C’mon Get Appy: Four Smart Phone Apps to Make Wedding Planning a Snap

Grab your phone and get planning.

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.
