It's a showcase and a meeting place
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
WedShare.com announces new online photo management and editing capabilities, saying that engaged couples -- more budget-minded than ever in today's economy--now have even more to gain when taking advantage of a personal wedding website.
WedShare.com co-founder and CEO Crystal Melendez says that over 80 percent of today's engaged couples rely on the Internet during their wedding planning, and that personal wedding websites are a rising trend. According to Melendez, they are an inexpensive and easy-to-use alternative to costly, time-consuming planning items like stationery, bulky invitation enclosures and RSVP management. She also attributes a large part of the websites' popularity to shared imagery and the social networking aspect.
"It's a showcase and a meeting place," Melendez says. "A couple can create their own website without any technical know-how. They use it to correspond with their guests and bridal party, with their families and friends. It's a way to communicate and share the planning experience with everyone. Imagery and photographs are a major part of that."
WedShare.com's new suite of photo features allow members to move hundreds of photos online from their computers, cameras, or phones in a few mouse clicks, and there's no limit to the number. Photos can be styled, cropped, grouped into albums, and converted into professional slideshows complete with commentary. There's also the ability of family and friends to add their thoughts into the mix by posting their own comments.
"These new photo features have been essentially designed by our members," Melendez says. "We get so much great ongoing feedback from engaged couples telling us exactly what they're looking for. It helps to ensure that we have a truly solid product in the end that people will love to use."
