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!
