If you’re reading this blog post, you’re probably involved in an upcoming wedding. Whether you’re a bride, groom, bridesmaid, groomsman, mother of the bride, father of the groom, wedding photographer, DJ or anything else – even just an enthusiastic guest – you’re probably trying to figure out how to make this next wedding stress free and full of love, laughter and fun.
May we suggest you infuse a little Joy into your wedding?
Joy helps you plan your wedding, communicate with guests, manage RSVPs, share and capture every moment before, during and after the wedding. Sounds good, right? Here are seven reasons why Joy makes weddings better:
1. JOY MAKES YOUR WEDDING WEBSITE… FOR FREE
Having a wedding website is just as much a requirement as sending invitations. But making a wedding website is time-consuming, especially when you’re already busy making a wedding. When you use Joy, you get a beautiful, personalized wedding website where you can share your story, your wedding party, a detailed schedule, your registries and more in just a few minutes. It’s easy, it’s free, and it houses all the photos your guests share after the wedding. You can even download them, for free, in high-res!
2. JOY CAPTURES MEMORIES FROM EVERY POINT OF VIEW
If you are planning a wedding, you are probably hiring, or at least designating, an official wedding photographer to document key moments of your big day. Joy doesn’t replace professional wedding photography, it adds to it. Joy lets any guest add moments to your personal, private photostream. You can personalize those memories, candid moments and guest reactions into an elegant, permanent timeline, even after the wedding. And with Joy’s LiveShow feature, you can project the photos as they appear.
3. JOY MAKES MANAGING YOUR GUEST LIST A BREEZE
Let’s be real – managing a wedding guest list can be a real challenge. Whether it’s people forgetting to RSVP, unexpected requests for plus-ones, or trying to not mix up the paleo meal requests from the vegan ones, guest lists are HARD. Joy makes it easy to manage your wedding guest list with online RSVP, easy reminders and custom RSVP questions. You can even upload your guest list from a regular old spreadsheet in a few easy steps.
4. JOY IS EASY ENOUGH FOR ANYBODY TO USE
Joy isn’t the only wedding app out there, but it’s the easiest to use. Seriously. If your great-aunt Hilda can take a picture with her smartphone, she can use Joy. Yes, it’s true, Joy was designed and built by a team of super smart, super savvy computer geeks, but we tested it out with our own moms, grandpas and Great-Aunt Hildas – and they were Joy’s biggest fans. Anybody can use Joy to capture wedding photos and memories.
5. JOY HAS ALL THE ANSWERS
When you plan a wedding, it’s all you think about. But your guests may not be as laser-focused until the day of. They lose invitations, forget to send RSVPs, and forget to look at wedding websites. As a result, you or your bridal party get bombarded with last minute questions when you’re preoccupied with other things, like getting ready for a wedding. If your guests use Joy, they have all the answers, including a detailed schedule, your registry information, details about hotels, transportation and more at their fingertips. You can even create an FAQ for your wedding. Every time a new question comes up, you can add it to your personal FAQ, and it will live on your wedding website and in the Joy app. We work hard to make your life easier.
6. JOY BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER
There are lots of great things about weddings (Cake! Champagne! An excuse to do the Macarena!), but more than anything, weddings are about people, and Joy makes it easier for all the people at your wedding to capture every moment and communicate with each other and with the couple getting married. With Joy, guests can get to know each other through the app as soon as they RSVP so that they can get to know each other sooner. It’s a virtual ice-breaker.
7. YOU CONTROL JOY’S PRIVACY SETTINGS
With Joy, decide whether you want the whole world to know where and when your wedding is happening, or if the information is only accessible to your invited guests. If you don’t want people sharing images on public social networks like Instagram and Facebook, Joy makes it easy to collect your guests’ photos, as well as their comments on each other’s images and messages, and collect as many memories as possible in a private space.
