The Cambridge dictionary puts a wedding concept in few words stating that it is ‘a marriage ceremony and any celebrations such as a meal or a party that follow it’. Seems like a piece of cake. However, unlike the definition, the planning of this party is not that easy-peasy. In reality, wedding management is a highly wearisome and complicated process. The young couple has to think about hundreds of people and thousands of details including clothes, transport, bridesmaids, best man, hen party, stag night, guests, in-laws, parents, dress, flowers, cakes, food, competitions, venues, band or DJ, decorations and a long-awaited honeymoon. Seems like a really tough work. In the past, you ended up with Excel spreadsheets, Powerpoint presentations, and lots of Word documents. Is it any different nowadays? I am sure there are some people who still plan their party in an old-fashioned way. However, there are plenty of wedding apps available. They can help you manage your big day more efficiently. I am sure that some of them might match your needs perfectly.
