Create Your Dream Wedding the Fun and Easy Way with SimplyTie

There's a new way to plan your dream wedding and it couldn't be easier. SimplyTie simplifies the process of planning a wedding with their 5 easy to use online apps including budget planning, guest list builder, wedding registry, wedding photo sharing application, and the thank you card builder.
1. Plan Your Wedding Budget - simply plug in your overall wedding budget and based on the average cost for each aspect of the wedding - you will see how much you will want to consider spending on them. It's a great tool to see everything at a quick glance.

2. Build your Guest List - this is amazing. You can easily add in your guests but to give you a head start on creating your guest list you can add friends and family members from facebook. You can even keep track of the invitation being sent, if the RSVP has been received, their meal choices and if a thank you has been sent directly in the app. Lastly your SimplyTie Guest List will even do work for you while you sleep. It will send messages via Facebook or Email to collect your guest’s addresses you don’t already have.

3. Create Your Registry - whether it's a cash registry or a honeymoon registry you can create yours right here. You can add your own items or view the sample registries for ideas.

4. Showcase your Photos - you can share your photos with friends and family via a special dedicated link or you can even share them via social media. The best part of this is that it's integrated with smart phones - your guests can upload their photos from your wedding directly to your gallery from their phones and they're viewable instantly.

5 Easy Peasy Thank You Cards - you can instantly create your thank you cards with the SimplyTie app. Your gifts are automatically plugged into a template - but you can personalize each message to your guests as well as each thank you card letter template. You can choose to print the cards yourself or have SimplyTie do it for you.

The entire SimplyTie app can be used at no cost - but for a low price you can upgrade the specific apps you'd like more features with or you can choose to upgrade the entire SimplyTie service for even more functionality and features.
