Since 2020, much of the global population has gotten used to attending lectures on Zoom, joining work meetings through Google Meets, and catching up with friends by doing video calls. As a result of this, a massive amount of events and wedding ceremonies have been increasingly held through such digital mediums. Now, more than ever before, we are spend more time in the virtual world.

The wedding depicted reality – friends, as avatars, delivered toasts, and danced in the reception, the venue was decked out in virtual decorations, and everyone was having fun. 

Weddings on the metaverse are an attractive option, as there are no limitations. You can organize a wedding on a deserted island, or in your dream city, without having to fly in any of your guests.

“If you really want to do something different, in the metaverse you might as well let your creativity go wild,” 

Sandy Hammer, the CEO of Allseated, told The New York Times. Allseated is a wedding (and other events) planning platform.
