Send an Invitation via Text on Mobile Web

Modified on Wed, 16 Nov 2022 at 01:33 PM

Do you want to send your invitation via text on our mobile web site?


The steps are super easy and simple to do! After you fill in your event information and select "Add Guests" in the bottom right hand corner of the first step, you will be taken to our Add Guest step.


If you already added guests' phone numbers into your Evite Contacts, they will show here.


If you have not added any in your Evite Contacts, we have provided 2 ways to add your guests' numbers:


1) You may add a New Contact using "+ Add a New Contact" in green on the Add Guest step.

2) You may download either our Android or iOS Evite apps, which will pull your guest phone numbers, straight from your cell phone contacts! We definitely prefer this method as you will not have to manually add each new contact, and make your party planning faster and easier!


Please note, the green text message symbol in the top left hand corner in the below image represents sharing a link with your guests, and not SMS Text message. That is another option of sharing with guests, but less personalized. An SMS will be more specific to that guest, and personalized with their name. If you decide to share with the green bubble message, the invitation link is simply copied and pasted for you to share on various social platforms.


To send via SMS Text, you will select the checkboxes next to the guests you would like to add. You can also search for Contacts at the top, or select any letters from the sidebar, as the Contacts are in alphabetical order.

If your guest has both an email and phone number, it will default to email, and you can select "Edit" in blue and change it to their phone number.


After you select your guests and see the checkmarks next to your desired guests, you will select the "Send" button in the upper right hand corner, which will also show you total of guests you will add. Selecting the "Send" button will send your guests the invitation immediately, and guests that have a number with their name will receive a text message!
