Romance? There’s an App for That!

What Makes True Love iPhone

We love a good wedding app, don’t you? And we especially love a good wedding app that makes us feel…good. Which is exactly what legendary jeweler Tiffany’s new “What Makes Love True” app does. Rather than matching happy couples to their perfect rings, like its earlier iPhone app does, the new, multimedia-heavy app—FREE, and compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad—takes users on an interactive romantic journey. After you watch a short film about proposal stories titled “Will You Marry Me?” from director Ed Burns (which left nary a dry eye among us, truth be told), you can peruse tons of classic and exclusive films and music “for the heart,” enjoy audio-slideshow “love stories,” or avail yourself of romance advice. There’s also an awesome feature that lets you tag your most romantic memories anywhere on the face of the Earth. Like, say, Houston.

So far, users have raves for this romantic, interactive app. We’d love to know what you think of What Makes Love True. Download, explore, and comment here! No i-device? No prob. What Make Love True is also online!

Tiffany & Co. Launches Engagement Ring iPhone App

Monday, July 12th, 2010

With her social schedule and style sense (not to mention her gig forwarding messages from Sing-Sing resident Sally Tomato), we’re pretty sure that if Holly Golightly were around in 2010, she’d be packing an iPhone in her designer clutch.  Just imagine her joy at discovering that her beloved Tiffany’s had launched an app of its very own! That’s right, the famed jewelry retailer has introduced the Tiffany & Co. Engagement Ring Finder iPhone app. Browse Tiffany engagement ring styles (rings shown are true to size), view diamond carat weights (you can customize styles with six different carat sizes), zoom in on details, save choices and share favorites via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter, all from your iPhone or iPad (though not all features are compatible with the latter).

The best part? Though your genuine Tiffany diamond engagement ring might cost more than a new car (you’re MORE than worth it, of course), the Tiffany engagement ring iPhone app is FREE!

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes…Facebook!

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

First up, we’d like to remind you that Weddings in Houston has a fab-u-lous new Facebook page that’s already racked up more than 2,000 devoted fans. Aww… we love you too, ladies (and gents)! As for the rest of you—we really encourage you to check it out. It’s a great way to connect with other Houston brides, share tips, sympathize, support, offer opinions, seek advice and, of course, view awesome WIH fashion-show vids, get updates on new Weddings in Houston content and find out about upcoming, not-to-be-missed events.

We at the Houston Wedding Blog also heart Facebook’s handy Daisypath wedding and anniversary ticker app, which lets you, and all your Facebook friends, count down to your wedding date. Customize your Daisypath ticker with your own personal text, add it to your profile, and voila! Your FBFs will always know just how many days they have to wait until your big day.

Facebook is also fantastic for learning more about top Houston wedding vendors and experts, like Events in Bloom, Edible Designs by Jessie, Schwartz & Woodward, and many, many others.

And speaking of Facebook…while our fave social media site may be a vital part of a bride and groom’s life in SO many ways, this just may be taking a tiny step too far (or not, you be the judge!):
