I don’t know about you, but when I got married, I used a host of different products – e-mail, Google Docs, wedding website, save-the-date, welcome packet, (the invitation, of course) – to share information with our guests. Bottom line – there were too many channels of communication, and they were not always effective.
I’m trying to solve that problem by developing a web application that will improve the process of communicating information to wedding guests – and I need your help!
What are you using to share information (and collect info like RSVPs and addresses) with your guests?
What do you like about that product/those products?
What do you wish you could change about the way you’re sharing info with your guests?
Thanks for your insights!!

I wold just send paper invitations, people can send back paper postcard rsvp’s in the mail, and that’s it.
FH’s cousin has a wedding website, and it lists too much info, includng names of all guests (first and last), hometowns and if th ey are expected to attend.

@kerensa: Cool, thanks! Why did you decide against a wedding website?

I have a wedding website but I am still using save-the-dates (magnets) and mailed invitations because I like the tradition of sending those. Otherwise, all info can be found on my wedding website, such as where I’m registered, address for the ceremony and reception, music requests, etc.

@MapleMoose: I liked the traditional piece of sending out our invitations, too. What do you like about your wedding website? Anything you wish you could change?

@JSL82: Off the top of my head…
Things I like:
- I can add music to play in the background while people browse the site
- Add my own pictures
- Song requests
- Pre-made themes/colors
Things I wish I could change:
- Not show my wedding date on the opening screen, before the password is entered
- Less structured/rigid format. For example, ability to place my pictures and text in different areas of the page, rather than in one of three designated areas on the pre-designed template.
- Have my own domain name. (I realize I could have paid to have this but I wanted a free wedding website.)
