We've been talking about the latest wedding planning apps that are taking over the big planning binder. In Part I, we talked specifically about inspiration and collaboration tools.

This time around, we'll be hitting the big players in RSVP and wedding website apps and tools that make dispersing information and collecting RSVPs much easier. Blanket warning: Watch out for gendered language and more "traditional" options than we're used to around these parts.

MyWedding

We've partnered with MyWeddingThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them for years because of their awesome offbeat templates and 100-percent free features, so we're pretty partial. They offer galleries, guestbooks, music, RSVPs, personal blogs, group emails, and more in a pretty stylish way for a set price with no monthly fees after that. Learn more here.

Glo

GloThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them offers paperless wedding communications, including wedding website information, multiple event tracking, RSVP collection, communication options for guests, beautiful templates (or design your own), and a free trial to check it all out.

HitchedUp/Minted

RSVP Wedding Manager

RSVP Wedding Manager offers guest list tracking, wedding planning checklists, budgeting tools, mailing label printing, and RSVP tracking for a yearly fee.

wedding-party-app

Wedding Party

They ♥ OBB; we ♥ themThis post features Offbeat Vendors! Check out their vendor listing to see how they cater to Offbeat Brides:

  1. I'm a little bummed out by this post – it has factual inaccuracies, and the one sentence summaries that all kinda sound the same (except for the sponsors) don't accurately represent the features of each of these tools. (For example, Appy Couple has no monthly fee – just a flat one time price structure.).

    I get that OBB wants to support your sponsors, and I do too – many of our vendors were found at the Lovesick Expo or through the site – but if you're doing a survey of all the tools out there, the sponsor products should be able to stand on their own. (And I think they can!)

    I'd love to see a detailed comparison grid that breaks down all the features available – each of these products has limitations that make them better suited for various types of weddings, and there isn't really a good guide out there to help make the decision that I've been able to find.

    Sorry if this comes across as a bit harsh – I clicked hoping this post would save some research time, and was sad that I'm back to square one since it reads more like an advertorial post than a true survey of the choices (despite not being tagged as such) 🙁
