Weddings are commonly considered as one of the most important and memorable events in many people’s lives. They’re also quite often expensive and can cause a lot of stress. While, unlike other wedding focused apps, Make Your Wedding: Inspiration, Planning, and DIY Projects doesn’t explain how to take out the stressful elements, it does provide plenty of ideas for those who want to add a creative and personal touch to their day.

As the name suggests, the app includes 30 DIY projects, for a wide variety of skill levels, each providing a great and inexpensive solution for an important part of a wedding day. Information is provided on how to create attractive wedding favors and ring cushions, as well as table centerpieces and even jewellery for the bridesmaids.

In each case, things are divided up according to style, making it easy to browse when looking for some inspiration. Rustic Elegance, Soft Vintage, Colorful Whimsy, Breezy Beach and Modern Metallic are the themes covering a wide range of tastes. Everything is laid out attractively, too, as would be expected from an Open Air Publishing app. A mixture of videos and photos show visually how to achieve such things, as well as comprehensive lists and tips on all that’s needed to know. A difficulty rating ensures that no one tries to tackle something out of their skill level.

Rounding off the package is a short section on how to prepare for such DIY tasks. It’s not hugely comprehensive, but it does cover enough detail for most users. Being able to look up individual words within the text means that a glossary is already catered for, as well as breakdowns of measurements in both imperial and metric varieties.

Relatively inexpensive for such an interesting tome, Make Your Wedding: Inspiration, Planning, and DIY Projects should provide a plentiful and attractive supply of inspiration for those who are planning a wedding in 2013 or beyond.

I’m not quite at the wedding planning stage of life but I know plenty of people who are. It’s a stressful time but also a hugely enjoyable experience. One of the latest wedding apps to hit the app store, Vera Wang on Weddings, intends to hit the spot in both upping the excitement quota and reducing some stress.

Free to download, Vera Wang on Weddings offers Vera’s personal style advice for the occassion and the ability to select a dress from the Vera Wang Bridal Collection. Alongside that are tools in which the user can organize wedding guests including invitations, RSVPs and seating arrangements, along with the ability to manage contact details for everyone involved in the event.

A Wedding To-Do list as well as Inspiration Boards, allowing for new and creative designs as well as the option to view existing gallery images, completes the app.

For anyone planning a wedding at the moment, Vera Wang on Weddings is clearly worth a look.
