More Custom Wedding Maps!

August 20, 2012

Custom wedding maps are a MUST have for any destination wedding or a wedding with a bunch of out-of-town guests.  You can include them in invitations or welcome bags.  Maps can show guests a couple of key venues or you can add your favorite spots like restaurants, bars, spas, golf courses, shopping etc.  You can select your colors, fonts, and icons to make your wedding map as special as your wedding.  Check out some of our favorites!

New Guest Manager and Seating Chart tool!

August 11, 2009

Planning a wedding can be complicated. Not only are there many vendors, choices, and opinions to decide among, but there are also so many moving parts to keep track of. And when you add the complexity of many couples’ families today (step parents, half brothers, family feuds) it seems as though planning a wedding is a complex game of Tetris.

To help ease the frustration with tracking all of your wedding details, Wedding Mapper has just launched its Guest Manager. This new tool, currently in beta, not only allows you to manage your RSVP’s (did Aunt Sally say she can come to the Welcome Dinner but can’t come to the Farewell Breakfast, or the vice versa?) but it also helps to track your guests’ meal selection, address information, gifts received AND seating arrangements per event.

Just when you thought creating a seating chart was only a matter of picking tables and placing guests at each table per your desired room layout, Wedding Mapper has stepped in and has accounted for the stress of managing family altercations. When you add a guest to your Guest Manager you can place parameters around who else they MUST and CANNOT sit with (World War III may erupt if Uncle John and Aunt Linda sit at the same table)! Then when you’re creating your seating chart, it will place guests together if you have requested that (which means faster seating!) and will remind you if, by accident, you seat John and Linda together. We’re looking out for you!

The flow among all the content within the Guest Manager allows for an easy and fun way to track all the content around your guests. We know your wedding planning process can be stressful, so we’re doing all we can to help organize your planning – so you don’t have to.

A Great Quote

December 4, 2007

We just received this quote from a recently-married bride:

“This is a great website.  I found it so easy to use…even my not so computer savy mom figured it all out.  Thanks for saving me hundreds of dollars for printed maps in my invitaitons!”

We spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to make Wedding Mapper as intuitive and easy to use as possible, so it’s always great to hear that our efforts are paying off.

You can read more quotes from couples that have used Wedding Mapper in our “What People Are Saying” page.

Wedding Maps Galore

April 18, 2007

We didn’t even realize it at the time, but a few days ago we passed the 10,000 registered wedding maps mark. Since you don’t have to register to try out Wedding Mapper this means that over 10,000 engaged couples have found Wedding Mapper useful enough to register for the site over the past 3 months since our launch. A significant portion of those have liked the site so much that they’ve decided to upgrade their accounts as well.

This is just the beginning and we’ve got some great plans in mind to improve the site, but it’s a great start!

Quotes We’ve Gathered

February 9, 2007

We’re putting the final touches on our press release and wanted to share some of the quotes we’ve gathered from emails, message boards, and blog comments. So far the response has been fantastic. These are all qoutes from real people. In fact these are only a fraction of all of the blog posts, comments, emails, etc. that we’ve found out there about Wedding Mapper!

Yeah!!! I love this mapper!! So easy to use and great to add to your wedding website! What a great find!

Wedding mapper has really helped me visualize where potential ceremony, reception, hotel and rehearsal dinner locations are in relation to each other. I have enjoyed brainstorming places my guests would enjoy visiting while in the city and plotting them on a map. Wedding Mapper has helped make that easy.

You just saved me so much stress from figuring out how in the world i was going to make a map. Thanks so much!!!!

OMG THIS IS AMAZING. So perfect. Thanks so much for posting this.

This is JUST was I was needing! Thanks sooo much! :)

OMG!!! I am in adoration of this! I love it. I have already started creating ours. Thank you sooo much!

