The 5 Best Wedding Dress Apps of 2022

Whether you need a frock that fits within your budget or you have your heart set on a gown that’s fresh off the runway, there are wedding dress apps that will help you discover the one for you as quickly as tapping your device's screen.

While dress shopping might seem like an especially overwhelming task on your to-do list, apps can simplify the process. And, there are several offerings to bring countless, gorgeous gowns right to your fingertips.

Toting features like the ability to save your faves and ask your bridesmaids for their input (because we know you want your girls’ stamp of approval), these resources are indispensable for helping you sort through a sea of silhouettes, trains, and necklines.

Make room on your home screen right beside that wedding countdown feature, download the top wedding dress apps, and start swiping your way to a dream dress.

Best Overall: WeddingWire

The 5 Best Wedding Dress Apps of 2022 (2)

In general, the WeddingWire app is basically the next best thing to having an IRL wedding planner on speed dial. You can keep track of your wedding checklist and budget, read vendor reviews, organize your guest list, and more.

But we’re talking about wedding dresses here, and we’re glad to report that the WeddingWire app is the MVP in that department. Once you sign up, enter the app’s wedding dress gallery to begin your search. You can browse by designer, price point, style, silhouette, and more. (Are you looking for something formal for a ballroom wedding, or a frock more suited to a sandy beach setting?)

The real game-changer, though, is the short survey the app provides to help you find "the one." You’ll be presented with a slew of stunning dresses. Simply "like" five of the gorgeous gowns it shows you, and with that, you will have instantly narrowed down your search.

The app can determine whether your perfect dress will feature an A-line silhouette or a V-neckline. Then, it’ll curate a dress gallery full of frocks that fit the bill. Suddenly, wedding dress shopping seems a lot less overwhelming.

Best Budget: Still White

The 5 Best Wedding Dress Apps of 2022 (4)


Not every bride has an unlimited wedding dress budget to play with—and that’s where Still White comes in.

With this app, you can browse thousands of second-hand wedding dresses being offered at heavily discounted prices. Since the outfits come from brides who have already walked down the aisle and now wish to pass on their gowns to another, it's both a sustainable and budget-friendly way to shop for your dream dress.

You can filter frocks by location, condition, size, designer, and features, such as silhouette, neckline, and more. Then, sign up for notifications to ping you when new dresses that fit your filters are added to the marketplace.

You can also save a selection of gowns and invite friends and bridesmaids to give their input, chat instantly with sellers to ask questions about the frock you’ve been eyeing, and pay securely via PayPal Buyer Protection directly through the app.

And, once you say "I do" and finish writing those Thank You notes, you can return to the app to list your now twice-beloved dress to score some honeymoon spending money.

Best Instant Buy: Zola

The 5 Best Wedding Dress Apps of 2022 (6)

You’re probably already familiar with Zola as one of the top places to set up your wedding registry and design a wedding website. But did you know that its app is also a dreamy destination for at-home wedding dress shopping?

With the launch of Zola’s Wedding Shop, you can take a break from setting up your honeymoon fund or adding Le Creuset cookware to your registry to score everything from wedding decor to bridesmaid gifts. But, most importantly, you can find your ideal wedding dress.

Once in the app, enter the Wedding Shop and browse beautiful bridal gowns from labels like Kleinfeld and Lace & Liberty. The best part? You can buy them instantly. That’s right, you can cross “find wedding dress” off of your to-do list with just a few swipes and taps.

Zola also offers little white dresses, jewelry, shoes, headpieces, and bridal lingerie, so you can get all of your outfits for the wedding sorted all at once.

Best for Feedback: Azazie

The 5 Best Wedding Dress Apps of 2022 (8)

Consider this app the Tinder of wedding dresses. Browse all of the budget-friendly wedding dresses Azazie has to offer and save your favorites to your own personal showroom.

Then, you can share it with your bridal party, mom, or fiancé, who can offer their thoughts on each gown by tapping "like" or "pass" buttons. After you narrow down your favorites, you can bring the bridal boutique to you by selecting one to three dresses to try on at home. (We recommend hosting a Zoom fashion show with your bridesmaids). Once you find "the one," simply send back the samples and order your gown.

Even if you don’t plan to purchase your dress on Azazie, it’s a great way to get an idea of what kind of gown your friends think you’ll rock. And, after you have your bridal ensemble sorted, you can create a bridesmaid dress showroom where your BFFs can add or choose their favorites.

That way, you can be sure to choose bridesmaid dresses that everyone loves and earn the title of "Best Bride Ever."

Best Inspiration: Pinterest

The 5 Best Wedding Dress Apps of 2022 (10)

This one you already know and love (or at least we hope so), but it's still worthy ofa shout-out when it comes to best wedding dress apps.

With Pinterest, it couldn’t be easier to scroll and save images you love to inspiration boards curated to your personal style or wedding theme. If you aren’t sure where to start when it comes to wedding dress shopping, it’s a great place to begin.

Do a simple wedding dress search and start to narrow it down by features such as silhouette, neckline, and sleeve length, so you can begin to get an idea of what exactly it is you’re looking for when you finally hit the boutique.

Be sure to save your faves by creating a dedicated wedding dress inspiration board. You can set your board to private to keep your potentialgown a surprise, or you can share it with your bridesmaids to get their expert opinions.
