At Lace Bridal Experience, we know that this has been a year full of challenges for our beautiful Brandon, MS brides. But as difficult as 2020 has been, we have been so inspired by the ways our brides have turned to creativity and innovation to tell their true love story in these times.
One bridal trend we’ve been seeing everywhere that we are obsessing over is the Zoom Wedding trend! If you're a bride that doesn’t want to completely cancel her wedding ceremony and is looking for a socially-distant alternative, the Zoom Wedding trend is perfect for you. Zoom Weddings allow you to share your special day with all your loved ones, no matter where in the world they may be, while keeping everyone safe and upholding CDC guidelines. To give you a little inspo for planning your Zoom Wedding, Lace Bridal Experience has put together a little guideline of tips to help get you started.
Set up the stream
While we’re specifically talking about Zoom here, there have been a number of platforms that have popped up that are perfect for streaming your wedding to guests online. It’s best to go with whichever one you feel most comfortable with! If you’re opting for a super intimate digital ceremony with just a few guests, Facetime works just as well.
What we love about Zoom specifically is that you can invite up to 1,000 guests, and that the platform is available on an array of devices including tablets so everyone can join in on the fun. It’s a breeze to use, accessible, and everyone you love can witness your special day!
Consider enlisting one of the members of your socially distant circle as an impromptu iphone camera man. This will take a lot of stress off of your shoulders if someone is there specifically to capture the moment. Be sure to double and triple check your wifi and sound connection in a quick rehearsal to avoid any surprise bugginess!
Location, location, location!
With large scale venues still facing temporary closures, you have an opportunity to choose an intimate venue that is super special to you. Why not turn a loved one’s backyard into a small scale fairy tale with dazzling string lights? See if you can reserve a local art gallery for an evening and stream your ceremony among beautiful paintings by local artists. Or if you want to keep it really simple, you can decorate a nice corner of your house with a personalized background for a crafty touch. No matter what location you pick, be sure to preview how it looks in the camera frame, and adjust as needed.
