5 Must-Have Wedding Smartphone Apps for the Bride-To-Be

Like most things in our society, planning a wedding has become a digital affair. From the moment you blast out your giddy post-engagement selfie to your Throwback Thursday honeymoon picture 5-years from now, everything is planned, documented and shared via computer, tablet and- most importantly- cell phone. Taking advantage of wedding-related apps makes the planning process much more simple and streamlined and keeps every detail and decision in the palm of your hand. But with hundreds of apps on the market, where should a bride even start? 

To avoid creating confusion, we recommend having one app for each of these categories; Digital Wedding Planning, Gift Registry, Shopping, Photography and a Countdown. This will help you stay motivated and organized without adding clutter to your [already-hectic] life or making you feel like a slave to your smartphone. Take a look at which 5 Wedding Apps we think are the best-of-the-best in each category and are a necessity for every bride-to-be.
