The Wedding Video: New Ways to Wish Couples a Happy Ever After

Share this post:

Wedding videos make some guests nervous because they’d have to come up with a message. It’s not always simple to wish the happy couple “congratulations” or bless them with an advice. It’s not simple because maybe you want to convey something better to be memorable.

The beauty of doing video messages today is having access to technology. Plugged-in weddings, which encourage guests to use social media to share what’s happening at the event, use a range of tech. From drones that capture the full scale of the wedding to interactive invitations, innovations can be built into a celebration.

And you can apply the same principle with your video wedding message.

What to Say

Talk about the future. This is when you start your message with something like: “It’s the first day of the rest of your lives.” You may even play up the years ahead by comparing what their life would be like soon to what it was before.

How to Say it

If the couple has a plugged-in wedding and no videographer, use a video app.

What to Say

Tell the couple’s story, and liken it to a popular romantic movie. You could open with, “When Barry met Sandy, it wasn’t love at first sight . . .” and elaborate from that point on.

Yes, borrow a line from the movie and commit it to memory.

A story is great way to open your message because it keeps viewers hooked. They’d want to know your version of the story, or the couple may want to relive how they first met.

How to Say it

You may even want to work with the wedding video service, specifying how to present your message. They can take a scene from the movie you mentioned, and cut that with your message. It should make for an interesting presentation.

What to Say

General congratulations work just as well as unique messages because their short and easily understood.

Some go-to phrases are:

  • “Wishing you a long and happy marriage!”
  • “Best wishes for a fun-filled, loving life together.”
  • “May the love you share today be as strong and passionate as the years go.”
  • “Thank you for letting us share this blessed day as you start your life together”
  • “We’re so happy you found each other. Congratulations on your wedding day!”

Simple. Short. Thoughtful. How you say it will make a world of difference.

It’ll take some effort — and skill — when you try some animation. The stop-motion wedding video is a trend, but you’ll have to ask the videographer if they do this service. And you’d have to work it out with them on how to do it. It may be an additional cost, so make sure you arrange payment on your end.

Instead of saying your video message. You could simply write it on a surface (provided you can erase it later on), the invitation, or using signs around the reception that spell out what you want to say.

Heartfelt and Short

Whatever your message conveys and however you say it, the whole idea is to make it heartfelt and brief. Couples do appreciate flair and creativity because of the effort behind it. But your video message would have greater impact with sincerity. Deliver it well. And don’t stress out over it.
