10 Apps You Need To Plan Your Wedding
Let's face it, some of the best wedding planning is done while standing in line, during your lunch break and when you're out and about running errands. That's why it's more important than ever to have a way to be productive on-the-go. Here, our favorite must-have apps for planning your wedding.
1. For Getting Organized…The Knot Wedding Planner App
Not to brag or anything (ok, maybe just a little bit), but this app is going to be your life saver while you're planning. Keep track of to-dos with your checklist, browse and save your favorite real wedding photos to show to your florist or cake baker, and find your venue and all the rest of your wedding pros right there in the app.

2. For Last Minute To-Dos…TaskRabbit
It connects with (background-checked) locals to help you with basically any task you might need — anything from making a pick-up, to organizing RSVPs, and even tying ribbons on programs (you know, if you accidentally go a little in over your head on the DIY projects). Just post a task you need help with and hire the person who bids the right hourly rate.
