I’m certainly not a techie but I do like trying lots of new smart phone apps on a regular basis. I’m always looking for something that will make me look and feel super organized. Something that tells the whole world that I have everything under control.
Talking about organization! When it comes to planning a wedding, organization is your mantra word. Having a perfect wedding often comes down to good planning and organization. To get you on your merry way, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorites apps.

If you’re a modern, tech savvy bridal couple then Appy Couple is your new best friend.

There is also a great privacy function that allows the bride and bridegroom to select certain guests, like members of the bridal party, to receive private messages. So, c’mon if you’re [h]appy and you know it clap your hands!
Sometimes some of the best and outrageously funny pictures we have are those taken by our loved ones. Perhaps it’s because they know us so well that they’re able to capture our personalities in just one snap. This is why we love Wedding Snap. With Wedding Snap your guests can simply snap a photograph using the app and the image will be instantly uploaded to your online wedding album.
This is one of our all time favorites. It’s perfect to use when planning the décor elements of your wedding. We did a feature on it a few weeks ago. If you missed it, you can check it out here.
Tablerrr makes creating seating arrangements easy. What we love about Tablerrr is their special smart seating function. You can use the function to sketch the relations between guests in a mind map style editor. When you´re done planning you can use Tablerrr to print out seating charts and table cards with different fonts and colours.
