New kind of destination wedding: Where there’s a ‘Net connection

WASHINGTON – It’s a destination wedding of a different kind.

But instead of traveling to an exotic locale to see the nuptials, attendees can view the ceremony online — a destination available almost anywhere.

The New York Times reports that while online weddings seem novel now, they’re indicative of something bigger. It’s a great idea for couples who want to include more people or those far away.

UStream is one popular site married-couples- to-be can use. There are also streaming sites that cater specifically to weddings like “I Do” Stream and Marry Me live.

The wedding can be made available for all the world to see or be password- protected so only those invited can watch.

Perhaps the most famous live-streamed wedding of recent time was the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Watch it again below.
