Wedding season is in full swing, and if you have a wedding in your family, you’re likely stressed out. Wedding planning is no joke, after all. So why not take a break and do something fun — which is still wedding related. By now, you must have seen the megatrend of video unfold everywhere around you. It is the best medium to convey any message, and adding video to your wedding entourage will only make it more memorable.
Ways to add video to your wedding
Even if you don’t want to completely replace the traditional paper wedding invitation card with a video invitation, sending a video to your guests before they receive a formal card is better than calling each person and announcing the event. It’s creative, fun, and makes people excited to join you on your special day. And the best part is that making a video invitation is as exciting as receiving one!
When your wedding day starts getting nearer and nearer, reminiscing about your story together is only natural. And sharing that story via video makes your friends, guests, or other social followers join in the love and root for your happy married life. If your guests are familiar with your story and feel emotionally invested (which video is perfect for), they would be at the wedding for you and not just for the food. Which is something to think about, don’t you think?
When your big day has come and gone and you have your hands full with all the wedding photos, instead of posting individual photos on social media, turn them into a wedding album slideshow. This would save you from becoming ‘that person’ and still showcase all your favorites. Making a wedding album slideshow also helps the people who couldn’t attend the wedding feel like they were a part of it.
