There are so many wedding apps out there, it’s hard to keep up. But when you’re planning your wedding, it can get even more overwhelming because there are so many details involved.
You have to find a venue, book vendors, send invites, manage guest lists and assign table assignments. So much work goes into coordinating a wedding that sometimes people feel like their head is going to explode.
To cut down on the stress of planning your big day, here are some helpful tips on how you can use technology to make planning your wedding less stressful and more fun!
Organize your guest list and assign tasks
RSVPify: Guest lists can get quite out of hand if you’re not careful, but luckily, there are some wedding apps that can help with this. GuestLog is a great wedding app that helps keep track of your guest list and makes managing it easier.
You can create your guest list, upload a guestbook, and even send text reminders to invitees. You can also create a calendar and assign tasks to your bridal party and other wedding guests.
This is great if you have some people helping you who aren’t as organized as you are and need a bit of guidance.
Use Task Managers to keep track of vendors & important dates
Ammm, If you’re like me, you probably have a long list of vendors you want to hire for your wedding. But after a while, it can become a bit overwhelming to keep track of who you want to hire and what dates you want to book them for.
Wedding apps like The Knot’s Knot Manager make it easier to keep track of your vendors, especially if you’re working with a large list of them.
You can keep track of who you’ve contacted, how far you are in the process of booking them, and what dates you want to book them for. The Knot also has an app for managing your guest list with The Knot’s Guest Manager.
Plan your food and drink menu
While some couples are going with the more traditional menu of chicken and fish, others are choosing more adventurous menu items. Whatever menu you choose, make sure to keep it organized and easily accessible so you don’t forget anything important. If you have a long menu, using an app may be helpful.
With a shorter menu, a pen and paper may be enough. If you’re having a buffet, an app like Buffet Planner can help you easily track who is eating what. This app lets you create a table layout with a “cart” for each guest.
You can add items to their “cart” based on allergies, dietary restrictions, and how many servings they want.If you’re having a sit-down dinner, apps like Dine are helpful for keeping track of the courses. You can create a menu for each course and assign seating for each course at the table.
Many couples are also choosing to have a signature cocktail at their wedding. Apps such as Wedding Bar can help you decide what drink to serve and can keep track of how many servings of each drink you have left. Wedding Bar also comes with an interactive bar menu that you can use to keep track of your guest’s orders.
Send Your Invites With Editee
Editee is a great app that will help keep track of your guest list and make it easier to send out invites. You can add guests to your guest list, invite them to different events you have planned (such as a bridal shower or bachelor/bachelorette party), and even send them thank you cards after their attendance at events.
This is a great way to keep track of who has been invited to what events and what they have RSVP’d for. Editee is also helpful if you have a large guest list. It can be difficult to get in touch with everyone and remember who you’ve contacted. This app can help you keep track of who you’ve sent invites to and who you still need to contact.
