The wedding space is blowing up, with Appy Couple, Wedit, and Lover.ly offering brides ways to organize, plan, and share their wedding. But for attendees, something a little lighter may be in order. Perhaps, an Instagram-like sharing app that replaces those stupid disposable cameras.
That’s where WedPics comes in. The service is prepping for an August 7 launch of the app and website, but luckily we got a sneak peek during our Raleigh-Durham mini meetup. Essentially, WedPics is a mobile app that lets guests snap pictures and add cool filters (Instagram-style) at the wedding. The pictures then go into a unified wedding album for later perusal by the happy couple and/or their beloved guests.
But the service doesn’t pull from just one of our favorite photo sharing services, but two. The app has a Pinterest-esque structure to it, displaying images in that same half-drop grid format we’ve grown so accustomed to. Users have the option to “love” various images as well as comment on them.
The bride and groom can also write a little blurb to their users thanking them for attending and giving them any pertinent information they might need.
There is a slideshow feature, along with tabs to connect with different people or jot down a few notes. WedPics also offers printing services, ranging from a traditional photo album to canvases and iPhone covers.
The app for Android and iOS will go live on August 7, along with the website, but if you sign up now you’ll get 50 percent off the $99 flat rate price to brides and grooms.
