ATLANTA, Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- GetMarried.com, a national multi-media wedding planning and lifestyle resource, and RecreateMyNight.com, a popular social media sharing technology platform, today announced Party On!™, a feature that enables couples to document, live and relive their weddings—or any memorable event—online, in an amazingly simple, dynamic and interactive way.  

The RecreateMyNight.com technology, used by Get Married for Party On!™, integrates with multiple social media sites to find photos and videos that have been captured and uploaded by guests of an event, then streams them all to a single Party On!™ page on GetMarried.com.  

From weddings, engagement parties and bridal showers to bachelor and bachelorette parties, Party On!™ users will have the convenience of having all photos, video,  comments and status updates from anyone attending their event, gathered automatically in one place, eliminating the frustration of having to manually surf multiple online sources to find memorable moments.  Users can keep Party On!™ private, or share their experiences with the whole world, with options to save and keep albums, stationery, and memory books—all for free.

"We have a highly engaged audience on GetMarried.com that is also extremely active through social media.  As part of our mission to provide innovative solutions that enhance the wedding planning experience, Get Married's Party On!™ is an exciting and natural fit for brides and their friends to document experiences through this exceptional use of social media," said Stacie Francombe, founder and editor-in-chief of Get Married Media. "We are thrilled to bring Party On!™ to our fans and revelers across the globe so they can be a part of the Get Married in Times Square celebration—even from their own homes—as well as share their own memorable events."  

"Get Married Media can now offer a much needed tool to brides and grooms with RecreateMyNight.com technology to seamlessly relive their wedding experience forever,"  explained RecreateMyNight.com's President, Tejpaul Bhatia. "We are also very excited to enter the wedding market with Get Married Media, especially in connection with their historic wedding celebration in Times Square on New Year's Eve."

This New Year's Eve, Get Married will document the first-ever official Times Square New Year's Eve Wedding using PartyOn!™  With nearly 2,000 submissions from couples across the country, Get Married's team, in partnership with Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment—the producers of the world famous New Year's Eve celebration—selected Bethany Philips and Geoffrey Dubie, Marine Corps reservists who met in Iraq, to have their "I Do's" witnessed by 1 million people live in Times Square.

During the launch of Party On!™, GetMarried.com invites users from around the world to easily "check in" prior to December 31, 2010 and pre-register to participate online in the Get Married in Times Square wedding celebration.
