As wedding DJs who work all over the Central PA, Northern VA, and Baltimore MD areas, we have the pleasure of helping couples who are vastly different in terms of style, vibe, tastes, and desires. As different as they are individually, most of them have one thing in common: they are a bit stressed, because they have never planned a wedding before.
As a business owner, I can relate to how you feel. I get very apprehensive whenever I undertake something that I have never done before. In my case it is usually website or tech related. The fear of making a mistake or messing something up can be almost paralyzing. When you feel like you cannot afford a professional IT Specialist in my case or a Professional Wedding Planner in yours, it is easy to feel overwhelmed.
Thankfully for you and I, there has never been more information readily available to help us accomplish a task we have never done before!
For those who cannot afford a wedding planner or just want to save a bit of money in favor of more important things that your guests will enjoy-- did someone say photo booth-- here are some helpful smartphone applications that will help you plan your dream wedding.
Wedding Planner by the Knot
This is the one application that every bride should have on her phone! This is close to an all in one app. Tools included are: A Wedding Checklist, Wedding Timeline, Guest List Manager, and a Budget. This application allows you to create a custom wedding website directly from the app.
Are you looking for an easy way to stay organized as you plan the biggest party you have ever thrown? Zola has you covered! This app leads you through all of the wedding planning basics, including scheduling, and allows you to create a gift registry using the Zola Registry companion app.
Using the registry application allows you to select all of the gifts that you want without the hassle of creating registries through individual store fronts.
While this is app is not specifically for wedding planning, it is a fantastic application for taking notes, creating to-do lists, collecting images and websites, and creating reminders.
This application allows you to organize all of the information and wedding notes you have collected into planners and virtual notebooks.
For the do-it-yourselfers this app is a must have!
Looking for inspiration? This is the place to find and save ideas you want for your wedding. If you are searching for wedding dress, engagement ring, or wedding décor ideas, Pinterest makes it easy to collect and save all of your ideas to Pinterest boards that you can refer to later.
Etsy is not only an inspirational app, this is a DIY brides dream! You can not only browse and buy unique and often hand-crafted items, you can find and purchase all of the supplies needed to create them yourself.
This application is super cool! As the name implies, this is not an app for you, but for your guests. That doesn’t mean however that you will not want it!
During a wedding guest will take lots of photos that the bride and groom often never get a chance to see. With The Guest app, all of the photos taken by your guests are automatically shared with everyone attending the wedding, including the couple!
Hobnob Invitations & Text RSVP
This is another application that will benefit both you and your guests.
This application allows you to create spectacular wedding / party invites and get RSVPs almost instantly!
Another way too cool feature that your guests will appreciate is that an hour before the start time for your event this app will text each of your guests directions to the event as well as any updates about the event.
This is a great app for setting up your wedding budget and tracking expenses. Anytime you are entertaining 75 – 300 guests it can get expensive. The Mint app allows you to rest a bit easier knowing that you are staying on top of it all.
This wedding app ensures that you will get what you want rather than a fine china place setting that was cool fifty years ago!
Using the Honeyfund your guests can contribute toward the cost of your honeymoon as your wedding gift. Not only can your guests purchase fun excursions at your honeymoon destination, they can also purchase meals or simply add to your overall fund.
Either way, the Honeyfund allows you to get what is important to you.
