WeddingWire Introduces the Easiest Way to Build Your Wedding Guest List

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) -  WeddingWire, the nation's leading wedding technology website, has expanded their already extensive suite of free wedding planning tools to include two new features designed to ease the pain and stress of building a wedding guest list.

Already known to have the most comprehensive Guest List tool in the industry, WeddingWire is strengthening their offering with the addition of the Contact Importer and Address Collection tools. With this new functionality, engaged couples are able to quickly and efficiently build and complete their wedding guest list, a chore that plagues most couples during their planning process.

"After extensive surveys across WeddingWire users, it was clear that collecting guest addresses is a major pain point for engaged couples," says Timothy Chi, WeddingWire CEO. "No one in the wedding industry had addressed this problem so we took it upon ourselves to provide our users with yet another set of tools to reduce the stress of planning a wedding."

The Contact Importer tool now allows couples to import contact names and email addresses from three popular online email services. Once contacts are imported into the WeddingWire Guest List, users are invited to send an email through the Address Collection tool to friends and family with a request to update their mailing addresses. This address information is automatically updated in the couple's WeddingWire Guest List. In just a few simple steps, the tedious task of gathering guest names and addresses is complete.

The inclusion of the Contact Importer and Address Collection tools into the WeddingWire Guest List will fundamentally change the often daunting task of compiling and managing a wedding guest list by creating a time-saving and more user-friendly experience for engaged couples. 

These two new tools further enhance WeddingWire's award-winning suite of free wedding planning tools. From the wedding vendor search and the wedding checklist to the wedding budget and drag-and-drop seating chart, engaged couples will find the best-in-breed tools to satisfy their planning needs. For more information, please visit www.WeddingWire.com.
