In May, a UK couple decided to exchange their vows virtually. Although the two stood together wearing headsets inside a local café, their avatars were married in a virtual dance hall underneath a glittery disco ball as red lava filled the skies overhead. Guests were able to join the ceremony through their own headsets, creating guest avatars that clapped and sent hearts through the screen. Before you think of this as a way to save major bucks, keep in mind that each headset cost $2,531. While virtual reality may be accepted for the ceremony, two things that guests don’t particularly appreciate sacrificing in the real world—food and drinks.
