You’ve picked the venue, booked the DJ, hired the photographer, and you may think you have everything sorted out for your wedding day. But if you haven’t hired a wedding videographer yet, you might be wrong. Many couples who didn’t hire a videographer for their weddings regret that they didn’t.
While professional photographers capture many of the special moments on their own, a video can compile all of those memories with the essential details for you to rewatch for years to come.
Here are some reasons as to why you should get a videographer:
The Wedding Video Might Not Be What You Think
The camera won’t be all in your face the whole day or night. In fact, the job of a wedding videographer is to embrace more of a documentary-style way of filming. The video can be taken in a variety of different styles and it can focus on the details of the event.
The Videographer Can Capture Sounds
Of course, with video, there is sound. You can playback the footage of your vows or the tears of joy from your bridal party seeing you for the first time in your dress, or even the cheer from the guests as you walk down the aisle hand in hand for the first time as a married couple. It creates a different kind of memory for you to look back on that your photos can’t.
The Video Won’t Be Hours Long
Most wedding videos are 3 to 5 minutes long and play the best highlights of the event. They mainly capture and include shots of the venue, the getting ready process, footage from the ceremony, and even some of the reception.
Videos Are Great for In-between Moments
Photographers can take posed and candid shots, but when it comes to everything in between those moments, you will need a videographer. There is no posing involved so there’s no need to worry about looking awkward.
Planning a wedding can be a long process, and there are quite a few things to consider during the planning process. One of them is the venue where you’ll have the wedding. While many people might plan on having it at a church, event hall, farm, in their backyard, or on a beach, not many people consider having it at Walt Disney World. However, not only will this bring you and your wedding guests excitement, but it also comes with a few surprising perks.
Disney World has more than 100 locations that you can choose from to have both your ceremony and welcome dinner. Most of these options are quite affordable; however, the cost ranges, and of course, Cinderella’s castle is the most expensive one on the list.
Here are just three of the many surprising perks of having your wedding at Disney World:
1. Request Food From Any Part of Disney
Most venues will allow for 100% customizable menus when it comes to the food. You can go for a standard choice and make your modifications as needed or choose something completely customized from the beginning.
An example modification to a standard food choice would be picking the Mickey-shaped waffles and having them be an action station. An action station means that a chef will prepare them in front of you and have guests choose their toppings to be added. This can be done for crepes, omelets, and more.
Plus, chefs can be asked to re-create family recipes and even cook non-Disney food as requested.
2. Guests Can Ride in an Empty Park
For an additional cost, your guests can embark on different events after the reception. A popular option is the “Ride Mix-in” which allows the wedding guests to go on a private ride right after the welcome dinner. With Flight of Passage, you can have your guests escorted to the ride of your choice and have no wait time.
3. Disney Planners Do Everything
Disney World has event planners that will take care of the entire planning process for you. They’ll work with your budget and make sure that you don’t go over and even finalize all, the details. If something goes wrong, the planners typically already have a solution before contacting you to let you know.
