WeddingHappy: Wedding Planning App Review & $25 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway


Planning my wedding was fun yet a daunting task.  We were living in St Louis while the wedding was in New Jersey and we had wedding guests coming from other states such as Washington, DC and Florida and internationally as far as Bangkok, London and Australia.  Many of the international guests were part of the wedding party too so to keep everyone abreast of our plans I made a website which detailed the bios of my wedding party, location, theme and schedules.  Mind you, this was 10 years ago before blogs even existed so I didn't realize I was ahead of the trend : )

The actual planning part i.e. nitty gritty detail was done on an excel spreadsheet which I kept on my desktop.  Of course while we were on the run the excel spreadsheet was not accessible and I had to print everything out and place it in a binder.  Now with the advent of iphones there's no need to lug around a big wedding binder.  It seems there's an app for everything and now for those who are planning a wedding, WeddingHappy offers a free Wedding Planning app so you can focus on the joy of planning your wedding.


WeddingHappy provides a simple solution to keep track of the tasks and vendors needed for planning a wedding and all from the ease of your iphone and ipad so you can plan on the go.  This app allows customization to your needs whereby you can delete tasks that don't apply.  A bonus is the wedding planning checklist is integrated with your calendar which is a great feature so you can be on top of your list of things to do and be alerted to your next task.  And users can easily communicate their planning updates to their friends and family since WeddingHappy links to Facebook, Twitter, email and even Siri.  This app would have certainly come in handy when I was planning my wedding!

Don't stress too much about the wedding! :) Everything will be perfect - it's all in the mind!

Make sure you tell someone to put aside some food for you to take in the limo after the wedding. Chances are you won't even have time to eat at the reception and you'll be starving!! Someone packed ours... and only put cake. I was so mad. Make sure they put some of the real food. I mean, you paid for it, so you should at least get to eat some of it!! :)

Don't stress. Get a lot of rest before the big day. :)

Catherine said:

If you don't have things done a couple days before, either let someone else handle it or don't worry about it. The days leading up to your wedding should be stress-free and a time to spend with family and friends...not running around like crazy fixing little details that no one will notice!

It is about your and your spouse - don't lose sight of that.

Best advice for a bride is that people will give 'advice' even when it isnt asked for; take with a grain of salt!

Cheryl said:

Keep it simple--it's a much more enjoyable and memorable experience.

Don't invite a bunch of people you don't know just to make someone else happy!

Carol L. said:

Remember the reason for the wedding. :) Nothing is more important then the love you have for one another. Don't let stress over the planning interfere with that and what's important. Let others help and ease the stress.

Schedule part of the day before for a facial or a massage. Do not take new medication the night before the wedding either. (I did --was not a good reaction).

Have two binders for all your stuff! One giant binder was for all my general ideas (pictures torn from magazines, fliers from bridal show vendors, etc) and then I had a separate binder for actual info once final decisions were made (vendor contracts, receipts/invoices, etc.) It seems excessive but it really helped me organize the millions of things that I ended up liking vs. actually doing. PS: Enjoy the ride no matter how stressful. I'm still having wedding planning withdrawal. :)

my tip is to learn to share household responsibilities like cooking :)

Do sweat on small details.

wizardewu said:

The wedding doesn't have to be big and fancy for it to be a success. Your friends and family being there to celebrate with you will be the essential thing.

Make a playlist with your favorite songs while getting ready ! It always helps me to calm down before a big event. A little dancing and singing always manages to keep things in control.

Mare/TommyGirl said:

One tip is not to sweat the small stuff, leave that to your maid of honor and bridesmaids.

Kristin said:

Don't get angry. And say I love you every day!

Tip- Remember that it's the marriage that counts, not the wedding. If little things go wrong on the wedding day, it's ok. Probably nobody else will even notice. Keep a smile. :)

Just remember that your love is what is important not the material things.

Take a break from all the wedding planning every once in a while to spend some special time with your husband to be. This way you take time to remember why it is you are getting married and what is most important to you

Relax and enjoy the day -- it will go so quickly, and stress can block out the great parts!

Stephanie Phelps said:

Enjoy every minute no matter what happens! It will not be the end of the world if it rains or someone walks to fast during the ceremony! Have fun!

Hannah said:

Stay relaxed...And do most of your preperation BEFORE the big day. :)

Go into your wedding day knowing that not everything is going to run to plan and be ready to just go with the flow!

Be sure to eat even though you're nervous. Bite-size foods & drinking with a straw will prevent makeup from being ruined. tylerpants(at)gmail.com

Biggest tip I can offer: don't sweat it. People don't remember the favors, or the napkins, or the placecards. They remember if they had a good time!
