We have done many virtual events over the past few years. We have been blessed to entertain at in-person events all over the world including England, Spain, Africa, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Cancun, Cabo, Canada, and all over the United States. Now we get to entertain people in different continents all at once. If you need a DJ that knows how to make virtual Indian weddings fun, contact us here.
You were probably planning a Big Fat Indian Wedding pre-Covid. Suddenly, the world changed and your plans were shattered. We are all navigating through the new normal. Some couples kept their date, some postponed their dates and others went virtual.
The main purpose of this blog is to share with couples a guideline to a smooth virtual Indian wedding weekend. If you want new music lists on Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube or want some Non-Stop Mixes, fill out the form on this page.
Virtual Indian weddings can be a lot of fun for many reasons. Although, the number of people physically attending is smaller than the typical big fat Indian wedding, this means you will only have the people you care most about with you in-person or virtually. We love making each virtual Indian wedding unique and memorable.
Types Virtual Weddings
1) All Virtual
This is where the in-person group is kept to a minimum. A few couples are doing just the two of them. Some couples are allowing parents and siblings. However, most couples are including immediate family and close friends. All other guests will watch the wedding virtually. We have done live stream DJing from remote locations and entertained the in-person and virtual guests at the same time.
Most couples who are planning their Indian wedding during a pandemic will fall into this category. This is where you have an intimate wedding with close family and friends and still want the people that weren't able to attend in-person, watch everything online. You need to have good audio and video streams for everyone watching. We have done this many times because of COVID. We simultaneously entertain the in-person guests and the virtual ones in creative ways.
3) Barely Virtual
This is where you have your wedding the way you want and leave a phone or iPad streaming. The couple will stream their wedding but no one will watch it because of poor audio or video. It's better than nothing but not by much.
Which Parts to Stream
We highly recommend to Live Stream all of your major events so loved ones can still be a part of your wedding events or skip the parts you want to avoid. We can handle this part for you, feel free to contact us here.
