The Best Wedding Planner Apps
As wonderful as it is getting engaged to the person you love, planning a wedding can be stressful. The to-do list can seem never-ending or even where to start can be daunting!
I’ve rounded up some of the best apps to help you go from Bridezilla to Bride-chilla in a couple of taps.
Appy Couple – Free
Fabulous puns aside this is a great app for keeping track of your guest list. You create a personalised wedding website used by both you and your guests. Instead of contacting everyone individually, you can share information, updates, and timings for the big day in one place, as well as send invites, collect RSVPs and manage the guest list. You can use it on top of sending physical wedding invites too, to keep track of attendees.
Honeyfund – Free
While this app doesn’t strictly help you plan your wedding it does help with the Honeymoon. It is a registry app that can help you save for your honeymoon. Instead of picking physical gifts, guests can purchase activities you want to do on your honeymoon or contribute to the overall holiday fund.
Bridebook – Free
Your whole wedding to-do list in one place. Bridebook has been hailed as the highest-rated wedding app in the world, and it’s easy to see why. If it’s hitting you just how much goes into planning a wedding, don’t fret, just download this app, make an account, input your wedding date, and Bridebook will help you sort it all out. It creates a customisable to-list with everything to consider, from finding wedding venues and suppliers to setting a budget and keeping track of expenses. There’s plenty of inspiration too, as you can browse through a selection of real weddings and get advice and ideas from wedding experts. Many local suppliers also offer Bridebook customers discounts as well (hint, hint, just saying!).
Joy – Free
Joy is similar to Bridebook in that it’s a mega to-do list in one place, but for the tech-savvy, it can also be used as your very own social media wedding hub. Everyone can create their own guest profiles, so people can connect before the actual wedding, and it can be used to share memories and pictures after the big day, too.
Pinterest – Free
From table decorations to bouquets, wedding dresses, and everything in-between. Pinterest is your go-to for wedding inspiration.
Wedbox – Free (with upgrade charges)
From the professional shots to the candid snaps, everyone will want access to the pictures and videos of your wedding – as will you. With Wedbox you and your guests will be able to upload photos in one place, so you don’t have to search through Instagram or rely on people using the custom hashtag after one too many glasses of fizz. The app is free to use but you can pay extra to download the highest quality images.
The Wedding Shop – Free
You can easily manage your gift list, choose products and browse lots of inspiration to make sure that your guests can find the perfect present to celebrate your marriage. You can also build a honeymoon, personal, or charity fund if a traditional gift list isn’t right for you.
Trello – Free
Not strictly a wedding planning app but if you love a to-do list more than anything else, you’re going to need Trello. This free planning app lets you build multiple to-do lists and assign tasks – and then move it into your completed column, which, let’s face it, is the MOST satisfying feeling.
You can use it for your own wedding planning tasks, but also if you are delegating to others, to keep on top of what’s being done. It would be especially useful if you’re planning a wedding abroad and want visibility of what your planner is working on, without having to be in constant communication.
Headspace – Free Trial
Wedding planning can get a bit stressful from time to time. To avoid wedding planning burnout, it’s worth downloading an app like Headspace to help you take some time out and practice mindfulness.
You’re offered a free trial initially, then you can subscribe for either £9.99 per month or £49.99 per year. If you’re on a tight budget, it’s worth using it for the free trial and then taking note of the practices that work for you and keep them going after your trial has finished and you’ve cancelled your subscription.
Pantone Studio – Charges Apply
One of the factors you’ll want to consider early on in your wedding planning is your colour scheme, and Pantone Studio can help you do just that. You can build a colour palette of up to five shades to see how they work together. Better still, you can take a photo of an item you like, such as a bridesmaid’s dress, and see if it matches your theme, as the app will find the exact shade.
Top Table Planner – Free
This easy-to-use app and website allows you to add tables, manage your guest list and keep revising your seating plan until you’re happy with who’s sitting where. Once it’s all finished, you can print out a seating plan and send a PDF to your venue to produce a definitive list of attendees and meal choices.
Mint – Free
Keep track of your spending and create a budget using this money manager and financial tracker app that brings together all of your bank accounts, credit cards and bills in one place.
There you go! Hopefully, these app suggestions will help you plan your dream wedding and live appily ever after (sorry, not sorry!).
App prices correct at time of blog being written in April 2022. JB Moments Photography receives no commission for recommending these apps. BUT if any tech company wants to talk…I’m all ears!!
