Capture More Than Just Wedding Day

I have a bride who's soon-to-be mother-in-law is going to be unable to make it to see her son marry the woman of his dreams.  And as a gift to her groom, she plans on hiring a videographer to capture the day so that his mother can see all the festivities.  Her heartfelt story got me to thinking about how can couples personalize the videos more so than just capturing the ceremony and reception moments.

Save The Date trailer:
Instead of using a paper or magnet Save the Date, consider asking your videographer to create a 30 second trailer that could be e-mailed to your invited guests.

Proposal Story:
Ask your videographer to capture your proposal story on film.  You both could share that special day individually or together, and top it off with a funny Q&A segment.

Well Wishes:
During the reception, allow your guests to say some happy (and funny) words to you on camera.

Clips of the celebratory events before and after the wedding day
(engagement party, rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, post-wedding day brunch):
Don't just stop with the ceremony and reception, ask the videographer to capture all of the wedding events leading up to and after your special day.

And if the videographer and photographer are not from the same company, make sure to introduce them.  Having some of your engagement photos and wedding day photos intertwined within the video can truly be divine!

Until next time...WEDologize!
