Live Streaming Your Wedding During the Pandemic
Planning a wedding is so much fun! Until it just isn’t. Every time you check something off your list, you think of three things to add. You’re tired of doing research and making phone calls. You can hardly bring yourself to open Pinterest these days. And you’re starting to wonder exactly how mad your family would be if you just eloped.
All of this is made even more challenging right now due to the pandemic. Thankfully, with some help from technology and a bit of creativity, you can still say “I do” in a fun, safe and memorable way.
At Mike Staff Productions, we’ve built our whole business around reclaiming the fun in your wedding planning. We recently spoke to Blue Nile the world’s leading online retailer of diamond engagement rings, to share our best tips for using technology to enhance your wedding.
Live Stream Your Wedding
Social distancing, travel restrictions and meeting the recommended safety requirements have forced many couples to drastically change their wedding plans by reducing the amount of friends and family they can invite.
For example, you may be forced to leave your grandparents off your guest list all in the name of safety. Decisions like that can weigh heavy on a couples heart. But thanks to technology, we can bring the wedding directly to your loved ones at home via live streaming services.
Our wedding videography team uses advanced video and live streaming equipment to broadcast weddings for all of your loved ones to see from the comfort of their own home. So, even though your close group of work buddies couldn’t be at your ceremony, they can still see you walking down the aisle, hear you reciting your vows and watch you officially become married.
One of our recent brides Anna shared her experience. “All of the stress of planning and replanning didn’t go completely wasted because our friends and family were still able to watch it. Live streaming our ceremony worked out so well for us during a very chaotic time. Having the live stream allows us to be able to go back and watch our wedding anytime we want.”
Don’t Forget to Prep Your Guests
When choosing to livestream your wedding, you’ll need to prepare your virtual wedding guests. Mike Staff Productions offers a custom webpage for your wedding. This acts as the ‘home base’ for your wedding live stream.
Prior to your wedding day, you’ll need to share the link with your friends and family. Couples usually choose to include it on their invitation, wedding website, ‘Change The Date’ cards, or even their social media profiles. We recommend sharing your livestream link early, so your guests can easily find your livestream on your wedding day with no difficulties.
