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?

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 Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
