Wedivite expands into Spanish-language market due to popular demand
Tel Aviv, June 24, 2014 – Wedivite, the web’s first free socially-integrated digital invitation platform devoted exclusively to weddings, which went live in January 2014, announces its official launch today with over 9,000 happy couples and counting. Wedivite’s unique features allow guests to RSVP, add the event to their Google calendar with a single click, get directions via Google Maps or Waze, write greetings, recommend songs for the DJ’s playlist, send gifts via PayPal, and take photos to contribute to the wedding album and a live slideshow. The platform provides users with a number of options for sending invitations, depending on their social media proclivity. Through the website, guests can be invited via email, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or a QR code. App users can send invitation via SMS or Whatsapp.
The website and accompanying mobile application works for contemporary couples looking for innovative ways to make their wedding stand apart while lowering costs, demonstrating environmental responsibility and increasing social engagement. Using the motto, “Instead of inviting your guests, engage them,” Wedivite became popular almost overnight with couples looking to replace the traditional invitation with a digital one – or to use both – in countries around the world such as India, the United States, South Africa, the United Kingdom and Canada. The Spanish-language version of the site was added just in time for the launch, due to popular demand from users in Spain, Latin America and the United States.
“At the time of the digital blaze, the wedding world remained almost untouched,” said Ben Novak, founder. “Wedivite is here to re-set the standard of wedding invitations from the traditional to the digital. By putting social media integration at the forefront of our platform, we recognize the influence that social media and digital presence has in the lives of today’s couples.”
Research shows that one’s “relationship status” is indeed the digital age’s version of flaunting a new diamond ring. 31% of engaged women update their status within hours of saying “Yes” (per Mashable’s social and tech wedding survey, 2012). Other trends show that couples are forgoing classic wedding formats in favor of ceremonies and receptions that reflect their personal tastes and life choices, while doing their utmost to create a positive experience for guests. This goal, together with the reality of rising overall costs and lower economic security, is encouraging couples to look for new ways to cut costs while showcasing their individuality. For those who are reluctant to part with tradition but still want the social and organizational benefits of a digital platform, Wedivite offers a unique QR code to print on the paper invitation.
Other features currently being developed include a service for photo prints, text reminders for guests, and designer invitation templates. A Korean-language version of the site is pending.
