 Number of Couples Using the Internet to Give Details of Marriage on the Rise
More and more couples are using internet to not only send out invites to their weddings but to also give out other details.

Following in the footsteps of Prince William and Kate Middleton, whose wedding website was launched by the Palace last week, hundreds of soon-to-be-married couples have launched their own.

Couples are offering guests the chance to examine photographs of them in the years before they met, alongside biographies and the story of their fairytale romance, as well as providing practical information about the event itself.

Guests can even RSVP online, saving the brides and grooms-to-be the task and expense of sending out printed invitations.

Wedding planner Cheryl Dowie, of Inverness-based Premier Wedding Planners Scotland, has noticed a huge rise in demand for the service.

"Over the past year or so, it has become a really big thing. It is particularly popular among younger couples, who are more Internet savvy," the Scotsman quoted her as saying.

"It takes a lot of stress off the bride and groom, if they can tell people details about the wedding, such as travel or accommodation information, over the internet - they're not having to field phone calls and queries in the days running up to the event.

"I was very impressed and a bit surprised that William and Kate chose to have one - it shows that they are really trying to make what they are doing relevant to the younger generation and not be too traditional," she added.
