An Easier Way of Managing Pre-Wedding Party Ticket Sales

Pre-wedding Parties Made Easier with Eventastic

While called various names depending on what country you reside, pre-wedding parties that are planned to raise money for the bride and groom have been organized for many years by bridesmaids and groomsmen. Raising money to help the couple in whatever aspect they choose to apply it is a long standing tradition for many and it just got a whole lot easier to plan and execute such parties!

With the best of intentions in planning a pre-wedding fundraiser for a couple getting married, selling the tickets for such an event in the past has been a cumbersome task for those involved. Normally the wedding party would coordinate and incur costs of tickets being printed and then have to distribute stacks of them to everyone in the hopes that they would go and sell to friends, family, acquaintances and collect the monies. Everyone knows that with our busy schedules these days, simplifying processes like pre-wedding party ticket sales can only be welcomed with open arms.

Eventastic  is a free website with multiple features allowing you to create events using many innovative tools provided. You simply ‘Sign In’, click ‘Create an Event’, choose a themed category, fill in basic details of name of event, date, description and then choose items you wish to add to your event such as ticketing/registration, photos, video, guest funding, social media links etc. Once you add all the features you need on your event page, simply share your custom event page link found within the details section in edit mode and share through email, social media channels etc. as you choose.  It’s ready and waiting at your fingertips!

If you are considering coordinating a pre-wedding party like a Stag’N Doe where ticketing is involved, then take this opportunity to use this online ticketing and registration platform making the process of selling and buying tickets easy for everyone!

Sell more tickets, raising more money and do it stress-free!

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.
