Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? Online Virtual Weddings

Could you imagine attending a wedding online? With so many couples finding love online these days, it's no shocker that there are actually wedding ceremonies which allow "virtual vows." This year's Fan Faire in Las Vegas will host the first-ever live and virtual wedding ceremony for a couple who are huge fans of the video game EverQuest II. During the ceremony they will both simultaneously exchange live and virtual vows through their EverQuest II avatars via computers, which will just so happen to be joining them at the altar. Trendhunter, says it just isn’t enough for the couple to exchange "I do’s" in the real world, because then their virtual pals would be missing out. What are your thoughts on this? Over the top geeky or kinda geek chic? Leave your comments below!Image Source

i think if someone met on an online rpg, it'd be neat because that way you could "invite" people to the wedding that you wouldn't normally invite (like friends you want to keep virtual).

Bizarre.... and extremely interesting if your looking for research material on the psychology of agoraphobics and the lengths they'll go to to avoid actual contact with other people. It's such a huge disconnect from reality.

I can imagine it, in fact tons of ppl I chat with had virtual weddings on Ragnarök Online. I thought they were joking at first until it actually took place. I would never have one though. I'm not a big fan of weddings in general.

I used to joke about exchanging vows in an MMO with my husband... but at some point you have to disconnect and I think a wedding would be a fine time to do that. Set off fireworks in game after or something!

I actually attended a virtual wedding when I played Everquest I. Was kinda weird since they both were married outside of the game - to seperate people that didn't play the game! My college roomate also met and married a guy she met through EQ.
