The Top 11 Apps for Planning Your Rocky Mountain Wedding

You’ve had the perfect proposal and the engagement party is behind you. Now, the wedding planning can finally begin! Brides-to-be approach wedding planning very differently, and every bride is unique. Some have had their dream wedding in mind for years and others aren’t sure what they want. Either way, the decisions and planning that go into a wedding take a lot of time, effort, and coordination. When you’re planning a destination Rocky Mountain wedding, it can feel like the “To Do” list never ends.

Luckily, some smart cookies out there have developed lots of great wedding apps to help you stay on track with your timelines, schedules, and decision making. We’ve rounded up the best apps out there to help you plan your Rocky Mountain wedding!

1. WeddingHappy

Simply add your wedding date (or a rough estimate if it isn’t set) and WeddingHappy auto-generates a detailed checklist of everything you need to do to get ready for the big day. Not only that, it outlines a timeline for each item so you don’t have to figure out deadlines for yourself. 

Upgrading to the  Premium version allows you to share and collaborate with your partner. If you’re the type to keep putting things off, this app will help keep you accountable.

Pricing: Free (Premium features from $3.99 – $24.99)
Devices: Available for iOS and Android

2. Wedding Planner

What can’t this app do? Wedding Planner by The Knot is a one-stop-shop for wedding planning and inspiration. 

The app features a fun Style Quiz so you can get a concrete idea of your wedding vision – perfect for the bride-to-be who isn’t quite sure what she wants! Once you’ve settled on a style, add inspiration from Pinterest or photos from your phone. Then send everything to your wedding planner and vendors in one click!

Other features include:

  • Free, customizable wedding website templates
  • All-in-one registry and RSVP management (meal choice, plus ones, etc.)
  • Auto-generated, customizable wedding checklist
  • Wedding day timeline that auto-updates as you check things off your “To Do” list

3. Table Plan

Any bride will tell you that one of the most dreaded tasks in wedding planning is the seating chart. Even with a wedding planner, it’s on the couple to decide who sits where.  But the days of moving different coloured Post-It notes around are gone. 

The Table Plan seating chart app lets you select the size, position, and number of people at each table. Easily import your guest list from other apps and move individual or multiples guests around the tables with the drag and drop feature. Name or number your tables and add or delete guests as needed.

You can also tag guests with special requirements (dietary needs, kids, etc.) and export everything into a PDF chart that can be sent to your planner and venue. 

Pricing: Free
Devices: iPhone and iPad only

4. Honeyfund Wedding Registry

Destination weddings can be a tricky gift-giving ordeal for your guests. Cash gifts are more common now than they’ve ever been. But if you’d still prefer to do a registry, Honeyfund allows your guests to give you something special without having to worry about bringing it along to your Rocky Mountain wedding.

Add anything online to your list or register for cash donations for specific goals like a honeymoon fund or a downpayment for your first home.

Pricing: Free
Devices: Available for iOS and Android

5. The Guest

For a while, it seemed that creating a special hashtag just for your wedding was the way to see all the great photos your guests take throughout the day. It quickly picked up steam as a popular wedding tip. But getting all your guests to remember to use the hashtag is easier said than done. 

With The Guest (formerly known as Veri), you simply create an event for the day of your wedding and invite all your guests via their phone number or email. Once they accept the invite, any photos they take during the event will share automatically to the app! So you won’t miss a thing. No uploading, and no separate camera app – just high-resolution photos and videos that you can download in full, any time.

The best part about the app for destination weddings is that guests who can’t make it can still open the app and view all the photos and videos in realtime. It’s a must-have for your Rocky Mountain wedding!

6. The Bridesmaids

Your bridal party is there to help you get through the planning phase and to coordinate details on the day itself. But even the best of friends with the best intentions can get a little sidetracked in all the excitement! 

The Bridesmaids app helps to keep all communication and coordination in one place. So bridal showers, bachelorette parties, dress shopping, and more can all be kept on track. The app features a chat feature, lists, and calendars that the whole bridal party can collaborate on together.

Pricing: Free
