Planning a wedding can be a stressful, time-consuming process that leaves you feeling helpless at times: there’s catering to organize, a venue to find, the guest list to complete...it can be overwhelming.
There’s help available, though. In today’s constantly-connected world there are plenty of applications for your mobile devices that can help keep you organized and take some of the stress away from you and your future spouse. Here are some of the most popular apps that can help you with many facets of your wedding, so you can rest assured that your special day will be as great as it possible can be.
Keep an Eye on the Weather
One of the biggest concerns when it comes to the wedding day is the weather, especially of the ceremony will take place outside. The Weather Live Free app can help keep you informed so you can make alternative plans in case there are storm clouds looming on the day of your wedding.
This weather app includes all of the bells and whistles that you’d want to stay current. Not only does it show the current temperature, wind chill, wind speed and precipitation, it also has a detailed weather radar so you can keep an eye on any fronts moving in or out of your area. It also has a seven-day forecast so you can know ahead of time if you need to prepare for inclement weather or if your wedding day will be sunny and bright.
Keep in Touch
Keeping everyone involved in your wedding “in the loop” can be time consuming, but with an app like Appy Couple, you can have everyone located in one single place.
The app allows you to invite everyone from wedding party to guests and vendors to join you on one page. This lets you share important information with everyone at once, cutting down on the time spent emailing or calling everyone individually.
It’s possible that you run out of cool ideas for your wedding, so why not stay inspired with the help of The Wedding Lookbook by The Knot.
This app is basically a scrapbook of looks and designs that people have used in the past. You can search through images and find dresses, decorations, rings and more to give you great ideas for your own wedding. It has both new and vintage looks, so you’re sure to find something you like.
Don’t Forget to Party!
Chances are, you and your fiancé will want to enjoy bachelorette or bachelor parties before your big day. An app like TheBach can help you find what you need.
The app has a database of the best bars, clubs, restaurants and hotels in any city in the United States, so you can plan a great night out. You can even create an itinerary to give to your guests!
Don’t let the stress of wedding planning get to you. Use some of these apps and your planning will be a whole lot easier.
