I was recently the maid of honor in a wedding where the bride and groom used Text My Guests and it was so great that I had to leave a review. All weekend, I just kept thinking about how much I wish this had been around when I planned my own wed...
ding a few years ago! Honestly, the last thing you want to do the day of your wedding is spend time on your phone answering people’s questions about the day’s schedule.
Text My Guests solves all of those problems. As the maid of honor, I received updates throughout the day on my phone, as did the other bridesmaids. The bride and groom set all of the messages up ahead of time, so they were free to focus on what was really important that day. Some of the messages I got were specifically for the bridal party while others were sent to all of the wedding guests. As a result, we never had to question what time we were needed for bridal photos or when the buses were leaving for the chapel.
At one point, the bus that was supposed to transport guests from the church to the reception was running late and a couple dozen guests were standing outside the church unsure of what was going on. Some people were getting ready to call an Uber. The bride and groom were busy inside taking photos, but their wedding planner was able to get in contact with the bus company and then used Text My Guests to send a message to all of the guests that the bus would be arriving in 5 minutes. These are the kinds of logistical hiccups that happen all the time at weddings, and Text My Guests is seriously such a great solution!
One more great bonus that I’m jealous of: all you want to do the day after your wedding is look at photos from your wedding! Text My Guests invited everyone to reply to the messages with photos they took throughout the wedding, so I sent some in from the morning when we were all getting ready and from the reception later that night. The bride raved about how they were able to look through all of their guests' photos while they traveled the next day to their honeymoon location.
If you're hoping to take the stress off the logistics of your wedding day, you can't find a better service than Text My Guests. The bride and groom were really pleased with how it worked for them and all of their guests were talking about how cool it was the next day. I plan to use it if I ever have to plan another big event again, wedding or otherwise!
