Video Your Great Gatsby Wedding

The 1920′s are back?  With the upcoming release of the blockbuster movie, “The Great Gatsby” starring Leonardo DiCaprio brides are finding themselves in love with feathers, boas and strings of pearls.  Because of that, they’re incorporating 1920 fashion and style into their 2013 wedding.

Here are a few tips for pulling off a Great Gatsby themed wedding:

Start with your invitations.  – Colors of gold and classic black are the order of the day.  Think sophistication!

Rent a mansion instead of a ballroom as your wedding venue.

Choose the perfect dress and bridal party attire - Since the 1920′s are roaring again, you won’t have a hard time finding a wedding dress to suit your theme.  Most wedding gown designers have added this style to their 2013 collections due to movies like “The Great Gatsby” and hit mini series, “Downton Abbey.”

Pearls!  Rhinestones! and Fur Wraps - Create authentication with strings of pearls draped over your neck and cover up at night with a beautiful fur (or faux fur) wrap.  These small details will add to the glamor of the evening.

With so much effort going into throwing an unforgettable wedding, don’t forget to have it all captured on film by using a professional wedding videographer, like DSVP of course.  Enough about us, what about you?  How do you feel about the 1920′s wedding style making it’s comeback in 2013?  Please tell us below:

Wedding Videos – Online or not Online?

We live in a digital world. We are connected via Facebook, Twitter, PinInterest, LinkedIn and more to the social networks of our loved ones and friends – we know when they get up, are late for work, when they get engaged or start a relationship even when a relationship ends. However, how should you go about posting your wedding movies on the web?

Video Professionals, like DSVP, will make sure your day is caught in all its splendor and the end product will be a beautifully crafted digital remembrance of the happy day. You can watch, and re-watch, as many times as you want. That being said does the world want to watch it?

YouTube has 1,838,292 wedding videos – a quick search of comments sees the community of trolls is unfortunately alive and well. Do you want your day digitally memorialized on YouTube for millions of nobodies to post unflattering comments about you, your other half and your family?

What about Facebook? More people tend to post online via facebook than YouTube. This is predominantly due to the closed network that Facebook creates. Only your ‘friends’ have access to the video. So what can go wrong? A lot of people have found that the videos can start family feuds. Some have reported that wedding videos on Facebook as a part of their divorce case.

Finally, what about Twitter? Twitter is more open than Facebook but more reliable than YouTube. However, the public nature of the post means you are still the target of ‘trolls’. Many people have had to block individuals after posting videos due to unflattering comments.

What to do? Film it – get a professional like DSVP – and keep and treasure the digital memory of your wedding. However, when it comes to posting it online, take a moment and consider the impact it might have on you, your loved ones and your wider family.

3 Ways to Use Your Wedding Theme

Many couples want a theme for their wedding, but don’t really know what to do with it once they’ve chosen one. Having a theme can give your wedding an added bit of interest and can make some parts of planning easier, as you have something to refer back to.

  1. Entertainment: Having wedding entertainment to match your theme can be a great way to reinforce it. Whether it’s music to match an era or a video that shows you and your fiancé in a theme-related scenario, it can be fun for your guests.
  2. Décor: Deck your venue out in thematic pieces to bring the idea to life. Consider basic pieces like patterned table cloths, as well as larger props.
  3. Food: Tying your menu into your theme is another great idea. The theme can be subtle, such as giving each dish a theme-related name, or obvious, such as a seafood buffet for a nautical theme.
