It might be hard to believe that a simple text messaging service can do all of that, but it’s true.

However, we don’t want to tell you about how amazing WedTexts is – that means close to nothing coming from us.

The best way we can think of to show you what an integral part of your wedding WedTexts can be is to let the customers tell you.

That’s right… real people, from real weddings, using WedTexts and giving you their honest opinions.

The story below is from Blaire Lindsey, who, as you’ll soon find out, used WedTexts to help her replan her entire wedding in just 2 short days!

Real Wedding Story From Couples Who Used WedTexts

My husband and I were married on October 3rd, 2015.

If you watched the news at all during that time, you’ll soon realize that was also the weekend of the 1,000-year flood that devastated a large part of the state of South Carolina. And yes, that is where we got married.

The backstory

In my mind, I knew exactly what I wanted: something outdoors, off of the river, magical lights, and beautiful music.

As you know, all of these things are wonderful and beautiful in your mind, but it is not something that is easily planned. It is extremely hard to keep all of the information organized, but I hit the ground running and found a location for our ceremony.

We found the perfect spot by the Congaree River on my husband’s parents’ property. It truly was a magical location.

His father built an arbor, we had trees cut for our aisle runners, and of course, those wonderful signs made with all of the cute sayings that make weddings special and memorable.

A lot of work and effort put in by all.

If you are one of those brides planning an outdoor wedding, then you will be able to relate to what I am about to say.

Outdoor weddings come with risks

Every bride with an outdoor wedding begins checking the weather a month prior, in hopes she will get an early and accurate reading from the weatherman. She will continue to do so every day, multiple times a day, until the day of the wedding.

I went through every emotional stage possible and it made for an extremely long month when the forecast was not in my favor. Up and down, up and down.

Finally one week away…

I knew this was going to finally be my week to see that beautiful October weather.

Please don’t make us replan our outdoor wedding

The Sunday before the wedding predicted a high of 75, low of 60 and only 10 percent chance of rain. That forecast quickly changed and every day it got higher and higher until finally, on Thursday, it said 100%.

This was not just any 100% chance of rainfall.

This was literally a hurricane that just so happened to be spewing water over the one spot that I had said my prayers about for months.

Not one or two inches of rain – more like 12 to 24 inches.

At that point, all I could do was cry!

I was devastated and knew we were going to have to change the location of the ceremony.

Unfortunately, we were going to have to replan our outdoor wedding

When my fiance called to tell me we had to, I kept saying NO, NO, NO! I did not know how to accept this and I did not know how it would be possible to contact ALL of those people in such a short amount of time.

WEDTEXTS, that’s how!

WedTexts literally saved us on our wedding weekend.

Not only did we have a new ceremony location, but also a new reception location, and a new rehearsal location. We essentially had to plan an entirely new wedding in two short days!  

We also had people coming from all over…There was no way I could even fathom doing all of that and calling all of those people. Especially while my heart was breaking over all of the major changes in my wedding.

My original ceremony location was literally flooded!

WedTexts was so convenient – my fiance and I were able to add all of our contacts through our phone and send out the news in one simple step.

I could not believe how easy it was to use.

All of our guests thought it was the coolest thing, too.

The best part was that we could also easily make and manage groups. I had a group for the rehearsal so that message would just go to them, a group for the entire wedding, and a group for the brunch we had the next day.

I don’t know what I would have done without it.

All of the information is easily organized and I have my list in one place. Because of this, I continued on with my wedding and we had a beautiful day and time together.

We never missed a step

All of the guests were so kind and we danced the night away after becoming Mr. and Mrs. Lindsey.

The rain made for some magical pictures, and after all, this only happens once in a thousand years. Lucky me!

I highly recommend every couple use WedTexts!
