My wife is from Paraguayan, and I am from France. We dreamt of flying with our family and friends from France and Paraguay to Dubai to attend our wedding. However, the Covid and legal hurdles played spoilsport. That is when we decided to take things to the metaverse. But I am really nervous. The biggest challenge we face is of connectivity. If anyone’s computer glitches or has a connectivity problem, we will have an issue. That is why we have recorded backups of everything, including our vows. But we are keeping our fingers crossed that everything goes as planned.Florian Ughetto
