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.
