What to Say in a Wedding Video Message

The Celebrate Team

When celebrating the union of two souls in matrimony, there's no shortage of heartfelt emotions and warm wishes. 

But how can you truly celebrate a wedding? What comes to mind when you think of meaningful and heartfelt wedding wishes? Well, imagine the magic of these wishes being conveyed through wedding video messages you can use to relive the big day over and over and over again. 

If you’re a guest or part of the wedding party, recording a video for the happy couple is a great way to share memories and well wishes that the bride and groom can cherish forever. 

But when it comes to video messages, finding the right words to convey your love, joy, and best wishes in a wedding video message can sometimes be a challenging task. Whether you're a close friend or a family member, this is your guide to crafting the perfect wedding video message.

Why do Couples Create a Wedding Video Guestbook for Video Messages?

Wedding Fun Fact 1: Did you know that the first recorded evidence of marriage ceremonies uniting one woman and one man dates back to about 2350 B.C. in Mesopotamia? It's an ancient institution that has stood the test of time.

Wedding Fun Fact 2: In the month leading up to their wedding, Tujia brides cry for an hour each day. Ten days into this ritual, the bride's mother joins in, and ten days after that, the grandmother adds her tears. Eventually, other female family members join this emotional chorus. It's a poignant symbol of the journey to matrimony.

So, when you consider an institution that has lasted for over 4,372 years and involves such heartfelt traditions, it's clear that it deserves to be celebrated with the utmost love and respect – and, of course, a lot of fun! 

Use Celebrate.buzz’ Video Guestbook feature to Capture Wedding Video Messages from Guests

While a traditional card is one way to share your sentiments with the happy couple, why not take it a giant step further and give them the gift of a video message? If they’re not already doing a Video Guestbook, you can even take the reins by gifting one to them so they can capture all the heartfelt moments on their big day. 

By having guests at the wedding involved, immediate family, extended relatives, close friends, and others in attendance can leave a heartwarming message for the bride and groom. Each clip becomes part of a heartfelt, merged video montage.

These contributions can include warm wedding congratulations, amusing guest messages, personal notes, memorable group messages, marital advice from those already married, and more.

And it’s easy! You don't have to be a professional videographer to create a memorable wedding video gift for the happy couple. In fact, you don't even need to be tech-savvy! In three simple steps, you can create a cherished group wedding video featuring messages from all the guests in attendance who celebrated their big day.

  • Once you set up the event page through Celebrate.buzz, print out the QR Code Poster so guests can easily scan them at the reception. 
  • Then, once they scan them, guests can record and upload their heartfelt, congratulatory, or silly messages. The best part? They don’t need to create an account or download any apps.
  • Once you've collected all the wedding video messages, simply drag and drop them into place and hit a button to merge them into one amazing video.

If you'd like, you can also add some creative touches like music and photos to make the video extra special. The entire process takes just 15 minutes from start to finish, and it's user-friendly. The only thing that might require some patience is waiting for all the guests’ heartfelt messages to come in!

Wedding Video Ideas

To create a memorable wedding video, it's important to establish themes that guide your contributors. This creative process can be quite enjoyable, and while there are popular themes to consider, don't hesitate to explore unconventional ones. Here are some suggestions:

  • Choose Good Music: Choose meaningful background music that resonates with the couple's story.
  • Welcome Them to the Family: Include a moment of welcoming the new member into the family.
  • Funny Stories: Ask everyone to share some funny or sweet stories about the couple, the kind that brings out their personalities and adventures together.
  • Marriage Hacks: Invite the experienced folks to give their best marriage advice – you know, the secrets to a happy and long-lasting marriage.
  • Best Moments: Tell people to talk about their all-time favorite moments with the bride and groom, the ones that still make them smile.
  • Dreamy Future: Get everyone to dream a little and talk about what they hope the couple's future will be like. It's like sending them good vibes for what lies ahead.
