Marriage is a union of two people for a variety of reasons. Some may get married as pre-arranged by their parents while most are determined by personal desire. Getting hitch is surely a breathtaking experience, however, planning a wedding may take your breath away – literally – with all the hustles from setting a budget, dealing with suppliers, organizing bookings, managing guest lists, picking the correct tunes, etc.
Good thing there is a number of apps in the App Store for brides and grooms-to-be that will make it a breeze for them to plan their wedding. One of the apps is Wedding Planner for iPad by Createful.
This iPad app will allow you to plan your special day without stress, driving down your blood pressure levels as you plan one of the best days of your life. It will come in handy especially for those who recently got engaged and don’t have the budget to hire a wedding planner to be in charge of budgets, guest lists, colors, suppliers, and seat plans. Basically, it will help you set up everything related to your wedding.
Start it off by entering the name of the bride and the groom, the date of their engagement and the big day itself. From there, Wedding Planner lets you view your to-do list, manage your guest list, allocate your budget and manage the vendors like caterers, photographers and drivers. You can also create notes, change color scheme and set up a thank you list – to monitor who gave you gifts and whether you said thanks or not. Every component of the app are straight-forward and pretty responsive. Aside from being easy to use, it’s good to look at as well.
What I like from this app is the Notes section where you can add sticky notes. Just jot down your thoughts and ideas for your wedding to make sure you don’t forget. Personally, I use a lot of sticky notes because it improves how I organize my thoughts. Also, the Guest List allows you to add people from your Contacts. Just tap on which contact you want to add and voila – your Guest List grows easily without having to manually adding every person.
Overall, Wedding Planner by Createful is a useful app that will guide you each step of the way. I will definitely use this when I get married someday. I found it to be an elegant and effective application to plan your wedding. For $9.99, it will be a bargain as compared to hiring a wedding coordinator.
Note: Requires iOS 5.1 or later. Compatible with iPad.
