We’re always asking couples what the most important factor of their wedding day is and nine times out of 10, we get the same answer: guest experience. That’s right, brides and grooms obvi care that they’re getting married and taking the next big step in their relationship journey (#thankyouAlexisRose), but they also really want to make it worth it for their wedding guests, too. And when we say ‘worth it,’ we don’t just mean that the open bar was open for business - we mean that guests drank all the fun drinks, ate all the crave-worthiest food, danced to all the best music, they had a blast, basically, and they’ll be talking about their good time for a long time. Well, we chatted with the creators of SamSaidYes, an app that offers couples the most entertaining live sharing between all mobile phones at their wedding, and they gave us the perfect thing to track all that guest fun. If that (the fun) is up there on you and your partner’s priority list, then you’ll definitely need to check these guys out.
The Measure of an Amazing Time.
So, aside from checking in on all of your friends and fam post-wedding to see if they had fun or enlisting one of your bridal party members for pulse-checks on all your partygoers, it’s not like couples can send out ‘How rad was our wedding?’ surveys to get an accurate measure of their ‘would refer to a friend’ event likeability. But let’s just think about the things that point to a good time had by all: 1) lots of photos getting posted and shared 2) messages with an outpouring of ‘best day ever’ vibes in your guest book and 3) full stacks of cash in those gift envelopes? Kidding, guest presence = the best presents, right?!
For real, everyone knows that pics mean it [the wedding] happened, so why wouldn’t they also be an indicator that what happened was epic and historic, a truly hype-worthy day? That’s what SamSaidYes gets behind and we’re not too far behind them.
SamSaidYes lets you see your wedding through the eyes of your guests - every perfectly imperfect moment. You’ll never have to photo chase, ever (I can’t even explain how many times I’ve stalked my sister, friends, family members to text me photos of all the great snaps they captured when I couldn’t), and you can effortlessly download the most amazing memories once the wedding is over. So re-living the magic is ridiculously simple and encouraged, BTW.
All the perks above and beyond a basic photo aggregator
From your wedding dance to your tirelessly-prepared-for toasts (thanks Best Man and MOH), cake cutting to your creative sendoff, keeping an eye on all the high points of your wedding day is a pretty tall order. But it doesn’t have to be, not with SamSaidYes - the easy and highly-entertaining way for you to collect all those memories in high quality, without the extra hustle.
Anything that’s free has our attention, but the fact that this app is free (not to mention, can be done without registration) and unlimited (all of us, 100 percent, have those friends who can’t be limited to the amount of photos and videos they take in a given setting) makes it especially great for guests. And if you have any budget put aside for ‘extra’ fun, you can cash in on everything that comes with the FREE plan + a ton more a la carte features, all of which will range in price from $2-$10 (available in February!).
It’s inclusive AF.
As in, you’ll get perspectives from everyone who takes a photo or video on your day. All live, too, as they happen.
On your wedding day, you’re told to soak everything in and really concentrate on each other, but in reality, you end up being pulled in 50665 different directions. With SamSaidYes, you can get back to those ‘must haves’ and leave the documentation up to your ‘I Do’ crew (everyone celebrating you).

It’s album-resolution quality.
Up to 4X higher quality than what’s rendered on social media. Hashtags are awesome, but printing even the best of them for a photo album would still err on the blurry.
It’s the epitome of squad goals.
With the app, you can make the wedding even cooler to your crew. Break the ice between guests (especially those who are meeting for the first time) with a live social wall and challenges.
Getting started is crazy easy, too.
