As more and more of the millennial generation ties the knot, weddings are moving to the Web.

With Web sites like ewedding.com and theknot.com, future brides and grooms let their friends and families know how the couple met, who proposed and how happy they are to be together.

Not only are these sites a good way to keep guests updated on every last detail of the wedding - including "Oh, we got the perfect cake" and "My dress is stunning" - but the engaged couple can also let everyone know where to get them wedding presents with an online gift registry list.

The sites are easy to use with predesigned templates. All the bride or groom has to do is pick one, upload pictures and type up their information.

But Web site services aren't the only ones offered. At theknot.com, the wedding party can use tools like a wedding checklist, wedding budgeter and guest list tracker. The site also offers a wedding countdown, so the happy couple can let everyone know how many days, hours and minutes are left before they're souls are united as one. Beautiful.

In an age where one can do just about anything on a computer - from matchmaking to cybersex, chat-room dating to wedding planning - weddings are just one small step down the cyber aisle.
