There are few events bigger than a wedding. And whether you’re telling the story of your engagement, the wedding day itself, or an anniversary, video lets your audience see love bloom and grow. To help you share your own unique love story, we’ve put together a list of 26 wedding video ideas.
Wedding webpage video: Help family and friends get to know both of you as a couple. Craft a story that shares details about who you both are and how you fell in love. Check out our our how-to guide for wedding slideshows for inspiration.
Bridal party intros: Guests may not know some of the important players on your wedding day, and a quick video on your wedding website explaining who’s who can help. It’s also a lot less painful than asking bridesmaids and groomsmen for a written bio.
Bridal shower recap: Thank guests who attended your bridal shower—and share a recap for those who couldn’t attend—in one, social-ready video.
Bachelor or bachelorette party recap: Unless you want what happened in Vegas to stay in Vegas, creating a recap video can be a fun way to let your friends relive your wild, pre-wedding adventures—or just provide you with future blackmail material.
Wedding FAQ: Share all the details about the venue, hotels, and registries in a video that can be emailed out or posted on your website.
Bridesmaid or groomsman gift: Give everyone in your bridal party a personalized video thank you to show your appreciation for their help and their friendship.
Documentary-style video: You’re documenting your wedding, so make it feel like a documentary! You don’t need elaborate black-and-white footage. Grab the closest smartphone and start shooting.
Guest interviews: Sit down Mom and Dad, siblings, other family, and friends to preserve everyone’s well wishes for your wedding day.
Small camera wedding bouquet: For a twist on the typical wedding-day video, stick a small camera, like the GoPro used in the video below, into a bridesmaid’s wedding bouquet and catch the action for an entirely new angle.
Drone video: If you know someone with a drone they can use, take advantage and get sweeping, cinematic footage of your wedding party and your venue.
Photo booth: Don’t let all those cute photo booth images go to waste. Put them together in a fast-paced video and share it with your guests.
Video booth: Elevate the typical photobooth with a video booth. You can even create one of your own by setting up a mobile device and letting guests share heartfelt wishes with the bride and groom—or just get silly with props.
Ceremony video for the reception: Drag and drop photos from the ceremony right into Animoto to quickly create a slideshow video featuring photos from the wedding ceremony. Then play your video on a screen at the reception.
