CalUp For The Lead-up To Your Wedding: Engagement Parties & More
Unlock the full potential of CalUp in the lead-up to your Wedding. Learn how to use it for bach parties, engagement parties and more.
Many assume that CalUp is a tool for day-before and day-of wedding coordination, but two pieces of good news might have you thinking of CalUp for so much more. Firstly, your CalUp subscription extends for an entire year, and second, Calup is a versatile tool that can be used in the lead-up to your wedding for a variety of events and activities.
So, if you purchase CalUp in the months prior to your wedding, you can get familiar with the tool, and use CalUp for all matter of lead-up events and activities. Here are just a few examples of other events you can use CalUp for:
Events that You Can Use Calup for as Part of Your Subscription
CalUp can be used to create an interactive private social space for your engagement party. You can use CalUp to share the details of your party quickly and easily, but you can go further and encourage guests to share photos, group chat and direct message each other. More communication equals more excitement for your wedding day.
For Bach Parties, CalUp can be used to create separate private social spaces for participants. The interactive communication is limited to the invitees of the specific party, so, for example, chats and photos shared amongst Bachelorette Party invitees are shared only with those invitees. The same would be true for the Bachelor party. Of course the CalUp admin, which is typically either you as the couple, or your planner, has full viewing and event & photo management permissions.
"Wedding Preview" Virtual Event
Before the big day, you can send your guests a virtual Wedding Preview event using CalUp, where you can share your engagement video, showcasing your love story and sharing the details for your wedding day, including a link to your wedding website.
"Share Your Photos" Virtual Event
CalUp can also be used to create a "Share Your Photos of the Bride and Groom" event, where guests are prompted to upload pictures of the two partners in earlier days. This way, you can create a beautiful collection of memories for the couple to cherish, which can also be used to create a slideshow during the wedding reception.
Virtual Photo Booth
Prompt guests to share photos of themselves in the lead up to your wedding. They can upload a photo and add a caption to share with you and all the guests invites. This is a great way to create anticipation and excitement around bringing your friends and family (some who have not seen each other in years) back together to celebrate your special day.
Ultimately, CalUp is a tool to which you can apply your own creativity to help get your guests engaged and connected in the lead-up to your wedding. If you're interested in using CalUp for your wedding, you can access a free 30 day trial. On your trial, you'll be able to build your wedding itinerary with our easy to use Auto Create tool, and preview what your wedding will look like on the CalUp mobile app!
