There’s a new wedding app that’s oh-so perfect for the tech savvy bride and groom-to-be…  it’s called Appy Couple and it’s a creative new way for you to share all your wedding information leading up to the big weekend.

Appy Couple
Fun and functional, Appy says you can choose from hundreds of design themes and create a beautiful wedding app (and website!) in minutes. Then add your engagement photos, stories of when you first met and how he proposed, along with all the important details for your wedding weekend. You can also list the bridal party – with photos! – and include a guestbook. Once it’s ready, send a special email to invite your guests to download the free app on Android or iPhone and login to your app via a special code.

We first heard about Appy when Breakers bride and groom-to-be Danielle & Matt told us they were using it! (Click here to see Danielle & Matt’s fab engagement photos!)

Appy Couple

“We had recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal about “Appy Couple” and loved the idea,” Danielle says. “In general, Matt and I are private people and a wedding website was just not our style. The app was one creative way to still have a place where information is easily accessible, without the public presence of a website. Our friends and family love it.”

Get started: Create your Appy Couple today!
