Social Distancing Weddings

How to get married in the time of social distancing.

In the era of social distancing, have a social distance wedding and save money too! To be honest, saving money right now by doing it this way is icing on an economically strapped cake. Couples who don’t want to wait can intimately exchange vows despite it all, and save the reception until it’s safe to gather and celebrate. Expect some amazing one year anniversary parties! So how do you say “we do” in this crazy time? You can do it with as little as one smartphone! Or, arrange an extravagant social distancing wedding with GoPros, smartphones, laptops, desktops and/or tablets where all the magical things you can dream up are captured so your audience can experience your stream wedding!

We may not know exactly what the future holds, but we can face it with science, technology and our good friend, creativity! So let’s look into some of the things you’ll need. And keep in mind this is a tutorial; we just want to point you in the right direction and help you look at options you may not have considered until now! Stay safe and still have that special event!

How To Stream Your Wedding

There are so many options available to stream your wedding. Large platforms like Twitch, Mixer and Discord are great avenues to check out, and are easy to set up. Zoom is also fabulous. Tutorials for all of them are on YouTube, or just visit their websites.

You can hold your social distancing wedding inside or out. All you need is access to an outlet or two. You can do this! If you don’t already have the electronics or equipment needed, a decent mic and GoPro run about $100 each, more or less. If
only using one camera, shoot for a model with a good zoom, and being able to plug audio into it would be a good option, too.

Setting up an account and streaming on platforms like Twitch or Mixer is free, and they have so many features! Folks can watch live and comment with each other in real time. You can even set your page to accept donations or link your Amazon Wish List, which family and friends can use to safely give wedding presents they can’t give in person. And the only thing anyone needs to be a part of your event is a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Helpful Streaming Links

There are many great platforms out there to use for a stream wedding. Discord works well with Twitch and Mixer and allows for a separate text chat. Speeches by the Best Man, Maid of Honor and Father of the Bride / Groom can video feed right into your stream!

You may want to avoid business focused stream services intended for meetings since they tend to be more complex to set up, unless you’re already using one.

Smart Phones, Go Pros and Laptops, Oh My!

There are plenty of options to handle this, so you can make things as simple or as intricate as you like. To film or stream a wedding, you need one camera that must be connected to a streaming source, Twitch, Discord or any of the others we’ve already mentioned.

For a more advanced stream wedding with multiple views, you’ll need a few more cameras. They could be smartphones, GoPros, webcams, or anything that can connect to the stream platform you’ve chosen.

Watch some streamers to see how they were done. If watching a gamer, look at the background gameplay. Most streamers have a camera on themselves that appears as a smaller box somewhere on top of their background screen. Keep in mind these sizes can be adjusted. How do you envision your background? It could be the view of your ceremony location. Maybe you’ll exchange vows on your balcony, or in your mother’s garden, or by the stream flowing through your yard. Wherever you choose will be so special and so perfect. You could have smaller camera views of yourselves closer up.

Think about the layout. What do you want to be visible in your social distancing wedding? Then set the cameras to record that area, have them connect wirelessly to your streaming platform, and you’re good to go. There are countless free tutorials on YouTube explaining how to set up your stream and cameras. You can do this!

For The Bride

If you have your bridal attire, wear it now! You can wear it again at your future reception, though new plans might call for a new outfit. Can’t pick up the gown you ordered if your salon is shut down? Find amazing dresses at online sites that sell new and pre-owned gowns, like Tradesy, StillWhite or NearlyNewlywed. Some bridal salons are doing virtual appointments and will ship your choice of one or two gowns they have in stock for you to try and buy. Or you can follow a family tradition by wearing a treasured heirloom gown that will surely bring tears to your mother and grandmother’s eyes when they see your stream wedding. Be creative and remember, it doesn’t have to be white!

Don’t Forget The Shoes!

When the going gets tough, women instinctively go shoe shopping! For whatever type of social distancing wedding you have, we’re here for you! From casual to formal, you’ll find just the right shoes to carry you through.

For the first time ever, we recently made our shoes available for purchase from our site. Though we always recommend buying from our retailers, that may not be possible now. If you purchase from us directly, there’s even an option to name a retailer that helped you so we’re able to give them due credit for work they’ve done to serve you.

Love Will Find A Way

Even after all the quarantines have been lifted, social distance weddings will remain. People are discovering this brilliant new silver lining, such as how cost effective it is and the ability for more people to take part. Being able to live stream these events is an absolute game changer. Love will find a way and social distance weddings are yet another avenue to ensure it.

Look at how well it works. Your “Save The Date” could be a creative broadcast of the location you’ve chosen to exchange your vows where you announce the day and time to tune in. Imagine family and friends anywhere in the world, some of whom may be unable to travel, all watching on devices or HDTVs from the comfort of their own home. Imagine everyone you care about sharing this amazing moment with nothing to stop them, be it weather, health or financial barriers. Some couples even link their wedding registries so guests can easily send a gift if they want.

But it is a very efficient, fascinating, modern means of accomplishing the exact same thing. Letting two people express their love and commitment to each other while their dear ones bear witness.
