1. Pinterest

What it is:
Pinterest is an online community for members who “pin” images and links of the things they love. To join in the fun, all you do is pin an image of something you love and others can view it, like it, add a comment or re-pin it to their own board. To make it even easier, everything integrates seamlessly with Facebook, Twitter and StumbleUpon.

Pinterest Board

Why it’s Wedding Worthy:
Use Pinterest to build and organize your digital inspiration board. Add to it, delete pins or borrow ideas from friends whenever you’d like. The best part is that you can invite your vendors (like us) to collaborate on a Pinterest board with you. Just imagine how much time you’ll save bouncing ideas with your wedding planner on your “bouquet board” than scheduling multiple in-person meetings.

Why it’s Wedding Worthy:
Sometimes it can be frustrating to wait weeks (or months) to see the results of your professional wedding pictures. With all the buzz around the day it is a lot more exciting when your friends and family start uploading photos they may have taken to Facebook or sending them to you via email. However, with a wedding of typically 50+ attendees who are likely to have their cell phones, Instagram is a quick and easy way to get multiple perspectives on your big day, and it lets your guest be involved. Plus, you get a bunch of great images that your photographer is sure to have missed! You can check out this link to learn how to organize it.

4. AppyCouple

Appy Couple gives you a dashboard to create your own apps. Remember when building your own website was only accessible to major corporations and developers? Until WordPress and Tumblr stumbled along and gave us all legs to stand on? Appy Couple is like that for apps, with a focus on weddings. Other companies like Yapp and most recently Kleverbeast are doing similar things in the space, with one focused on more niche instances like events and others offering a platform to build any kind of app you’d like.
