Planning a wedding can be stressful. Luckily, in today’s world of marketplaces, online shopping and digital communication, much of it can be done online. Not only can this save a great deal of time and energy, it can be a fun way to spread the word and get people involved in every aspect of your journey.
One of the best ways to get the word out that you are in the process of planning your wedding is to create a wedding website. You can have a simple announcement webpage that gives general information, dates and times, or go all out and create an interactive site with blogs, photo updates, announcements and communication portals so that your friends and family can weigh in. A site builder like Weebly is inexpensive and can give you a variety of options when looking for help in building the perfect site.

One of the biggest sources of stress when sitting down to plan your wedding can come from realizing all of the shopping and organization required. Dresses and tuxedos, flowers, cakes and dinners, gifts, invitations, photographers… all of these things and more need to be researched, chosen and planned in various levels of detail. Websites like like The Knot and Brides.com can provide you with one centralized place to find all of the things you need for organizing your wedding. They can even help you set up registries for gifts.
Speaking of gifts, it is always a great idea to register for gifts. Many different websites exist that help you with that. You will find that a lot of big online retailers also provide a similar service that does the same too. For some, you need a big major set of gifts. Other people are just happy with basics of life, such as dishware and linen. Some think it is a great idea to use this time as an opportunity to get some gadgets and gizmos. Either way, there is inspiration for everyone on the internet. Visit this link for some handy ideas.
When planning your wedding there are two big destinations you need to focus on. Where to have the wedding and where to spend your honeymoon. Have the wedding where YOU and your partner want to have the wedding. Remember, this is your special day and you want it to be perfect for the two of you. That said, be sure to take your guests into account. A Hawaii wedding might be beautiful, but the 250 people you want to be there might not all be able to attend. If you do want to have a quiet destination wedding, consider having two ceremonies, one small and exclusive and one for a large group that is less expensive and more accessible. As for your honeymoon, explore the option of an all-inclusive resort. Remember, this is more than just a vacation, it’s a celebration of your new life together.
Sending your guests, friends and family a few of apps for their phones can be a great way to keep them involved and help make it an amazing event. Here are just a couple that you might enjoy:
- Tie the Knot – This fun app actually lets you design your own app to send to your guests to keep them informed of the details of your wedding. It also adds a countdown timer to the special day and keeps the timer going after.
- Wedding Party – This is an all in one photo app that can replace having cameras at the reception for your guests. People can take photos with their phone, organise them, create slideshows and even leave notes for the happy couple.
Whatever you do and whatever resources you use, make sure you are taking advantage of all that this digital age has to offer to help make the planning of your special day as fun and stress-free as possible.
