If you are getting married, you really must seriously consider getting a wedding video. Wedding videos are something that you will cherish for years to come. No matter how badly you think the wedding video turns out, you will still value it. It is something to show your children and grandchildren someday. You will never regret the money you spent into getting a video of your wedding.
Not only will it be important to you to have a visual moving record of your wedding, but it will also be important for future generations. Wouldn't you love to see a video of your great grandparents getting married? If we had have the technology available, why not go for it? There is nothing to lose, other than your money! The money you spend will be worth it for the memories. You will be able to look at it any time you choose. You can show it to friends and family who were not able to attend your wedding ceremony. Pull it out on your anniversaries and look at it together with your spouse. At 5 years, at 10 years, and so on. You will be surprised to see how you've changed. How the styles have changed and how the world as you know it has changed.
When searching for someone to create a wedding video for you, make sure you spend the time to find someone that is reputable and cost effective at the same time. Follow up on their references. Take a look at some of their past work. Get a breakdown of all fees. Do they make stills from the video for you? Most importantly, get a back-up. Whether it be a friend who has a video camera or someone more proficient, make sure you have a back-up plan. If something should go wrong, such as the videographer not showing up, the camera malfunctioning, or the video getting erased in error, you will be glad of having someone else who has also videotaped your wedding. Even if the quality is not as good as a professional wedding video creator, it is certainly better than coming away from the most important day of your life with nothing.
Wedding videos typically tape several different aspects of the wedding event. Here are some things to make sure that your wedding video contains:
Before the Ceremony- bride and bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done- groom and groomsmen getting ready for the wedding- driving to the ceremony
The Ceremony- the vows- the first kiss- the pronouncement of husband and wife- the reception line
The Reception- the first dance- removing the garter- the food tables- the head table- the guest tables- parents of the bride and groom- the wedding party- the going away outfits- throwing of the bouquet- the getaway vehicle
In addition to getting the moments listed above on your wedding video, it is also nice to take a personal video camera along on your honeymoon. Take video footage of your honeymoon location, the honeymoon suite and general things you o on your holiday. This footage can be added to your wedding video library and will also be valued for the great memories you are able to recreate in your mind.
Again, wedding videos are a wonderful thing to have. You will in doubt not regret your decision to spend the money in getting a wedding video!
