The Wedding Planner Goes Online: Apps For The Perfect Wedding

Getting married? The best advice you may get is to plan ahead. The amount of time spent on planning a wedding, on average, is 120 hours. The average cost, 30,000. The average number of guests, 120. Then there’s the decision-making: who will pay for the wedding, the couple themselves, or their parents? How will the costs be divided? And the budgeting: how much to allow for venue hiring costs, food, clothes and make-up, entertainment, flowers, photography, and the costs of the ceremony itself?

But help is at hand, now that there are a whole range of apps to help you plan the perfect wedding, and a timeline for what-to-do and when. Here’s how to manage the countdown to your wedding and the apps that will help you:
