Introducing Travel for Joy: Share hotels, recommendations, and more with your guests

It’s the new year! And that means new features. To kick off 2016 right, we are super excited to announce one of our most demanded features — Travel for Joy!

Whether you’re having out of town guests or you’re planning a destination wedding, we know it can get tedious getting asked details on where to stay or what to do by all your excited guests.

Joy already helps you keep all your wedding details in one place and share your schedule, registry, guest list, and photos with guests in one go. See how Joy can make your wedding easier and more beautiful by watching this short video

Here’s what else you can do with Joy now!


Reserved a block of rooms for your guests? Add multiple hotels, group discount codes, driving directions as well as special instructions for accommodation to your Travel page and make it easy for your guests to know how to reserve rooms.

Add A Hotel

Let your guests know that you rented that giant beach house for them or recommend some cool AirBnBs by adding as many “Rental Home” cards as you need.

Edit a Travel Card

Editing is easy and updates instantaneous on both your app and website.


For a special touch, leave your guests a list of fun sights or things to do while in town. They’ll thank you. If you’re outdoorsy, why not add “Beautiful hikes in the area”? If you and your boo are foodies, put together a “Best restaurants in the city” list. You can even share lists like “Our favorite date spots” or “Our first 10 dates.”

Add notes to preemptively answer all those questions guests love to ask, like “Dress code”, “Flying in”, or “Getting around”. Or remind your guests to bring umbrellas or bathing suits with a “Don’t forget” list.

Share lists of things to do and notes with your guests on your Joy website.

Share recommendations and notes with your guests on your Joy website.


If you have planned complimentary shuttles or arranged for discount codes at certain rental car companies, make it painless for your guests to be in the know. You can add pick up and drop off time details for your shuttles, which your guests can set reminders for.

Guests can easily access travel details on your app and add reminders.


If you already have a Joy wedding, open your wedding editor at, click on ‘Add More Pages’ to find ‘Travel & Lodging’. Once you’ve added ‘Travel and Lodging’, you’ll be able to add all your travel details! If you haven’t created a Joy wedding yet, you can make your own Joy website and app at in just 2 mins! (And yes, it’s free.)

Don’t worry, you can add as many travel cards as you want (as in as many hotels, rental homes, lists, and notes as you want) and all your information will stay organized. And take a peek at the preview on the right, to get an idea of how everything will look in your app.


I hope you all have fun trying it out and as always, we’re excited to hear what our savvy brides and their guests think. Tell us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or in the comment section below!

Warm wishes for a joyful 2016!
