Best Apps For Wedding Planning

Best App to Get Inspired: Pinterest

It’s not very groundbreaking to list Pinterest as a must-have for wedding planning apps, but it just can’t be ignored. If you don’t already have a Pinterest account, it’s time to commit. Even if you don’t plan to mindlessly scroll, it’s the perfect app for organizing inspiration you find anywhere.

If you’re at a bridal boutique and a dress catches your eye before you’re ready to open your wallet, snap a photo. Then, upload it to a Pinterest board with the name and designer, and if you don’t want any of your fellow Pinners to see it, make the board private. 

Just like your to-do list, Pinterest can be a great tool to jog your memory about different ideas you’ve had over the course of planning. Try creating a single wedding board and breaking it into subcategories to keep yourself organized. And for even more convenience, add the Pinterest plug-in to your browser to easily save anything you see around the web.

Best for streamlining the wedding planning process: WedSites

Gone are the days of hacking together multiple spreadsheets and lugging around notebooks to keep track of all your wedding planning. WedSites is an all-in-one project management platform with everything you need to plan your wedding and streamline communication with your guests in one place.

To start, you’ll want to set up a wedding website to share all the important details and have your guests rsvp online. Wedding websites have been around for a while now but, unlike most wedding websites templates we’ve seen, there’s nothing cookie-cutter about WedSites.

You can change layouts, fonts, colors, and even upload your own graphics to make it truly one-of-a kind. Plus, you can quickly send out your own digital Save-the-Dates, invitations, and emails to your guest list if there are any last minute changes to your plans.

Inside the platform there’s also a suite of planning tools to keep you on track with all your wedding related tasks, budget expenses, vendor invoices, and more. You can even invite your partner and bridal party to collaborate on tasks to get it all done without having to scavenge through long email threads. See all the features they offer here.

Best for Setting a Wedding Budget: Mint

Before you gather too much inspiration, it’s important to stop and think about how much you actually want to spend on this event. Yes, it’s an important day, but is it so important that you should blow your life savings? It’s possible to have the wedding of your dreams within a reasonable budget. 

That’s where Mint comes in. Link your credit and bank accounts to the secure app, and set budgets for each wedding category — like clothes and accessories, decorations, flowers, and more. 

Mint will actually send you alerts when you’re going over your budget, or it can remind you via text or email about a payment that’s due to a vendor. You can easily check on your spending at any time during the planning process to ensure you’re staying on track.

Best for Planning Your Wedding Registry:

You may get so caught up in planning the actual day of the wedding that you totally forget there’s some planning involved in your gifts too. There are a number of registry sites to choose from, but the best apps include the following features:

Universal registry. This allows you to choose your gifts from anywhere on the web. You can shop at major department stores or the small business in your town selling that cute lamp. As long as it has a website, you can add the gift to your list.

Cash or charity funds. If you just moved into a new home or need some major upgrades, chances are you can fill your entire registry with linens and kitchen appliances. But if you’d also love some cash for your honeymoon (or for food and rent), you should be able to tastefully ask for that too. And for the extra generous couples, charity donations are also an option. 

Registry sync. If you’ve already done some browsing at other stores, you may have multiple registries you’d like to combine into one. With registry sync, you can put all your gifts on one site, so you don’t have to share multiple registry links with your wedding guests. takes the cake for best overall registry tool because of all the features mentioned above, plus the fact that you can reuse your account for future registries and wish lists. If you plan to welcome little ones anytime soon, you probably don’t want to create another registry account for your baby shower. Reusable apps are the best kind of apps.

Best App for Choosing your Wedding Palette: PANTONE Studio

For the design-obsessed bride or groom, we love the PANTONE Studio app. Start with any color you love and Pantone will give you all your complementary color options! Then you can keep playing until you find the palette of your dreams. We have too much fun in this app! 🙂

Best Wedding App for Planning Your Layout: Allseated

If you’re having your event at a large location with a huge area to fill, you’ll probably want an app just for space planning. Allseated also doubles as a guest list app, so you can first plan who will be attending, then figure out where you’re going to put everyone. 

This can be a great solution if you’re having backyard nuptials and want to make sure you’ll have enough space. It can also be helpful for setting up food stations, clearing enough room for a dance floor, and ensuring your college roommate doesn’t randomly end up sitting next to your Great Uncle Bob — unless she wants to, of course!

Best Multipurpose Wedding Planning Tool: JotForm

If you’ve made it through this list, you might be wondering if you really need all of these wedding planning apps. The short answer is, probably not all of them. 

JotForm gets the top spot for the minimalist bride and groom who want a solid all-in-one solution. First, it’s a great way to capture RSVPs, dinner choices, addresses, and even song requests. 

Just choose from one of the 120+ wedding-related templates, either for collecting info yourself or to share with your vendors or wedding planner. You can store all the info you collect from your guests in a cloud-based spreadsheet with JotForm Tables. From there, you can organize your guest list, create new to-do lists, and send payments to your vendors. 

The great thing about JotForm is that your table updates instantly and you can access it from anywhere. So if you’re sharing a doc with your entire wedding party, you can feel confident everyone will stay in the loop. It’s the perfect way to designate tasks so you can sit back and actually enjoy your wedding. After all, it’s your special day!
