Costa Rica destination wedding planning made simple
Planning a destination wedding requires a bit more legwork, but AppyCouple lets brides and grooms stay on top of everything with a few simple clicks. This custom platform shares important details on travel and flight info, RSVP details, attire, lodging and more. What’s more, you can curate content to share with specific groups (like your bridal spa party), chat online in real time, and store unlimited photos.
Keeping track of finances
More couples are catching on to the cost-saving benefits of a wedding in Costa Rica, but even the thriftiest of couples can get carried away. Mint – a free app for iPhones and Android devices, can help manage your wedding budget with automatic updates and categorized data, bill reminders and more.
Wedding gift registry: there’s an app for that
In-store registries are a thing of the past with WeddingScan, an intuitive application that lets you add any product from any retail outlet by simply scanning the barcode with the iPhone app. If for some reason a bar code is unavailable, you can still add a photo and detailed description. The app also lets you alert friends and family about your registry via email or Facebook and notifies couples when items have been purchased.
