Every Princess Dreams of her Wedding Day to the Perfect Prince -Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

 Helpful Guide to Getting Married in Second life

Marriage in Second Life© is a mutual celebration of love surrounded by avatars that care and support the couple’s commitment to one another. There are many different traditions and preferences when planning the perfect wedding and they can be found in the virtual world.  It all depends on what  couples want.  Some prefer to include their traditions, family and friends. Others choose to make it a more intimate affair with only their closest circle of loved ones in attendance.  Whatever the preferences, love and happiness is truly what matters.

 In Second Life, there is no wrong or right way to join hands among witnesses to confess everlasting love to one another.   Getting married should be a special day that is meant to be cherished for all eternity.
 (In SL that could mean anywhere from 3 to 6 months; longer for those that are truly in love)

Second Life has many beautiful locations for weddings and receptions, but finding the right venue can take a little bit of time and patience. Most places offer a ceremony and reception package, while others offer more custom tailored services, including a Honeymoon retreat way up in the clouds or on some island in the middle of the Grid Sea.

Whether it is done at the local RP Courthouse, outdoors, in a magnificent Cathedral , a small modest Chapel , underwater or on a mountain top, anything is possible  if you can afford it. Virtually anything can be created for an extra fee.
 A wedding budget is a major factor in making decisions that both parties can be happy with.  An average virtual wedding can range anywhere from 5,000L-12,000L and for those with more lavish taste, 50,000L is roughly the bill if the couple wants to go above and beyond by booking a top notch musician, comedian or even a circus act complete with fire eating carnies, tight rope walking clowns, trapeze swinging bearded ladies  or wild animals. (Let’s not forget the officiant who will join the two of you in matrimony). Some only ask for a donation others require a set fee.

There are also officiant bots as well that can provide this service but that is up to you.  No matter how creative or strange the ideas are, every detail is important and can be custom tailored to the couple’s needs for the perfect wedding day.
Aside from venues and entertainment details, another thing that is an important part of the event is the wedding attire.  The groom needs a sharp tuxedo with accents that match what the groomsmen are wearing and the color theme has to compliment the bridesmaid’s dresses or you risk being tacky.
  The Wedding Gown is a major attraction for any wedding so it has to stand out above the rest because everyone is eager to see the bride walking down the aisle wearing a breathtaking ensemble. If you don’t have that wow factor, you may as well elope.

The first step you want to take is creating a checklist to keep things organized and to ensure your wedding day is perfect.

Here are some handpicked locations to visit if you are getting married or entertaining the thought.
