Share your wedding online!


This is a great option for couples with family members who live too far away to attend the wedding, couples with a limited guest list, or couples that elope but still want to share their memories. Sharing your wedding online is a convenient and quick way to spread the news and let everyone in on the details of your special day. With such wonderful advances in technology and a little know how, sharing your wedding online might be easier than you think! The most common materials needed to share your wedding online are a camera (you can use your iphone or tablet), an internet connection, and access a video sharing service (there are several free and low-cost options out there). If it gets too overwhelming, you could always ask your tech savvy friend for help or have your professional videographer do it for you.

Option A: Stream your event LIVE!
How exciting to have friends and family that are unable to attend gathered around their computers or mobile devices watching you exchange your vows in real time as they happen! In the comfort of their homes or even on the go, there are several services that can help you stream your event online. UStream https://www.ustream.tv/platform/pro?itm_source=header_menu&itm_medium=pro_link&itm_content=Pro_Broadcasting&itm_campaign=header offers a free 30 day trial, and LiveStream https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id493086499?mt=8 offers an app available for purchase online at the iTunes store. If you want advice on which service to choose we suggest this article posted by OffBeatBride.com: http://offbeatbride.com/2014/07/live-steaming-your-wedding Each service is different; some require you send out invites, some have optional privacy settings, and some limit the amount of people you can share your live video stream with. Keep this in mind when making your selection. Whatever streaming service you decide to use, make sure you test it out before the big day!

Option B: Record your own wedding video with the help of a friend and upload it to the internet
This could be as simple as recording a video on your iphone and uploading it to your Facebook page. Facebook limits the size videos you can upload to around 20 minutes or 1 GB whichever is smaller, so you can split up longer or larger videos into parts. Just make sure you have room on your phone to store your video. You can find more information about this here: http://ipod.about.com/od/iphonevideoandmovies/qt/How-Much-Iphone-4-Video-Can-You-Record.htm If you’re not a fan of Facebook but you have a YouTube account, you could upload your video and share the link to it through email.

Option C: Find out what your videographer can do for you
 Your videographer has professional grade equipment and lots of technical experience, it wouldn’t hurt to inquire about services like uploading your video or video highlights to the internet, or find out if they offer live streaming. All videographers should have a YouTube channel to showcase their work so it should be relatively easy for them to upload your wedding video highlights.


Hope we gave you some basic wedding video ideas and insight. Congratulations and many happy memories to you!

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule,
