Having a digital identity helps you plan for the Big Day and enables you to traverse geographical boundaries, making the web a part of your pre-wedding rituals, finds Verve

The wedding website is one of importance, especially for those who register for gifts. A typical website doesn’t just have the love story and the venue details and information about the destination but also an online link to the wedding gift registry. A practice mainly for those living abroad, these links to Macys and Bed, Bath and Beyond are a perfect pit-stop for all the socially-networked and jet-setting guests to finish their gift shopping in a few clicks. One can plan everything from eco-friendly weddings with moss-covered napkin holders to really creative ones – enough to turn even the most confirmed spinsters into wannabe-brides.

Because Apple is now the king of the world, you don’t even need access to a computer to plan a wedding. Simply plan your month-long spa treatments and everything else under the sun through the easy touch of your iPhone. For instance, Tiffany & Co. has an application called the ‘Engagement Ring Finder’ which comes in three languages (English, Chinese, Japanese) and lets you browse styles, view actual carat weights, determine your ring size and learn why diamonds can make even the most dull screen sparkle.

With over 20 years and 80,000 authoritative reviews written by their expert team at Wine Enthusiast Magazine and live data, the right bottle is just a few taps away. Applications like ‘Wedding Dress Look Book’ or ‘The Wedding Organiser,’ or those specialising in invitations or flowers, help you plan all aspects digitally. The Do-It-Yourself generation may just move weddings online with FaceTime!
