When it comes to wedding planning during the digital age, the statistics speak for themselves:

So if you’re keen to go digital while planning your wedding planning, use these apps to your advantage:
Tell someone you’re getting married and instantly be met with: “Are you on Pinterest?” Undeniably, Pinterest was the original wedding planning site, allowing couples to easily search everything from dresses to décor. As well as being able to search the site for inspiration, you can also ‘pin’ ideas seen elsewhere, so that everything is in one handy place. Plus, if you love being super organised, break things up by organising everything into categories. Get pinning here.
While you won’t necessarily be able to plan a wedding on Instagram, it’s the perfect place for gathering up ideas. Use hashtags such as #weddingplanning and #weddingwednesday to see how others styled their day. And don’t forget to check out potential vendors too. Set up an Instagram account here.
When it comes to #wedmin, arm yourself with Postable. Undeniably, one of the most tedious parts of wedding planning is collecting addresses for invites… yawn! There will be several calls to your mum and texts to friends so take the pain away by creating a free Postable account. Log in, enter your guests’ email addresses and then it goes out to them with a simple form to fill in. Voila! See for yourself here.
