Wedding LookBook by The Knot is an attractive and fast resource for browsing wedding dresses.
The new mobile app for iPhone and Android provides a massive collection that’s easy to filter and save.
You can copy an image to photos or email without signing into your account but you’ll still need an account if you want to save your selections for future reference.
There are over 6000 dresses featured in the app and they didn’t forget to include your girls. They have collections for Bridesmaid, Mother of the Bride, and Flower Girl too.
Sweet as a Candy Crush!
Navigating the app is intuitive and easy. It uses continuous scrolling to view all of the images. Many selections also offer additional views and angles that you can reach by swiping to the left.
They’ve done a nice job of designing options to help you look for specific styles. Using a well defined filtering system the app allows you to limit the collection by choosing Silhouette, Neckline, Price, Fabric, Gown Length, Train Length and Designers.
You can select any of those filters and use them in combination with additional filters in each category. For example there are 11 neckline options. So a princess silhouette with a modest neckline priced between $1500 and $3000 narrows the selections to 8 dresses. With a one-shoulder neckline the choices jump to 19. Or you could just scroll through all 6000 gowns. How soon is the wedding?
Over 150 designer collections are represented; Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera and Aire Barcelona among them.
To help you find dresses and retailers they included an extensive listing of bridal shops. The links come complete with maps, reviews and in some cases the collections that are featured in the shop. Here’s one showing A Little Something White Bridal Couture in Darien.
Whatever you think of The Knot and their barrage of emails policy – like an episode of Marketers Gone Wild – they occasionally have some pretty cool stuff and this app qualifies. You can choose to opt out of push notifications to help cut the clutter.
Fashion has always shown well on mobile devices. You’ll find links for downloading below. This is a free app and definitely worthy of a space on your phone. Happy shopping.
