From changing your Facebook relationship status to “engaged”, to Instagramming the ring, social media has likely played a prominent role in spreading your happy news. However, once you dive into the sometimes tangled, World Wide Web of wedding planning, the number of apps available for those approaching the aisle can be overwhelming.
Appy Couple, a new-to-the-scene wedding app, provides multitasking modern brides with an easy-to-use tool that blends the social interaction of Facebook with the organization capabilities of a wedding website. From RSVPs to the registry, travel info to image uploads, Appy Couple glamorously guides guests to your happy ending, streamlining the variety of wedding planning tools — DIY websites, photo sharing apps, social networks and email invitations – into one brilliant mobile location.
After an extremely successful beta run, the app is now open to Apple and Android users with a pre-launch pricing of just $28 for the entire suite (includes a coordinating wedding website, coordinating emails and unlimited guest invites and customization). For the next 24 hours, you can get Appy Couple for only $20 by using the code INTIMATE14 when you check out.
Couples set out on their magical, interactive journey by selecting one of over a hundred chic themes, categorized by color and style (modern, vintage, classic, etc.), and begin building their digital sharing suite with customized widgets, smoothly streamlined for easy access. It can be personalized with uploaded image galleries, songs added straight from iTunes and more, all in a sleek step-by-step guide.
After receiving your unique wedding code, guests can begin interacting on your custom designed wedding page, leaving virtual toasts, uploading images in real time with Facebook, Twitter and email integration, and striking up conversations with other guests through the manageable Key People message boards, ideal for intimate weddings. You can relay information to guests, such as notes on childcare, dress code and accommodations, as widgets keep them updated on weather and travel information from Expedia. Include them in the wedding planning process with polls – merlot or cabernet sauvignon? – or even take meal orders for plated receptions.
Appy Couple truly takes the traditional wedding website to a never-before-seen interactive level. Simple, social and stylish, we finally have an app that synchs with our social media-driven world. Check out the video on how it works:
