Online Wedding??

Recommended Posts

I'm getting marry in Cabo this November and I know a lot of folks who just can't make it mainly because of financial reasons. I was wondering if anyone is planning on setting up a live broadcast for folks back home to watch the ceremony online?

 

I've done a google search and I found a link IdoStream live wedding webcast, broadcast and video streaming. Share your wedding live online for friends and family who cannot make it to the event. which I thought is pretty cool to set up, but I'm afraid that there may not be any internet signals on the beach. The resort only have a few hotspots to use the wireless, but other than that - I'm not too sure. Any thoughts?

Our resort in Jamaica offers that as an option. You might want to check with your resort to see if it is offered and what the cost would be.

 

We considered it but then thought, who will be home at 4:30 on a Saturday to watch online live? It does stay active for 60 or 90 days, but we are having a reception at home and plan to show our wedding video. In the end we decided to spend the $400 elsewhere.

Oh my goodness. Okay, just a crazy thought right now....

 

Imagine if you were planning on eloping and you tell your family and friends back home to go on the internet at that time because you will send them a virtual 'hello'- so they go online, look, and you are getting married instead!!!!

 

LoL- that would be crazy.

The following Christmas we plan on sending out Christmas cards with a video link along with our link to our online photobook.

Plus, probably a hard copy photo of us and one of the big group that came.

I think live wedding is a great idea. The key value here is "live".

If my best friend is getting married and I can't go, I would love to be able to watch it live on the internet.

There's something magical about hearing someone saying "I Do" and see/watch them tie the knot. Isn't that why we invite friends and families to our wedding?

Watching a video after it has happened is just not the same. It's already happened, it's in the past.

 

I think live webcasting is perfect for destination weddings. I know a lot of my friends and family won't be there. I will definitely look into this further.

Sorry - I ran across this posting a little late...

 

We have tossed around the idea of Live-Broadcast with Dreams Los Cabos. I have also been in contact with IDO STREAM... The problem is that Dreams has a weak wireless connection that does not always work... This obstacle makes it impossible to upstream a live wedding. A HARD-WIRE connection is the best to have - which, obviously, on the beach is not possible...

 

Maybe someday soon we will be equipped to LIVE-STREAM weddings here in Cabo and when that day comes we plan on offering that service.

Dear LilyWu,

It is nice to hear from you again, regarding your question... I know very well the beach where your wedding will be held at and I happen to know a bit or two about live streaming... I'll tell you thought, in order to have the wedding broadcasted live from that particular spot on the beach will cost you quite some money... Here's why:

* First of all I can be done, just need the right tools.
* You need to rent (buy), a big signal booster to get a steady signal from the location of your wedding.
* The closest internet hub is at the restaurant by the pool (about 250 yards away from the ceremony area)
* You will need a dedicated stream so you can upload with no problem.
* Usually, all hotels have internet hotspots but their signal is kind of weak.
* I am thinking, cabling from the hub to the site, a booster for the internet conexion and a dedicated server to stream live.

Hhmmmm I should get this idea rolling right?
Maybe next time, I can offer this service also right? :)

Have a great day and too bad I wasn't available to do your ceremony!

so far everyone is saying they are coming to the wedding, but no doubt next year when it comes to booking some people will be in a different financial situation, so it depends how many people can't go. But if there are quite a few, or someone really special, we would defo get the live cam feed set up if Moon Palace were able to do it. It would make the guests at home feel like they were a part of it in a weird way!

 

So how does it work - is someone filming it or it is just a webcam set up somewhere? It would be great if it was someone filming so they could zoom in on guests and they could talk to the camera!!

 

Getting a bit carried away now!!....

    • Watches as a gift can never go wrong. Couple necklaces, or special jewelry can also be a great choice. 
    • As a wedding gift, necklaces are a good choice.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
