Good news for couples who'd rather not interact with any family members on their special day: Ikea is offering a new service called "Wedding Online" that allows couples to get married virtually, and invite their friends and family to watch the ceremony via a live stream.
The only people who actually have to be in the room are the happy couple, the officiator, and two witnesses, who are required to be physically present in order for the ceremony to be considered legally binding.
Now your great aunt who doesn't want to leave her cats for the weekend will still be able to go to your wedding... as long as she can figure out how to log on to the Ikea website. Your college friends will be grateful that they don't have to shell out for a plane ticket, and you'll be glad you won't have to hear your parents' friends remind you about that time you adorably puked at the Christmas party.
As a part of the service, Ikea is enabling couples to get married in front of a green screen, so that expensive destination wedding can finally be a reality, sort of.
With this type of technology at your disposal, your venue options are endless!

With endless backdrop options, Ikea's Wedding Online service is totally worth it! What's better than finding a way to avoid annoying family members AND have a destination wedding that won't break the bank? Ikea knows what wedding dreams are made of.
