6 Best Wedding Planning Tools & Apps

Google Docs & Evernote

You can’t really plan a wedding without some form of schedule or spreadsheet. Sorry!

If you haven't already chosen a tool, or app to help you create wedding planning spreadsheets, we would recommend Google Docs. One of the simplest online tools that'll allow you to keep track of everything in real-time, and share with your planning team. From the budget, to timings and contracts, right through to the all important guest list.

As the perfect complement to Google Docs, we'd suggest Evernote, an app that helps you to collect and share inspirational ideas, photos, links, and articles all in one place.

The Wedding Bible

This is less of a tool, and more of a wedding planning resource. The Wedding Bible is a critically acclaimed go-to reference book for anyone planning a wedding. Written by Sarah Haywood, one of the world’s leading wedding and party planners, this ultimate guide is packed full of advice, top tips, checklists, planning solutions and inspirational imagery from real weddings.
