Appy Couple seems to be taking creating a storm in the Wedding World and when I looked into it further I realised why. It is an absolutely genius app created to perform as a multi functional tool to replace the old fashioned methods of communicating with your bridal party. Appy Couple replaces the need and expense of building your own complicated wedding website and provides you with an easy way to stay in touch with everyone, allowing you to organise your wedding with ease.
Once the app has been created, the couple can enter their guest list
manually or upload it from a spreadsheet, and invite family and friends
to access the app for free, using a special code. Each guest will then
have access to information, including wedding events, dates, venues,
travel, accommodation and last-minute changes. There is also a privacy
function that allows the bride and bridegroom to select certain guests,
like members of the bridal party, to receive private messages. There is however one drawback (that Appy Couple is currently trying to
amend). Guests can upload photos and post messages in real time on the
couple's board, however you may not wish for all of your hen and stag
photos to end up on show to Granny? You are able to delete them once
they are up, but the live feed may mean there could be time in between
up load and approval! Looking on the bright side though, it is a great
way to live stream photos of your Wedding for guests that can not make
it on the day.
At the moment Appy Couple is free (you have to apply for an invitation code), however there are rumoured plans to start charging a one time fee for the app with free unlimited app downloads for guests fairly soon.
