Lauren Lane (@laurenlane1984)

When Lauren Lane’s plans to wed Daniel Welch were threatened by the collapse of the British events company organizing her big day, she turned to Twitter for help: “Please RT to help our story! £4.5k stolen with 6 weeks to go - need a little help from our twitter friends.”

Lane’s online appeal worked, as even two celebrities retweeted it. Companies offered Lane and Welch free or discounted services for the wedding, which occurred Feb. 25. “”It just goes to show the power of Twitter,” Lane said. “As soon as I posted my message on the website everything just went crazy.”

The downside of her sudden Twitter fame: Media coverage that Lane felt made the couple look like moochers. “Can’t believe the story on the mail online! £10k in donations? We didn’t get any money! Will be having words in the am!”
