Wedding Videography

I will say, this is one thing Brides put on the back burner due to budget constraints. As a planner, I say it is worth the expense. If you are still trying to decide here are some things to think about. The day of your wedding will go by faster than you think. It is a whirlwind of activity. You will be very busy taking photos, greeting guests, cake cutting, first dance.., you will not even see or be a part of much that goes on during the ceremony or the reception. A video will capture not only the big important moments but also those moments you missed or forgot about. It is something you will watch over and over again. Your kids will watch it. Therefore, with that said the big question is, “How does a videographer fit into my budget.” “How do I know what makes a good video that is worth paying for?”

Next Big Expense to tackle-Entertainment

Your DJ and/or entertainment are very important to the success of your wedding day. Your DJ can make or break the reception. Not only do they need to have a great personality and fresh ideas, they need to have a back up system. Ask the DJ about his or her experience. How many weddings have they done? What will they do if people stop dancing, can he or she motivate the crowd to return to the party? A DJ should also understand the type of music you enjoy. What type of crowd is he or she trying to entertain? Your DJ should also ask about your customs and family traditions. Knowing what is appropriate for you and your guests will make sure that everybody has a fun time during your reception. Price should not be the determining factor for finding a DJ. Quality of service and presentation should. Talk to your DJ about what he or she does. Ask him or her why they became a DJ. I will say it again, when a good DJ is invested in his or her trade, he or she will be invested in you and your wedding.
