The wedding video is a topic my fiancé and I have been contemplating for months as we are approaching our wedding day. The questions that come to mind are: Will we really watch our wedding video? Should we save the money and invest it in something else for our reception? Is it worth it to hire a videographer to capture every single moment of our wedding? The answer for us – ABSOLUTELY.
We’ve heard both sides – from you’ll never watch it, to you will watch it every anniversary to relive the day you became husband and wife. After listening to some advice from our friends and family, the one comment that has stuck in my mind is – “your wedding day comes and goes by so fast.” By having a wedding videographer, he or she may capture moments that you may not have seen. Videographers also have a unique way of telling your story. Your wedding video will help you remember how you felt when getting ready, show you and your husband reciting your wedding vows during the ceremony, and give you another glance at your friends and family as they enjoy the wedding reception.
As a bride-to-be, I can already picture the thousands of things that will be running through my mind, from the morning I wake up, to the moment we say “I do,” to the time we leave our reception. With the months spent planning for the wedding, I can only imagine how hard it will be to treasure every detail and to let it all sink in. Of course, we’ll have our photos that will help cherish memories of our special day. But, for us as an added bonus, it will be nice to look back years from now to watch the fairytale that started our new life together.
