I said No.
When it came to having a video made of my wedding day, I said no to hiring a videographer.
But if you asked me what I would have done differently about my wedding, what would I say?
I would say making a budget can be overwhelming, especially when it’s for something so important.
And hiring a videographer may seem like it’s unnecessary, but if you were to ask me what I regret cutting from my wedding budget, I would say the wedding video.
So before you make any hasty decisions, consider the following things from someone who wishes that they had hired a wedding videographer.
Movement and Sound Make Things Better
The best days of our lives always fly by too quickly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t relive them.
A video would have captured the moment we said our vows, the toasts at our reception, the music we danced to, and the laughter of our friends and family when someone told a joke.
It’s moments like these that are hard to remember exactly how they happened. I can’t remember every detail, but a video could have remembered them for me.
If You Missed It
Weddings are busy. There are people everywhere and a lot of things happening. And I didn’t want to miss a second of it. But I couldn’t be everywhere at once.
A video would have captured the reaction of our family and friends the moment we said our vows and the anticipation as I walked down the aisle. A video could have allowed me to see my wedding from another perspective: as if I was one of our guests.
Something Easy to Share
You know all of those beautiful wedding videos you’ve had the privilege to watch? They are so easy to share, especially with those who may have missed the wedding. A video could have been easily shared, and no one would have had to wonder what our wedding might have been like. They would have experienced every moment of it. One of the best things about our wedding was sharing it with all of the people we care about, but a video would have lasted for all the years to come.
You won’t ever regret having too many memories, but you will regret not capturing them. Hiring a videographer may be hard to fit in the budget, but it will be worth it. It’s just something you can’t miss out on.
