Sharing your important wedding information, especially your wedding weekend itinerary, can be a challenge. Most guests don’t remember your wedding website, and guests don’t download wedding apps. That is why couples across the country are relying on WedTexts to deliver their wedding weekend itinerary digitally and effortlessly to their guests’ cell phones via prescheduled text messages!
This post is about how to get your wedding guest list from your Knot website to your WedTexts account. Once your WedTexts guest list is in order, you can create whatever groups you want (bridesmaids, groomsmen, family, etc…) and schedule all your helpful reminders to be sent to your wedding guests when they need them most.
While you’re at it, be sure to add completing your WedTexts Blueprint to your wedding planning timeline! With your WedTexts Blueprint, you tell us the details of your wedding events (rehearsal, last day to RSVP, welcome party, the wedding ceremony, the wedding reception, etc…), and we create your helpful text reminders to send to your wedding guests. Don’t worry, we give you the opportunity to edit each message as you see fit!
So let’s get started. It is very easy to get your guest list from your Knot website to your WedTexts account.
Click “Export” in the top right hand corner while on your Guest List page.
You should see your guest list being downloaded onto your computer.
Open your downloaded guest list.
Edit your wedding guest list spreadsheet in excel, so it can easily be uploaded to your WedTexts account.
To do this – make sure you have 3 columns:
The first column needs to have the title – “first_name”
The second column needs to have the title – “last_name”
The third column needs to have the title – “phone”
Once your columns have the correct headers, save your file as a .csv file. See the example below.
*** It is very important to make sure your columns are in the correct format. If they are not in the correct format, your .csv file will not be uploaded.
Upload your wedding guest list to WedTexts. On the Add New Guest Page of your WedTexts account, select “Upload .CSV file”.
Confirm your upload to WedTexts! Within a few seconds you will see your wedding guests list updated on the left hand side of the screen of your WedTexts account. Once this is complete, add your guests to their groups, schedule your messages, and enjoy your stress free wedding!
You will notice that any guest that hasn’t provided their cell phone number will not be uploaded to your WedTexts account. Most WedTexts couples end up adding 70-80% of their wedding guest list to their WedTexts account. The important thing is to include all the guests you think may like receiving your helpful text reminders. It is more important to add your high school and college friends, and less important to add all your parent’s friends.
Share your wedding weekend itinerary effortlessly with your wedding guests with WedTexts. It not only makes communication more efficient…it also reduces your wedding planning stress, and wedding guests love it!
