The beautiful invitations from Minted.com (affiliate link) had finally come in. After stuffing the envelopes for 3 hours, and spending another $70 on stamps Kendall thought of how much money future brides could save with WedTexts.
She was very pleased with the print RSVP cards, but nervous about how many she was going to get back in the mail (and when). She had heard from a friend who recently got married that she had to call/text over 50 people to see if they were coming because they didn’t RSVP!
Part of her wished she would have simply created an online RSVP form on Google Forms, and sent a WedTexts reminder to her guests a few days after she mailed the invitations asking them to RSVP via the link. This would have saved her and Matthias a lot of time and money…
Before going to sleep that night Kendall confirmed with her stylist and makeup artist about the dry run the following Saturday. (Link to them here)
The next day she followed up with the hotels to see who had booked their rooms. For everyone else that still hadn’t booked their rooms she scheduled a WedTexts to remind them of the hotel room block cutoff date.
This message was sent on August 24th –
“Friendly reminder! The hotel room blocks end on September 1st. Please remember to book your hotel before then. For more information, visit our wedding website – kendallandmatthiasaregettingmarried.com. Love Kendall & Matthias”
