With weddings becoming more and more involved these days, staying organized and on budget can be difficult for many couples. You have to keep track of a million moving parts while also trying to enjoy the process, so it can get overwhelming! The good news is that we live in a world where technology can guide us through the planning process with the endless websites and planning apps that help couples remain on track, on budget and sane. We’ve got a list of some of our favorites that we think couples should keep in their back pocket!
Honeyfund is a free crowdsourcing honeymoon registry that has become a favorite because there are no transaction fees for anyone. Couples are able to create a personalized site with categorized gift amount options for guests to choose from. They’ve even expanded to be more than just a honeymoon registry, where couples can now ask for any big ticket items, like contributing to a house down payment or a “just starting off” fund.
WedReality allows users to virtually try on more than 300 dress combinations to figure out what is the right style for them. Strapless, long sleeves, cap sleeves, one-shoulder, short, and long—they’re all included in this virtual dressing room.
The Black Tux
The Black Tux offers an easy way to rent your tuxedo. You can style your own tux and include the accessories you want, then enter your measurements online. Your tux comes in the mail, you wear it and then return it! Share with your groomsmen, so they can all get matching suits or tuxedos and pay online.
This is a great, free tool for anyone who needs to keep flights, rental cars and hotel reservations organized – it allows you to input all of your information and subsequently keeps everything in one place. It can also be set to automatically grab travel confirmations from your email to store in the app.
We hope these apps will significantly reduce your wedding planning stress. Be sure to let your vendors know which apps you’re using, they may be able to help you maximize its use!