My fiancee Carolina and I have had an excellent experience with the Wedding Mapper and think it is a great showcase of the power of Web 2.0 and Mashups. I congratulate you for putting together a killer app that can only improve with time. We can’t wait to send our friends the link as soon as all of the event dates and locations are set. It was easy to configure our wedding map and even easier to use. We recommend the Wedding Mapper to anyone getting married in the year 2007 and beyond!

But, it’s the coolest thing and I couldn’t help but share!

this is such a great site- I wish they had this a few months back before I got married! Thanks for sharing!

Wedding mapper was very useful for organizing my wedding, since many of the guests are coming from other countries, and I could manage perfectly hotel accommodations and transports. The web page is very simple to use and effective for putting all desired information in a very clear way. Very recommended.

Love it, love it, love it. I just made one and linked it to my wedding website.

I’m soooo excited thanks for sharing a professional program that is FREE YAYAYAYAYAYAY!

I’m in the early stages of using wedding mapper but already it has been such a handy resource for us and our wedding guests. I am glad that we can easily place it on our website and allow our guests to gather directions from wherever their starting point is. Handing out general directions just doesn’t cut it much of the time. So thank you for this great resource!

What a great find – thanks for sharing! Saving to favs…

OH MY GOSH!! I love this. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m off to play :)

My son is geting married in April and we have quite a few guests coming from USA, Canada and other parts of the UK. I found Wedding Mapper and thought it was a brilliant way to send people information in advance of their visit. It’s especially good for some guests who will be flying in just a day before and won’t have time to familiarise themselves with the area. We’ve had lots of emails back telling us how good it is and everyone especially likes the satelite views!

another awesome tool!!

omg this is great

The map maker is really cool. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, that is such a cool site!

I was just picking my brain about how i was going to print out maps.
This was very helpful!
THANKS A BUNCH!!!!

I can even put a link to the map on our wedding web site.

OMG…it’s awesome. Thanks so much!

This is awesome. Thanks so much for sharing!

Wedding Mapper is SWEET! Thanks Jared, sincerely… I have a few guests that are ‘home bodies’ and fear traveling from their country or city to Toronto for the wedding – so this is great as it streamlines all the necessary details visually.

Loving this. Thank you Mrs. Bee!

I started ours too – this is awesome!

Hey this map thin is pretty sweet! Thanks!

Wish I had known about this two years ago!! We used mapquest – it’s nothing like this website though!

Thank you for the links, I love the mapmaker!

OMG!!!!!! This map is great!!

That’s really cool! I love all the fun stuff you guys find!

that’s awesome! thanks for sharing!

This site rocks! Thanks Mrs. Bee…I will definitely be using this site!

that’s awesome! I love it! Thanks

This is a great find, thanks.

This is so handy! Thanks for sharing it with us!!

I have a website on Weddingmapper and LOVE it.
It is really cute and helpful. We have a lot of international guests, so it is a great way for them to be able to visualize the city.
It’s easy and only takes a couple of minutes to set up.

Wish I had know about this a few months ago.

I was lookin for a way out of drawing a map to the ceremony/reception!

omg! this is awesome!

It’s awesome! Thank you! I used it and love it!

Wedding Mapper provided a personal and interactive way of being able to connect with my guests. Maps offered through invitation companies are expensive and I get nervous at just the thought of trying to produce one myself on a computer – the wedding mapper is an effective alternative. The cute icons and interactive options help all guests feel a part of the big day before it even arrives.

OK, that is the coolest site! Awesome find!

I just want to thank you for creating such a wonderful tool. I came across this website by word of mouth, and I will definitely pass this along to my engaged friends. This product makes my life easier because it offers details, directions and a map all in one! This is a product that I would happily pay for.

Thank you!!! That is FABULOUS!!!

Thanks to everyone for all the great feedback! We’ll be putting these quotes and more on the new “What People Are Saying” page. If anyone has any other feedback please email us at feedback@weddingmapper.com. In the meantime we’ll continue to improve Wedding Mapper, making it one of the best resources for engaged couples on the Internet!
