Last week we were tagged in a Facebook post by a friend in regards to a New York Times article.  The article was about a couple’s wedding in New York.  Stephanie and Matthew were all set to get married in Manhattan on January 23rd.  This was the same time the blizzard (Winter Storm Jonas) was hitting the East Coast.  New York State imposed a travel ban for part of the weekend, and their wedding event space (Battery Gardens) offered to reschedule their wedding for the following day, Sunday the 24th. (full article here – http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/31/fashion/weddings/blizzard-weddings-nyc.html?_r=0)

With all the planning and preparation that went into their wedding day, Stephanie and Matthew decided to move forward as planned.  “So they sent a text message to their 186 would-be guests: ‘Wedding still on! Please come if you can.'”

Here at WedTexts, we think logistical communication for  your wedding should be a easy and stressless!  When things go as planned, you can pre-schedule your WedTexts’ messages.  Once scheduled, we deliver your messages to all of your guests (or groups of guests) at the exact time you want us to.  And when things don’t go as planned, you can send real time updates letting your guests know the new plan!  WedTexts is effortless for your guests, because they get the information they need right on their cell phones.  All of this is why there is no easier way to WOW your wedding guests!

Unfortunately these wedding emergencies happen all the time.  We all have heard about blizzards, floods, fires, hurricanes and many other unforeseen and unwanted occurrences altering wedding plans.  A few months ago WedTexts was honored to be a part of couple’s wedding in Columbia, SC.  Due to a flood they had to re-plan their entire wedding in 2 days!  WedTexts allowed them to easily update all their guests of the new event details with scheduled mass text messages.  To see how they did it, here is the post written by the bride! http://blog.wedtexts.com/once-in-a-thousand-years/.
