Technology is starting to catch up with everything, including weddings. Did you know that cloud-based wedding planning software is a thing that exists? That’s right, you can plan your wedding on the fly, from anywhere, at any time, and transfer that data between devices.
Cloud Weddings is a wedding planning site that allows you to plan your wedding on the go. You can build a website for your wedding, liaise with your wedding planner, send out guest lists, reminders, and helps you track your wedding budget.
If your venue is part of this service, you can connect to it and access all of the information that you’ll need – including menus and seating plans.
It’s about bloody time that such a tool existed. Everything else is online. You can plan your meals online, it only makes sense to be able to do the same for your wedding.
The best part: you can do this for free.
What are you able to do when you plan your wedding in the cloud?
The biggest segment is the ability to build and edit a website for your wedding. This can be really important – especially if your guests are as tech-savvy as you – by providing instant information updates that can help wedding guests figure out their end of things. You can add photos to this site, and use a variety of templates that fit your tastes or theme.
Using a cloud wedding planning software suite also allows you to track your budget. You can see exactly where your money is going and figure out what you need to do to stay on budget, or get back on track.
The actual wedding planner module is a big to-do list. You can add all the tasks that you need to keep track of, and schedule reminders so that you don’t forget to order the limo or make arrangements for flowers.
The other thing that you can do with this software is manage your guests and seating arrangements. You can set titles for people that need them, as well as assign tasks to those people, and if you have to make some seating switches all you have to do is drag and drop the entries. It’s fantastically easy.
When planning your wedding in the cloud, you don’t have to worry about losing all of your data: it’s saved online, and you can log in from anywhere. Naturally, you want to avoid logging in from a public computer (as some of them can be a tad dodgy, you don’t know what sort of things are being installed on those machines), but you can access your plans from your smartphone, your computer, your tablet – anywhere! You don’t worry about losing pieces of paper or notebooks, and you don’t have to worry about your computer deciding to crash and take all that information down with it.
There’s really no reason not to at least give this sort of software a spin. You’ll be glad you did, and it’ll save you so much trouble in the long run.
