Most brides and grooms can agree that while planning your own wedding start to finish is a rewarding experience, it is also a stressful one. Luckily, you’re getting married in the era of apps. Want to add something to your registry on-the-go? There’s an app for that. Want endless style inspiration? There’s an app for that.
So, move over Facebook because these awesome apps are sure to make planning for your special day a piece of (wedding) cake!
1. Tiffany & Co. Engagement Ring Finder
This free app is a virtual one-stop shop for trying on rings that are anything but free (some prices are listed). By simply taking a quick picture of your hand, you are able to try on all the rings you want without any judgement. If you just can’t decide or want to drop a hint to your honey, you can share the photo with up to 10 people. There is even a “Make an Appointment” feature and a way to mark your favorites as “Saved Rings.” This app just might be the only Tiffany product that’s free, so you definitely need it in your life.
2. Style Me Pretty
This aesthetically pleasing app is pure #weddinggoals (and is also free). Swipe through photo collections of weddings that are sure to inspire, and when something catches your eye, “heart it” to save it for the future! You are able to search specific details and add your location to see what is trending around you. For example, by searching wedding dresses, you are able to see vendors close by and photos of wedding dresses to point you in the right direction. Who needs endless wedding magazines hogging up space on the coffee table? Not you.
3. WeddingHappy – Wedding Planner
Always wanted a personal assistant? You found one. WeddingHappy houses tasks, vendor lists, payment stubs, and more. The best part is, it works for free. This free app will be an absolute lifesaver when it comes to wedding organization. Set a wedding date and take advantage of the pre-loaded tasks like “Start guest list” and “Order save the date cards.” You can even set reminders for coloring your hair in the right time frame before the big day. It’s so helpful, you’ll want an app like this for everyday life.
4. The Zola Wedding Registry
This is the new way to registry. Download the Zola Wedding Registry for free and get started on your registry by uploading photos, collections, and notes. With Zola, the registry that will do anything for love, you can receive gifts, experiences, and funds. See something you like at a store that’s a bit off the beaten registry path? Use the barcode scanner function on the app to scan any gift, anywhere, any time. The app even has it’s own gift selection to check out. Finally the days of driving around from store to store, lugging around a barcode scanner are gone.
5. Wedding Spot
You want your location to be true to the couple you are but also impressive. The size is important, and so is the cost. But, one of a couple’s greatest concerns about the location is that they haven’t seen all of their options. This app completely eliminates that worry and any other “what if’s” you might have about location. You can search this free app by style, location, and budget. Also, you can get an instant price quote by selecting the services and options you’d like on your big day. The app encourages users to schedule appointments that receive responses within 24 hours. By allowing Wedding Spot to access your location, the app will automatically queue venues close by, but it is just as easy to search a location, add filter parameters, and find the perfect place to say your “I Do’s.”
6. Countdown App Free (Big Day Event Timer Reminder)
You’ve seen the wedding countdowns your friends share on social media, and you want one too! This app is simple to customize and allows you to choose your own photo, countdown style, and more. Save it to send to loved ones, or share it straight to Instagram. This app is free and easy to use for other major life events as well. So, share away and get all the “likes” as your big day nears!
