A wedding is a momentous occasion. The idea is to get as much of the family and as many friends from near and far together to celebrate this big day. However, in some cases it is impossible for everyone to make it to the wedding. How can you help out-of-town or working family members or friends feel like they are part of the big day? Consider these tips.
- Live Stream It — Facebook, Instagram and YouTube all have tools available that make it possible to live stream nearly any event. Why not have someone record the wedding using a live streaming service? You can arrange it as a private feed, if you so desire. In doing so, your out-of-town loved ones can experience the day as it unfolds too. Depending on the service and options selected, the video can be saved for future viewing by the recipient or shared with others.
- Send a Favor — Don’t leave the loved ones who couldn’t make the wedding out of the loop. Send along the favors for a simple touch that shows you care.
- Consider a Second Reception — If you have a large number of friends or family members in another state, you may think about hosting a second reception. It will give all of these people the chance to celebrate your big day in a more convenient manner.
While it may not be possible to have everyone attend your wedding, there are some simple things you can do that help everyone feel like they are a part of your big day — and that’s what truly matters.
