Antique white, lavender and vintage rose — all colors that couldn't be more bridal if they tried! And funny enough, these are the latest watch bands from Apple, newly launched in conjunction with the beautiful (and refreshingly feminine) yellow and rose gold aluminum watch faces.
Not only are they seriously pretty, they're super handy too, especially when it comes to preparing for your big day! Here, the best way to plan your wedding with an apple watch.

1. When trying on dresses!
Take selfies using the remote viewfinder and shutter. Just prop the phone up at the wedding dress store and voila! You have a snapshot of you and your potential wedding dress.

2. Use the Apple Watch activity and workout apps to lose weight for the big day!
Sharing your workouts with your mom and bridesmaids will help you stay motivated and encourage each other leading up to the big day.

3. Send a Digital Touch
Tap (read: wake up) your fiancé when he falls asleep in the store picking registry items like china or is up late with you balancing budgets.

4. Set up all wedding vendors as VIPs
You can do this in your inbox so you get tapped with a notification when they send you an email.

5. Change your watch faces
While wedding planning, use the "Modular" watch face to see next appointment (florals, venue visit, etc). After the wedding use the "photo album" face to relive the best moments from the best day of your life!

6. Make calls from wrist when you need a second opinion
This is particularly useful when your hands are full with registry items, floral samples, shopping bags ... you get the idea.

7. Set up a photo album of your venue
So you can show all of your vendors the setting, color theme etc (show to florists, rentals, etc)

8. Dark sky app
Yo can "Time travel" with your watch to see the weather forecast if you're concerned about your outdoor wedding.

9. Maps on your wrist
This offers transit support so you can quickly get to your next appointment during those extra busy days.

10. Send you heart beat to fiancé during stressful moments
To remind him that you love him, of course!
