Planning and celebrating your wedding has never been easier thanks to the technology of smartphones and other handheld devices. There are mobile and digital applications for every aspect of the wedding process, from planning to communicating with your guests to reveling in the fun after the big day has come to an end.
Here are just a few worth taking a closer look at:
The Knot Wedding LookBook lets you research through major designers and current trends to help you narrow down your wish list before ever stepping foot into a salon. The app lets you refine your search by style, shape and price point, as well as shop for others in your bridal party, including the mother of the bride and attendants — both adult and pint-sized. Perk? The app also will make suggestions to you based on your saved favorites.
Pantone Studio app is perhaps one of the most useful applications but is easy to overlook. This app is extremely helpful in helping you curate the perfect color palette.
When you find something you love and feel the color must be incorporated in your wedding, Pantone Studio allows you to upload a photo of it (whatever “it” is), and show you other hues that perfectly complement your color. No more wondering if colors match, or what “goes” with what.
Wedding Happy allows you to keep track of your to-do list and add tasks, while syncing with your phone’s calendar and address book to help you keep track of appointments with potential vendors or dress fittings.
Wedding Happy also keeps all your vendors and costs in one place, keeps track of payments and will adjust your remaining budget and cost per guest when you enter an expenditure or payment. It’s never been easier to stay on budget.
Wedpics is a modern take on passing out disposable cameras to your guests. This app allows all your guests to share their photos of your special day with you. You just need to create a wedding ID and share it with your guests. This is great information to include on your wedding website and at your reception to remind guests to use it. You can even download high-resolution copies of your guests’ photos and order prints directly from the app.
