Spring will soon be in the air, and that means hundreds of thousands of weddings are literally being planned as I write this. Those of you who have tied the knot already know the planning process can be a marathon event as you make hundreds of decisions all leading up to the big day.
A new startup called WeddingDeck aims to take some of the stress out of getting hitched with its online wedding planner. Founded by Cedric Dugas, WeddingDeck helps you sort out the logistics of wedding planning so you can focus on things like bridesmaid dress colors or what to serve at the reception. Some of the features include:
- Guest confirmation and table seating management
- Contractors list management (from the caterer to the DJ)
- Task management to help you check off the to-do list
- Your own wedding web page
DIY brides aren’t the only ones who can benefit from this product. Professional wedding planners can offer planning services to their clients through WeddingDeck’s white label capabilities. This means planners can add their own logo to the site and sell it to clients as their own tool for a monthly fee.
For now, WeddingDeck is in beta and offering its platform for free. After that, the product will be priced from a $24 one-time fee to a subscription rate of $60 per month for wedding planners.
In the future, Dugas plans to release WeddingDeck as a native app on Android and iPhone using Phonegap, but for now you can check out WeddingDeck as a web application at http://weddingdeck.com/index.html.
