TECH BYTE: Smartphone Apps for Stress-Free Wedding Planning

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Valentine’s Day may be over, but love is still in the air.

If you recently got engaged, use technology to help with your wedding planning.

Tech can make it less stressful, and more fun.

Zola is a great smartphone app to have to keep all things wedding in one place.

If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry!

Zola will give you a to-do list, and send you notifications if you need reminders on when to get things done.

Also use it to create and manage your free wedding website.

A website helps with sharing details about the big day, along with your registry, and guest list.

You can even design your wedding invites on Zola, as well.

But if you’d rather send out a digital invite for your bridal shower, wedding, or even thank you notes afterward, the Punchbowl: Invites & eCards app is just what you need.

You have thousands of online invitations and save-the-dates to choose from.

Your guests will receive the invites by e-mail or text message.

The Honeyfund Wedding Registry app is great for those couples who may already live together, and just want some donations to their honeymoon fund instead of another blender.

A trip to Europe or Hawaii isn’t cheap.

Use the app to collect cash for your vacation, or register for gift cards from nearly 200 travel, experience, dining, and retail brands.

Once you do make it to your wedding day, make sure you and your guests download The Guest-Photo Sharing app.

They can automatically share all of the photos and videos they take – from exchanging your vows, to the reception – as it’s all happening.

You just need their e-mail address or phone number, and invite your guests to the event. No tagging needed.

The Knot and WeddingWire are also great apps for all of you future brides.

They even have websites if you don’t want to use your phone.
