Welcome to the future.
Weddings are expensive affairs.
When you take into account venue hire, catering, celebrant, florals, misc invite costs and then the dress - the DRESS - well, you really better hope it’s forever because the price of everything certainly won’t leave your mental consciousness anytime soon. And there ain't no way of getting that money back!
Well, kind of.
Thanks to us living in the 21st century, (nearly) anything is possible. But specifically, I’m talking about Virtual Reality weddings.
You read that correctly. New technology means that you can now relive your special day over, and over, and over, and over again.

The company making this all possible, VR Weddings, says, “Imagine being able to re-experience the best day of your life, witness the reactions of close relatives that you may not have seen on the day, share the experience with relatives and loved ones who may not have been able to make it to your wedding”.
Of course, you’re able to tailor your virtual reality wedding experience to your needs and budget, with a few different packages available.
The most basic package includes a VR Weddings client manager, a production meeting, a videographer for the full day, post produced edit and a Youtube link.
For those who want to go all out, the gold package includes you’re very own VR headset, and the package above that - premium - comes with an additional photographer.
The VR weddings website says, "VR weddings provides you with a virtual reality headset containing the best moments from your wedding, allowing you to get as close to the memories year after year."
The company is based in Ireland at the moment but expend them to expand soon enough allowing everyone to truly get bang for their buck!
