Your wedding day is a train ride of events that doesn’t stop until your family and friends part at the reception. Many brides and grooms will say that their wedding day was almost a blur because it went so fast. And it is true! How can you or your SO possibly try to remember every moment on your wedding day when there is so much going on? It is practically impossible… but a wedding video makes it a little more possible.
A wedding video may be a must-have for some couples and “just an unnecessary, added expense” for other couples. We may be a little biased when we say that wedding videos are something every couple should invest in for their wedding. The video is the best way to encapsulate the spirit of your wedding day and one of the only wedding keepsakes that you, your SO and your families can have for years to come. Here are four reasons as to why investing in a wedding videographer is worth every penny.
1. You’re seeing your day through your loved ones’ eyes
On your wedding day, all eyes are on you, and your eyes are on your SO. You most likely won't be able to notice all of the little details that made up your day so the wedding video is the perfect opportunity for you to see how amazing everything looked. You’ll be able to watch everything through the eyes of your guest from the “I do” to the last dance.
2. You’ll be able to relive the memories over and over again
It will be you and your SO’s anniversary and what better way to spend it than to sit down together and pop in your wedding video. And every time you watch it you will notice something new; whether that be a detail in the wedding planning or an emotion that you didn’t remember happening.
3. You and your SO are the stars of the show!
Your wedding day is one of the few days in your life where you get to be the absolute center of attention and surrounded by all of your loved ones. All of those moments that feature you and your soon-to-be spouse are captured and video, beautifully edited and then sent to you to enjoy for years, and even generations, to come. What could be cooler than that?
4. Wedding videos are even better than the photos
The one thing that video will always have over photographs is that videos bring the moments back to life. The speech that your father said about you and your SO, the expressions and reactions of all your close family and friends, the way you looked dancing with your spouse, the celebration of walking down the aisle... we can keep going on about all of the different parts of your amazing day and the video showcases them all! Even though photographs are a beautiful keepsake of your special day, the wedding video has so much more to offer.
A video brings all of the special moments and memories to the screen in a way that photographs could never do. Even though a wedding videographer may just seem like an additional expense, you, your spouse and your family will have all the memories of your special day expressed in a wonderful film. Therefore, it is a lot better to invest in a wedding videographer and watch the video on occasion than to live with the regret of not having one.
