Whether you're looking for a wedding website, paperless save-the-dates, a way to collect RSVPs, and managing that guest list, we've found an app that helps you with ALL OF THAT. It's totally turn-key so you don't have to have any technical or design skills, either. Joy will create a central zone to manage all of your wedsite needs. How so? Here's the low-down on Joy, this (spoiler: free!) tool… An easy-to-use app The app (or their site, of course!) allows you to update your wedding website as often as you like. You can also invite your partner, your mom, your wedding planner, etc. to be admins on the site and make changes. It can be as collaborative as you want it to be. There's also an included wedding schedule in the Joy app to keep you on track. Loads of design options Match your favorite colors, fonts, styles, photos of you(!), and more to customize it to your own look and theme. And of course, you can highlight your wedding party, how you met, registry information, and all of the travel and schedule information your guests will want. And check this: you can actually have printed invitations and paperie created to match certain themes! A global guest list with RSVPs & scheduling This is my favorite part. I love a good guest list management tool. Joy allows you to invite from the site, collect digital RSVPs, and send messages (you know, to nag them about that RSVP!). RSVP information is updated live in your guest list and exportable as a spreadsheet to share and get organized. Photo collection, social media engagement, & spreadsheet importing This is where things get super engaged. Guests can take and upload photos to your private Moments timeline, comment, and interact with the photos. They can also create a guest profile which allows them to interact with other guests. Plus, you can decide whether your guests can share photos from your timeline on Facebook or Instagram. Always a bonus! You can even hook up your Moments timeline to a projector to show it as a live slideshow at the event to display the photos and messages people share in real-time. Hell yes! There's nothing guests like more than seeing themselves pop up in a slideshow. How much does all of this awesomeness cost? You'd think with all these fun features that you'd be out an arm and a leg for a tool like this, right? Let me clear this up: Joy is FREE to use. As in, all of their features are free. You can see how they do it, and get all your questions answered here. Ready to start making the most useful wedding website ever? Get started right NAO over at Joy.
