SMS for Weddings

Using SMS message alerts for weddings is an unconventional and innovative way to ensure the entire event goes off without a hitch (except the hitching that happens between the bride and groom, of course.) Weddings have a lot of moving parts; get organized by using a text message alert system to communicate with guests, vendors, and confirm appointments.


SMS for Wedding Planners

As a wedding planner, you have a lot going on, and not a lot of room for errors. Using a text message alert system helps you confirm appointments, stay organized, get payments on time, and also creates an easy way to refer back to information.

  • Appointment Reminders - send out appointment reminders to the bride and groom or the wedding party when it’s time to visit a venue or meet with the catering company.

  • Payment Reminders - With so much going on, the bride and groom may forget to send in a payment on it’s due date, holding up the entire process. Send an automated payment reminder to ensure that your clients pay vendors, as well as you, on time. 

  • Mobile Payments - make the process quick and easy by accepting mobile payments via text message. 

  • Update Credit Card Information - sometimes, the family of the bride or groom want to chip in and pay for part of the wedding. Quickly update payment information by using a text message alert system. 

  • Send out reminders to the wedding party - remind the wedding party about the rehearsal dinner, hair and makeup, or when to be at the wedding venue. Keep everyone on the same page to keep everything flowing smoothly. 

SMS for Wedding Guests

In addition to the benefits of SMS for wedding planning, SMS marketing can be used to communicate with guests.

  • Digital RSVPS  - waiting on RSVPs can be tiring and stressful. Make the process quick by including information on your invitations on how to RSVPs. 

  • Menus - to accommodate your guests dietary restrictions, send out a text message asking your guests to select from different menu items such as vegan or vegetarian options.

  • Reminders - send out a reminder a month, two weeks, and one week in advance with start time and parking information, and reception location to ensure your guests arrive on time. 

  • Send out wedding registries - guests asking where you’re registered? Send out a text message alert with your registry information. 

  • Thank guests for coming - a text message doesn’t take the place of a thank you card (which you should still definitely send after the wedding) but a quick text the day after the wedding thanking your guests for coming is a nice gesture.

  • Send a link to your digital wedding photo album - share your big day! Send your guests a link to your digital wedding album and ask them to post theirs on social media with your wedding hashtag.

As technology moves forward, so does how we communicate. A text message alert system can help you keep your wedding organized so that you, your guests, and vendors have a stress-free day.
