Today’s engaged couples are trying to deliver an unforgettable guest experience when it comes to planning for their wedding. The guest experience becomes even more important the more events you’re hosting, and especially for destination weddings. With more unknowns for the guests (e.g Locations, Start times, dress codes!) there is a greater chance for something going wrong!
Historically couples have relied on printed information. That is, wedding invitations and wedding weekend itineraries to communicate event details to the guests. This process is burdensome on both you and your guests… and costly!!
Within the past 10 years wedding websites have become common place. According to The Knot, 48% of couples displayed some wedding related information via their wedsite in 2016. Like paper information, wedding websites also put a burden on wedding guests. Visiting the website requires guests to remember your domain name, and possibly even a unique password. Or search for your website on their favorite search engine!
With 90% of couples in 2016 using their mobile phone to help them plan their wedding, it’s no surprise that Wedding Apps have become popular. And you guessed it…the traditional Wedding App also puts a burden on your wedding guests. For the guests to get any useful information from you within the app…your guests have to download the app! – Which very few guests do.
Wedding texting with WedTexts helps you create an unforgettable wedding experience for your wedding guests because it is the only form of wedding communication that is effortless for your guests. If they can receive a text message, then they can receive all your scheduled reminders and notifications about your wedding!

David and I were married on April 7, 2017 at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC. We always knew we wanted our wedding to be a whole weekend experience, so we had events spanning over three days. We had a fairly intimate wedding, with only 80 guests, and the majority of them were from out of state or city.
Because we had many events, and because our guests were unfamiliar with the area, we wanted to be able to keep them easily updated with times and addresses. WedTexts was the perfect way to engage with our guests all weekend. I am also very detail oriented, so WedTexts very much appealed to my meticulous nature.
WedTexts ended up being even easier to use than I imagined, and our guests absolutely loved it – we kept hearing how helpful and cool our guests found it! I had all of our texts set up well in advance, so when the weekend began, I didn’t even have to think about it. Additionally, it was super easy to send last minute texts.
At the end of the reception, we had planned for our shuttles to bring our guests downtown to a strip of bars, but hadn’t decided where exactly we would meet. While on the shuttle, David and I chose a bar and sent a text through the WedTexts App – I was so worried that no one would know where to go, but thanks to WedTexts, everyone was there and the fun continued! It was a magical and love filled weekend!
Congrats again Arielle and David!!!!!

Two years ago today I had the good fortune of marrying my best friend! Her love and support mean the world to me, and I hope that I am able to reciprocate a portion of the blessings she has bestowed upon me back to her. Some days I still can’t believe she said yes! Now here we are two years later…how time flies! Kelly — Thank you for going on this crazy ride with me!
For the many of you that don’t know, Kelly and I tested WedTexts at our wedding in New Orleans two years ago today! We were looking for a fast and easy way to communicate with all our out of town wedding guests who were traveling from across the country to attend our destination wedding. We wanted something that was truly effortless for our guests (and yes, we wanted to impress our wedding guests a bit…what engaged couple doesn’t?), but we were not able to find anything that fit the bill. We couldn’t find anything that would send effortless reminders to our wedding guests.
We didn’t want guests to have to hold onto a paper wedding weekend itinerary. We knew our out of town wedding guests wouldn’t download a wedding app. And because we were having a destination wedding, we didn’t want them to have to search for our wedding website, so we decided to come up with our own solution.
Kelly recommended we send all our wedding guests scheduled text notifications through out the weekend to remind them of where our events were taking place, and when they should be there. It was perfect for making sure our groomsmen knew when to be at our rehearsal, and it was effortless for communicating all our wedding event details with our wedding guests. Also, any address we included in the text message became a clickable link for our wedding guests to get to each venue!
After getting countless compliments from our wedding guests on the “texting service” and 3 of our friends who were engaged asking us if they could use it, we decided to turn it into a business! A few months later we officially launched WedTexts, and now it is the only way to effortlessly communicate with your wedding guests for helpful reminders. WedTexts has been used by engaged couples and wedding planners across the country and is continuing to grow.
Recently we made WedTexts even easier by coming out with a WedTexts Blueprint. With the Blueprint, couples tell us the details surrounding their wedding events, and WedTexts creates their helpful text reminders for them!
WedTexts is great to remind guests of events such as your engagement party, setting the deadline for RSVPs, hotel room block reminders, or any other event related to your wedding.
If your guests can receive a text message, then they will be kept in the loop with WedTexts.
Happy anniversary to Kelly! And congrats to all the couples getting married out there. We hope that you will use WedTexts to easily communicate with your wedding guests…your guests will thank you!
WedTexts is an easy way to personalize your wedding. It is great for destination weddings (or weddings with out of town wedding guests). Deliver your unforgettable wedding guests experience by creating your account at www.wedtexts.com.

Are you worried about your wedding guests knowing how to get to your wedding ceremony? The rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, or any other event related to your wedding? Luckily for you (if your guests have a smart phone) any address or time that is included in a WedTexts text reminder turns into a clickable link! This way the logistics of all your wedding events are always at your guests’ fingertips.
So do everyone a favor and add scheduling your WedTexts text reminders to your wedding planning checklist. After you pre-schedule all your guests’ helpful reminders (which can be days or weeks in advance), cross this off your wedding checklist! Then sit back and relax knowing your guests will be well informed without having to download any wedding app or requiring them to hold on to any paper information!
