As time goes by more and more brides and grooms to be are planning weddings from locations that are no where near their wedding venues. As crazy as it sounds it’s true!
With the economy the way it is people are having to go further afield to find jobs, and of course these days its a lot easier to hop on a plane and setup home in Australia or America. As I look through my friends list on Facebook I’m often surprised with the amount of old school pals that have emigrated.
Although they have moved away from the area they grew up in, their families and friends remain there and it makes sense for them to still want to get married in that area. This can lead to a few hurdles when planning a wedding from abroad or from a location not near to their “home town”, but these hurdles can be overcome with the use of technology and a can do attitude.
Normally I like to meetup with my clients in person either at the wedding reception venue or another location of their choice, however this can be challenging if they are overseas or elsewhere in the Country. This got me thinking about how to overcome this minor problem and low and behold the answer was staring me right in the face.
I have now had a few Skype meetings using my trusty Mac Book Pro using the built in camera, although I was recently recommended a fantastic HD Webcam that I have used on another laptop with huge success.
My feeling is that the “Skype” meetings will become evermore prevalent as time goes on, as I get older and as Brides and Grooms get younger, but hey don’t get me started on that I’ll save that for another day!
