It’s no secret that we all get really excited when technology makes yet one more part of wedding planning easier and fun! One thing that I didn’t think about for my own wedding, until it was too late, is how to collect all of the photos that friends and family took during our 4 day event. For weeks after the wedding, I received emails with links to various photo sharing sites – some saved here, some saved there. Of course in my post-festivity state, I wasn’t organized enough to create a directory of all the links. Now, I have no idea where most of the photos are. Epic Fail on my part.
But yet again, a group of smart, young, insightful entrepreneurs have created a service that help us solve the problem even before we know it is a problem. Enter Wedding Snap – a new tech company focused on helping your guests collect photos of your celebration in one, streamlined place. Wedding Snap has just released their widget code, which makes it easy for you to incorporate their service right into your Glösite pages. Perfect for sharing all of the photos with friends after your celebration. I asked Michelle Tang from Wedding Snap if she would be willing to give you all some pointers on how to use the service with your Glösite. Here’s what she had to say:
So you’ve built your Glosite and it looks amazing. But it’s a few days after your wedding and trying to remember all of the fun moments you had. You turn to Facebook or pester a friend, but only get a glimpse of one or two pictures and you’re left there wanting to reminisce some more.
With Wedding Snap, you can gather all of your precious wedding memories in one place with ease. Wedding Snap is an online photo sharing experience that uses IPhone and Android apps to help instantly collect photos in one online album. Every photo that is taken with the app is uploaded to the live album. No waiting or begging. Your guests can watch your wedding happen in real-time, no matter where they are.
How Does it Work? Sign up, create an album code (e.g. Ashley25), and share that code among your guests through 250 personalized instruction cards that Wedding Snap sends you. Your guests will download the free Wedding Snap app to their smart phones. Every picture that your guests take through the app, a copy of it will be automatically uploaded directly to your album.
The service starts as low as $99 and the app is free. So, it doesn’t matter if you have an intimate wedding in Bora Bora with 10 close relatives and friends or if you rented out the entire hotel to fit your 500 guests, the price is the same.
But why am I sharing this with all of you Globies? With the new embedded code option, you can now have all of those Wedding Snap photos in your Glosite (I know, you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat for this)! Your friends and family can check our your Glosite to see all of the wedding photos they took in real-time. Now, you’re probably thinking, how do I get my photos in one place because I just can’t wait a moment longer!
