We don’t need to tell you that wedding planning can feel
overwhelming. You have to find a bridesmaid dress to flatter five totally
different figures, choose the perfect filling for the cake and decide where to
seat your fiancée’s great aunt Gladys, all while staying right on budget. These
apps for your smart phone, as suggested by Verizon Wireless, will help you do it all without breaking a sweat. 


  • Appy
    Couple
    helps you create an interactive website for
    your wedding guests, including your "How We Met" story, favorite photos, bios
    of the wedding party, maps, directions and even a weather forecast. Guests can
    share photos and leave comments too. We love the wide range of elegant themes
    available to keep your wedding website stylish.
    One time set-up fee of $28 at
    appycouple.com.
  • WedPics turns
    your guests into your personal paparazzi! They can instantly upload their smart
    phone and digital photos from your wedding day into an interactive virtual album.
    Now you’ve got all those snapshots in one place, including the crazy moves your
    cousin busted out on the dance floor when the professional photographer was
    already long gone. Free at wedpics.com
  • Wedding
    Scan
    lets you add any item from any shop to your wedding
    registry. Simply scan the barcode with your iPhone, and guests can easily see
    the price, description and where to find it. No barcodes at your favorite
    antique shop? No problem, just snap a photo and add a description. Old-fashioned
    one-size-fits-all registries are officially a thing of the past. Available on iPhone for $2.99 at
    weddingscan.com.
  • SeatingPlanner+
    transforms the nightmare of seating charts into a dream by importing contacts
    from your phone, email and Facebook account. You can create multiple
    arrangements until you come up with the perfect mix at each table, then
    download the final product as a PDF or text document to share with your
    planner, caterer and curious mother in-law. Available on iPhone for $4.99 at
    gobeelabs.com.
