Couples who choose to have their love celebration far away from home, meaning that they have to travel to their wedding destination, go down a different road when it comes to planning. While it sounds exotic and like a unique way to start your life together as a married couple, throwing a destination wedding can be a quite stressful journey. Take all the stress that is already involved in putting up this big (or small) ceremony and now think about what it’s like to set up a wedding party in a land far far away.
Thankfully, these days, there’s pretty much an app for anything. When it comes to the world of weddings and wedding planning in particular, you won’t believe the amount of information there’s out there. After all, there’s a little bit of everything when it comes to this great operation: design, creativity, food, logistics and of course, love. So if you’ve ever said to yourself, ‘ I wonder if there’s an app for this,’ then the answer is probably ‘yes.’ From hotel bookings to finding the perfect wedding planner, here are five apps that will help you two lovebirds in cases you decided to tie the knot away from home.
