I wanted to SO badly but we couldnt figure out a way fast enough. (I decided a little too late. Oh well!)

I wish I would have looked into live streaming. I have a friend who has used Justin.tv in the past for live streaming. I don’t know if he has a paid membership or not, but he has a channel. I hope you get it all worked out in time for the wedding. Ninety days is lot of time, so don’t stress about it now. Just do your homework, and be sure to test it at the venue ahead of time.

My daughter and her husband had a similar issue since he is from Colombia and his family got denied thier visas to attend the wedding. Budget was an issue and I believe I found our solution right here on wedding bee!

One of the guests had an iPhone with skype. We used the 3G network and skyped the entire ceremony and much of the reception. It worked well, we just kept charging the phone in between skype sessions. Best of all it was free.

It worked for us because we only needed to do it for his family who were able to be all in the same house.

@djoann958: that’s what we plan to do for my former bridesmaid who will be too pregnant to travel. I think you can multiparty Skype if you pay. I only have the free Skype so I can only vidchat with 1 party, but it will work for us.

I would try google+.  I have used it several times for video conferencing and it was easy to use and easy to get everyone on without needing passwords and other rigemarole.  All you would need is a laptop with a camera in it, or an additional camera feeding into it.  It really is so simple to use.

@djoann958: You are a genius!!!! I was trying to figure out how we would use Skype so my grandma in California could see the ceremony, and NEVER thought of utilizing the device I am basically attached to (AKA My smart phone). That is fantastic. It might not be perfect but someone in the front aisle can hold up the phone while it’s connected so she can be involved… what a fantastic idea. Thanks again!
