WeddingWire First to Offer Free Mobilized Wedding Websites
BETHESDA, Md., March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — WeddingWire.com, the nation’s leading wedding marketplace, is excited to announce the industry’s first free mobile wedding websites, providing engaged couples and their guests access to wedding information, from the palm of their hand. Wedding websites, one of WeddingWire’s most popular wedding planning tools, are a simple and free way to inform wedding guests of all the wedding details; with the newly-launched mobile wedding websites, details are now available to everyone while on-the-go!
Wedding websites are a great way to stay in contact with guests throughout the planning process; however, now empowered with mobile access to the event details, guests can arrive in town for the “big day” and quickly and easily confirm key details such as hotel and venue addresses, ceremony start times and special instructions.
Engaged couples maintain the ability to create free wedding websites online in three easy steps: choosing a design from among 120 designer themes, entering all of the exciting event details and customizing their site with applications for registry, travel and more. WeddingWire has taken the next step by automatically mobilizing the couples’ wedding website, which gives guests the ability to submit their RSVP and meal selections directly from their mobile devices and access the details upon arrival. Guests are also able to post comments and share photos with the couple and other guests, before, during and after the wedding, using a new Social Guest Book application. Engaged couples are able to update their wedding website online and their mobile site will be updated automatically, providing a seamless sync of information.
“Mobile technology has made a huge impact on the way engaged couples are planning their weddings,” says Sonny Ganguly, Chief Marketing Officer, WeddingWire. “As the first company in the industry to launch fully mobilized wedding websites, we’re proud to provide increased convenience to couples who are planning and guests who are attending weddings. Our planning tools continue to offer couples the easiest way to enjoy their wedding planning process and now they can do and share even more, from the palm of their hands.”
WeddingWire continues to be the industry leader in mobile technology for both engaged couples and wedding vendors. In September 2010, WeddingWire was the first in the wedding industry to launch a fully mobilized version of their site at m.weddingwire.com. The following fall, WeddingWire released the Go Mobile tool that allows wedding professionals to mobilize their own websites in seconds.
