Google: The New Wedding Planner?

NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Google (Stock Quote: GOOG) is known for a lot of things, but romance isn’t one of them. Now it looks like the company is ready to change that.

The tech giant launched a new feature this week called Google Weddings that is designed to help soon-to-be brides and grooms plan their big day. Google Weddings combines a host of existing Google features including Picnik - an online photo editing tool - and Google Docs for word documents and spreadsheets then repurposes them as tools to easily map out wedding details.

With Google Weddings, users can easily create a website to promote their wedding, and upload and edit photos for all the world to see. Google also provides templates for designing the website as well as creating customized cards for the wedding. And perhaps most useful of all, the Google Docs feature integrated into Weddings makes it easy for users to create spreadsheets and documents to keep track of their wedding budget and to-do lists.

“From wedding websites to save-the-date cards, these tools simplify wedding planning, letting you focus your time on the fun things—like tasting cakes!” Lisa Conquergood, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Google, wrote on the company’s blog.

This tool may not relieve all your stress, but hopefully it will at least keep you organized.

In honor of the launch of this feature, Google is also hosting a contest for anyone getting married in the next year. Anyone over the age of 18 can apply for the chance to win a $25,000 prize and the opportunity to have the wedding designed by Michelle Rago, a renowned wedding planner.
