4 Reasons Why You Should Have A Wedding Video

  When you’re in the middle of planning the perfect wedding and struggling to stay within a budget, you might neglect hiring a professional wedding videographer thinking that a wedding video might be an overkill if you’re already getting wedding photos done. In truth, if a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth a thousand pictures.  Do not think that you can get by with footage captured on a smart phone. A wedding video by a professional videographer captures moments that may otherwise pass by in the blink of an eye in a cinematic, elegant and emotional way.   So if you’re deciding against hiring a wedding videographer for your big day, think again because:   A wedding video is a beautiful way to capture moments   Although a wedding takes months to plan, the event itself comes and goes in a matter of hours. You start the day by getting dressed and before you know it, you are walking down the aisle and saying “I do” and having your first dance as a married couple. Inevitably, some moments will be blurry and that’s a shame. Right there is perhaps the most persuasive argument for having a wedding video. It lets you capture moments so you don’t miss out at your own wedding.     Don’t miss anything   If you’re the bride, you’ll be the last one to walk down the aisle. Won’t you want to know later on what happened before you made your entrance like how the bridal party walk was? A wedding video makes this possible.     Videos are easy to share   Thirdly, a wedding video is easy to share on, for example, social media sites like Facebook and Instagram or with friends and family members who could not be there. After all, it’s not always easy to get everyone you love and care about to your wedding, especially if they are overseas.     Relive the day whenever you want   Then of course, having a wedding video means that you can relive your special day and all the emotions you felt over and over again.

6 Ways To Cut Your Wedding Costs

  If you are planning the perfect wedding, one thing you’ll notice is that weddings are really expensive. After all, a wedding involves booking a venue, ordering flowers, picking a band and catering for hundreds of people, depending on how big your family is and how many people you know from the different walks of life. Then of course, you have the wedding cake, wedding invitations, your wedding outfit and whatever accessories you’re planning to wear that day.   If money is tight, you’ll need to look for ways to trim your wedding budget! The first thing to consider is your guest list but if erasing people from your invite list is not an option, here are 6 ways you can lower your wedding cost.     Avoid Saturday night   A little known fact: Most people get married on Saturday night making it the most expensive day to tie the knot. If you want to cut your wedding cost, pick another day.     Choose a venue that’s already gorgeous   Here is the deal: A bland reception hall may be inexpensive but you’ll spend a bundle on flowers and decor. Pick a venue that’s full of prettiness already.     Keep your caterer in check   Your caterer is a salesperson. He or she is going to encourage you to spend big bucks on food nobody is going to eat. To reduce the cost of food, simplify your hors d’oeuvres and main course. Additionally, you can also drop the soup and use the wedding cake for its intended purpose, which is dessert.     Close the bar   Next consideration: Avoid an open bar. Remember that you’re planning a wedding and not staging the Mardi Gras. You don’t need to liquor everyone up. Just serve beer and/or wine. Alternatively, you can also offer a limited choice of cocktails.     Choose your wedding outfit carefully   Wedding outfits, in particular the bridal gown can empty your wallet. You need to be clever and either buy clothes that have already been tried on or snatch them up at discounted prices when they are on sale.     Hire...
