Where does your wedding video stand in your priority list? If you're like most people, it's probably somewhere near the bottom.
It's one of those things that'd be nice, but is the first thing to go when the budget starts getting tight (okay, maybe releasing white doves is the first thing to go, but the wedding video isn't far behind).
But don't worry. Almost everyone makes this same mistake.
As the bride-to-be, you've spent your entire life waiting for and planning your wedding day. And as the groom-to-be, you may not have spent your entire life thinking about it, but let's admit that it's crossed your mind from time to time.
There are very few days in your life where you will invest so much thought, time and energy. Days that culminate with such overwhelming joy and happiness, celebrating with your closest friends and family.
But what happens after that amazing day, as the two of you ride off into the sunset?
The memories and that fantastic wedding afterglow fade with time.
You'll always remember being at your wedding. That goes without saying. But short of having a photographic memory, it's just not possible for you to remember all the little things that made that day so incredibly special.
But guess what? A wedding video can.
Video encapsulates that vibrant energy, that emotion. It packages that wonderful emotional high.
While wedding photos will preserve certain moments in time, a wedding video transports you back in time. It's like being there all over again. Reliving each of those incredible moments. A skilled videographer can help ensure those precious moments and that afterglow of the emotional high are with you for the rest of your life.
So, how important is a wedding video in your list of priorities?
In the end only you can decide.
