This article is part of our Planning a Wedding in a Pandemic: Covid-19 series.
Updated – 29 January 2021!
Since the start of the pandemic, you’ve probably sat through a virtual wedding or even helped set one up. While the coronavirus might have necessitated this phenomenon, we foresee “virtual weddings” and “wedding live streams” to become a norm even long after COVID-19. For the many reasons why guests might not be able to join the celebration in person, having an online link they can easily access will sure help to spread joy to wherever they are.
We know that not many of us are well-versed in this area of technology. With the vast amount of wedding tasks already on hand, adding one more to the list is the last thing you want; not to mention it being a task that requires test runs and seamless actual day execution.
