Virtual Wedding Planning Guide
While we are all dealing with the impact of the pandemic, many couples are having to make alternate wedding plans. Some couples choose to push back their wedding to a later date. Other couples choose to push through with an intimate gathering. And there are couples who opt for a modern solution: a virtual wedding.
Though nothing beats having your loved ones in actual attendance, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a fantastic wedding day. With today’s technology, a live stream wedding will enable your family and friends from near and far to partake in your wedding celebration.
Many different events have turned into Zoom parties. Some smaller events have easily put together their DIY online party, while bigger or more elaborate celebrations like weddings have turned to the experts. Just like in-real life weddings, virtual weddings take a lot of organization to pull off.
Here’s an easy-to-follow guide to get you started on your virtual wedding planning:
Decide on your wedding date
Whether keeping your original wedding date or setting a new one, your decision will be the basis of other elements of your wedding. Because of the many changes brought about by the coronavirus situation, careful consideration on your wedding date is essential. Especially when rebooking, factor the availability of your most important guests, your vendors, and your chosen venue.
Pick a wedding style or theme
Due to transitioning to a virtual wedding, some of you may need to pick a completely new wedding style to best suit the new setup, or maybe just because you want to save your already chosen theme when you have your in-real life wedding ceremony in the future. But as always, personalize your wedding style to share your vision. Your defined style or theme is what your invitations, outfits, flowers, decors, and entertainment will follow.
Work with virtual wedding vendors
This digital option may be less elaborate than traditional weddings but working with professional wedding vendors comes with a lot of benefits. From planning to making it happen, you can count on the experts for an incredible event. Also, your vendors will be able to help you make informed decisions as you move forward.
While you may have to forgo your venue, caterers for big groups, and other elements for a traditional wedding, some vendors can still come into play. A wedding photographer can be present to capture your moments while physical distancing. A professional MC to host your program and engage your online attendees. A virtual DJ or live steam wedding singers for some wonderful entertainment.
Choose your live stream wedding platform
Online platforms are your new wedding venues. Zoom has become one of the go-to streaming services for many events, and it has also pulled ahead in weddings. Google Hangouts, Skype, and FaceTime can do as well. Live stream wedding on social media like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for better reach.
