The Next Big Thing for Your Guest List

Couples are sending online save-the-dates, creating hashtags for their weddings and live-streaming their ceremonies. In short, tech is becoming a major player in the wedding day.

Perhaps one of the coolest gadgets to come out of the event tech scene is a little handy app called Event Farm, an event organization tool that makes Excel look like a digital dinosaur.

I had the opportunity to use Event Farm for Love Inc.'s launch event and let me tell ya, it kicked my dated spreadsheet guest list to the curb. From organizing the guest list leading up to the event to easy breezy check-in and receiving notifications when certain guests arrived, it was an absolute godsend during an admittedly chaotic day. And afterwards, you are able to download a full report of who all came (particularly handy for a large wedding when writing those thank you cards). You can also add notes next to guests' names (perfect for avoiding place card confusion!) and even brand the app with your own personalized design. “Think of us as an all-purpose modern day guest registry,” says Claire Channell, marketing Coordinator for Event Farm. “We're not a cookie-cutter app that serves one type of couple. No matter how traditional or adventurous the couple and the wedding, Event Farm can help your day run smoothly.”

And if you want to save some dough and some trees, Event Farm lets you create an email invitation and their talented and friendly team helps you customize it using your own files and images — no boring templates to choose from! You can create, send, track and RSVP all through the site and you can even re-send to unconfirmed guests. Trust me when I say it's like herding cats to get people to RSVP — I'm totally digging the ability to see if they've even opened the email.

So this snazzy tool must be expensive, right? Wrong. If your event is 100 guests or less, it's free. Yes, FREE. And if your guest list is bigger than 100 people then it's only $75, which is practically nothing when your sanity is on the line. Interested in learning more?
