Today I’m back with another post about how technology can help you in your life and wedding planning. I’m talking about some Wedding Productivity Hacks that you can use with your SmartPhone!

It’s easy to drown in all the details of your wedding, from the planning stages to the big day itself. These productivity hacks will help you stay on top of things with a super simple tool that has countless applications and possibilities! I’m talking about IFTTT!

IFTTT - put the internet to work for you

If you’re not already signed up for IFTTT, get to it! IFTTT stands for IF This Then That, and it’s an app / site that automates actions to make people’s lives MUCH easier, including brides and grooms deep in the throes of wedding planning.

You can use IFTTT to create “recipes” from a large number of connected apps and websites (they call them “channels”) to automate processes for you — saving you time and sanity. If time is money, IFTTT will basically save you money, too. 😉

Whether you’re looking to corral and save all your wedding photos, organize your wedding budget, or keep track of your RSVP list, IFTTT can be utilized to automatically take care of tedious tasks for you to free you up to focus on the important stuff.

A couple recipes that I personally love and use for the blog are:

ifttt instagram to twitter recipe

This is one I personally love. I don’t have a great view of outside from my apartment, so IFTTT lets me know when it’s raining so I don’t forget my umbrella! Genius!

IFTTT syncs with TONS of different channels including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google Drive, DropBox, Pinterest, Spotify and more. You can set up recipes to send you texts, emails, create spreadsheets, set up playlists, and so much more. The options are pretty much limitless and the amount of time it’ll save you is astounding.

Best of all, you can sync your channels and create recipes right from your smart phone with the IF app by IFTTT! So whether you’re using an Android or Apple device, you can create and save your favorite recipes and get to productivity hacking your life!
