Top Ten Reviews’ Jessica Foust highlights the best party planning websites that will help you with everything from invitations to the after-party.
Party Planning Services:
When choosing a party planning site you need to make sure that all your needs are covered. The best services will allow you to print invitations as well as send digital invitations. If your event requires tickets make sure your service can produce them for you. You may need help finding a vendor or catering. These sites can help you do all that and more.
TopTenREVIEWS has rated and ranked the best party planning software products based on services offered, tools, extras, and community. After reviewing the software, TopTenREVIEWS recommends the following as the top three Party Planning Services:
MyPunchbowl is the leader in the creative world of online party planning services. From online invitation customization to guest polling. MyPunchbowl sets the bar high for what customers will come to expect from party planning sites now and into the future.
MyPunchbowl has included tools that have been neglected by the competition. For example guest polling. If you are unsure which date to choose for the party you can ask your guests. This clever feature pioneered by MyPunchbowl is sure to be a staple in party planning sites of the future.
This service also has tools that cater to the “After Party.” This feature lets your guests log back in and communicate with each other and upload photos and video from your party. You can create an official “After Party” message board. You can even send out new invites to keep them up-to-date on all the action after the event is over.
