Guide To Throw A Virtual Wedding
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL WEDDING?.
We are sure that some of you already know what a virtual wedding is, but for those of you who do not know, we will explain! Essentially, a virtual wedding simply means that you perform your wedding ceremony online. At a virtual wedding, the presenter, couple and guests come together by video call. So, if all the restrictions get in the way of your future wedding plans, you should definitely read this guide!
CHOOSE A PLATFORM FOR VIDEO CALLS..
If you have decided that you do not want to wait until all restrictions are relaxed and your wedding is virtual, then read on! We’ve compiled this guide, so I hope it saves you the hassle of designing it. First, select the platform you want to use to connect to everyone through a video call. Think of platforms like Zoom and Facebook Live.
There are so many platforms you can use, but to help you narrow down your choices, we’ll tell you about Zoom and Facebook Live. At the moment, Zoom is the most used platform for video calls and conferences! It allows you to spend your wedding live with all the guests present. Zoom has small costs for chats with lots of people and no time limit, so be prepared to pay a small amount.
WITH FACEBOOK LIVE..
It’s a great scaling alternative that’s completely free! All you need to do is create a private group to which you will also add all your guests. Then create a private event where you can start your live wedding on Facebook. It’s definitely a super easy and affordable option!
INVITE YOUR VIRTUAL GUESTS..
Once you’ve chosen your platform, you’ll want to invite your guests to a virtual wedding! If you still want to send an official invitation, we recommend that you use an email. Otherwise, you can send an email or an individual message to Facebook at any time. Be sure to specify the usual details, such as the date and time of the wedding! Most importantly, don’t forget to add a section that explains which platform you are using for your virtual wedding and how to access it.
DO A TEST RUN..
Don’t forget! You should definitely find the time for a trial run! While technology will be your savior for a virtual ceremony, technology is not always reliable. Check what your background looks like on the video. Make sure you have a stable internet connection and a working camera and microphone. Also make sure that all your guests know how to access the virtual ceremony and that their inputs/pins/passwords are organized in advance.
