Memories – marriage is for a lifetime.
Your wedding is a special moment. So, how to make my wedding memories stay for a lifetime.
Rule 1) Be authentic
Be yourself to your future husband, to your family and to your guests. They will all feel this and give their true feelings back to you.
Rule 2) Celebrate your Love
This is about celebrating your love between you and your beloved one. You do not do this for your family, your guests nor someone else.
So, celebrate it your way!
Rule 3) Be present
There has been so many preparation going on, so many expectations from yourself and others being put on you, so many advise given. But NOW is NOW. Open your heart, focus your thoughts and be present.
With these three basic rules, you empower your brain to store these moments in your long time memory, which is the part of the brain that keeps information forever.
But be smart, to get them out of your long-time memory you need associations. They can be best triggered by pictures, sound and meaning. So, a great medium to jog your memory is video.
Review and re-live memories soon after to outsmart your brain!
What scenes should I keep in my wedding video?
- Getting ready for the special day (how you get dressed, how you smell the wedding bouquet or alike)
Tipp: Make it slightly sexy
- Catch footage from all venues (church, hotel, reception area, dinner, bar)
Tipp: Show before and after scenes or even prepartion
- Follow the protocol of the ceremony. So, you need the vows, the kiss, exchange of rings and alike.
Tipp: Catch the emotions not the scene as such. Also show family and guest reactions.
- Include family and guest interactions during the day
Tipp: This is what creates the bonding and special atmosphere
- Watch out for scenes that are unique to this wedding
Tipp: a music live band, little kids playing bride and groom, a little mistake
Emotion Tipp #1
Speak out your thoughts and deep feelings for your beloved one. Just, record a love letter or poem and use it as your individual soundtrack.
