Let’s face it, planning a wedding is hard. For most couples, it is the biggest and most complicated event they have ever planned! The good news? There are some great modern solutions to ease the planning process and help you tackle your to-do list, even on the go! From budgeting to seating arrangements and travel plans to bridesmaids’ dresses, here are a few of my favorite wed-tech tools:

Wedding Party Woes

Dressing the wedding party is a tricky job. Everyone has their own opinions and criteria. For the ladies, Vow to be Chic is a seriously great option. Think Rent the Runway for bridesmaids dresses. If you’d prefer to buy instead of rent, give Weddington Way a try. Both services offer easy online collaboration (hello virtual dressing rooms!) with your girls so you can shop together without hopping on a plane!

For the fellas, The Black Tux offers high quality, well-fitted tux and suit rentals – all done online. Another easy fix for coordinating fashion with folks flung all over the world.

Time for a girls weekend? The Bach is your one-stop-shop for planning bachelorette parties and other group celebrations! Pick a location, get recommendations and party inspiration, read reviews, build an itinerary track RSVP’s and more. Save your inbox and your sanity.

The Dreaded Seating Chart

I am still haunted by the memories of the ever-changing reception seating chart. All Seated’s free collaboration tool will save you from the dreaded sticky notes. They’ve even got 3D floor plans for thousands of venues so you can see what your floor plan will look like!

Social Media Mayhem

While most couples urge guests to put their phones away for an unplugged ceremony, all bets are off for the rest of the wedding-related celebrations. Helloooo afterparty! Using a carefully crafted and well-communicated wedding hashtag is one way to collect all guest snaps, but WedPics is another easy solution with a bunch of handy bonus features. You’ll have a blast looking through all the candid shots on the way to your honeymoon destination!

If you are a social media maven looking for full service treatment, or really want your big day to be seen by millions, contact Maid of Social ASAP. You can have a dedicated social media strategist to help with custom hashtags and Snapchat filters, secure editorial features for your wedding and coordinate with both brands and vendors to make sure your Pinterest-worthy wedding is #trending.
