Really, what do we know about videos - apart from the big one that you will get to see a few weeks after your wedding? Nothing, coz no one really experiments with that medium. That's why we decided to take it upon ourselves to get you a list of videos you need to make through out your wedding so you can pass it around and remember the moment without waiting for that super long one to reach home. Plus, these days no one comes home and asks you for the boring video, they want small edits, tiny glimpses into your day and the 'gist'. So why not make that bit creative?

These days, Save-the-Date cards are going the whole hog and now, they are even videos that tell you to if you please 'save-that-date'. So make it cool, ask for a few interesting ideas and make a nice 30-seconder with just a date so it can totally go out to all your BFFs. Save the larger time frames for bigger videos, but keep this one to less than a minute. 30 seconds and less is even better!
Wedding Video Invites
A natural progression from Save-the-Date, the wedding video invite is pretty much two people telling everyone else, the date, the time, the location and the RSVP details in a creative manner. This one can be a bit longer than 30 seconds and you can include reception and sangeet and mehendi edits and even personalise it for those you want to invite specially for each of these events.

Lip Dubs are the hottest thing to happen to wedding videos. Essentially you pick a song and then the entire wedding party sings along to different lines of the song to create one cohesive video that looks like an awesomely shot music video.
Same Day Video
This one's really a rage abroad but we are thinking India will catch up soon enough. Your videographer will shoot the entire wedding and then edit a short video into snippets so that you can show to your loved ones a short edit on stage at the reception. How fast can you do it? With Insta + Vine - why can't we?

A Stop-Motion Wedding Video
If you want to gather after the wedding with all your family members and have a little laugh over the events of the day or even if you want to display all pictures on social media that are #hashtagged in your name, then this stop-motion video is for you. Take all the hashtagged pics, ask a cousin to collect them and use an online software to make an album with some cued-in music. That's really cute!

The Trailer Video
If you want to give a little insight into the wedding video that up and coming, then this is the time to do it. Make a trailer, like a film and totally let it loose on your BFFs. The trailer can add a surprise element to things and can also, give a peek into the bigger picture. Trailers so so cool if they can make anyone bite their nails in anticipation to see the whole show.
2-Minute Wedding Video
Who wants to watch that long wedding video? Not us. Maybe the groom and bride and an assortment of family members. But these days, if you want to just show off your wedding, you just need a 2-minute snippet that you can pass on Whatsapp and Facebook. Two minutes = choicest happenings at the wedding with a special message thanking everyone for being part of the wedding. Cute!
Of course, you need to discuss all things with your videographer before-hand and get things done. Make him include all of them in the same package. But some of them, you might just want to try them out yourself or ask a helpful techy cousin. We got you a few resources to edit and work on your own videos.
