Create a Slideshow or a Movie

Pictures capture emotions and movies capture them even better! A very creative way to look back at the beautiful journey the couple has undertaken - a slideshow or a short film, is a great way to get all the memories flowing. Add a sweet melody or song and the slideshow will surely stir the old feelings and freshen up the lovely past moments. There are a certain things to keep in mind while preparing a slideshow or a video:

  • The video/slideshow should not be too long, or it might lose its essence and effect. Try to choose appropriate music, something that everyone would like, especially not something that someone might hate.

  • Sort the events in the video/slideshow in a chronological order and organise them so that the length and the pace both are in the right range.

Nowadays slideshows serve as a powerful means which take you to places where you ache to be again. They are like time machines that take you in the past and relive the long lost memories once more.

Pick a Venue That Matches Their Personalities

A quality media might be an excellent way to grab the attendees’ attention, but is it enough to set the right mood and feeling? Experts say no. It also takes the right venue and place to set the mood and get the party going. Several things have to be considered when selecting the right place to celebrate – the location accessibility, cost, services included and of course, the personalities of the couple are the most important factors. Additionally, the venue can be related to some past event in their life, like the first place they met, or the site of their first date, or maybe someplace where they have always wanted to go. Another way to select an apt venue for the event is to look at the interests of the couple. If they are a movie fan or have always loved history, a theatrical theme place or a museum hall might be the way to go.
