Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. And, while planning your wedding can be fun and exciting, it can also be stressful. You have a long list of things that you have to get done before the big day comes; not to mention the invitations! But, luckily, you don’t have to go it alone. There are a ton of mobile apps out there that can help make planning your wedding as stress free as possible. Here are 9 of our favorites to help you out!
- My Fitness Pal
If you are trying to work out and diet before the big day, then My Fitness Pal is a must. This mobile app has somewhat of a cult following with its users and has become very popular for anyone trying to stick to a diet plan. It does double-duty by keeping track of both your exercise and the calories that you consume. The important thing is that you remember to log all of your meals and exercise programs. At the end of the week, the app will tell you how you did according to your goals.
MapMyRun is a great app for anyone who likes to run, or who wants to start running. It records your mileage, tells you your overall pace, has GPS ability and saves your routes. At the end of the week, you will get an email showing your progress through the week.
Collaborate The Planning
Evernote is a great app for sharing your notes and planning documents. You and your significant other can have a list going for songs, while you and your bridesmaids are working on a different list for the floral arrangements. You can even assign to-do items to other people and color code them. This is a great way to make sure that everything is getting done without having to constantly hound everyone who is helping you.
Pay For It
Your budget is one of the most important parts of your wedding, and you should make sure that you create a budget sooner rather than later. Once you’ve created your budget and you know how much you want to spend on each part of the wedding, you’ve got to make sure that you stick to it. Mint can help you make sure that you don’t overspend and blow the budget. Mint is a visual app that will help break down your budget to make it easy to see and and understand. You can manage your habits, set limits, and even create alarms that let you know how much is left in the budget at all times.
Plan the Rest
- Appy Couple
Appy Couple is one of the coolest wedding apps out there. Appy Couple is an app and website combination that helps you create your own customized wedding app and website. This nifty tool has a one-time $35 fee, and helps you manage and share all of your important details with your guests, from registries, to getting your RSVPS, to where the wedding is, and timelines, etc.
- Zola Registry
Zola is a wonderful way to curate the perfect wedding registry. It is simple for anyone to use and makes the whole registry process incredibly easy. Simply create your registry by adding the gifts that you like, and then personalize it with your own notes and photos. Once you’ve created the perfect list, send it to your friends and family, and, when the gifts start coming, Zola ships them straight to your door.
Pinterest is a brilliant go-to site for any bride to be. It is a magical place that has tons of ideas for anyone planning their perfect wedding. You can save all of your ideas on your boards and get ideas to help you plan your perfect day. You can even invite your bridal party to edit, view, and comment on your wedding board.
Unless you go for an unplugged wedding, pictures of your wedding are going to end up on Instagram. With Instaprint, you can print all of your guests’ photos right then, as they are taken and uploaded. Instaprint rents a device that will print and even impart branding onto the photos, so you can even put your own logo on them.
If you’ve run all of the numbers in Mint and you just can’t afford a DJ, don’t worry. With Spotify, you don’t need a DJ; you’ve got all the music that you need under your fingertips. With a little bit of planning, you can create the perfect wedding playlist to keep your wedding going all night long. You can even get your friends and family to get in on the action – Spotify users can send each other playlists and collaborate on them.
