For the shorter highlight video, our videographer chose “God Gave Me You” which was fine with us. Highlight video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr_r4agCnM4

We also got a longer video to include our personalized vows and more of the ceremony.  The videographer chose a piano song in the background for the vows / ceremony part, which was fine with us because we were talking over it for most of the time.  Then we chose Sister Hazel’s “This Kind of Love” for the reception part. Longer video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjJmcYSnWxc&t=544s  

We got both of these videos for a grand total of $500. Yay for booking amateurs! ๐Ÿ™‚

I like the song you chose a lot — it’s very upbeat! 

Be sure to discuss music licensing with your videographer and establish who will be paying to get the songs licensed for publishing on youtube, etc.

“Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” by Starship…


We also have a 30 minute cinematic highlight video in the works where we choose songs for intro, bride/groom prep, ceremony, photoshoot, reception etc…

No idea how much it was.  It was part of our photography/cinematography package which we paid $10K+ for.

Music was hugely important to me and the thing I got organised first for our wedding. 

So I was a little bit miffed when we were told that due to rights reasons for the video short we had to chose from two websites. There were thousands of tracks on them but only one of the songs that was on my list.

Thats ‘home’ by Philip Philips. So that made the choice very straightforward! Here’s our highlights  


So just check with your videographer what’s permissible. We could have our full chosen tracks for the main DVDs. We just had a limited choice for the short trailer.

Literally just figured this out today! I think we’re doing All of Me by John Legend and From the Ground Up by Dan and Shay. He said to pick two for our highlight. 

What will be fun is picking the 12-15 we need for our video lol
