While large gatherings have been put on hold for the time being, many couples have turned to online weddings to say their “I do’s”.

Here are a few ideas to help you have the best online wedding and still make it special for you and your guests.

the best way to have your online wedding

Do Some Decorating

Whether you’re having your online wedding in the outdoors, your backyard or even in your living room, don’t forget the decorations! Opt for some fun wedding-themed decor such as banners, ring-shaped balloons and a custom photo background to really set the mood.

Live Stream Your Wedding

With so many couples opting for a virtual wedding, live streaming your ceremony is a great way to include all your friends and family who can’t be there in person. It’s also incredibly easy as long as you have a good internet connection! Choose from a variety of platforms like Zoom or Facebook Live, and anyone who tunes in can watch you say “I do”.

Virtual Reception

An online wedding can still have an amazing after party! Invite your guests to get dressed up for the event and celebrate with your closest family and friends. You can use the same streaming platform as your live stream with all the same fun as an in-person reception. Create a playlist of your favorite tunes, invite guests to make toasts, cut your cake and sip on cocktails together to celebrate your new marriage. 

Take Photos

Your wedding day is something you’ll remember for the rest of your life – don’t forget to take time throughout your ceremony and reception to capture the moment as well! Whether you have a friend, family member or photographer who can take photos (at a safe distance) or if you take them yourselves with self timer, these are memories you’ll cherish forever!
