You are engaged… YAY, we are so happy for you!!!! So now it is time to buckle down and start planning. The one thing that is so tough about planning your wedding is that life doesn’t stop to give you extra time to plan…. you still have to work, pay bills, go to school and everything else that life brings your way. We found this article on The Knot about the best wedding planning apps and it inspired us to tell you about a few of our favorites.

Here are our recommendations for the 9 best wedding planning apps!

Search for photographers in your location, save your favorites, and you can even browse through our blog to find so much great inspiration like real weddings, engagements, wedding planning tips, DIY ideas and more!

WedPics is a free and easy way to collect all of your wedding photos and videos that were taken by your guests and have them in one private location. Pretty much each and every one of your guests will take at least one photo during your special day, and it would be so great to have a copy of it, but after the wedding, it is hard to track down all of those photos. Think of WedPics as an alternative to a disposable camera.
Brides Wedding Genius
This is another one of our best wedding planning apps. With this Brides app, you can browse hundreds of wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, jewelry and even honeymoon destinations. Their Digital Wedding Binder upgrade even will keep everything organized for you and offers expert wedding advice.

Vera Wang on Weddings
What is not to love about Vera Wang? With this app, you can create inspiration boards, you can stay on top of your wedding to-do list, organize your wedding guest list, keep track of all your wedding vendor contact information and meeting notes, and more!

This app can be very helpful with any last minute to-do’s you need to get done right before the wedding. Do you have something that needs to be delivered to the reception, or do you need someone crafty who can finish up making the last 100 wedding favors that you thought you would be able to get done on your own? Use TaskRabbit to connect with locals that can help you out with any task you may need… and don’t worry, each one has already had a background check! All you do is post the task you need done and people bid for it, and you choose based on the rate you want to pay.
Are you planning to create many of the wedding decor, gifts, invitations and more yourself? This app is perfect for all those DIY ideas… there are hundreds of tutorials for just about everything wedding-related that you may want to try out for your wedding day. You can even create your own tutorial if you want so you can share your expertise with other brides-to-be.

My Fitness Pal
One thing that almost every bride tries to do when leading up to their wedding day is to lose a few pounds. Some even just try to maintain their weight so they can be sure that they fit into their dress when the big day arrives. My Fitness Pal is a free app that allows you to set goals and track your progress as you go. You can log you calories and exercise so you are able to see how you are progressing.
Is it the morning of the wedding, you had already had your hair, makeup and nails done and something got messed up? Or maybe your best friend who was supposed to do your makeup backed out the day of. (We sure hope that doesn’t happen, but you never know!) You may even wake up the morning of your wedding and really feel like de-stressing with a yoga instructor last minute. PRIV will send professionals to your door in under and hour 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. From makeup, nails, hair or even personal trainers, you can find them here! So, even if you do not think you will need it, PRIV may be a great app to have on hand just in case!
