From cakes and tablescapes to gorgeous floral designs, the special details that make up a wedding day never cease to amaze us.

We just love this fabulous cake. It sparkles and is surrounded by stunning calla lilies – what else could you ask for?!

How clever is this tablescape? The pinwheel napkins and lane marker showcase the couple’s lighthearted personality perfectly!

What better way to say, “I’m your biggest fan!” These cake toppers are such an adorable, loving detail. Not to mention, the personalization was spot on!

Using Technology to Plan Your Wedding

June 6th, 2016

These days, the world is more plugged in than ever and couples planning their wedding are taking full advantage. More and more the answer to the question, “Is there an app for that?” is yes. From list making apps to budget management to wedding website creation, wedding planning has arrived in the 21st century and we’ve got some great examples of how tech is on the scene.

Organization Apps

We all know the struggle is real when planning a massive event and keeping it organized, and even more so when that event is your wedding! There are several wedding specific apps that can help with that. Apps like Plan The Day will keep you organized with checklists, vendor management, guest list management and vendor management. The WeddingWire app also has similar features, along with a budget section to help keep you on track!

Wedding Website

Couples are no longer bound to paper when relaying information for their wedding day. With the rise of the wedding website, there are countless options (free and paid) that will let you create a personalized website with pictures, your love story and any information you want to include. Some companies are even expanding their services from not just wedding websites but also planning tools. Appy Couple is a great example of this.

Picture Sharing

As a society that seeks instant gratification, the wedding hashtag has become not just popular, but basically mandatory at weddings. By using a hashtag, the couple and their guests are able to see pictures and videos instantly of the wedding all in one place. This can be a great tool for newlyweds who want to take a trip down memory lane. While Instagram tends to be the most popular photo and video sharing tool for weddings, other apps like WedPics have emerged as helpful tools to gather everything posted online into one place.

With technology growing at a crazy rate, there are endless app options for planning your wedding, you just have to find what’s the right fit for your planning style!
