This new type of wedding could save you a bundle. Your friends and family can attend virtually, and you're not stuck footing the bill for dinner and an open bar.

Evite's celebration expert Zaria Zinn tells Parade. "Zoom is a great option for broadcasting your wedding ceremony and sharing the moment with friends and family—almost as if they were in the room with you." Zinn has some words of advice though—noting that the free version of Zoom is limited to about 40 minutes, while Google Hangout and Skype do not set time limits.
