The top 3 wedding planning apps in Ghana. A Case Study.

“There’s a big difference between falling in love with someone and falling in love with someone and getting married. Usually, after you get married, you fall in love with the person even more.” – Dave Grohl

Weddings are, undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated events for most people when they think of getting married. It is so important and has gained such cultural and social significance that people start planning for the wedding day, at least, one year before the date of the wedding, some even start planning about 3 years ahead, in order to ensure that everything goes smoothly on their “big day”.

As with many aspects of life, technology is making the everyday processes and activities easier, faster, and better. Take communication. Years back, most people would need to write letters in order to communicate with loved ones abroad, or even in the same countries, but separated by distance. Today, we talk instantly and in real-time via mobile phones, laptop, etc using the power of SMS, email, and more.

The wedding industry has seen a degree of improvement with the adoption and digitization of technologies for planning and finding vendors. Today, we are going to review the top three apps for wedding planning in Ghana, and look at their pros and cons so that you can make an informed decision.

Wedding Planning Apps: Who are the leaders?

We conducted some surveys on couples planning weddings, to find out how they go about the planning process, and what they expect from
To make our analysis more justified, we decided to assess the effectiveness and trustworthiness of the services under review. We are going to evaluate:
  • Design. Under design, we would consider both the user interface (UI) and the User Experience. We would look at how easy it is to register, find vendors, and navigate around the app.
  • Usefulness. Every app is unique and even one and the same feature can have a few ways of realization. For example, most wedding planning apps come with blog articles. How relevant are the blog articles to users? How useful is the app for the purpose it was designed?
  • Vendors. Wedding Planning apps are essential because they mostly serve as wedding listing platforms for vendors. How easy is it for a vendor to sign up to the platform? How many vendors are on each platform? What are the tools that vendors can use to build their business
Let me introduce to you, the rating scale from 1 to 5, where 1 is ‘Not very satisfying’ and 5 is ‘Very satisfying’.
Ayefro Inc Mobile App by Ayefro Digital Solutions (Ayefro Inc)
The Ayefro Inc mobile app is a relatively new app amongst the apps to be reviewed today. It was launched on 1st May, 2018. The app is available on both Android and iOS, and it comes with a lot of features for both vendors and clients to use to interact and plan weddings and other events. What distinguishes the Ayefro Inc mobile app from the other apps is that clients are able to create events directly on the Ayefro Inc app and vendors can bid in a competitive process to provide the services which the clients require. This makes the client to get a lot of options to choose from, and simulates a real marketplace situation online. Both clients and vendors can also upload images to the Ayefro Inc mobile app, making it a very social app and highly interactive event planning platform.

 

Pros and Cons

  • Beautiful Interface

  • Ability to create events
  • over 500+ vendors in Ghana
  • Social media platform
  • Robust Feedback system
  • Powerful search engine
  • Available for Android and iOS

Wedding Hive by Wedding Hive

The Wedding Hive mobile app has been around longest, as compared to the other apps being discussed. It has a great UI, which suffers from a lot of apps, making the app slow and difficult to use. All pictures on the app look gorgeous. This could be because there are only a few vendors on the app. It could also be because the app seems to be aimed at certain premium vendors. Or, it could be because, the team at Wedding Hive, also provide Photography and Video services, therefore, they have high quality photos to use. This could also be a disadvantage because they would only recommend themselves to clients, to the detriment of other vendors.

 

Pros and Cons

  • Too many annoying third-party ads make using the app very difficult
  • Beautiful UI
  • Limited number of vendors
  • Social media platform with lots of followers

 

 

Weddors by Weddors
Weddors is relatively new. The weddors app is a web app. It has a very neat interface and is straightforward and easy to use. It is simply a listing of wedding vendors and vendors can apply to be listed on their own. Since it is new, it has very few vendors on the platform. It also has a  good search engine for finding vendors and relevant articles posted regularly to it’s blog.

 

Pros and Cons

  • Only available as a Web App
  • Easy to use
  • over 50 vendors
  • Powerful search engine

 

So which app should you choose as someone planning your wedding? The best wedding planning app in Ghana is the Ayefro Inc app. The best event planning app in Ghana is the Ayefro Inc app. The Ayefro Inc app is more than an event’s planning app. It is a social experience and comes with many value added services and regular networking events created for vendors to meet clients and do business, such as the Ayefro Inc Fair, WedTech Workshop and Ayefro Inc Awards.
