After all; technology is everywhere, so why not put it to good use as far as possible?

Today we are presenting 5 ways in which modern technology can help reduce stress that every bride (and her family) invariably undergoes while planning her Indian wedding. There are plenty of ideas in this article as well as resourceful links to help you access top wedding planning sites and applications. Using these resources, you can easily plan your entire wedding from start to finish.

  1. Technology for your BIG announcement


As soon as you are engaged, you can announce the news to the world through social media. A WORD OF CAUTION here: be very careful and mindful while doing this. This is one area wherein Internet gurus and etiquette experts ask brides-to-be to tread very carefully. First of all: announcing an engagement could end up alienating some of your single friends. Secondly, if you are planning to have an intimate wedding and not inviting all your friends over for the wedding, it is best not to make a big announcement; rather only disclose the news to select ones.

  1. Technology helps save efforts, time, money

Now that you have drawn the initial guest lists, you can simply use online invitation portals to send out the e-invites. Not only is this very easy to do-(you can even do it at home from the comforts of your armchair)- you even end up saving paper, time and money. Think about all the stress you eliminate using this easy-to-follow procedure. Secondly, you get your vendors to come to your doorstep, rather than travelling to meet different ones. Simply go to our wedding directory listing and Indian wedding venues and have them contact you with quotes that are within your budget. The entire bridal trousseau can also be purchased online from reputed sources.

  1. Technology helps plan the A-Z of the wedding


Today the Smartphone helps us not only share photos instantly, it can even be used to plan wedding budgets, form initial and final guest lists, contact vendors as mentioned above, and have a ready-to-use handy planning checklist. This can definitely ensure that everything runs as per schedule. We recommend simple wedding planner mobile apps like the Android friendly ‘Wedding Planner’  which has received some rave reviews. Even our wedding portal, which is mobile-friendly, can give you everything you need when it comes to planning a stress-free Indian wedding literally at the touch of a button.

  1. Technology inspires you to find your  perfect wedding theme

Today, wedding blogs are known to have inspired entire weddings from start to finish. Be it choosing the wedding colour palettes, the Sangeet/Mehendi theme, finding out the top designer and stationery suppliers to style the bridal attire/stationery as per the theme; wedding portals help you do it all. Real wedding stories shared by real brides help other to-be brides plan their dream wedding theme or colours. One can even get information on how to create unique Indian wedding themes through discussions with like-minded to-be brides on wedding forums.

  1. Technology gets you the perfect wedding gifts and helps your guests

While wedding registries is a new concept in India, it is fast catching on. Not only do you not have to walk into a gift store to create your wedding registry, (you can do it online these days) you get added benefits such as: free of cost, easy-to-modify (if you change your mind), huge variety in gifting options and avoiding duplicate gifts. This is convenient for you as well as your guests who are saved the hassle of running around town finding the perfect wedding gift for you.
