Save the Date Videos: Let Your Wedding Day be a Box Office Smash

“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close up.”  Sunset Boulevard

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!

  1. I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very pleased that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing regarding this.

  2. Grace & Devin — LOVE THIS ONE! So adorable and memorable. Its the only one of the dates I actually remember.

    Beyonce wannabee’s… give props to that girl for being brave enough to be booty shakin’ in a bodysuit.

    Movie Trailer Madness… the reference to an open bar should be a gaurantee that 100% of your invited guests will attend — and maybe a few crashers too!

    Mary… videos are cute ideas but you can’t really plop it on your fridge so that you actually remember the date — and I doubt that invitees will watch the video over and over again… unlike your brilliant magnet that all your guests got to gaze at for months before the big day:)
