Childhood Memories

Start it on the best note by bringing in their childhood memories. It is undoubtedly the best thing that you can do for them. Include parallel images of both of them while they were growing up. It is sure to rekindle nostalgia in them and will take them down memory lane. This will fill them with laughter and tears while reliving those happy moments and remembering that time together. Later you can collate all those photos and videos where they have been spending time with each other. They won't be expecting this transition, and you can observe their reaction all this while.

Hometown Love Story

The couple can be childhood sweethearts, and you can use this to depict their love story through a memorable video. Set a theme that perfectly portrays their love story. Add their best clips and pictures together of that time. You can make it more interesting with pictures from their most cherished first date. Top it all with their favorite restaurant or ice cream with their favorite music in the background. Showcase the best moments from their life in a video that will be remembered for years. Show how their love evolved through these years. There are endless possibilities to make them smile with this video on their wedding day.

The Current Family

It is another great theme to base your video on. You can bring all their family members together in one frame and curate an everlasting video of their togetherness. Don't forget to include the pets in your video. Make an affectionate video showing their love and support for each other. You can also ask the families to make small clips about the couple separately. They can share their fondest memories with them and why they are excited about this wedding. Collate the best clips together to make a heartfelt wedding video that will be treasured for years.

Milestone Anniversary

If the couple has been dating for a long, you can pick their transition over the years and compile it into an interesting video. This will make them realize how far they have come together and how long a journey is still left ahead of them. It will only double their love and support for each other and fill them with joy and happiness. It will make them enjoy their happy wedding even more. Also, you can add their favorite song in the background, which will be the perfect icing on the cake.

Mix The Memories

Another great thing to do is include the couple's best photos in the video and take them down memory lane. Instead of arranging them in order, mix them all randomly. Make a slideshow and play it in slow motion at the venue. The couple will get to see their different photos, capturing different moments, and reminisce the story behind them. It will make them emotional and happy at the same time for the love bond they share with each other.

Execute these ideas to surprise the couple on their big day. Use the Celebrate video-making tool to make the best wedding video that will be cherished for years.
