Do you really need an app for your wedding? Our answer is obviously a resounding yes, but we wanted to give you the details so you can decide for yourself if you need a wedding app for your special day!
Wedding apps are useful—not just for the couple—but for the guests. We put together a list of four reasons you should consider a wedding app for your special day. (The best part: You don’t have to spend a dime to find the perfect wedding app.)
1. All of your information in one place
Let’s face it, it’s hard to keep track of paper these days. Once your guests send their RSVP cards back to you (if they do…), you’re lucky if the actual invite doesn’t get buried in stack of Bed Bath & Beyond coupons and other junk mail. A wedding app ensures that all of the important information about your wedding is in one place and is easy to access for your guests. They can check details on-the-go, and even do things like order a registry gift while they’re on the way to your wedding ceremony!
2. Collect guests’ photos
A wedding app like Joy allows you to collect your guests’ wedding photos—before, during, and after your special day. When guests have your wedding app on their smartphones, you won’t miss any moment. With a few clicks, guests can upload their favorite candid shots. And after the celebration, you’ll get to experience your wedding from hundreds of points of view.
3. Last minute updates
If you’ve been to a wedding it might seem like everything went off without a hitch, but the reality is things rarely go as planned. Joy allows you to send last minute updates to your guests—from impending rain clouds to highway detours, you can alert you guests with up-to-the-minute changes to your schedule of events.
4. Your guests can get to know each other
Weddings usually bring together two distinct groups of people, so it’s rare if everyone knows everyone. A wedding app lets guests get to know one another. It’s fun to see who is on what “team” and how each guest knows the couple. An app is also a great way to showcase your wedding party!
