Google has just released this FANTASTIC package for all the DIY brides out there, I just had to jump on and tell you about it straight away.
It has been designed with Google and renowned Wedding Planner Michelle Rago along with input from Style Me Pretty. It includes an easy website builder, stationary maker, spreadsheet planners and photo album sharer. And what is the best part... its FREE!!! Check it out!.... www.google.com/weddings/
You will want to be mildly computer savvy and have a Google account. If you don't have one yet, why not!? Google is where its at Baby! This is very easy to create here: www.google.com/accounts/Login and lets you use all their standard free tools ie. gmail, calender, docs etc
So here is a brief run through from my quick squiz at the whole thing....
Firstly, there is a website builder so you can whip up a very handy little site dedicated to your wedding, you can post basically anything you like pics, music, videos, information for your guests, that perhaps you didn't want to squash into your invitation.
Secondly, and my favorite bit of the package, there is a little design program (Picnik) that lets you whip up very stylish wedding related stationary. There are templates for save the date cards, tables numbers, name cards etc, with some very cute patterns available to choose from.
Thirdly, there is an awesome package of spreadsheet templates for helping you to organise and manage all the wedding related information from guest lists, to seating charts, to budget planners, to menus! How cool is this!?!
Lastly, there is Picassa, Google's online photo album that allows you to easily share your wedding photos or planning ideas with friends and family.
