Capsule

This app is the absolute easiest way to collect every photo taken by guests throughout the wedding day/weekend. You purchase a custom code for $20, and guests enter the code in the app to add their pictures to one growing photostream.

Paperless Post

An untraditional approach to big day invitations with designs from the chicest of the chic (including Jonathan Adler, Kelly Wearstler, and Jessica Hische to name a few) await on this app. Yep, we’re talking digital invites here, but once you discover that they're as beautiful as their paper counterparts, send notifications the second a guest RSVPs, offer gentle RSVP reminders and are so nice to Mother Earth, you’ll be a convert.

Google+ Hangouts

This app is essential when everyone in the bridal party lives in different cities. Since you sign in with a Google account, it’s the easiest way for a group of up to 10 to video chat about bachelorette plans or whatever you all need to catch up on. Plus, the silly glasses and hats Google lets you “wear” while chatting take the hijinks to a whole new level. Screenshots might be necessary.

The Knot Wedding Dress Look Book App

This app offers a head start on the fitting room. Rather than get overwhelmed with options at the shop, first use the app to narrow things down with filters by silhouette, neckline, price, fabric, train length and designer. Seriously, no dress is forgotten here. When you find the one, the app locates the nearest bridal salon with the dress on hand.

Evernote

It's a digital accordion folder for all the technical nitty-gritty that goes with wedding planning. Store vendor contracts, tablescape inspiration photos, and to-do lists in the app. It will then sync to wherever else you access Evernote, like a browser or desktop extension, so that the details are always at your fingertips.

Postable

This is a go-to app for addressing those save the dates and shower invites. Postable is the easiest way to collect this vital information from everyone on the guest list. It does all the hard work for you by creating an address book guests easily and securely fill in before you then export the data to Gmail, Outlook or Excel.
