Don’t Want to Invite People to Your Wedding? Live Stream it Instead
Anyone who has ever planned a wedding knows that tallying up RSVPs and coordinating seating arrangements is the last thing you want to do when gearing up for the big day. Couples are on edge during the final months of their road to eternal bliss. Arguing, I mean “compromising”, over these details can turn any blushing bride into a bridezilla.
One alternative to sending out invites and coordinating travel arrangements is to simply allow friends and family to enjoy the exchange of nuptials from their couch. Save on dinner plates and headaches by broadcasting your wedding over the Internet.
Although this idea isn’t traditional, it’s an option that many people are happily embracing. One popular video streaming service revealed that wedding live streams are up 250 percent in one year.
According to Mashable,
“From May 2012 to May 2013, nearly 20,000 wedding broadcasts were streamed on Ustream, up from 7,800 from the same period the year before.”
Ustream works with Skype, I Do Stream and HangWith to provide broadcasting options. The footage can be captured with smartphones or webcams for free.
The trend of live streaming weddings is quickly spreading to other countries. The United States hosts the most live streams followed by India, England, Australia and Canada.
So if you want to make the most memorable day of your life pleasant, think about live streaming your wedding.
