Boot Camp feature for Monday, October 12, 1998

Planning to tie the knot? Get help on the web. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. When it comes to planning a wedding, who doesn't need a helping hand? If you've set the date, or even if you haven't yet, check out theknot.com.

"The Knot has everything from wedding articles to etiquette Q&A, we answer users' questions everyday. We have a huge bridal gown data base, we have an online gift registry where you can register for and guests can come and purchase gifts. We have honeymoon information, we have personal wedding pages, any number of things to service today's bride and groom."

The Knot editor in chief Carley Roney. It's all free to use, including those personal wedding web pages.

"The bride and groom can come in and create a personal wedding web page. It's a free service that we provide where you can have the details of your wedding and you can have a link to your gift registry. It makes it very easy for guests to come in, find exactly what you want on The Knot, and be able to make a purchase either online or by 800 number, anytime day or night, to get you those gifts that you really want."

Roney says it's the right service for the right generation...

"Today's brides and grooms are largely online, which is what makes The Knot such a popular service."
