Choosing the right wedding video songs is important to ensure that your wedding video is worth watching over and OVER again. The music should fit into the moment and enhance the emotions captured on video.
Three things to keep in mind are Setting The Mood, Telling a Story, and Finding Inspiration.
Setting the Mood:
One of the most important aspects to consider when choosing songs for your wedding video is to have the song fit the mood. Brides may not realize this, but the music in your wedding video basically sets the story and mood for the entire movie. While most would agree that something soft and romantic is a good choice, which section of the movie you’re watching and also on how soft and romantic the music is.
Telling a Story:
Any movie, no matter how big or small is meant to tell a story. While this is fairly, it is so important that it needs to be repeated. Remember that after the actual wedding day, any videographer will have hours and hours of footage to sort through. There is a story in that footage and it’s up to you to tell that story. The music you choose will set the tempo and pace of the story, so it’s necessary to at least mention the major parts of the story to know how they all fit together.
Now that you know some of the overall concepts to keep in mind, let’s find ways to look for inspiration when hunting for your perfect wedding video soundtrack. Spend a lot of time thinking about which songs will be used and how you want to tell the story. And spend a great time researching music and finding inspiration.
