Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. After all, you’ve found the love of your life and you’re preparing to spend the rest of your lives together. In such a special season, it’s important to document the joys and moments that you’ll want to remember forever. Between the dress fittings and cake tastings, there are so many major details that make the day what it is. Knowing this, consider these five great ways you can create and document the story of your special day.
Make a Musical Playlist
Music is the language that everyone can understand. If you’re a lover of music, musical documentation of the day might be really amazing. If you’re hiring a live band, set up a recording system that captures the audio from the day. Furthermore, you can even record the audio from the actual ceremony and reception.
Create a Memory Box
At the end of the night, ask guests to write down their favorite moments of the day. You can even ask them to fill out a quick questionnaire. Ask guests what was the favorite song they danced to and what was their favorite moment of the day. You can ask them about what they could see by looking at the two of you when you were exchanging vows and other sweet yet unusual questions. Have guests place the surveys in a memory box and you two can read them on your first year anniversary.
Use Professional Video and Photography Services
You always want to get visual memories of the day. Partner with a company like Eivan’s Photo Inc. and allow them to capture the special day with amazing photography and videography. Gather a few ideas about how you’d like the day to be captured and make sure you express that to the professionals. Once there’s great communication, you can trust them to bring your vision to life.
Give Guests Disposable Cameras
It’s always cool to see the wedding from the eyes of a guest. As guests first enter for the ceremony, handout disposable cameras. Ask them to take a few pictures throughout the day of various details and people that catch their attention.
Create a Vlog
Both you and your spouse can capture your excitement and joy through your own vlog. Record messages when you wake up and talk for a minute about how you’re feeling. Do a quick vlog before you get out of the limo to enter the church. Do another vlog before the two of you enter the reception. The vlogs don’t have to be longer than a minute, but it’s a sweet and intimate way to capture your emotions throughout one of the biggest days of your life.
As you create these amazing memories with your family and friends, don’t forget to enjoy the moments as they happen. So many couples admit that their wedding day zoomed by. As you absorb the moments as they come, you’ll be able to fully savor this special day forever.
