Studies and Wireframes
To better understand this project and contribute we placed ourselves in the shoes of the targeted demographic, we conducted a virtual user group to associate needs vs wants and to aim for a better user experience.
We worked in conjunction with the MTE team for specs, design feedback and direction on the project’s goals.
Wedding page form
Brides can have their own personal wedding page to let their guests know about their upcoming event.
They simply fill out the form choosing one of 3 layouts for their wedding page.
Each page features: a custom page url name, gallery, RSVP, registry info, venue info, accommodations and directions.
A calendar is featured on the website with a fully customized front end allowing administrators to update events without having to learn code.
Calendar also lists up coming events on the front page of the website.

In order to generate revenue, we decided to go with a commercial directory. The directory is custom designed to fit the needs of CR Wedding. Functionality includes: Registration & login, dashboard, maps and a user review section.
