How To Live Stream Your Wedding

Lately we have been getting a lot of questions about live streaming a wedding and I totally get it! You want all of your closest family and friends to be able to witness you saying 'I do,' but trying to wrap your mind around the tech can be completely daunting. Am I right?

Before we dive into all the super fun tech, let's talk about WHY you may want to consider live streaming your wedding.

1. You're Having A Small Wedding

Maybe your not keen on having a big wedding, but still want your friends and family to feel included in the day. Why not invite them to celebrate with you 'virtually?' That way you can keep you wedding 'intimate,' while still including all the people who care about you!

2. You're Having A Destination Wedding

It's no secret that destination weddings will limit your guest count and there will always be those guests who either can't afford to travel or can't get off work. Just because they can't attend, doesn't mean they can watch from the comfort of their own home!

3. Important People Can't Make The Trek

As much as I hate to say this, there is almost always at least one important person who can't make it to your wedding. Maybe grandma is getting older and isn't able travel to your wedding, or maybe your BFF just had a baby and can't leave him/her at home. Once again, let them watch virtually!

Okay, now that we've established WHY you may want to live stream your wedding, how in the world do you go about it?

If you go this route, just be sure they give you specific details as to how guests will be able to view the video. Also be sure to ask if you need to have someone available to be on 'tech' support for your guests who are not present.
