Technology is rapidly changing the way we do just about everything, and wedding planning is no exception. With the right tools, you can streamline the entire process, eliminating stress and saving time, energy and money. There are all sorts of ways to go about it, but Joy, a brand-new wedding planning website and app, has consolidated everything you'll ever need to keep yourself organized before, during and after the big day. The website and app (both free!) are transforming the way couples plan their special day. From sharing and coordinating the details, to managing guests and capturing the joy of your wedding, Joy's customizable tools are a fun, stylish and easy way to keep yourself and your guests organized. There are loads of features to love, but Joy narrowed down the six that really stand out.

1. Guest Management

Raise your hand if you’ve misplaced a wedding invite or missed an RSVP deadline! Joy is making that a thing of the past. With Joy, inviting and organizing your guest list, communicating and coordinating all your wedding details is simple. Throw out those spreadsheets, or import them. With Joy, you can keep all your guest's information in a single place. Invite guests, send custom messages, and get responses—directly in the app. Build stylish online save-the-dates, or instantly print a full paper suite that perfectly matches your website and app.

2. Communication Tools

Finally get those RSVPs on-time and ask guests about dietary restrictions, +1s and addresses. Responses are stored, making it easy to ask and simple to answer. Joy also allows you to send up-to-the minute push notifications to let everybody know what’s happening when, like a reminder to silence phones during the ceremony, or to announce the cake-cutting at the reception.

3. Photo Collection

Professional photographers take beautiful photos of key parts of the wedding. But you don’t want to miss the candid shots, like selfies on the dance floor. Joy allows your guests to share the photos they capture on your “Moments” timeline, so you can see your wedding day from their perspective. The timeline allows your guests to follow along and be an intimate part of the journey. The live slideshow feature allows you to display the timeline, so everyone can watch the wedding unfold as it's happening, for family and friends both at the wedding and at home.

4. Information Sharing

From your wedding schedule to hotel and shuttle listings, Joy makes the planning and sharing of information easy. With the wedding schedule in the Joy app, there are no more lost invitations or last-minute calls trying to find out where to go and when things are happening. Share your registry information by including the links to as many registries as you'd like to be displayed on your website and app.

Joy gives you complete control over the privacy of your wedding. Choose which parts of your website are visible to everyone and what requires a code for access. You can also choose what your guests are able to share via social media.

5. Custom Wedding Website

Create a beautiful wedding website in minutes. Add photos, choose your wedding colors and fonts, and let Joy do the rest. With Joy's easy-to-use streamlined design you can share all the information your guests will need and want to know. Highlight the wedding party by introducing them through photos and bios, share schedules, updates, timelines and travel details. It's all of your information expertly organized and stylishly customized.

6. Intuitive Software

Ultimately, Joy is a wedding planning tool centered around communication and data management. The key to their software is making wedding planning easier, faster and more efficient, automating chores and making cumbersome tasks less painful, while leaving room for creativity and personal expression. A simple, stylish design and a platform that allows you to focus on the task at hand, rather than the tools, is the singular focus of Joy.
