    I'm interested in knowing has anyone tried to set up a laptop that will be able to show your wedding live? It would be for our friends and family was wasn't able to make that trip with us to the DR. Can this be done, if so, how did you do it?

      I'm interested in hearing about this too. I think it would be awesome if resorts did this. If wireless reached the beach you would have no problem :)  I'm hoping to have a family member do some digital video and the upload it asap for our family who could not make it.

        Just wanted to add that we are both on the facebook group for the majestic colonial too! I read your similar question on the fb group and thought I was having deja vu, lol.

         

        When is your wedding date? I'm the end of August 2011.

          I would love to know the answer as well since it will only be the two of us during our DW.

            That's good to know that I'm not the only one thinking of this. and LOL ! @aaronlori for both of us being on FB. My wedding is coming up!! May21, 2011 - Saturday at 4 p.m. And it's a Gazebo wedding. My WC, Sandra did confirm this about the internet connection: ** We want to show our wedding live on the internet. At the resort is Internet access free? I think it's called webstreaming or there's the program called SKYPE. Has something like this been done before at the resort? [Sandra de la Cruz] We are working on getting this service to be offered to our clients on a near future, however it is not ready yet, so I can’t guarantee that it will be for your wedding, If you are really interested, when having a ceremony at the gazebo we might be able to ask for internet connection there so if you bring a laptop and using Skype you will be able to do that. **Can you confirm if there’s a cost and if so how much, for the internet connection and the length of time? [Sandra de la Cruz] Well in case of having internet connection for the gazebo for the ceremony it will be US$50.00 Congrats to your upcoming nupitals aaronlori and deannamarie85!

              Thanks for posting that! Looks like they are making progress with that option. I love SKYPE, hope they start making that possible for future brides. As long as you can get the internet connection there should be no issue with getting the laptop up and running with a live feed. I am getting married on the beach so that would be much more difficult perhaps than the beach.

                Now the only possible problem could be how many family members can squeeze around the computer screen to watch? LOL

                  I'm getting married at PPR so experience at MC isn't totally applicable but still curious to find out how this goes if anyone tries to stream their wedding (live or upload after).  If wifi wasn't available on beach, I was looking at Ustream as an option from a droid or iphone assuming mobile reception was good (quality might be so-so though).

                    Anyone had any luck actually doing this?

                      For anyone wondering, I contacted this company: http://www.tropicalw...astinglive.html

                      And they quoted me $600 to live webcast the wedding from the beach. (Jamaica).
