DIY Wedding Video can be so incredibly personal and so much fun… and yet… aren’t you putting your guests to work when you ask them to film your wedding video?
When you go to weddings, do you ever see people taking photos and video? All the time. Do you think anyone begged them to do this? Nope. They are capturing moments because these memories are priceless and once-in-a-lifetime! What do they do with it? At best, they put it up on Facebook. The bride almost never gets a copy. Ugh, and what good is it to get an email with a video attachment? The video file is soooo tiny that you can’t do anything with it.
WeddingMix allows your friends who love taking video to actually contribute to your wedding video. They can use the app to take video with their iPhone and still post it to Facebook, but YOU get a copy of the HD version of the video files as well!
Or, instead of using the WeddingMix cameras, they can use ours. After the wedding, you simply send the cameras back in the prepaid mailer. No need to try and get your friends to burn the video files to a disc and mail to you! And best of all, you get an edited wedding video in the end.
So, when should they take video? As soon as you place your order, you can send them a login code, to contribute clips to your wedding video right from their iPhone. Why would they do that? Well, what about getting video from your trip to try on dresses? Or the cake tasting? Or rehearsal dinner? If you’re really adventuresome, you can include clips from the bachelorette party.
Wait a minute! But aren’t I putting a lot of pressure on my friends to get the “perfect shot” and make sure they don’t miss anything? You want your guests to have fun. This is a party after all. If it’s that important to you that your video be absolutely perfect, then you should probably hire a videographer as well. We work with plenty of brides who have both a videographer and WeddingMix. This will give you the peace of mind of knowing that you can actually hear all your vows. And your guests can concentrate on the fun stuff, like telling embarrassing stories about you for your wedding video. 🙂
How will my friends know what to video? We ship a card with video tips and a list of fun interview questions with every camera order. If you simply can’t wait, you can download the tips using the link on the upper right of this page.
