This post is somewhat of a continuation on having a plugged-in wedding. I already noted that I wanted to encourage the use of cell phones and cameras during our wedding—especially during the reception. To try to get more people to take pictures, I created the I Spy cards I told you about earlier. But then of course there’s the issue of actually getting the pictures.
Many of our friends and relatives have smart phones, so we looked into paid apps like Wedding Snap or Snap the Wedding. In the end, we just didn’t want to allot any amount of money toward this when 1.) We were already paying a professional photographer and 2.) We weren’t sure how many people would actually download the app and take pictures with it. We also weren’t sure about those who had cameras—why pay for a service when only half of the guests at the wedding could use it?
We moved on from this idea and set about creating a wedding website. We decided on mywedding.com (more on how we chose a wedding website later). While setting up our free website, we noticed that they had a wedding app available for download and integration, at no extra cost. Thinking it probably wasn’t all that great, I downloaded it to test it anyway.
Kind of a cute icon! Once you open up the app and join our wedding, you see a screen like this.
