Everything to Know About Hosting a Virtual Wedding

Just because we’re encouraged to stay inside and keep our distance from friends and family doesn’t mean that you have to put your nuptials on hold, you know. Sure, you might not be able to go through with the wedding that you had planned, but if you’re happy to go ahead with your wedding without all of the bells and whistles, then you’ll be happy to know that it’s super easy to host your own virtual wedding.

Check The Rules

Before you decide to cancel all of your original bookings and opt for a virtual wedding, though, it’s important to check the rules. Marriage laws vary across the country and across the globe, so it’s best to check that you can obtain your marriage license for a virtual ceremony before putting pedal to the metal. Once you’ve done this, you’re ready to go.

Create Your Guestlist

Just as you would send invitations to a physical wedding, you also need to send invitations to your virtual wedding. An email or text message should suffice when it comes to narrowing down your guestlist, and this email should outline the date and time of the virtual wedding, the location (for example, Zoom or Google Hangouts), and any passwords or meeting IDs they may need to attend.

Dress The Part

Of course, you don’t have to dress the part for your virtual wedding if you don’t want to, but we’re gonna go ahead and assume that most people will want to give their wedding dress and their tux a good run-around before it goes in the closet. You could also ask your guests to dress the part as well, to make it more of a celebration than just a cyber hangout.

While hosting your own virtual wedding rather than a physical wedding is different, that doesn’t mean that it has to lose all meaning. At the end of the day, you’ll still be married.

5 Top 2022 Wedding Dress Trends

Wedding dress trends are changing and how. From short hemlines and ruffled dresses to floral motifs and romantic sleeves, the Bridal Fashion Week has brought in glamorous options for the brides of 2022. Some of these trends will leave you looking stunning on your wedding day. If you haven’t looked at all the trends, worry not. Here are the top 5 trends on wedding dresses, you should consider. They are straight off the runway and will definitely be hot in the next year. Take a look.

1. Short Dresses

The short hemlines look great. Whether you plan on eloping, have a small close-knit ceremony, or just want to show off your gorgeous shoes, this trend is just what you need. A short wedding dress is a great choice for all other wedding events like the rehearsal dinner, the reception, or even the bridal shower that your friends may throw you.

2. Ruffled Dresses

Now that the idea of the big wedding is coming back, it is time to give the concept of minimalism a break and indulge in maximalist gowns. Go big! Look at frilly wedding dress options that have intricate detailing done on them. If you have chosen a gown with a mermaid silhouette, then you can add another dimension to it with a ruffled skirt. It is fashion-forward as well as a little bit whimsical. However, if you are not into volume for your ruffles, you can opt for a streamlined cut with fewer ruffles on them.

3. Colorful Floral Dresses

Floral designs on wedding dresses are classic, traditional even but there is more you can get than just that. Embroidery and 3-D rosettes give this traditional trend a refreshing new look. If you are a bride who is looking to try something new, you can consider pastel floral designs on the wedding dress.

4. Feather-Embellished Dresses

If you are a bride looking to walk down the aisle looking glamorous then you can consider adding feather embellishments to your wedding dress. They are big this season and a great way to add more character to an otherwise traditional gown.

5. Off-Shoulder Sleeved Dresses

The beauty of an off-shoulder sleeves dress is that it can be used for any kind of fitting. Be it a mermaid gown that is well fitted or even a gorgeous grand ball gown, this neckline is flattering and is just the choice to bring out your inner romantic. This neckline also works with any type of fabric.
