If you’ve done your research on whether you should hire a wedding videographer, you already know that the main pros of a having a wedding video are playing back your day in motion and being able to listen to the audio. While the reasons below might not pop into your head immediately, they are definitely great points to consider when making your decision. We turned to our friends at NST Pictures to share some unexpected reasons to get a wedding video.
1. Your failing memory
Think about it: how much do you really remember from your freshman year of college?
As the years fly by, more memories are packed into our brains and some older ones
fade. Your wedding day is a major life event, so it’s going to have a solid place in
your mind, but the little details are another story. Only your wedding video will help
you recall what your best friend said during her toast that made the room erupt
2. Guests who couldn’t attend
If you have some key players who can’t attend, like an elderly grandmother or a brother who is fighting for our country, or your event is out of town, a wedding video with all of the action and excitement of the day is the perfect way to make your loved ones feel like they didn’t miss a thing.
3. Remember people as they were
We are always growing and changing. A snapshot can show you a split second of
what life was once like, but a video can take you back to that time. One day, that
handsome guy in the tux who is full of youthful energy is going to be someone’s
grandfather. Life is an hourglass, so capture every minute before it fades away!
4. Archive for the future
Fast forward to your 8-year anniversary. You are frantically trying to get ready to go
out before the babysitter arrives, when your little girl comes into your bedroom and
says, “Mommy, what was your wedding like?” Think of how much it will mean to
both of you when you can sit down and watch your wedding video together.
