Planning your big day can get quite overwhelming, with lots of things to keep track of. Here’s a list of wedding planning apps and websites to help you get started and organised.
Planning your big day can get quite overwhelming. It’s a pretty big event with lots of things to take care of. It’s a huge task even for those that are natural at organising big events. There are wedding invitation cards to customise, seating charts to make, music playlists to create, list of solemnisers to look through, and a whole lot more on the list before you get to actually marry the love of your life. But the good news is, there are plenty of online resources out there these days to help make this process a little bit more enjoyable!
The best part about these wedding planning apps and websites? They are all free to use!
For colour schemes and inspirations, PANTONE Studio
When it comes to the visual part of planning, a good place to start will be the colour palette you want to stick with. Select a colour to begin with, and the app will suggest for you complementary colours to go with that colour.
Pantone Studio is available for download on the iOS.
Generate colour combination and palettes with Coolors.co
Coolors.co is one of the handiest online tool people use for work purposes and personal too. There’s a bunch of things you can do, but the colour picker tool is perhaps the most useful. Just pick two colours to start with, and it will show you their complementary colour schemes. You can also explore trending palettes to help get inspired!
Coolors.co is also available for download on the iOS.

Create your own designs on Canva
Another life saver for many, Canva has so many templates for anything you need to create. You can even digitally create invitation cards here for your upcoming wedding. The best thing about Canva is that it’s simple to use for everyone, so you don’t have to be a pro at Photoshop to create your own designs. There is a Premium feature for Canva that unlocks more items, but the free version itself already has a lot of resources.
All your music playlists covered, Spotify
Music can invoke so many memories for most people. It’s the easiest way to get people in a happy, celebratory mood, and most importantly, dance the night away! Use Spotify to short list songs for your march-in, first dance, or even to play during your wedding videos. If you’re wondering where to start, this Spotify playlist has the most popular wedding songs globally. And if you’re looking for an alternative wedding playlist, we got one here for you.
For items you don’t mind re-using, Carousell
We admit, Carousell can be a seller’s nightmare (and buyers too!). But it can sometimes be a resourceful place to pick up some second-hand items for your wedding day. Some pre-loved items to-be-brides often get through Carousell are easel stands for welcome signs, decorative items for the reception, and wedding tea sets for tea ceremony.
We hope these wedding planning apps and websites can make your wedding planning a little bit easier, so that you can set out to plan the wedding that you want. Happy planning!
