Scrap the scrapbook – organizing a wedding has gone digital

For decades, brides to be around the world have prepared for their wedding by cutting pictures out of magazines and creating a scrapbook of their favourite ideas. Although this is a great way to build an idea of the aesthetic you want for your big day, scrapbooking takes a lot of time and a lot of effort. What’s more, finding old clippings and articles in your pile of papers can be a challenge, making it all too easy to lose vital information and forget all those great ideas.

Luckily, the 21st century has a solution to this age old problem: the wedding app. Designed specifically to make life easier for couples planning their big day, wedding apps can help you to bring all of your ideas together in one easy-to-sort place. As @brides says, “Tech can be infused into every part of the wedding, including the planning, all the events surrounding the big day, the attire, the actual wedding, and, of course, documentation.” Keep reading to find out more.
