My Style Wedding: its background and power

Welcome to My Style Wedding, the world’s first three dimensional, interactive wedding planner.

My Style Wedding was developed to move wedding planning and its software to the next level in terms of technology and of the needs of couples to see what they will achieve with their hours of work and considerable expenditures. It is surprising that existing print and software wedding planners are, mainly, list creating machines, with no ability to ‘show’ the wedding being planned. 3D technology allows planners to see and experience every detail of their work as it will appear in real life.

The developers of My Style Wedding were inspired by stories of couples who were disappointed that their actual venues fell short of their dreams – lacks they became aware of only in the last few days before the wedding. Now dreams come true on the computer screen even as early as the day after the proposal. Couples can design the venues they want or change supplied templates to the venues they have arranged so they can see every detail long before the critical final days of planning.

In My Style Wedding, couples have all the standard tools needed to plan one of the most special days of their lives plus the ability to see all their plans come true before their eyes. An engaged couple truly can ‘dream it, plan it and live it’ with all the color, pageantry, fun and excitement that only My Style Wedding can provide. A professional planner, mother of the bride or other helper also can see the dream unfold and compare their realistic scenes with those of the couple until everyone is in the same ‘picture.’

The 3D technology of My Style Wedding allows a planner to see the venue for each Wedding event the way it will look in real life. Beginning with templates or generic scenes of events, the planner can customize these rooms or outdoor settings with color, changes in size and textures, and additions of decorations, personal photos and other things so venues reflect real life choices.

The Interactive technology of My Style Wedding means a couple can ‘navigate’ or move around in settings. Walk down the aisle at ‘your’ ceremony and lead the first dance at ‘your’ reception. Walk around each setting just as ‘you’ will on the days of ‘your’ Wedding, bachelor party and bridal shower. The Wedding Party can use My Style Wedding to rehearse and experience their roles long before they enter actual venues.

The market

My Style Wedding has been developed for just engaged couples and those assisting them in the planning of larger weddings or for professional planners.

The majority of just engaged couples are in the age groups most likely to have access to the Internet and to be users of the computer and the Internet for research and software tools. Statistics show about half of engaged couples search the Internet for help as they plan their weddings. Of course, with My Style Wedding’s amazing features, this percentage may rise.

The majority of professional planners will want the latest and most powerful tools so they can trade ideas back and forth with their customers. No other software provides the ability to trade ideas – and dreams – like My Style Wedding. Planners can develop and display photo-realistic venues and elements at any time in the planning so the engaged couple can see and feel each detail before they approve it.

The power and excitement of My Style Wedding will appeal as well to couples planning smaller weddings, and particularly to those who envision weddings with a difference. My Style Wedding is ideal for the planner of the outdoor wedding since landscaping can be added or altered. Photos of actual yard scenes can be placed in My Style Wedding as part of the interactive tableaux. My Style Wedding can visualize a beach wedding or any other intimate or exotic wedding scene.

No doubt, there will be dreamers who will be attracted to My Style Wedding. Using the tools in this software, a wedding aficionado can emulate a celebrity wedding or plan dream weddings of their own without a date – or even a ‘date’ – in reality.

My Style Wedding can be a valuable tool for others because of its power to transform any venue into a wedding scene. The planner of a Bridal Shower or Bachelor Party can use My Style Wedding to layout a venue whether in a hired hall, backyard or household. The Banquet Staff of a hotel or Reception Hall can use My Style Wedding to illustrate their facilities and plans to customers.

My Style Wedding can be used even by planners who already have entered data into other planners; depending on the technology of the original database, information can be imported into My Style Wedding from the planner that lacks the 3D interactivity of My Style Wedding.

My Style Wedding will help preserve memories long after the wedding. A plan created in My Style Wedding will serve as a visual reminder as well as a definitive database for couples as they relive and share their dreams and memories.

The Software

The engaged couple learns about My Style Wedding through the Mystylewedding.com website or packaging that provides extensive help in the form of how-to videos and text explanations of each great feature. My Style Wedding not only shows couples their wedding far in advance, it ‘talks’ to them every step of the way.

My Style Wedding helps you each step of the way with easy-to-use ‘Wizards’, and extensive online Help. We provide you with a comprehensive list of the things you should consider as you plan. In most cases, you can click on a list or a ‘drop down’ menu and choose the task or item you wish to include in your plan. If you don’t find the listing you need, you’ll be able to type it in yourself.

An opening Wedding Setup Wizard allows you to begin creating your unique wedding plan. You can choose the settings you have dreamed about: the church, chapel or synagogue wedding ceremony with the grand hotel or banquet hall reception; the outdoor wedding and reception in your yard; or the beachfront gala. Use the generic templates provided in My Style Wedding and customize and personalize them at will to suit the colors and character of your real venues and the placement of your guests.

An invaluable Timeline guides you through the events, appointments and tasks that lead to your Wedding Day. Did you know you should order the bridal gown and headpiece ten months before your Wedding Day? You will when you follow My Style Wedding’s terrific Timeline.

And, in the Overview, you’ll find an up-to-date count of your Guests, their RSVP status, your Estimated Costs and the Current Amount you have spent. You’ll never lose track of your planning with My Style Wedding’s all-inclusive Overview.

Once you’ve entered your guest information, you’ll be able to place, see and even move among your guests in the world’s first, photo realistic 3D wedding settings.

RSVP

With the RSVP feature in My Style Wedding, you won’t have to worry about who will come to your wedding and who just can’t make it.

A secondary menu allows you to note details of special attention that might be required by any guest. Here, you can note times and locations for Pickup and Drop Off of guests and details of Accommodations they might need while ‘in town.’

Events

A wedding is much more than a ceremony; it is a host of events including the reception, bridal shower, bachelor party, rehearsal dinner and so on. You want each of these events to be carefully planned to provide you and your guests with an experience that is fun, exciting and even dramatic. Your dreams come to life when you plan each event with this feature and, then, see each event in three dimensions.
