A new wedding organisation platform called Joy has just secured $4.5m in seed funding.
The website and mobile app helps engaged couples share information about their wedding day all from one place, with options to display the wedding schedule, save RSVPs and even post photos from the special day.
And according to TechCrunch, the platform has just secured seed funding of $4.5m, which was led by investment firms Matrix Partners and Sierra Ventures.
Other contributors to the round include Muse lead singer Matt Bellamy, Joe Montana and former TechCrunch co-Editor-in-chief Alexia Tsotsis, as well as VC firms Fuel Capital and Liquid 2 Ventures.
With Joy, couples can create a wedding website quickly and easily, choose their wedding colours and fonts and even add photos to give a more personal touch.
Couples can also send custom notifications to their guests to keep them in the loop about any changes to the day.
Guests can also be update on Android and iOS with Joy’s mobile app, which integrates push notifications for couples to let guests know about the day.
The platform also has photo-sharing capabilities, options to display a full wedding schedule and even save RSVPs.
Guests can also virtually meet on Joy – a feature designed to tackle the awkward on-the-day introductions that many wedding-goers experience.
TechCrunch also reports that co-founder Vishal Joshi is looking to tackle the problems such platforms have with managing guest lists.
Joy has seen strong growth since its launch, its founders saying it currently assists around 150 weddings per day – a figure that sat at 150 per month just four months ago.
