Don’t make the same mistake

Huffington Post has released a new article titled:

98 Percent of Brides Regret This Choice After Their Weddings

The writer talks about what she looks forward to about her wedding; her husband, her family and a BIG party. What she confesses is all of the details she missed because she didn’t hire a professional videographer to capture her wedding.

After the wedding, here is what I had to show for it:

  • Gorgeous photos
  • A preserved wedding gown
  • Stories from friends and family about it being the best party, not just wedding, they had ever attended

Cue the regret. Like most brides, I budgeted for photos, but not wedding video. Like 98 percent of brides who make that decision, I regretted not getting a wedding video.

She confesses is  HUGE regret

And photos just aren’t enough to hold on to years later.

She talks about the friends and family who were at the wedding, and the last time they saw one of her friends, was at her wedding.

Now let’s talk family and friends. Big family. Lots of friends. About 200 people flying in from all over the country. The award goes to Australia. It was the last family gathering for both of our grandmothers. The last one. No one wants to think about it, but it’s real. When else are you going to hear marriage advice from your grandmother. When else is she going to warn your husbands about your temper tantrums at the age of five?

It was also one of the last times we were to see one of my husband’s good friends. He died just a couple of years later in a snowmobile accident. We partied with him til 1am that night. Good times.


Bottom Line. Get a videographer to capture the ceremony and reception of your wedding, so you don’t regret it.
