For Joni Wedding GmbH, specialists in the field of wedding planning, dotSource developed a service platform in 2010 which supports couples with free services for preparing their weddings.
HochzeitsPlaza.de gave rise to a lively and user-friendly social commerce platform for prospective bridal couples which combines various facets in a closed system. These include an extensive editorial area, a wedding shop, a community area, a forum and a suppliers’ directory covering the whole of Germany.
The specific demands of such a multi-faceted social commerce platform were ideally implemented by dotSource through a combination of Magento 1 Community Edition standard functions and individual system adaptations. Our team developed the essential components that make planning a wedding simpler. Bridal couples have access, among other things, to interactive planning tools, deadline and budget calculators, templates for guest lists and table plans.
In particular dotSource created real added value by realising the community, which integrates users to the extent that they can, for example, comment on, evaluate or recommend articles, photos or locations. The HochzeitsPlaza.de community is now one of the largest wedding communities in the German-speaking world. The wedding shop implemented by dotSource consists of over 2,000 articles and, among other things, provides personalised guest gifts and bridal accessories.
