There is an app for just about every part of life, your wedding included. That’s probably not too much of a shocker. App stores are full of options for helping you make your way to your big day as easily as possible (which once you get into the hustle of planning, you might appreciate).
Just as the old adage “Something old, new, borrowed, blue,” your wedding app selections also fall into specific use categories:
1. SOMETHING FOR INSPIRATION
Clearly Pinterest is the first app that comes to mind when we are discussing inspiration, but it can go well beyond that. Pantone Studios has an app that is perfect for color coordination to make sure everything goes together and isn’t just matchy-matchy; it even allows you to upload a photo, and it will pull our coordinating colors. Carats + Cake also has an app that shows you not only all the pretty, but who did it so you know who to hire.
2. SOMETHING FOR ORGANIZING
The big names in the industry (Wedding Wire, The Knot, Zola) all have apps that are designed to help you stay in line with your planning. There are also a selection of other apps (such as Manage My Wedding, Wedding Happy, and The Big Day) that will do a similar job. These apps are handy as they can help you be as prepared as you will ever be in regards to budget, to do lists, and even RSVPing.
3. SOMETHING FOR REGISTERING
There’s a good chance of the “Oh! I can’t forget THAT!” moments of your wedding planning will be in regards to registering. There is also a solid chance you already have one app you might use on your device (Amazon), but other major brands offer app-based registry as well. Target Registry is an option, and it allows you to add items in the app as well as scan in store. Zola Registry is also a helpful app,
4. SOMETHING FOR RELAXING
To answer your question: Yes, Candy Crush totally counts as an app for relaxation (as does Fruit Ninja if that’s still a thing? Don’t mine me, living back here in 2011). Otherwise, using a relaxation/meditation app such as Calm, Buddhify, or The Tapping Connection could help you manage wedding-related stress and anxiety. The app Day One will get you journaling, and Colorfy does as it names implies: It brings an adult coloring book to your smartphone.
