Planning a wedding isn’t easy. It takes a lot of organization to keep track of the details and get everything just right. Enter the world of wedding planning apps and websites. These apps and websites will help you through the stages of planning.

General Wedding Planning

The Knot Wedding Planner

Most prospective brides know of The Knot website for wedding planning, creating a wedding website, and inspiration. Now there’s a wedding planning app. The app includes budgeting tools and checklists. You can communicate directly with vendors through the app (or the website). It even syncs with your account on the main website, keeping your plans together in one place.

WeddingWire.com

WeddingWire.com is one of the other main wedding planning websites. Find and contact vendors, plan a seating chart, keep track of your budget and guest list, and create an interactive wedding website.

Appy Couple (https://www.appycouple.com/)

Plan your wedding budget, find inspiration, and keep track of your wedding timeline and itinerary with the free basic version. For an extra fee, you can add a custom wedding website and app. Use this for your guest list and seating chart and to share photos, hotel and travel information with guests.

Wedding Happy (https://www.weddinghappy.com/)

This free app helps keep you on schedule and includes a countdown timer and notifications for tasks and payments. Assign different wedding planning tasks to different people. You can get a spending summary and get help with vendor management. You can even use it in airplane mode. It’s no problem if you want to do some planning while you’re in a dead zone. Some tasks need the premium version, however.

Tie the Knot provides a countdown (down to the second) until your wedding begins. It includes a wedding website and app on which you can post a wedding blog.

Pinterest
