We live in a time where smartphones rule. While there are obvious downsides to constant contact (i.e. your friend who live-tweets brunch) there are some definite perks. You can now essentially plan your entire wedding on your trusty smartphone or tablet! There are apps that keep track of your budget, help you find nearby vendors, and even pick out a dress. We’ve featured our three favorite wedding apps that will make your big day a breeze.

Boring wedding websites are a thing of the past! Connect with your guests via your own personalized wedding app! Appy Couple lets you create a mobile wedding site (that can still be viewed on a desktop) that contains all of your vital information, but with a few perks. Use the app to send notifications and updates directly to your guests, receive RSVPs, and manage guest lists. Let your guests request their favorite songs directly to the DJ through the instant messaging feature. There are also a few extra features like a “champagne toast” and puzzle game to amp up the fun!
If you haven’t heard of a Zola registry yet, you are truly missing out! Zola allows you to put all of your registry items, from anywhere, into one place. The service curates a collection of beautiful home items for you to peruse, so finding gift ideas is a piece of cake. There are also options for group gifting for those big-ticket items (I’m looking at you Vitamix) so you don’t have to depend on one deep-pocketed benefactor. You can also register for honeymoon funds on the same site, so you don’t have to send your guests all over the internet. The best feature of this app is the barcode scanner. If you’re out shopping and find a must-have tea towel just scan the barcode and Zola will add it to your registry!

Having your guests Instagram pictures from your big day is the new normal. Instead of searching through hashtags and downloading countless photos, have it all in one place with Capsule. Capsule allows you to invite your guests to join an album group and then it syncs with Instagram to collect every single picture. From there, the album can be made into a physical book at the click of a button and it’s then shipped right to your door!
