Handling all of your wedding planning can be very easy if you decide to use SMS texting for all of your communication needs.
Like it or not, weddings are some of the most expensive events to ever happen in someone’s life. While weddings are undoubtedly worth every penny, people cannot deny the upfront cost of a wedding - in fact, the average cost of a wedding in 2020 alone cost around $30,000. And while some costs can be avoided all together, you can actually cut down on your expenses by adjusting some of your wedding expenses.
One of the best ways you can save money for your wedding is by sending all of your invites online instead of physically. There are so many free resources and websites nowadays that allow you to create beautiful online Evites. These Evites handle all logistical information while taking care of RSVP information. Therefore, you do not need to wait for people to send back their letters through the mail to hear if they are coming to your wedding. Instead, all they have to do is respond via the Evite.
After creating your Evite, we highly recommend reminding your audience about your wedding via text message. Why text message compared to other forms of communication? It’s because the reality is, text messages have a 97% open rate compared to other forms of communication like emails. Everyone is using their cell phones nowadays, and you can be rest assured that people will see your invite if you send it over text.
Furthermore, you can guarantee high rates of response because of two reasons: SMS texting allows you to include hyperlinks to any external website. Therefore, you can just include the link in every text message so that your contacts do not need to search for your link manually later. Secondly, you need to be using SMS texting for your wedding planning because of our advanced automation features.
