Appily Ever After: 10 Wedding Apps To Help Plan Your Big Day
Planning your big day can suck the fun out of this magical time, but there’s plenty of help just a few taps and swipes away. From digital wedding binders to photo and video sharing platforms, these 10 helpful wedding apps will make planning a breeze:
The Knot Wedding Planner
Developed by husband-and-wife team Carley Roney and David Liu, The Knot Wedding Planner app incorporates all the popular features from The Knot website into this one-stop app, featuring checklists, countdown, budgeter, guest list manager and easy communication with various vendors.
With a library of customisation designs, including those by Carolina Herrera and Ceci New York, this multitasking wedding app (and eponymous website) is more than its gorgeous, stylish design.
It consolidates everything from itineraries and accommodation to photo sharing, gift registries and RSVPs into one stunning, easy-to-configure platform to share between hosts and guests. Your wedding website has never looked so good.
Sometimes the sweetest moments are captured spontaneously, and this photo and video sharing wedding app lets you save them all in one place. Guests upload shots to a sharable digital album after entering your special wedding ID. You can then download them and order prints through the app.
There’s no limit on the number of photos, and best of all? You have full control over your wedding album and can delete or share as you prefer—which is perfect for all those moments you’d prefer to be left on the dancefloor.
This beautifully designed all-in-one wedding app manages everything from designing invitations to organising hotel shuttles. But its most interesting feature is that it provides a unique social media profile for each guest within the app, from which they can like, comment and share snapshots and anecdotes—it's the perfect icebreaker.
A fun take on the traditional wedding video, this innovative wedding app puts the camera in the hands of the wedding party. Pick from an array of editing styles and an editing team will craft your bespoke wedding video from all the photos, video snippets and candid moments captured during your wedding.
With a million deadlines and appointments piling up on the to-do list, this handy wedding app keeps you right on track with a fully customised timeline based on your wedding date and location, complete with a monthly checklist, hands-on tips and even a day-of timeline.
Whether you’re planning a destination extravaganza or an intimate affair, weddings can get expensive. Get budget-savvy with this money manager and financial tracker app, which keeps tabs on various accounts and spending. Users can sync bank accounts, credit cards, spending and even export spreadsheets across devices.
There is perhaps no dress more important to a woman than her wedding gown, and the second wedding app created by The Knot platform provides one of the largest selections of designs.
Peruse thousands of wedding and bridesmaid dresses, engagement rings and accessories options from top designer and boutique brands. It also comes with listings of wedding dress salons in the US that carry them.
There’s something about handwritten cards, though scribbling thank you notes for a party of hundreds would be any bride’s nightmare. This app enlists a team of artists to help. Simply pick from a selection of card collections and writing styles, upload graphics, photos and your message, and your handwritten letter will be mailed out in 24 hours at US$7 per card.
Harness your creative potential with this pretty app featuring step-by-step tutorials for practically any wedding-related project, from handcrafted party favours to make-up tricks and recipes.
