    Would you have a chance to practice ahead of time? I would be a little worried about the technology and that something would go wrong with the sound/internet. Otherwise, I say go for it. It’s only a matter of time before this turns up in an Apple commercial.

    I would not count on this happening at all. I know people who have everything set up right with the highest speed internet connections available to business customers, and they still have delays, disconnects, and fuzzy pictures.

    I don’t have any issues with doing non-traditional things in a ceremony, but I just really doubt you can count on the technology actually working when it needs to work. It’s one thing if it’s just you talking to a friend and you’re happy to wait for Skype to reconnect. It’s a very different thing when 50 people who may not know the person are wondering why you have to run over and fiddle with the mouse to get a reading they may not even be able to hear or understand.

    Could she make a video or voice recording to send to you instead?

    My honorary brides made lives out of country, and while I would LOVE for her to be there, I know it’s not very logical. So I want to set up a webcam, so that she can still watch it. My entire family is technology oriented, so I figure they can get it to stream successfully. Especially with technology get better and better, I honestly don’t see why it would be an issue to put it online, (maybe on a password protected website?) so that those who cannot make it for any reason can still be there in a sense.

    Check with your location, ask them about internet, maybe they have a port you can directly plug into, to avoid lag. Besides, I am sure they won’t mind having to wait a little, if it starts streaming early. 🙂
