This Couple Livestreamed Into Their Wedding Because All Of The Guests Were Afraid Of Getting The Coronavirus

A Singapore couple who visited China before their wedding celebration didn’t let their guests’ coronavirus worries upend their event — they stayed away and livestreamed themselves instead, according to a report.

When their guests learned that the couple had just returned from China, they had second thoughts.

“We wanted to postpone the wedding but the hotel was not willing to. They said everything had been arranged and it was non-negotiable,” he added. “So we felt like we had no choice but to proceed with the wedding.”

Smart move to livestream the wedding instead of getting everyone sick....but let's not forget that computers can get viruses, too! Alright, bad joke time is over. I don't give a shit about the coronavirus. I don't know really anything about it, and quite honestly, if it's not a death sentence, I don't think I would mind getting it. I could use a couple weeks off work right now. Getting quarentined sounds like a blessing, not a curse. I've been contemplating a potential vasectomy this March Madness to get put up on the couch, but I might start thinking about injecting a small dosage of the virus into my leg for that first weekend of the tournament. Can you hang with other people that have the coronavirus? If so, me and the boys are about the be HYPED.

Anyways, the point of this blog is not to talk about the virus. It's to talk about the fact that this couple just solved long distance weddings. I know they livestreamed INTO their wedding, but I want to start livestreaming instead of going to certain weddings.

Let's make one thing clear before I start: there's nothing better than a good wedding. Free booze, good food, and good looking women....I'm at the age right now where I'd never turn one down. But there's also nothing worse than a bad wedding. You all know what I'm talking about.....having to drive out of state, not really knowing anyone, getting a hotel, and oh yeah, not an open bar. But what are you going to do, not go? If someone is going to invite me to their wedding, I'm going to go. I feel rude if I don't. But if this livestream thing became mainstream? Oh boy, that's a gamechanger. I'd wayyyyyy rather send a card with some money in it, sit at home and watch the wedding, then do a drink with the bride and groom from my couch. Saves so much time, and honestly, it saves a bunch of money, too.

At the end of the day, weddings can be cool.....but weddings are SUCH a waste of money. For everyone involved. Livestreaming your wedding may become the new trendy, economical option. Have everyone send you the same amount of money....and you don't even have to spend it all on the venue and food and DJ and such. And your guests don't have to give up an entire weekend to come. Win / win for everyone.
