Twitter Wedding: Social Media Plea Saves UK Couple's Big Day (VIDEO)

When UK couple Lauren Lane and Daniel Welch found out that their wedding venue had closed permanently just six weeks before their February wedding -- taking their deposit of about $7,000 with them -- they were devastated.

The bride-to-be reached out to the Twitterverse, desperate for help. She tweeted: "Help needed with aspects of our wedding after venue goes bust with 6 weeks 2 go & with our £4.5k!"

She received an overwhelming response: Twitterers donated everything from jewelry to a wedding cake to a new event planner. On Tuesday, the newlyweds shared a video of their Twitter-sourced wedding, via Twitter, of course.

The bride told The Guardian that she was surprised that her "dream wedding" came true as a result of her tweet. "I had gone on Twitter on the off-chance that someone might be able to help us but it just went mad," she said. "It was a lovely wedding and I cannot believe how many people and businesses came forward to help us -- it was amazing."
