Wedding planning can be stressful. Fortunately, the process can be a whole lot easier with the right tech by your side. If you are working hard to arrange the perfect ceremony, give the following tools a try. You’ll be amazed at how much a little tech can do!
Create a Wedding Website
Creating a wedding website is a great way to keep your ceremony organized. A wedding website can help your guests to locate hotel bookings in your area, find your registry, get ceremony details, and RSVP to your invitations. For easy site-building, try The Knot, Wedding Wire, or Squarespace. You’ll be able to design your own site, share the story of your romance, connect with other wedding planners, and more! For best results, create your wedding website before sending out invites. That way you can add your URL to your invitations, ensuring that all of your guests know where to go for ceremony details.
Go Virtual Shopping
Thanks to the wide world of wedding apps, you don’t have to try on hundreds of dresses to find the perfect one anymore. Design, create, and (virtually) try on the dress of your dreams with Wedding Reality Inc.’s Wedding Dress Studio. The app lets you upload a picture of yourself, and then see how different dress styles work with your body shape. If Wedding Dress Studio isn’t for you, give Wedding Look Book a try. The Look Book helps you to find budget-savvy dresses, rings, and accessories for your upcoming ceremony.
Hire a Videographer
With so much improved video technology at our fingertips, it’s not surprising that wedding videos are becoming wildly popular. In fact, the average couple now spends approximately $1,700 on their wedding video. By hiring a videographer, you can even livestream your wedding on the web while it happens, ensuring that long-distance friends and family get the chance to be a part of your ceremony. After your nuptials, you’ll be able to look back on your video and recapture your fondest wedding memories anytime! In a cinch, your video can even be used to take still snapshots (very handy if your photographer never shows up!)
Use Outside-the-Box Camera Technology
For a wedding video with a real “wow” factor, why not use a drone to capture a bird’s-eye-view of your wedding? Drones cost as little as $80 per hire, and can be a fun addition to your ceremony. If you think drone technology might be a tad too much for your elderly relatives to handle, try using a GoPro camera to get some unique wedding shots. For a fun angle, you can even attach your GoPro to your bouquet, ensuring that your bouquet-toss shot is picture-perfect.
