Wedding planning takes an awful lot of organising, delegating, and scheduling to get things just right. Whether you need help with compiling those RSVPs, sorting out the seating arrangements, gathering inspiration, or are simply looking for somewhere for guests to share their photos of your big day - there’s an app for that.
So scrap that disheveled to-do list and grab your techy devices because we’ve found five of the very best wedding apps to help coordinate your dream wedding without all the stress.
WedPics showcases all the photos from your wedding in one beautiful and fully interactive place. Personalise the app to match to your colour scheme and style, add a bio and cover photo then watch in awe as it all comes to life.
Guests are able to capture and share their unique experiences of your day, and also interact with the photos by giving them filters, comments or likes. WedPics stands out from the crowd of other photo sharing apps by allowing you to have full privacy control over a lifetime’s worth of unlimited photo hosting so you’ll never miss out on those magical memories.
Wedding Party App
Wedding Party App combines the important organisation tools with a whole load of fun features to make wedding plans and wedding celebrations more enjoyable. The app boasts its own built-in photo booth which allows guests to create personalised photo strips and GIFs in one place at absolutely no expense to any of your wedding budget.
You’ll also find a built-in guestbook and some team games to keep everyone entertained while you’re lost in the magical moment. If you’d like a little help making sure your guests know exactly what to expect and when on your big day, then this is the app for you - thanks to the instant messaging, local area information, and event schedule.
Becoming engaged is a very precious moment for any couple and can leave you walking around with your head in the clouds for ever more, distracting you from kickstarting those all important wedding plans. This is where WeddingHappy comes in handy - simply pop an estimated wedding date into the dashboard and, like magic, the app calculates a customised timeline of tasks and due dates to help everything seamlessly fall into place.
Keep costs at bay with the budget tracker and receive a notification when things need doing. The app also supports sync-up with your calendar and social media channels to keep everyone in check, and what’s more, all of its features work without network connection making it possible to plan on the go.
The mobile responsive website, WeddingSite runs in sync to the popular desktop planning tools of the same name. Divided into four key areas: budgets, guests, to-dos, and suppliers, the streamlined app works hard to help those wedding dreams become a stunning reality.
The budget planner is especially useful by incorporating details of UK average spends for each wedding element including everything from outfits, to venue, catering, to honeymoon, making it super easy to allocate and organise funds. We also love the quick and easy guest list to keep tabs on invites and RSVPs on the go, as well details for any plus ones or special dietary requirements.
The WedSocial app was the brainchild of a real engaged couple in the hope that they would create a customisable and interactive experience for bride and grooms-to-be. Through WedSocial’s partnership with Google Maps, the bride and groom can upload all the event information providing guests with accurate turn-by-turn direction to the venue.
This app is more than just photo sharing. Cool features include cute bios of the happy couple, where they met, how he proposed and pictures from pre-wedding events like the hen and stag parties. The app even plays matchmaker allowing the bride and groom to enter guest information and with a tap of an app let ‘maids find eligible bachelors.
Downloading a wedding app is at the heart of the social side of a wedding and can be the easiest and cheapest (most apps are FREE!) way to tap into cool planning tools, capture wedding memories, and share your big day.
