a free wedding planner app this is very useful.
#4 I love First dance Free. It lists many songs for your dances or dinner music and even plays them with the video! You can Go Pro for $1.99, then it will make suggestions for every part of your wedding, father daughter dance, grand entrance songs, even bouquet or garter toss music. It will also take you to ITunes to buy your song. Very helpful!
#5 Wedding Gawker. So much inspiration! Pictures of wedding and engagements across the world. You can search by color or category to find inspiration on whatever you are looking for. Click on a picture and you are taken to the blog post to read about all the details you love. Save your favorites and they are at your fingertips to share with your wedding vendors. I believe you may have to create a log in to save favorites, but it is all free and you will be so inspired!
