TORONTO (Reuters) - Planning a wedding? A new web app lets the bride and groom-to-be create a social website that connects guests with each other before the big day.

Called Weduary, the web app provides a simple way of creating a modern-looking wedding website, and allows the couple to invite guests using Facebook.

The site tells guests which of their Facebook friends will also be attending and points out people at the event who may have common interests and mutual friends.

If a guest is attending alone, the Flirt section of the site shows other singles who will be there.

"We're giving people a cheat sheet on who to meet at these big wedding events," said Brit Morin, CEO of Brit & Co., the digital lifestyle brand behind Weduary.

In addition to connecting guests, the site provides details about the date and time of the wedding, hotel information, and a link to the couple's registry.

Each guest also gets their own profile.

"It says which hotel they're staying at, when they are arriving to the event, their favorite story of the bride and groom and what their cell phone is," she explained.   Continued...
