In our recent post, we talked about choosing a wedding planner book, but not everyone wants a physical planner. Or, perhaps you have a book but want to be able to make notes when an idea occurs or you run across something unexpected. This is where having a wedding planning app for your smart device will be perfect.

Of course, many wedding planning apps are available, so choosing one perfect for your needs might be overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help you make your choice.

  • Is it flexible? Your wedding is about you, so choose a wedding planning app that lets you customize as many facets of your wedding as possible.
  • Does it keep up with contacts? You will be working with vendors, venues, parties, and more. You need an app that will either interface with your phone’s contacts or allows you to store this info within the app itself.
  • Does it have a checklist? Being able to check things off as they are done helps you stay on track. Ideally, the wedding planning app will have this To Do list listed in reverse chronological order so that the tasks that need to be earliest are listed first.

Keeping these criteria in mind will help you choose the perfect wedding planning app for your Wedding Day. Also, don’t be afraid to work with more than one wedding planner app. Some apps might be perfect for planning the wedding itself, while others are geared towards tracking guests, gifts, and events. Like your wedding, choose the apps that will work best for what you want.
