Wedding organization: APPS

Sooo....I haven't mentioned this yet-- but I won an Ipad! Whoop! I re tweeted Diamond Nexxus Labs last week and entered on Sunday night- and Wednesday afternoon it arrived at my door step.

I took some time to DL the basic apps.. but if you are an Iphone or Ipad or ITouch user here are the goods ones I discovered:

Here is my top APP: THE KNOT 911.

My favorite section of the day is Etiquette. Even if you think you "know everything" about wedding "dont's" you should probably brush up on it....Really ladies- I'm serious. I've seen some seriously poor etiquette mentioned lately on the knot boards, on invites, etc...

We all know the basics... STDs 8 months before, invites 2 months, make a room block at your hotel for OOT guests, make up some welcome bags/boxes, don't sit Uncle Sam next to his Ex wife.

But believe me this APP covers it all.
I even had my FI read through some of the questions (basically, people write in their Q's and The Knot Carly provides the answers)... he he was like "did you know....!"  "Listen to this!!"... believe me there were even questions I thought were so far left field-- but I was interested to see the answers.

This one is a pretty obvious app. But of every app i have on my Ipad (including wheel of fortune and "pimple" popper this is BY far the most interactive. It even won an "app" award because it is so interactive and advanced. The APP itself is free and you get a pretty good amount of play with the free app. Of course you can "subscribe" to the magazine for 4.99 and get a ton more goodies. 

The best part is that you can link to anything you love. If you see shoes on page 40 that you will die without, click on them...and up comes not only their designer, and price, but also where to buy them. Click the link and poof! they are yours.. it's legit magic.

You can also organize complete wedding outfits and just like the knot it has a "Scrapbook" you can save all your favorite items too-- therefore, when you hit up your florist you can just flick through your fav. photos!

This app also makes you look super cool and collected and organized going to see vendors, when you don't slam 8987 magazine clippings of "things you kinda like"on the table


This is really the ultimate bridal gown and "look book" it offers hundreds and hundreds of looks and options, plus you can totally mix and match. It costs 1.99. But I mean that's your only investment.

It also saves you hours of searching online/through magazines.. so I think it's well worth the price.
