We are planning on streaming our wedding ceremony live for those guests who are unable to come. We aren’t having a videographer so we aren’t 100% on how we are going to do this yet BUT we want to and I am sure we will find a way. Mr. Hedgie and my dad are uber computer geeks and in combination with HIS computer geek dad I am sure we will have some crazy set-up that will somehow allow guests to interact from their livingroom seats… thats just what they do.
I have 2 questions though.
1) If you were a guest and couldn’t attend the wedding would you bother switching on the computer to watch the ceremony?
2) I am one of those people who always wants to be a fly on the wall at other peoples weddings. I want to see how they do things and either come up with ideas or just to see what is different. ESPECIALLY interfaith/multi-cultural weddings. Also, I am not one of those super private people that refuses to share details about my life. I am pretty open and love to show off. Especially when it comes to marrying Mr. Hedgie. So, my second question is how crazy would it be to give those bees who would like it, a link to the stream so they can watch it? I know we all (or many of us ) loved watching the royal wedding for more than the simple fact that it was royal (although that was a pretty good contributing factor). Is that crazy? For me weddings aren’t private personal things. They are exciting-share worthy things.

If I was an invited guest and unable to attend, I would 1000000% watch the live stream.
And yeah, I’d TOTALLY watch the live stream of a fellow Bee!

My cousin eloped to vegas and the whole family got together and watched the whole thing. It was really fun and we even bought cake and champagne. A lot of people were actually crying too through the ceremony, even though we were watching it on TV
I actually want to do this too, since we are having a DW, but I dont know how to go about doing it… Maybe you could give me some pointers lol
And lastly, I would love a link to it!!!! I love watching weddings. Its pretty much a sure thing that I’m gonna cry at your wedding lol

So I am not as crazy and Mr. Hedgie will think I am when I bring it up to him?

Not crazy at all, I would totally watch it. We had a virtual wedding shower this year for a friend and a virtual baby shower for another. So a wedding would be awesome, especially if I couldn’t make the journey. Can I be a virtual guest at your wedding?

I have actually had a guest suggest this to me because they knew they weren’t going to be able to come. This will be true for a lot of guests. Please let us know how it works out! I am not at all a computer genius though.
