@awndrayuhh:  I am having a Destination Wedding in Hawaii. Looking to have 25-35 people, mostly family. I am inviting 71 people but already know that at least half are definitely not coming. We think we will have a get-together/reception later when we get back home and get a DVD of some of the best photos and a highlight reel of the video ceremony so they can share in our happiness.

It can be very hard to set up a live streaming event across the internet. You have to take into account time differences (if going o/s). I would just upload it privately to facebook or youtube and then send out the link on a wedding announcement. It might also come off as rude to some people. It might make them feel second class or not good enough.

I am confused by your gift question. Are you wanting to send registry/gift information to those you are not inviting to the wedding? If so that is considered rude in most places and might offend people (they will think I am not good enough to come to your actual wedding but you want a gift out of me?).

I would do what Stargaze is going to do. Just have a good videographer and show people the video when you get back. Maybe have a small reception for the people who aren’t invited to the Destination Wedding.

If you get married at a resort that specializes in weddings they may have online streaming for an additional fee after videography.

Yeah I know a lot of locations actually have videography services that include live streaming packages as well.  You can inquire about that when you are ready to book your wedding/choose destination
