Say "I do" with Skype

Wedding Style & Decor

The latest trend in wedding problem-solving technology? Video calling. Couples are using Skype's video calling feature to allow friends and family to virtually "attend" their weddings. Skype's video calling feature, which is free for Skype-to-Skype calls, allows people to view your wedding in real-time and even chat with you and take part in the big day. When one bride's father wanted to avoid making an expensive trip from Europe to attend the wedding, the bride used Skype's video calling to allow him to walk her down the aisle. Couples are even saying "I do" over Skype: a groom who was stationed in Baghdad married his bride, who was at home in Colorado, by stationing a webcam in each location. Check out Skype's super-simple video calling instructions to learn how you can use Skype at your wedding. —Kathryn Papanek
