That’s a Wrap!

Weekly Wrap Ups

Photos by:

The year is officially coming to a close, and we’re becoming a bit wistful over all of the amazing weddings we’ve featured this year! We hope you’ve enjoyed our round-ups of our favorite moments from this year as much as we have, but we’re not quite done yet — we thought we’d compile the most popular songs from the weddings we’ve featured in 2011. Some are everlasting favorites, while others are definitely newcomers to the scene. What songs did you play or will play at your wedding? We’d love to know!

Wedding Songs Planner

We’re enthused to share this easy and user-friendly resource for choosing and compiling your wedding music from our sponsor Wedding Songs Planner! Wedding Songs Planner created a hassle-free way to curate your wedding playlist with their simple iPhone app.

From Wedding Songs Planner: After a frustrating experience trying to find the best wedding music on the web, we at Wedding Songs Planner made an iPhone app that would make choosing your wedding music easier and more fun! We looked through several lists of wedding song suggestions on the web and found that with most wedding song sites you can’t sort by genre, there’s no way to preview a song, and it’s not easy to remember which songs are your favorites. How frustrating!

Wedding Songs Planner has solved these problems by:
1. Sorting all of the songs by genre so you don’t have to spend several hours looking through songs that you’d never be interested in
2. Allowing users to preview songs with a YouTube video in one click
3. Allowing users to add a song to their favorite list with the click of a button. That list can then be easily emailed to your fiancé, DJ, friends, etc.

For $1.99 you can make your wedding planning less stressful and have fun picking the perfect music for your special day! You can find Wedding Songs Planner in iTunes.
