You’ve all heard the phrase there’s an app for that and for tech savvy brides that couldn’t more true.
While taking some time to set up my new tablet that Santa brought me I have been spending a lot of time searching for useful apps, widgets, and cool stuff to use on my new toy. I came across several Wedding planning apps that some of our 2013 and 2014 brides can use to help the planning process.
There are several free apps available and a search of your apps store whether you have an iPhone or android device will generate several available apps. Here are a few that we have taken a look at that just might help you plan your dream wedding!
Our Wedding Planner (Free – For Android Devices)
Putting together your guest list is easy with this wedding planner. You can import all your guests directly from your phone contacts and manage the invitations that have been sent, received and pending as well as assign tables for guests to sit. This app is also a great way to keep tabs on those plus ones (or twos , or threes)
If you import vendors from your contacts into the application you can quickly reach them to make sure everything is on track.
With so many things that need to be done, the app is pre-populated a task list so that nothing is left out. You can add to the task list as well as set reminders for the extra important stuff. This app even sets due dates based on your wedding date so that your schedule is evenly spaced
Our wedding also helps give you an idea of how your budget should be allocated across the different categories. Get estimates based on your total wedding budget and time estimates relative to your big day.
There is even a countdown to the time left till you walk down the aisle with our customizable countdown widget.
