If you have seen one wedding video, you have seen them all - right? There are quite a few things you can do in order to make wedding videos more exciting. If you plan these events ahead of time, it will make it more fun for you and your guests what the videographer is shooting your video at your wedding reception. Plus, you will want to watch it over and over again for years to come.
Have a Second POV
One angle the entire time is going to be acceptable. However, it's only one option that you have available. You can also choose to have a second videographer at your wedding. This would allow multiple angles to be captured throughout your wedding. Consider how one camera could be facing the audience while the other is focused on you and your partner saying your vows.
It's the same with the reception. There could be multiple things going on throughout the time and you want as much of it captured as possible.
Schedule Guest Interviews
Your guests are at your wedding because they love you. They want to be a part of your big day. They might also have a fun anecdote to share about how you met your partner, how you were when you were young, or some funny story. Guest interviews can be captured on your wedding videos. It's a great way to have something fun to look back on many years from now.
You don't need to tell guests that they will be interviewed ahead of time. Let the videographer choose people at random. When you don't give people the chance to prepare, you get a more honest interview - and one that is sure to be more entertaining.
Choreograph a Fun First Dance
Your first dance can be whatever you want it to be. It's your wedding and no one is going to tell you that you can't do the dance you want to do. Maybe you want to take dance classes to learn how to do the waltz. Maybe you want to play a really silly song and have some fun choreographed moves. You can turn to YouTube to get some ideas as to what you want to do for your first dance.
How you dance will ensure your videos are entertaining. You can look back on the DVDs years from now to have a good laugh.
Invite a Flash Mob
Flash mobs are a lot of fun. If you have ever seen them at a mall or down the street, it puts a smile on your face. You could ask your guests to create a flash mob or you can bring in strangers to put it on. It will entertain you and everyone around you. Plus, it's going to spice up your wedding videos more than you could possibly imagine.
If you don't know how to make it work, talk to your entertainment company about it. A DJ will likely be able to make recommendations for you so you can get what you want.
Work with a Professional Wedding DJ
A professional wedding DJ will know how to keep the event alive. You want good music and you want to ensure that your guests are having a good time. DJs will know how to accomplish this for you. If you want your wedding videos to be worthy of watching five and 10 years from now, then make sure you choose a good DJ who knows how to keep it all fun and entertaining.
You only get one shot at making wedding videos because you only get one wedding. Work with the videographer to learn about what your options are. Let them take the artistic lead to produce something special for you.
