The multitude of notepads and binders you purchased from Paperchase aren’t cutting the mustard and, quite frankly, you fancy a pack of biscuits and a slob in front of the TV.

Wedding Happy

iPhone, iPad

If you want a solid all-rounder, Wedding Happy is the ideal free app. Founded by a husband and wife team, the app allows coupes to input their wedding day, and tailor a multitude of to-do lists with each task having a specific date of completion. Luckily, the app implements some sort of tech magic that inputs a generic, but extremely thorough check list, which is fully customisable. The dashboard overview helps keep couples on the right track, showing what percentage of tasks are completed, last task completed, and the next task on the agenda. It can also be used to budget and store vendors, is there anything that this app cannot do?

The snazzy barcode scanner technology allows you to add items on-the-go, but you can also import gifts from any of the stores within the app. There is space to leave a note about colour preference or size, and you will receive a notification when somebody has purchased an item from your wish list!
