Yesterday, a girlfriend at work (whaaaduup, Nat!) asked me if I saw the Early Show on CBS that featured a couple’s Save the Date video… I was like, “Whhhhaaaaa? A video?? For their save the date? That’s incredible!”
Incredible, I came to realize, was the understatement of the century. After perusing through a few YouTube videos last night, I became a woman possessed. Save the Date videos have been around for awhile, and over the course of time, they’ve become - among other things - a force to be reckoned with. So, reckon, I shall.
When I featured the blog post about the Mister & Me’s Save the Date Magnets, I have to admit, I was pretty impressed with myself and our pre-invitation mailers. Armed with my Adobe Photoshop skills, I created something original in design and unique to us, and while I’m still proud of our little save the dates, I’d be lying if I said they weren’t dwarfed by the awesomeness of these videos.
Just like every couple is different, so were the videos they directed. Dead sere, I saw everything! Some couples treated it like a movie trailer to a big ticket event; while others stuck with the more traditional video / picture montage approach. In the end, however, it didn’t matter if they were telling story, being romantic or simply downright ridiculous, because with the conclusion of each video came the knowledge to Save the Date! Below are some of the standout examples: ENJOY!
