We do quite a few of these “Best Apps for…” blogs, but it’s only because there is literally an app for everything and we couldn’t possibly report on them all, even if we lived forever in the body of a cyborg (we like to imagine ourselves as part of the Head Museum from Futurama, actually)
Since some of our team are freshly betrothed and could be heading down the aisle over the coming months, we’ve dug around in old iPads, iPhones and Android gadgets to choose our favourite three apps for weddings!
My Wedding (Free)
A really simple iPhone/Android app that basically puts tons of resources at your fingertips. There’s a great directory of businesses plus practical note taking and planning features. We buy laptops, smartphones and gadgets – you buy flowers, The Dress and a splendid honeymoon!
The Knot Wedding Dress Lookbook (Free)
According to the more wedding-y people in the M4M office, TheKnot.com is a brilliant resource for all things nuptial. Their wedding dress lookbook iPhone app has thousands of gowns and heaps of options. And let’s pretend none of the manly guys here in the office spent time on an old iPad2 browsing their favourites. Of course not.
Great as love is, it seems most of the iPad trade ins and old Blackberrys we get in don’t have much in the way of fully functioning wedding apps. Are they more of a gimmick than actual help? Our last pick is probably the most practically useful.
Wedding Budget (Free)
Does what is says on the tin, with a helpful little layout of pie charts, colour coding and deficits. You can input potential plans, payment dates – pretty much everything finance-based about the whole palaver.
Ain’t love grand!
