Planning a wedding means you found a life partner. Congratulations! Unfortunately, now you have to plan a wedding, and planning a wedding is more often than not a stressful and overwhelming experience because in between posting your engagement ring all over social media and Googling the top poses for your wedding video, you have to find a venue, pick out a menu, write a guest list, register, and a whole lot more. Still, there are plenty of ways to ease the demands of wedding planning – hiring a wedding planner, help from friends and families, and of course mobile apps.
Mobile apps have made hundreds of things easier, including wedding planning. Here are 3 types of apps for this purpose.
Weddings cost more and more every year so budgeting is definitely a good idea. Otherwise, it’s easy to get carried away with the excitement of wedding planning and spend more than you intend, starting your marriage with financial stress.
With a budgeting app, budgeting for your wedding becomes much easier and more efficient; you can set a budget, track your expenses, manage your spending in real time, and even collaborate with others.
After you pick the right budget app for you, you want to:
- Input the total amount you have available to spend on your wedding
- Categorize your wedding expenses including things like venue rental, catering, floral arrangements, attire, and transportation
- Track your expenses
Photo and Video Apps
As one of the most important days of your life, not capturing moments is something you’ll certainly regret. So besides hiring a professional photographer and videographer, taking advantage of photo and video apps can be an additional way to have funny, intimate moments on record because it means you can document the wedding planning process itself.
There are many photo and video apps available, so it’s important to choose the ones that are best suited to your needs. Look for apps that are specifically designed for weddings and have features that you will find useful, such as photo sharing, editing, and time-lapse functionality.
Guest Management Apps
Your guest list impacts your wedding in different ways.
It’s one of the main factors that will determine the overall cost of your wedding. The more guests you have, the more you will need to spend on catering, seating, and other expenses. Likewise, the more people you invite, the more complex the logistics of your wedding will be. And of course, the people on your guest list will impact the overall atmosphere of your wedding, contributing positively or negatively to the energy and vibe of your wedding.
With a guest management app, you can:
- Track RSVPs
- Create and manage your seating arrangements
- Send messages and updates to your guests in real-time
Planning a wedding doesn’t have to be the most challenging thing you ever do if you have the right kind of help. Remember as well that the most important thing is to celebrate your love and commitment to each other, so don’t get too caught up in the details and enjoy the journey!
