Need Help Picking Music for Your Wedding Video!?
Updated: Jan 5
Things to consider when picking music for your wedding video:
Make sure the music fits the mood and tone of your wedding. If you had a formal, traditional wedding, you'll want to choose music that reflects that. If your wedding was more casual and laid-back, you can choose music that is more relaxed and upbeat.
Choose music that is meaningful to you and your partner. This can be a song that has special significance to your relationship, or a song that simply makes you both happy.
Does it have an instrumental version? During the editing process it's nice to transition between the songs' lyrical version and instrumental version. Having this option available we can seamlessly shift from song lyrics to sound clips of vows and speeches while preserving the flow of music and not have too much going on with song lyrics and talking happening simultaneously.
Think about the lyrics of the song. You'll want to choose music with lyrics that are appropriate for a wedding video. "Whiskey Glasses" by Morgan Wallen is a nice sounding song, however the context of the lyrics is about breaking up and drinking away the pain, so I usually advise against songs like that!
Consider the length of the music. You'll want to choose music that is long enough to fit the length of your video, but not so long that it becomes repetitive or tedious.
Of course your videographer will also be able to help and make suggestions when it comes time to edit everything!
