EventLive’s Wedding Live Stream Checklist

Pre-Event Checklist

Estimate time required: 10-15 minutes.

  • Create and Schedule your Event on the EventLive app
  • Share the Event Link with your friends and family
  • Assign someone to do the Live Stream for you and send them our app, so they can get familiarized with it. It will take them 5 minutes at most.
  • Write a pinned message encouraging your guests to sign your Digital Guestbook or thanking them for being present
  • Run a free live streaming test to see how the app works

Optional: Add your Guests' email addresses so they are automatically notified when your event starts. They can also RSVP to achieve the same result.

  • Fully charge the live streaming device
  • Pack an extra battery or battery bank
  • Include your device cables and/or charger
