Event Privacy Appreciated by Celebrities

Your Free Wedding Website www.eventasticweddings.com

 

There are some people ‘fortunate’ enough to have so much popularity that billions of people want to know their every move. It’s great when celebrities choose to oblige their fans by sharing some of their personal information with the public but there are many times where they need and want their privacy when it comes to personal matters. Celebrities aren’t the only ones that appreciate privacy with respect to certain events in their lives. We all have our reasons.

While the definition of ‘event’ indicates a planned occasion of some importance fostering social contact, we all know that doesn’t mean all events are made open to the general public by organizers.  Sometimes it’s a closed event. Eventastic.com and EventasticWeddings.com recognizes that people plan events regularly where a specific guest list is created and only those on that list are made privy to the event information and invited to attend. It’s no surprise that people like Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds or Kanye and Kim wouldn’t want their registry lists or photos viewable by the general public.

It was important to us to provide options to our users. By allowing for wedding events made on the Eventastic Weddings platform to be made ‘public’ or ‘private’, the attraction for those wanting to be discreet in planning their wedding has been widely appreciated and welcomed. Those with high profiles are able to create invites to their events/parties privately whether for personal reasons or otherwise.

When people create their wedding website on EventasticWeddings.com or other events and parties on Eventastic.com they must click a box on their planning page whether they wish their event to be ‘public’ or ‘private’. In so doing, if the creator clicks ‘private’, the event will NOT be searchable by the public under the “Find Event” tab on the website. Only potential guests who have been sent the URL to the event will be made aware of the wedding or event page and its details.

Wedding planners, high profile individuals and Corporations who host employees events all over the world  have shared their clients’ appreciation of our company’s sensitivity to their wishes and needs of privacy. With Eventastic providing the ticketing software to the Bridal Showplace Bridal Show with David Tutera in California last year and this year, attendees continue to express their excitement to learn of the Eventastic Weddings and Eventastic website and how helpful it was to the planning of their event and sharing important details with guests.

If you are thinking of planning an event that involves ticketing or registration don’t hesitate. There is no other software out there that does what this does AND it is free to use for free events.

How to Create a Universal Gift Registry for your Wedding

There is this tradition that when a couple in love decides to get married, those attending the wedding to witness the joyous occasion, want to express their happiness for the couple by gifting them something. Somewhere back in time, someone (and I’m sure if they were living would want me to state their name; but I can’t… so I won’t) came up with the idea of the couple having a list of gift ideas to be shared with the wedding guests so the gifts they received would be what they needed and wanted. This ‘list‘ was called a ‘Wedding Registry‘.

The ‘Universal Gift Registry’

Over time the Wedding Registry concept was adopted by large department stores where couples could go to the store and make a list of items from that particular store which they would like to receive for their wedding.  Guests then were told about the store Registry and they could go and choose an item to buy off the list ensuring the couple would be happy with their wedding present. While seemingly flawless, this method did have its downfalls as brides and grooms wanted to have a large enough list for guests to browse but often didn’t want to add all their gift choices from one store and subsequently were adding random items just to fill the list. Many times they were gift options that the couple really didn’t want or need. Sometimes couples would make registries at various stores but that too became time consuming for both the couple and their guests.

Enter the ‘Universal Gift Registry‘! A ‘Universal Gift Registry’ allows the couple to make one list of gift wish items. ANY item, from ANY store, ANYWHERE to be shared with their wedding guests! There are no restrictions. Eventastic.com has developed a Universal Gift Registry on their Free Wedding Themed Website that they offer all couples getting married. Couples are able to add any gift ideas to the gift registry section of the event:

  1. Simply create a free account with Eventastic.com
  2. Click to create an event, name your party/event (i.e. Work Wedding Shower), choose a theme (which provides you suggested default cover photos for your invite)
  3. By clicking and adding features in the side menu you create your event and add a gift registry to that event.  They may then
  4. Add any items seen by filling in the item details in the template provided.

So whether at home surfing the net and seeing something you would like as a gift, or out and about, you can easily add as many gifts as you’d like to your wedding gift registry; ensuring they are all gifts that are truly wanted and/or needed.

Eventastic also gives couples the option of having multiple gift registries on their wedding website. Varying gift ideas of varying cost points for wedding showers and other pre-wedding events may be added to different pre-wedding events created on their Eventastic account.

Guests are invited by the couple to go on their wedding website link, view the actual wedding event page with gift registry as well as connected pre-wedding party event pages with gift registries listed and choose an item they wish to purchase.

Eventastic.com recognizes that couples find monetary gifts very helpful and have provided them the option of having a Cash Gifting/Guest Gifting section to their wedding website. The bride and groom are able to tactfully ask for money contributions towards any items they are saving towards whether they be honeymoon, vacations, RRSP’s, home reno’s, child education funds, charity donations etc…

We are very pleased to be able to offer engaged couples the newest technology for weddings and serve their wedding registry needs.
