The best wedding planning apps
These days, we have all the technology we need to make wedding planning easier than ever. If you need a helping hand with your planning, take a look at our top picks for wedding apps…
Guides for Brides Wedding Planner
Of course, we have to start with (in our opinion) the very best wedding planning app – ours! This handy app is an extension of our online wedding planner, and syncs your information across both so that you can take your wedding plans with you wherever you go. You can do everything from searching for suppliers to checking off tasks, managing your budget and sorting your guest list, all in one handy app.
The big one – if you’re looking for wedding inspiration, then this is one of your best sources! From ideas for flowers, hairstyles, favours and more, to helpful planning tips and practical advice, Pinterest is a great place to start the planning process. Just be careful not to get too overwhelmed with ideas, or you’ll end up wanting a day that’s way over your budget!
Another great source of inspiration is Instagram. Not only can you search for general ideas via hashtags, but it’s also a good way to see more of your suppliers’ portfolios. Plus, you can keep up to date on all the latest news and events with Instagram Stories – take a look at ours to see updates from our fairs, polls, real engagements and planning tips.
Ever wish there was a Tinder for weddings? Now there is! Planit lets you swipe through your chosen categories to see ideas within your budget from local suppliers. Just swipe right to add to your shortlist, or left to reject. Once you’ve created your shortlist, you can find out more about your suppliers, and export them to your Guides for Brides wedding planner. Easy peasy!
A wedding hashtag is one thing, but photo sharing apps are the next step when it comes to seeing all your guests’ photos in one handy place. Wedpics is the biggest of these – all you need to do is download the app, set up your wedding tag, and then ask your guests to join it on the app. This is a great alternative to countless Facebook albums, but be aware that you’ll need to pay an extra fee to download the images in high res.
Whatever part of the wedding day you’re planning, you’re likely to need music! Spotify is by far our favourite app for putting together playlists for the hen party, getting ready in the morning, and the background music for the wedding meal. It won’t replace a live band, but for all the little bits of music you need to sort, a premium Spotify membership is well worth it.
