Wedding Shower Planning Tools

How To Plan a Wedding Shower With Online Tools

Planning parties has become infinitely easier with the advent of the Internet, and if you're already familiar with the tools at your disposal, then planning your wedding shower or engagement party will be that much simpler.

Whether you're the one getting married or a friend of the bride and groom throwing the event, trust me — online planning is where it's at. Check out some of these online tools that will help you design an awesome fête.

  • Online party planning site PunchBowl can help you plan your party, with ideas and advice for every step of the way.
  • Since the wedding shower is not quite the big, formal event a wedding is, email invitations are perfectly acceptable (not to mention eco and ultra-convenient). One of my favorites, of course, is eVite. They have a few pages of wedding-themed invitations that would be great for a shower, and you can always design your own.

See the rest of my tips after the break.

  • Don't let anyone get lost! If you're using eVite, Google Maps is already integrated, but if not, you can email the map or grab and embed the code in your invitation.
  • After the party, remind people how much fun they had and upload your photos to one designated photo site, like Flickr, Picasa, or Shutterfly, so you can keep all the memories in one place to share for years to come.

Another tip: set up a separate wedding related Google account...think about it: Google Sites to organize information and host invitation, Google Groups to organize wedding party and invitees, Picasa to embed photos on Google Site, Google Voice as a separate phone number for RSVPs instead of mail return RSVPs, aforementioned Google Maps to ensure everyone has correct directions (though I'm still partial to Yahoo! Maps sometimes more accurate).

I hear you on that Wedding Planning. We offered up streaming to those who we really wanted there but couldn't make it, and they told us after that they appreciated being included like that even though they were hundreds of miles away. It was a nice touch for the guests.

after checking out all of these online tools i'm thinking what's the point in having an actual ceremony when you can choose any location and stream the wedding online? think about it: you, the groom, the minister and a witness or two and you've got the perfect wedding. and it's almost guaranteed to start on time! haha.
