[QUOTE]Wow, like, OMG!! How ever did people plan a wedding before this came along? And, an added plus, you can now bore even more people with every little detail about your wedding no matter where you are even if you don't have your wedding binder. Just pop on the website and there you are! Yes, this is truly a great thing. The world is now a much better place without having to carry that dreaded wedding binder around.

you're not boring the vendors who need you to bring along documents to planning meetings.
you're not boring the people helping you plan the wedding by being able to present your guest list, contracts, etc. at the drop of a hat.
it's not hooked up to Facebook or Twitter. the only social sharing site is Picasa where people can share pictures- and everyone these days shares their wedding photos online with their friends and family. it's far less boring to have someone send you a link in your email than it is for someone to come over and corner you with an album or a slide projector.
You're just a wet blanket. Get over yourself. People have always had ways of boring others with their weddings, kids, pets, etc. The difference with this technology is that no one's the wiser if you decide not to look.
Google is already doing plenty of good with its charity work, Google Books, and by simply making the wbe easier to navigate. I don't see how a web developer is going to cure cancer or solve world hunger, but that doesn't mean that what they do isn't valuable in some way to some people.
