What You Will Remember From Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day typically happens in such a blur that it’s a wonder if you remember any of it at all. Think about it; between the dancing, the alcohol, the family and friends and the crazy emotions, it’s a wonder you even remember where you are throughout the day. But as it turns out, there are a few things that you end up remembering, and we’ve decided to list them for you, for your convenience.

1.) The transportation from the ceremony to the reception. Whether you took a limo, a horse-drawn carriage or even walked to the reception site, this is one of the most vivid memories for many couples. Think about it; it’s the first moment right after you’ve officially been announced as a betrothed couple that you are alone. The experience has even been described as time stopping; it’s quite, you hold hands, take a deep breath and then begin the second part of your day: the reception.

2.) The moment you first see each other. Both you and your spouse will not only remember exactly what you and your soon-to-be spouse were both wearing on your wedding day, but also exactly how you both felt upon first sight of each other. “Seeing her in her dress for the first time was something I thought I was ready for,” explains Greg. “But I had no idea how happy I would be to see her. I just lost it.”

3.) The unique distractions. There are so many emotions you need to control on your big day, many people create unique distractions to keep from crying. “I didn’t want to ruin all my professional makeup,” explains Madison, “so I started thinking about what my dogs were doing at home and how excited I was to eat a piece of wedding cake. I don’t remember much of what the Rabbi said while I was up there, but it worked!”

4.) The inside jokes. There are so many little things that are between just you and your fiancé. Whether it’s a little look from across the room as soon as your uncle starts in with his wedding speech, or a couple clever remarks you’ve both added into your vows for a little amusement between the two of you. The little jokes and quirks are part of what makes you such a perfect couple, and they are also some of the things you’ll remember for the next 30 years to come.

Suzie describes the end of the limo ride; “As soon as the limo pulled up to the reception hall, Brian announced ‘21st Floor: Menswear.’ It’s one of his favorite lines from the movie Liar Liar, and it still makes me laugh when he says it.”

5.) The morning after. The morning after is one of the happiest moments for most couples. “You’re very aware that this is the first day of your new life together,” says Tom. Anna had a similar reaction: “ I couldn’t wait to introduce him to people as my husband,” she said.

Tips for Hiring Your Wedding Videographer

Posted on

When it comes to things that you should budget for in your wedding, your photographer and your videographer should be at the very top of that list. They are the ones responsible for the safekeeping of your wedding memories. When you look 30 years down the road, you aren’t going to be able to remember every single detail of your wedding, but a video and some photographs will bring it all back in no time.

Of course, as with every wedding vendor, there are a few tips to doing it right.

1.) Get a jump on it. Everyone knows that in this business, the best wedding vendors are the ones that get booked the fastest, so don’t wait until the last minute or all you’ll have to choose from is the random guy that no one has ever heard of or your little cousin with a handheld camcorder. In addition, many wedding videographers offer similar packages to many wedding photographers. If you book them early enough, a save-the-date or reception video might be included along with your wedding video.

2.) Ask to see examples of their work. You’d be surprised how many people don’t take the time to watch a few clips of other couples’ wedding videos before settling on a videographer. Just as with any other wedding vendor, you need to see their portfolio in order to get a good idea of whether or not you will be pleased with their work.

3.) Get a list of callable references. References are going to be your best bets to learn everything you need to know. You’ll want to ask if they videographer was professional, polite, and made their subjects feel comfortable being videoed, if they showed up on time and stayed until the promised hour and if they succeeded in catching all of the important aspects of the wedding on video. You’ll also want to ask how intrusive they were when videoing; someone who barges their way up the aisle alongside you is going to be a real thorn in your side on your wedding day.

4.) Make sure they use HD. Many companies offer HD, but not all HD is the same. They should be using the most modern HD cameras with 1080p resolution. Of course if you are looking for a vintage or film grain look for certain aspects of your wedding, ask if they are able to do that sort of thing.

5.) Find someone that matches your personality. Your wedding videographer is going to have to look through hours and hours and hours and hours of wedding footage before determining what moments should be kept and which ones can be edited out. If you choose a wedding videographer that has different than you of what is ‘important’, you might end up with a wedding video full of cake close-ups and ceremony shots rather than one that recorded your brother performing some of his famous moves on the dance floor.
