We published our story, managed the guest list by simply connecting my email and Facebook, and kept everyone updated on the go.
Guests took photos with the app and I had full control to edit or approve the ones I liked, stream photos in real-time, and share on social media. The privacy setting also allowed me to control who accessed my wedding website and app, with various permission settings.
For only $35, I completely eliminated paper invites, coordinated my entire wedding and saved a ton of money.
3. A wedding venue via Airbnb
I ditched popular wedding venues and opted for a beautiful Airbnb listed holiday home in Portsea, Victoria, about ninety minutes from Melbourne. The property, which had a stunning verdant, woody garden, pool and tennis court, was perfect for an intimate gathering of family and close friends. I made use of Airbnb’s referral vouchers which provided my guests a nice discount.
4. A ride with Uber
I put my hustle on and talked to my friends at Uber who provided all my guests, including those who flew from overseas and interstate, a generous Uber credit simply by entering our wedding code “jezroby”. I knew they were about to launch in the area so it was the perfect opportunity to partner.
5. Indiegogo as wedding registry
There were no gifts at my wedding. Instead I asked guests to contribute to my crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. It was integrated with my wedding website and app as the wedding registry, making it super-easy to contribute straight from the app. The good folks at Indiegogo also gave me PR support and featured my crowdfunding campaign on their platform.
6. Wedding hashtag
A digital wedding would not be complete without a social media hashtag. #JezRoby featured as our cake topper and chalkboard signage. There was no live-tweeting, however. Yes, it was a digital wedding but some things are too precious you want to live every single moment.
