While my wife and I were planning our wedding, we had flown up to Toronto for 3 days to pick our vendors (we were living in Boston at the time). As it turns out, it was fairly aggressive for us to try and pick out all of the vendors within a 72 hour period. Even though we had back-to-back scheduled appointments for the full 3 days, the process of meeting with potential vendors is also a learning experience. The more vendors you meet, the more you learn about what you want and, therefore, are able to better articulate your ideas to other vendors (after all, they are the pros).
As we moved throughout the day, we quickly realized our vision for the wedding and we were ready to find vendors in other categories who could help us execute these ideas. The only issue was, we didn’t know how to find these vendors on-the-go. Ah, if we only had access to information while driving around that would help us continue our search….
We are happy to introduce WeddingWire for the iPhone, the first mobile planning application for the iPhone. While version 1.0 focuses on the heavy task of locating and finding local vendors, you can be sure that there is much more to come soon.
For now, we invite you to visit the Apple iTunes App Store, search for “weddingwire” and pull down the FREE iPhone application. You’ll be able to search our database of over 100,000 vendors based on your current location and map their address, call them directly, read real bride reviews, and even look at promotions they might be offering…all from the convenience of your iPhone.
Mobile wedding planning has arrived!
