Three tools for keeping
wedding guests informed
Weddings give couples an opportunity
to share the joy of joining
their lives together with a
host of friends and family members.
Guests liven up the party and help
make the celebration that much more
No matter how big or how small the
guest list, keeping guests informed of
what’s happening is a courtesy couples
Save-the-date announcements have
become an increasingly popular component
of wedding planning. Instead
of waiting on the wedding invitation,
which traditionally arrives one or two
months prior to the event, save-thedate
cards provide guests with an advanced
advertisement of the celebration
to come. According toShutterfl y,
it’s customary to send save-the-date
notes around six months before the
wedding. For a destination wedding,
which will require extra travel plans,
advanced notice can be helpful.
Couples are increasingly embracing
technology as they plan their weddings.
Brides magazine states that, during
the typical 15-month engagement period,
48 percent of couples will launch
a wedding website. A wedding website
is a versatile tool that can help answer
questions that guests may have. The
website can spell out specifi cs, including
dress code, whether children are invited,
the names of wedding party participants,
transportation providers, and even restaurants
near the hotel for a quick bite
between ceremony and reception. Wedding
websites also can be used as fun
ways to keep guests engaged.
Video conferencing apps
As the world continues to adapt in
the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic,
video conferencing applications like
Facetime, Zoom and Microsoft Teams
enable people involved in the planning
process to routinely “gather”
and go over details about the wedding,
helping to limit in-person meetings
as much as possible. These apps also
can prove invaluable when conferring
with wedding vendors.
