Although Google have been offering these productivity tools via their Google Documents service for a while they have now created a dedicated site Google Weddings with everything you need to get you organised. They have also teamed up with celebrity wedding planner Michelle Rago to offer some tips and advice to help you along the way.
A Free Wedding Website
There have been a few companies offering wedding websites to couples but Google are giving everyone the opportunity to create their own personalised site for free.
Choose from a selection of 12 wedding themed site templates so you can announce your plans to the world, upload photos and keep all your wedding details, like the date, directions to the church and all the arrangements. Just send your guests a link to your site and they can keep up to date with everything that’s going on.
Create Cards and Invites to Match Your Website Theme
Whichever web theme you choose you can keep all the colours coordinated by using the same theme to create save the date cards, invites and announcements . Drag and drop photos from your PC to the stationery templates – edit the wording and print them out at home (or at work, if you ask nicely).
Free Spreadsheet Templates and Wedding Planning Tools
Keep track of the finances, managing the guest list, planning your music and managing the seating plan are all a lot simpler with this free suite of spreadsheets and planning documents. Update and store them on-line or download to your pc as a document to use as you wish.
Use Google’s Picasa Wedding Albums to store, organise and share all those wedding day photo’s so they are safe and secure. And if you have the guests photo’s too you can use the Picasa editing tools to enhance and touch up so they look their absolute best.
