You have been planning your destination wedding for months and it’s finally time to get married in Belize! The dress is ready, the venue is booked, DJ is booked, Photographer is booked but wait… what about your wedding video? You might think pictures will tell the entire story but you’ll be surprised. So many good pictures will be taken but it just won’t be the same. Let’s avoid the need for a “do-over” button and take a look at 7 reasons you’ll want to budget for your Belize Wedding Video.
1. Video means you get to hear voices and mannerisms
Sure, your photos will look amazing but wouldn’t you want to hear that funny speech your Maid of Honor gave or that one joke that made you choke on your lobster? What about your personal vows? You’ll definitely want to replay those memories and show them to your family members that just couldn’t make it.
2. You can pause and replay the most special moments of your life
Most videographers offer long documentary cuts of the ceremony and speeches so you can listen to your vows and speeches over and over again. You’re in Belize, you definitely want to get every second on video, not just frozen frames.
3. You can show your kids! Or… your dog that you consider as your kid
Do you remember seeing pictures of your parents’ wedding or maybe even your grandparents’ wedding and thinking you would really want to see more. Getting a video means your kids and grandkids can see it from beginning to end.
4. Everything happens so fast, you might not see some things but your videographer will
As a bride, you wish you could see your Bridesmaids walk in or how your cocktail or reception looked like when you were off taking photos. Your wedding video can have all those memories saved for you.
5. It’s BELIZE!
You and your guests are flying many many miles to get here for your very special wedding day. Your ceremony at the beach, Mayan Ruins or a private secluded area in Belize will be something you want to re-watch and re-live for years to come.
6. Pictures don’t capture the in-between moments
Wedding photographs are really important. We won’t deny that but actually being able to hear the emotion in your guests’ voice while giving a speech or their laughter is truly priceless. Most cellphone cameras or consumer camcorders are not able to capture in the same quality footage as professional video cameras so it’s definitely worth hiring a videographer to get the best possible footage and audio.
It’s the happiest day of your life and you’re in the Caribbean with all the people you love. You might think photos are enough but after the day is over and everyone flies back home, you’ll wish you got a video of the first dance you rehearsed for months or your dad’s hilarious speech or grandparents’ last family gathering. Years later, you’ll have a video of your destination wedding at a little country called Belize and you won’t regret a single thing.
