Wedding planning apps

In association with Argos

As many of you know, this last year has been a crazy one for me! What with an extremely active toddler, my job as a learning support assistant with teenagers, attempting to keep my house in some kind of order, feeding my family, David working long hours each day, learning to drive, waitressing in the evenings on weekends (yes I am crazy enough to be working 7 days a week!) plus attempting to plan a wedding, I feel like I've barely had a chance to breathe for the past 12 months! Any spare time I get, I'm just desperate to slob out on the sofa in front of the TV, even though I have a to do list as long as my arm most days. Because of this, a few certain apps and my tablet, a Nexus 7 from Argos, have become my best friends (I am typing this on my blogger app as Lily has her milk on my lap right now)! They have meant a huge amount of my wedding planning has been able to be done on the go as well as while watching TV or in bed before I go to sleep, without having to be sat with my big, clumsy laptop trying to get comfortable! I thought I would share my top 5 apps for wedding planning with you all, as I really don't know what I would have done without them...

My most used app when it comes to wedding planning won't come as a shock to anyone. Pinterest has been my online mood board and my main source of inspiration for almost every aspect of the wedding! I really don't know what brides did before this wonderful invention! I have lost hours and hours browsing through the endless beautiful pictures on there.

I love this app! In my opinion, it is the best wedding app. You can pick from Appy Couples' many beautiful designs and build your very own wedding app and website. It is so stylish and user friendly, even your least tech-savvy guests will be able to use it. You pay to build your app, but then all of your guests can download it for free and log in using your wedding code. You can invite guests, receive RSVP's, share the times and locations of your wedding including maps and travel information plus send messages and updates. On the day, guests can 'toast' you, sign your guestbook and upload pictures so you have everyone's snaps all in one place! There are several other fun features too including a countdown, a puzzle using pictures you upload, a gallery and you can share your story of your relationship with a series of Polaroid pictures and captions- so cute! I can't wait to take a look at what our guests have left for us on the app the day after the wedding!

EBay

EBay has been amazing for lots of little bargains for the wedding day. Every time we have a new idea for the wedding, I always have a quick check to see what I can get on eBay, and I'm rarely dissapointed! From table decorations, to materials for the invites, to fairy lights, to brooches for my bouquet, to bridesmaids shoes, eBay has been such a big help. Plus, the app makes it extra easy to keep track of items your bidding on and orders you've made.

YouTube

For my wedding day, I am doing my own hair and makeup. I don't think I would feel so confident about doing this if it wasn't for the endless tutorials I have watched on YouTube! Watching different videos from the many wonderful beauty vloggers has taught me so much, I know I am going to have my hair and makeup just the way I like on the big day. I have also been using YouTube to learn how to make my brooch bouquet!

Google play store

I have found having so many bridal magazines and books at my fingertips through the Google play store so useful. There are some really lovely ones available on there, and while I still love having paper copies, finding the time to go and purchase them, then the storage of them can be a little too much hassle, when I have them all readily available on my Nexus!

Are there any apps you think I should download, wedding related or otherwise? I'm always on the lookout for new ones!
