With so many useful apps now available to take advantage of, the wedding planning process has never been easier!

Here are a few that provide some services you’ll definitely need:

For Planning Without the Planner

WeddingHappy: There are all kinds of wedding apps out there making it difficult to find an all-rounder. Wedding Happy is that app. Think of this free app as your personal assistant. It’s preloaded with tasks to guide you through your to-dos and it’s super simple to get up and running. Just enter your anticipated wedding date it builds a customized to-do list for you to work through, with a dashboard overview available at all times. You don’t even need a network connection to use it. The handy ‘Export & Email’ feature lets you share your “event” with your fiancé, mother, or hands-on matron of honor. It also integrates with Facebook and Twitter.

Trello: Forget that massive notebook—organize your entire wedding on Trello’s virtual pin board. Line up each “card” in a column (which you can name for a category like Venue or Photography), and drag and drop as the task is completed or pushed back. You can attach photos (place-setting mock-ups) or documents (final contracts for review) to cards, then give them color-coded labels—to indicate things like “vendor paid” or “follow up later”—and set deadlines, which the auto-generated e-mail reminders will help you hit on time.

Zola: If you want to do wedding planning on the go then Zola, produced by one of the biggest online bridal sites, The Knot, is the answer. Articulate your wedding vision through their fun Style Quiz, get connected to just the right local vendors and manage all your guest experiences and wedding registries in one place. Best of all, our smart technology works seamlessly behind the scenes to create a personalized Wedding Day Timeline that serves as a minute-by-minute schedule for you, your guests and all your wedding vendors.

For Managing Your Wedding Budget

Pocketbook: Creating your wedding budget is one thing, but sticking to your wedding budget is a different story altogether! Tracking your wedding expenses is really important in order to keep your budget in check.

Pocketbook is an accounting app that syncs with your online banking, allowing you to easily see your expenses as they occur. The platform is customizable, so you can create your own categories purely to track your wedding-related purchases and payments.

The Pocketbook app can also help with saving and budgeting along the way. If you and your partner have planned to save a certain amount of money each week for your wedding or honeymoon, Pocketbook has several budgeting features to keep you on track.

BEST MISCELLANEOUS

Dance lessons, cooking classes, massages, concert tickets, sporting events—the list goes on and way on. You can even register for interior-design consultations and OpenTable gift cards.

Weddington Way: Need to rally your bridesmaids from coast to coast?
