6 Reasons Why You Should Live Stream Your Twin Cities Wedding

Why live stream you Twin Cities Wedding? When it comes to weddings, couples may be looking at ways for international relatives to still feel connected during the ceremony, or the wedding budget requires cutting back the guest list count. When you still want everyone to be able to tune in, even if it’s just virtually, live streaming your Twin Cities event is the best option. Let’s dive right into the benefits of live streaming your wedding ceremony.

6 Reasons Why You Should Live Stream Your Twin Cities Wedding

Endless Rewatching

The most fun reason to live stream is so you can rewatch the ceremony all over again – and so can family and friends! It’s hard to comprehend how special it is to watch this exciting, important, whirlwind moment in your life! It may be a blur when it happens, but it’s an awesome experience to be able to listen to the vows again and relive the emotions of the momentous ceremony.

Larger Reach

With live streaming, you have endless invites to the viewing party! While you may leave some extended family or long-lost high school friends out of the invite to your actual wedding, you don’t have to leave anyone out on the livestream invite! 

Keep Guest Count (and Prices!) Down

You won’t have to feel bad about leaving your mother’s coworkers, your Pilates instructor, or any guests you’re on the fence about out of the invite, since you’re still able to invite them to tune into the day! With another option to view your wedding, you can keep your guest count down which keeps the cost of catering and rentals down as well. By just inviting roughly three less tables of people (around 24 less guests), you can save over $1000 in appetizer, dinner, beverage, table decor and linen rental costs. 

No Additional Duties

Your friends and your family can simply enjoy the ceremony, whether they’re in person or watching from afar, while Complete Weddings + Events handles the live stream. Having no additional tasks for you and your guests makes choosing to do a live stream that much easier!

Affordable Video Option

In modern times, video is everywhere, because it’s truly the best method we have to capture it all! We hear the most common regret couples have after a wedding was not hiring a videographer, and we definitely understand a professional videographer does not fit in everyone’s budget. But livestreaming is a happy medium for those who are budget-conscious, but still want this special time captured. 

Live streaming is the perfect affordable video option, especially if you simply cannot afford a wedding videographer. You may already find extra room in the budget when limiting your total guest count, and this affordable option is a great way for those you didn’t make the final cut to still be involved in your big day!

An Option For All To Be Connected

The clear decision to choose live streaming is to be able give the opportunity for so many dear friends and family to still be connected and engaged on your wedding day. It’s still awesome to be able to watch the ceremony after the fact, but it’s quite exciting and unifying to be watching it live, as it happens! Offering a live stream of your wedding helps for all to feel as though they are not missing out on this special day.
