How to have a wedding online?

Talking about how to conduct a wedding online, it is important to mention that it will turn out to be much more economical, but for everything to go perfectly, the hassle of preparing will be no less.

  • Service for broadcasting. First you need to choose a service or application through which you will communicate with your guests. It can be an online broadcast or a video conference, where all your loved ones who want to witness this event will connect.
  • Choose a broadcast method
  • Marriage registration. If a partial quarantine regime has been introduced in your country, you two can go to the registry office and hold a real ceremony. Your guests will be able to watch everything online. However, if this is not possible, you need to choose an online marriage service where you can enter into your union.
  • Mural in the registry office in an epidemic
  • Inviting guests. You can do this in any way convenient for you. However, the most original and creative will be a video appeal or an online postcard with an invitation to join your holiday. Do not forget to clearly state all the conditions: date, time, link to the account where the broadcast will take place.
  • Online Invitations
  • Wedding images. If you have already purchased and prepared wedding dresses, then you only need to do your own hair and makeup for yourself. Watch the video tutorials and rely on your taste. However, if your images are not ready, you need to show your creativity and imagination. Do not forget that this is a home ceremony. Maybe a “pajama” wedding will be an original and interesting option for you?
