Our Favorite iPhone Apps for Wedding Planning


Here are some free apps for the iPhone that we think will aid you in your wedding planning process.  Each app assists with many areas of your planning, and can provide much needed assistance and support for when you are on the go.




youtube videos online


The native YouTube app is perfect to listen to single songs you are considering for your father-daughter dance or cake cutting song.  You can listen to different versions of music for your wedding ceremony’s prelude, processional and recessional.  Additionally, you can view promo videos from local wedding vendors or get advice and ideas from wedding shows.  Additionally, check out the Pandora radio app for more general music suggestions and ideas for your prelude and cocktail hour music.


Wedding Wire

The app from Wedding Wire puts all of your wedding planning in your hands. Not only do you have access to the information of local wedding vendors, you can keep a personalized wedding planning checklist and budget.  Everything you need is right at your finger tips.



evernote for the iphone

Full disclosure—I love Evernote.  Evernote collects items you want to save into a digital notebook.  Everything—including emails, web clips, audio memos, pictures, screenshots—everything!  With the the desktop version that syncs to both the iPhone app and the online account, you can have all of your wedding details—from inspiration pictures to vendor communications and more with you at all time. You can even tweet to your Evernote account!


the knot

This app features frequently asked questions by brides, all answered by The Knot’s Carley Roney. You can also interact with other brides to ask your own questions about wedding planning or answer a few from other excited brides.  This is the perfect app to have on the go when you have questions that need an immediate answer or the ability to at least steer you in the right direction.


Brides Dressing Room

I absolutely love this app!  Sharing the hottest wedding dresses from the industry’s best designers, you can pick out your favorite dresses and find a retailer close to you who carries the line and also schedule an appointment.

This is astrology meets gorgeous color!  Created by the talented Pantone, you can get inspiration of your favorite wedding colors with this app.  Each day is assigned a color and a “colorstrology”, but also shows the vibrant shades and hues of the Pantone’s hottest colors.  Perfect for when you are looking for complementing colors for your bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers or linens.  Be sure to check the colorstrology for your wedding day and see what it says!

Color Fabulous: Sunset Gold



Today is June 11, 2009 and today’s color of the day is Sunset Gold. 


Sunset Gold
Pantone 13-0940


You were born with a nice combination of strength and sensitivity. You function best when you have a partner or a good friend with whom to share your adventures. People can talk to you because of your depth of understanding. The challenges that occur in your life serve to uncover your innate strengths which may lie dormant if not for those experiences. Wearing, meditating or surrounding yourself with Sunset Gold helps increase your self-discipline and transform hurts and setbacks into knowledge and opportunities.


I love the subtle richness of Sunset Gold, and it is amazing to see how many ways it can make itself present in wedding design.  It can be very understated or bold.  I would love to see it played up with other fun colors like Caribbean Sea from last year’s color report, or other rusts, reds, golds and yellows for depth.
