Streaming Weddings Online

June 6, 2013 in Daily Bulletin

Seunghee Suh reports on the increasing number of couples who live-stream their weddings online:

  • The media coverage of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding inspired couples to broadcast their big day to a bigger audience.
  • Websites such as I Do Stream and My Streaming Wedding allow virtual guests to type in login information and then watch the big event.
  • Prices range from $200 for the “do-it-yourself” package to $3,000 if the couple wants to use highly trained videographers with experience in live broadcasting.
  • Etiquette experts suggest that weddings gifts should be sent to couples, even if guests only receive an online invitation to the event.
  • Some online guests report dressing up in fancy attire before watching the live stream to really get into the spirit of things.
