Wedding planning? There's an app for that. These six are brilliant

There really is an app for everything - even planning what is to be one of the happiest/stressful days of your life: your wedding. And in case you're not partial to hiring a physical wedding planner but still want something to ease the hysteria - because planning the entire day solo is generally thought to be a unique form of hell - all you need do is whip out your smartphone and start scrolling. We've compiled a list a selection of great apps to make your planning as pain-free as possible.

Wedding Party is the best place to capture, organise and share every moment of your wedding journey - guests can upload their photos, so you have an album from all angles.


The countdown and mild panic all start with a checklist. Where do I even start?' said all brides-to-be once the I'm-engaged euphoria wore off. WeddingHappy is ideal if you have absolutely no idea where to begin. Just put in your anticipated wedding date, and the app?will design a schedule complete with a checklist and suggested due dates. It also includes a number of other helpful features such as payment tracking (helpful) and a spending summary (sweat-inducing)



This Irish beauty app means you can book all your prep and prime appointments in one place. A few clicks and you can book a variety of services including hair, makeup, nails, spray tan, waxing and massage services (a must). Available in Cork, Limerick, Galway, Dublin, and the surrounding Dublin border areas (North Wicklow, East Kildare & South East Meath), you can book up to 30 days in advance or on the day - if you get stuck - in as little as two hours before your desired appointment.


What's worse than trying to whittle down the invite list? The seating plan. It's a potential minefield - remember your mother's uncle had a falling out with Mike so Mike has to be kept well out of sight etc  - but TopTablePlanner, which can be used on PC, Mac, tablet and smartphone, can be used to delegate and hopefully, save a few rows along the way. You add in your table type, the number of seats and the names of your guests and you can simply move them around until you're happy with their position.



Some of the best photos are the ones that aren't on the shot list. Customise a hashtag and tell your friends to add it to their pics when they upload to Instagram.
