Hi ladies,
Firs post here. I am a 10/10 bride affected by COVID19. Most of my family will not make it as the airports in my country remain closed. I am just so disappointed. We will have 25 guests mostly family and I am planning to do a live video for a selected group? Whats the best platform for this purpose and still to keep it private?

    My best friend is getting married the end of October and setting up a Facebook group to go live in because all of her guests are already on Facebook, it’s free, and those who can’t watch live can watch it later. There seem to be a lot of streaming services popping, you may just have to do some research and see which is going to have exactly what you want. Our wedding is taking place somewhere we won’t have reliable internet service, so I haven’t bothered looking into streaming. Good luck! It’s really unfortunate most of your family can’t make it, hopefully they can watch and feel like they are part of your day still!

    I was in the same boat — my venue is on the beach and sometimes has spotty service. In my research, I found that some steaming companies and even videographers have ways to deal with internet issues - like their own hotspots, etc. I’m working with a videographer who has the ability to deal with this issue and will stream to a custom landing page. Just wanted to let you know there may be options to address the internet issue just in case you wanted a livestream option. 😊

    Thank you for bringing up the connection issue. It was not in my radar until now. Oh God!

    You’re very welcome! When I canceled my large wedding last month and switched gears to planning a minimony, I started looking at the streaming issue. At first, I was going to do it myself with my own equipment (phones and tablets), but I realized that may not work for me. It’s definitely something to consider and if it’s an issue, go through a professional. I have found not only professional streaming companies but also wedding videographers and even some DJs have streaming capabilities. Plus, they bring their own professional equipment and handle everything — which is an added bonus!

    We streamed ours via YouTube. The church did it through their channel and we did a larger reception (much bigger space ...social distancing not possible in church) and live streamed the ceremony on a portable screen at reception venue.

    I'm sorry you can't have all your family there for your big day!

    We made a facebook group of the guests who could not attend and will stream our ceremony to that group.
