Depends on how far you want to go. I might be tempted to punt and just
use one of the web-based services (e.g. www.wednet.com,
www.weddingplanningwiz.com, etc) that are already out there, but if
you're in the mood to scratch an itch...

Other options would be:

      * Building essentially from scratch in bricolage (offers a nice
        development environment, comparable to zope, but with more
        emphasis on content management features comparable to commercial
        products like Vignette).
      * Augmenting an existing meeting scheduler (a Wedding is really
        just a big meeting ;-)
      * Building the whole thing around email rather than the web.

Whatever you end up doing, good luck!
