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!

    WHERE TO STAY

    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

    Adding a hotel to your Travel page

    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.

    WHAT TO DO

    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.

    GETTING THERE

    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.

    READY TO GET STARTED?
