Seating Chart ~The Genuine Wedding ~ (Free)
Is Takahashi, the Japanese foreign exchange student you met in college really going to enjoy sitting next your partner’s UFO conspiracy-nut Uncle at your wedding reception? NO! You’re gong to have to put some serious thought into your wedding seating chart. With Seating Chart, you can easily design custom dining room layouts for your wedding reception. It’s kind of fun too!
8mm ($1.99 for iPhone)
This App is amazing! I used it to shoot my own wedding. It’s pretty easy to have your friends download it and take cool vintage looking, video of your wedding. It makes for some classic film-like home-movie footage to look back on your special day. You can also easily edit your footage together into a cool music video with other iPhone or iPad apps like iMovie and Splice (which has a paid version and a free one. Both work just as good as iMovie in my opinion.) Now get out there and get married!
