So what’s it all about?
Simply put.. it’s a website tailored to helping you plan your wedding using Googles many free tools.
Still not sure? Let’s take a look..
Share your engagement story and wedding details with an easy to create website. Once you’ve chosen from the many custom designs you can jump in and start adding information. Why not share it with your fiance(e) so you can work on it together.
Use Picnik photo editing tools to create announcements, save-the-date cards and more. Choose one of Picnik’s exclusive designs and then drag-and-drop your photo into the template!! Voila!
Picnik and Google Sites have co-ordinating themes to tie it all together beautifully.
Planning with Google Docs
Keep track of all the details from invites, addresses, schedules and more. The upside of doing them with Google is that you can access them from your smartphone or computer wherever you are. Choose from the all-in-one planner or pick and choose what you need. Choices are: To-do list; Address Book; Guest List; Budget Planner; Seating Chart; Reception Menu; and Music List.
Picasa Web Album
It’s a great tool to organise all your photo’s and pictures of dress, floral arrangement, cakes, shoes and more during the planning stages. It can be your online photo album of your engagement and wedding photo’s. Use Picnik to add professional-quality effects to your photos.
Google teamed up with New York wedding planner Michelle Rago to create these efficient and beautiful tools. In an interview with Glamour Magazine (US) Michelle Rago said, “Since destination weddings are my specialty, we had a great time designing templates to appeal to just about any conceivable inspiration. You’ll have City Lights and Sea & Sun. You’ll have preppy, edgy, country, flowery. There are so many beautiful choices, the creative is always such an exciting part of the process.”
And there are so many choices. My favourite are Classic and Metropolitan. What are yours?
