Adding Livestream to your wedding website

With Garden State Bride, you can now integrate livestreaming seamlessly into your wedding website to ensure that everyone can be a part of your celebration, no matter where they are. Follow these simple steps to set up your livestream:

  1. Create your channel: Log in to your Garden State Bride account and navigate to the Create section on the top right.

  2. Create Livestream Channel: Look for the "+ Create Livestream" button located at the top right corner of your dashboard. Click on it to begin the process of setting up your livestream.

  3. Set Up Your Livestream Channel: After clicking the create livestream button, you will be directed to enter your names and your wedding livestream description and the logo for your livestream channel. Once completed, a new tab will appear under your profile page. This tab is where you'll manage your livestream channel. Here, you can customize settings such as privacy options and stream details.

  4. Activate Your Channel: Once you've customized your livestream settings, it's time to activate your channel. This will make your livestream accessible to your wedding guests through your Garden State Bride wedding website.

  5. Stream on Your Wedding Website: With your Livestream tab activated, your livestream will now be embedded directly onto your wedding website. Guests can easily find and watch your livestream by navigating to the designated tab on your site.

  6. Share the Link: To ensure that all of your guests can join in on the celebration, share the direct link to your wedding website with them. This will allow them to access the livestream effortlessly and be a part of your special day, even from afar.

The streaming is based on your internet speed so feel free to test it prior. We recommend a bandwitch on the livestream button of 1000Kb to 1500Kb. In case your livestream will freeze, simply refresh your page.

There is a 20 second delay on the livestream from your view as the streaming person to the wedding website to allow for buffering. This allows the stream to be continuous in the event the network slows down.
