To Zola Couples past, present, and future,
Since we launched Zola registry in 2013, we’ve heard one main question from our couples:
We love the Zola registry experience—is there any way you can help us create a wedding website?
We already consider ourselves so lucky to help make the happiest moment in a couple’s life even happier. But to be asked if we can be even more involved? That’s an honor! And it’s not to be ignored. So we asked ourselves, what can we do next to help couples?
Today, we’re so excited to introduce you to Zola Weddings, a suite of wedding planning tools including your wedding website, registry, checklist, and guest list all in one place. And because couples have enough quotes and bills to take care of, we made these tools entirely free to use.
We know how important a couple’s wedding website is—it sets the tone for the big day and is the destination for guests to get all the information they need. We created over 30 gorgeous, free designs (and we’ll add more regularly) that can be easily personalized with photos, stories and your wedding details.
You know that we know registry. You can expect the same benefits that have made us today’s fastest growing registry. But now we’ve made it possible for guests to shop a couple’s Zola registry directly on their Zola wedding website.
The struggle to get everything done is real and the checklists out there fall short—they’re old-fashioned, impersonal, or missing tasks. So we created an entirely customizable to-do list that takes into account a couple’s unique wedding details, even religious/cultural traditions. You can add, edit, or delete tasks, and set deadlines for each one. And if you download our free Zola Weddings app onto your iPhone, we’ll notify you when something needs to get done.
Very few of us can remember the last time we sent snail mail, but the tradition of sending physical wedding invitations isn’t going anywhere. We wanted to build a feature that could bridge our digital world and the one that weddings thrive in. So with our tool, couples can easily collect guests’ addresses, formally format them for save the dates and invitations, track RSVPs and gifts in real time, and communicate with their guests.
Our goal is to alleviate at least some of the stress associated with wedding planning, so you can enjoy your engagement even more. We invite you to use our new tools and let us know if you have any feedback. What did we get right? More importantly, how can we make this even better? Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can always reach out to a Zola Advisor for help.
If you’re a past or current Zola Couple, thank you for letting us be part of your journey. And if you’re planning a wedding, we can’t wait to take care of you.
Wishing you all the best,
Shan & Nobu
