Wedding reception is a moment most awaited by brides and bridegrooms to-be, families, friends, and colleagues. Most of us don’t want to miss this special occassion that is celebrated by our dearest and nearest. But, more often than not, we cannot attend a wedding reception due to distance, or they live out of town or even country.
But you need not worry any longer. Now, the www.wemary.com website will soon present live streaming of wedding receptions. The portal is developed by four UGM students, Mugi Rahayu Wilujeng, Afan Anas Alhakim, Anjar Romadona, and Almas Berliyan, that has entered the Innovative Academy UGM 2014 programme.
“The wemary.com site will broadcast live the wedding reception made specially for the happy couple. So, their friends and families who are unable to come to the venue will be able to see it live. We hope this can be published by mid-year,” said CEO of wemary.com, Mugi Rahayu Wilujeng, on Monday (15/2) on UGM campus.
Ajeng said wemary.com is an integrated wedding website, integrating features to bridge the wishes and needs of the bride and groom and family.
“The initial idea was the many invitations that we received from fellow students, but we were unable to come due to locations and limited time. This had driven us to develop wemary.com,” said Ajeng who has just graduated from Faculty of Social and Political Sciences.
The wemary.com website is equipped with online invitation, online RSVP, google calendar, and google maps. All is integrated with the social media.
“The bride and groom who want to make use of our service need only to order on the site, mention their wish list, theme, etc. Then we will make a personal wedding domain based on their wishes and choice of order,” she said.
It also allows guests to give a special wedding present to the couple. They can pick the presents that are already selected by the couple without wasting time to shopping and delivering the gift. They can do the shopping online for 9 categories of gifts that include fashion, bedroom decoration, electronics, kitchen utensils, vouchers and accessories.
According to Almas, up to this stage, not a few brides have received gifts they don’t need due to the lack of knowledge on the giver’s part about what to give.
“Through the wemary.com, guests are informed about the needs of the soon-to-be spouses,” she said.
So, if you plan for your wedding in the near future, this service may become your choice for your happy moment with your loved ones.
