Wedding Videos: What You Need To Know...

Wedding videos are wonderful--and every bride-to-be should have one! Just think of watching it with your future children. And just think of the future. Turn it on and everyone present will always be alive and well and with you!

I saw an Internet post today that asked how long a wedding video should be--and I have to say, that most of them that I've seen are too long... Look at it this way: You go to the movies to see a feature film that lasts about two hours. During that time you watch a movie that features the entire history of a family--through generations.

By contrast, a wedding is a four- to five-hour event. Should a wedding video be longer than a full-length, Hollywood movie?

Should a wedding video last longer than a Hollywood movie? Some do, which is why you need a "highlights' tape".

Watching Wedding Videos: Has This Happened to YOU?

You go to a friend's home, who is recently married, and naturally the couple want you to watch their wedding video. It goes like this:

"Come on, Beth, speed it up... Paul and Sue don't want to watch the entire ceremony... Or we've had enough of that drunk, Uncle Albert... speed it up."

The entire evening is spent watching a video with your friend's fingers on the remote control.

So what's the solution?

Make sure your videographer gets you a "highlights' tape".

Get a Highlights' Tape..

The "highlights" tape (as they're called) is a 30 minute recap of the entire wedding and reception showing pertinent highlights of the wedding like the processional, vows, and recessional--along with pertinent parts os the reception: first dance, bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc.

It's been my experience that brides and grooms who get highlights' tapes utilize them the most. And I think you can see why...
