Wedding planning can be tough, and can take some serious organizational skills (and patience). You're planning checklists, guest lists, and timelines, while meeting vendors, picking decor, and trying to find a way to keep everything in on place. It can be overwhelming if you don't have a system for the madness, so here are 3 apps that can benefit your wedding planning in the best ways.
Google Drive is THE best place to store everything you need. You can add all of your documents here - vendor contracts, timelines, notes and details, spreadsheets (even for your budget), and more. It keeps everything together, is super easy to use, and, since it's cloud-based, you can easily access your planning information from anywhere.
Specifically, Facebook groups. There are Facebook groups for just about everything you can imagine. Want vendor recommendations in your area? There's a group for that. Want to connect with other engaged couples for inspiration, ideas, and advice? There's a group for that. Want to buy gently used wedding decor to try to save money? There's a group for that too. Just by being on Facebook, you have a wide range of planning tools at your disposal.
Think of it as mobile video planning. Zoom is a free service, that you can easily access from your computer or phone. It's a video conferencing program that even allows you to share notes, links, and even share your screen. It's a great tool for having a quick chat with your whole bridal party or meeting with a vendor. It's even more helpful if you're on the road a lot and don't have a lot of time for meetings, or if you're planning a destination wedding.
