I am in the process of condensing my 2 hour wedding day video into 2 shorter videos (one that is 10-12 minutes and another that is 3-5 minutes). I want to play the shorter one at our AHR and the longer one will be for me and the family since quite frankly I was bored sitting through the whole two hours and I was the bride!! wink.gif However, I was wondering what song or songs you used for your video. I am thinking about using our first dance song which was Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" and Michael Buble's "Everything" but I need one or two more options. Thoughts? Suggestions?

we're using a song called "first day of my life" by bright eyes -- check out the video below to hear it (video is weird, but its a great song) - this is also the song we are using for our first dance.

 

YouTube - Bright Eyes "First Day Of My Life"

Thanks for the suggestion Maura. What a unique sound. I was just picturing you dancing to the song at your wedding with the breeze and ocean in the background. How cool!

I didn't know how many songs our videographer needed so i gave him a bunch on a cd in order of preference.

 

this isn't the order (i don't have that saved) but they are

DMB & santana- love of my life

david grey - this year's love

maroon 5 - she will be loved

weezer - island in the sun

RHCP - soul to squeeze

DMB - crush

incubus - stellar

 

we had all of these songs playing with our post ceremony mix.

 

Who was your videographer? Mine was mike cantarell. I don't know how long my video will be. I'm hoping it's a file I can trim down into a short thing for the AHR. I want to combine the video with pictures.

 

I have found when I'm trying to set pictures to the beat of a song, something with hard notes like a piano works really well.

I just read over your first post. I hope to do the same thing. I want one edit that is the length of a song. Then I want to make a slightly longer edit for family.

I am also going to incorporate pics and then have the songs fade out as we actually say our vows, etc. I have this grand concept but we will see how well it works out!! Thanks for the suggestions. I love DMB! I may use some latin songs since my husband is hispanic. I really like Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor (Juanes) and Tu Amor Me Hace Bien (Marc Anthony). Hmmmm. So many choices but I also want everything to hit just right! What a project.

that sounds a lot like my grand concept. But, I still don't know if my video file is editable.

YouTube - Levi and Christinas Wedding

this was my inspiration but I also want to fade out the song so you can hear parts of the ceremony.

I hope my video comes in in time for this to be a weekend project pinkie.gif

what program are you using?

it's funny. about a year ago that video was my inspiration but I didn't know if I'd be able to do it. i just rewatched it & realized it's totally doable. it looked so difficult before, but now that I have some experience with movie maker it doesn't look hard.

    • Hi Kiara, Glad you are here. There will be no shortage of answers and suggestions here. First of all tell me, are you planning to have a grand destination wedding? I want you to figure out with these questions for better understanding- 1. What you want? 2. What you don't want? 3. How big is your guest list? There are so many factors that will come into play. If you want to make it grand then I would personally suggest you to take wedding loans bad credit. If you have a good credit score then cheers! That may be a go to step to finance your wedding." 
    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
