There is an app for just about anything and if you were to look on the Apple store or even Google Play, you may be surprised at how many wedding planning apps are out there. But, which are worth the money and which can be left alone? There are five highly-rated wedding planning apps that can make your life easier – and we highly recommend them.
Designed for the iPhone, iWedding helps you plan just about every aspect of your wedding – and it keeps you on track too. You can track what needs to be done, what you have completed and even break it into micro categories – such as seating chart, dress tailoring, etc. The app is only $4.99 USD and features to-do lists, wedding budget trackers, guest list makers, and more. It could possibly be the only app you need – but you need an iPhone or other Apple device to use it.
Appy Couple is another one-stop app, but unlike the simple interface of iWedding, this one allows you to organize, share and get input from other planning participants. But, for all of the beautiful pages and capabilities, you are going to pay a little more – about $35 USD (just once).
If you are creating a registry or a gift wishlist, you’ll want to register with My Registry. They allow their wish list creators to also use their mobile app (for free) so you can build the perfect wedding registry, monitor what’s being purchased, and more. With the mobile app you can add items to your list quickly – just scan the products barcode and the MyRegistry.com app will recognize it and add it to the list.
Wedding Gawker will not keep you organized, but it is a wedding planning app that a lot of brides use. It works like Pinterest, letting you see different ideas, pin them and share them from one location. Wedding Gawker, however, is another app that only works on iPhone, so if you have an Android you may not be able to get this one to work.
Want to know how much time you have left? Get an attractive wedding countdown timer for your smartphone by using the Wedding Countdown app. You can customize the background, pick your measuring units (such as 12 “hearts” left). You can add as many countdowns as you like – including counting down to the wedding day, honeymoon, bridal shower, etc.
