Not content with dominating the household furniture arena, Swedish giant Ikea is now providing a rather different service, enabling couples to enjoy an online wedding with virtual cut outs of them and all their friends.
The unusual offering allows people to use their webcams for their faces to be pasted onto an online ceremony, which is featured on the company’s ‘wedding online’ site.
The service also allows couples to choose from a variety of locations to host their digital happy day, and means that all family and friends – no matter where they are – can attend at little cost.
As well as there being a range of venues, the site also allows the couple to be creative, and even leaves space for speeches to be made by members of the wedding party. It truly can be an interactive experience, with the service being linked into social media.
Certainly there is no substitute for a classic wedding event serviced by a professional wedding photographer from North West England, though couples today like to add that little bit extra to proceedings, so there is nothing to stop people from having a virtual wedding in a magical forest as well as a traditional one, grounded in reality.
For those who are rushing out to order one of these little whimsical occasions, it is unfortunately only available in Sweden. However, couples who like something a little alternative will surely be keeping a keen eye out to be one of the first people on these shores to order and plan such an event.
