It’s tough not to be there for someone you love on their special day. Whether it’s geographic, financial, or bad timing, there are lots of reasons you may have to miss a wedding. But thanks to a new trend in webcast weddings, you may never have to decline a wedding invite again.

Weddings broadcasted online, say via Skype, may seem somewhat impersonal, but it also alleviates a lot of the drama traditional weddings bring. After all, weddings are increasingly expensive, often driving the bride and groom into enormous debt right at the beginning of their lives together. Streaming the ceremony online lets the happy couple cut down on pomp and circumstance, and therefore save big.

It can also prevent that slighted feeling friends and families have when they find out they weren’t invited. A wedding held in a small, intimate venue can hold way more people if most of them are online. Even that weird, embarrassing uncle won’t be able to ruin the event, because he’s 1,000 miles away, watching from his living room.

Best of all, considering how far-flung families can be nowadays, viewing weddings online lets family members who would otherwise unable to attend share in the experience.

Couples are already budgeting for photographers and videographers, and planning on uploading pictures and photos to online albums. Why not include the option to live stream, too?
