With so many details to keep track of and sort, planning weddings can get stressful quickly. And though there are multiple website platforms designed to help you map out your dream wedding, you are much more likely to have your smart phone or tablet with you during wedding appointments, bridal showers and shopping trips. This is where apps come in handy.

With at least two more months left of wedding madness, we’ve compiled a list of wedding apps created by female founders.
