Rather than keeping your guest list here, your vendors there and your checklist, well, somewhere...The Knot App centralizes all your planning in one place so you can breathe easy until you say, "I do." This wedding planning app acts as your very own assistant planner that's right in your pocket. With your new expert helper, you'll get peace of mind for every step of the process so you can sit back, relax and get married. Yes, that means you can find the best vendors, organize your guest list, create your wedding website and much more at the tip of your fingers.

Similar to the first meeting with a real-life wedding planner, we'll start by getting to know each other. After signing up, we'll ask you a few questions, like when you want to get married and your budget range. From there, you'll land on your personal dashboard where you'll have a snapshot of all your wedding planning stats. Sounds too good to be true? Read everything you need to know about The Knot App below so you can get started on your planning journey ASAP.

The Knot App Features: How to Best Use

To get started, download The Knot wedding planning app on the App Store or Google Play. Once you open the app, you'll be asked to log in or sign up for a The Knot account (Psst! It's free)—this gives you access to all of the tool's features. If you're starting from scratch, add in your and your partner's wedding details like your date, city, names, guest count and budget so you can get a personalized experience and use everything listed below.

  • The Knot Registry: Whether you need to fill a new home, have a dream honeymoon in mind or want to support a charity, we'll help you create and manage a wedding registry that's uniquely you. The Knot Registry seamlessly puts all your retailer and charity registries or cash and experience funds into one organized list. Keep track of what's purchased and what you're still wishing for. Make sure to enable your registry on your wedding website so it's easy for guests to find.
  • The Knot Invitations and Paper: Get all your invitations and other wedding-related stationery through The Knot. There are dozens upon dozens of designs to choose from that'll fit just about any couple's theme. You can even customize the look of the design and get a preview of your creation before ordering.
  • The Knot Guest List and RSVP Manager: This is your go-to place for everything guests-related. Collect addresses, import phone contacts or drag and drop spreadsheets you've already started. If you have multiple celebrations, we'll organize each by person and household, making your life easier. And the best part? Your Guest List Manager automatically syncs with your website, making it easy to share and receive all of the important details. Once you request your RSVPs you'll need to know where to find them. Allow guests to RSVP on your site, and The Knot will instantly update your guest list with their meal choices. Want a quick headcount? Find your RSVP tally on your dashboard or in "Your guests & RSVPs" section on The Knot, your personal wedding planner app. Plus, track who gifted what and who you still have to thank after the wedding.
  • The Knot Wedding Checklist: Know what to do and when to do it so you and your partner can plan a wedding that's as unique as you. From getting reminders to insure your engagement ring to preparing your toasts, we got you covered. Looking for your personal vendor recommendations? They're right in your wedding checklist app to easily view and book. Don't forget to make your checklist your own by adding, removing and reordering tasks. Need to arrange for pet boarding? There's a task for that. Have to renew your passport for your honeymoon? We'll make sure you're ready for departure.
  • The Knot Budget Tool: Stay on top of your wedding planning budget and spending levels with a useful budgeter. Simply input your estimated budget, and we'll provide recommended spending amounts for each expense while keeping track of your actual costs. Trust us, wedding planning on a budget has never been so stress-free.
  • The Knot Style Quiz: Not sure what your wedding vibe should be? We'll help you find a wedding vision that represents you while simultaneously showing you the best pros for your style and budget. Take the Style Quiz so you can answer questions that'll tell us which things you like and dislike. Then, we'll pull together a wedding vision just for you, complete with your style description and color suggestions. We'll also keep your favorite ideas organized in vendor-specific boards. Plus, upload inspiration from your camera roll, Pinterest or wherever else you'd like. Once you've nailed your style, share your wedding vision with vendors and loved ones with a single click.

The Knot App Cost

With all the great benefits of this planning tool, you're probably wondering, "How much does The Knot cost?" Well as an early wedding gift to all the to-be-weds out there, The Knot Wedding Planner App is free with no hidden fees.

Can You Share The Knot App Login?

Yes, couples can share a login with one email and password, but accounts can't be combined. The best way to share The Knot App between two people is by having each person download the app on their device. Then all you need to do is log in with your credentials.

The Knot App Reviews

Now that we've told you about all the amazing things on The Knot App, we thought it would be useful if you saw some testimonials. Use these reviews as the extra push you need to download the best wedding planning app.

My All-In-One Little Helper

Two of my friends used The Knot for their wedding planning and recommended the site to me as I had no idea where to start with wedding planning besides finding my venue. This app and the website were so helpful with wedding planning and made the process much less stressful (although wedding planning IS definitely super stressful lol). The fact it is a free site is absolutely incredible since weddings are extremely expensive as is. The site allowed you to search for vendors in any category you needed, allowed you to keep track of your budget and how much you have spent, create a wedding vision if you had or wanted one, create a guest list and have everyone RSVP online (which I did not do but others did and they said it was easy to do), and had month to month checklists for you to accomplish which was extremely helpful. Making my wedding website and then my wedding registry was not hard using the app either. I would recommend using The Knot for wedding planning for anyone who may need help during the process, especially if you aren't hiring a wedding planner to help you during the process; which I did not as I could not afford to do so. Can't recommend the app enough!

Keeps Me on Track

The app provided a lot of important wedding details I never would have considered. It also reminds me if a plan is past due, so I don't push it off too close to the wedding. Amazing app!

The Knot App Is What I Use Everyday

I cannot recommend this app enough! You can budget, look into vendors, send invites, make a whole website and edit it however you want. They have a pre-made to-do list that you can edit. It's amazing. AND FOR FREE. I felt super overwhelmed when I started this whole process but this app made it super simple. For my fiancé and I, it's been what we come back to time and time again. I even got my sister to use it for her wedding. It's amazing!

Wedding Planning Can Be Fun and Easy

I was totally stressed about having to plan my wedding...and then I downloaded The Knot. Honestly, it's been smooth sailing since, I made our website, everyone can RSVP there and choose meal plans, it has our registry and I no longer feel like all of my information is all over the place, scribbled into my notebooks. Edit: We got married! The Knot really made the whole planning process FUN. Go for it, go all out on your website and check your app every day just to stay excited. It'll be worth it.
