Songs make such an incredible impact on the feel of your wedding video!  They set the tone for the clips, evoke emotion, and add even more  personality  to the story of your big day.  If you would like to, we would love for you to choose the songs that will make this video truly yours.  We also give you the option of deferring the selection to our  amazingly talented  editing team.  They have a lot of experience with wedding videos and can choose songs that will compliment the video clips of your big day.  It's up to you!  If we don't hear from you before your wedding day, we will assume that you would like the editing team to choose your songs.

 

Whichever route you choose, just be aware that copyright laws are very strict regarding the use of music in wedding videos.  To play fair and keep us all out of legal trouble, we must be able to purchase a license to all of the songs we use in your video.  But don't worry, we we have subscriptions to four different music sites from which you may select your songs! You don't need to download anything, just let us know what you decide!  You can either send your Event Manager a quick text or put them directly into your Personal Wedding Details Page.  

 

The number of songs you choose depends on the length of your coverage:

4+ hrs of video coverage = 6+ min video |  2 songs 

8+ hrs of video coverage = 8+ min video | 3 songs

10+ hrs of video coverage = 10+ min video | 4 songs

As you are listening to the songs, keep in mind....

  • For the beginning soundtrack, we recommend something in the "Instrumental Love" category.  These are slower and have a sentimental/romantic feel.  Instrumental is best here because lyrics can be distracting during this portion of the video, and there is often recorded audio of vows or reading letters.  Lyrics tend to "fight" recorded audio and make listening to your vows or letter reading difficult.

  • For the ending soundtrack, an upbeat, fun song fits well - this one can have lyrics, but it can also be instrumental

  • If your wedding video will have 3-4 songs, we recommend selecting a transition song that bridges the beginning and ending soundtrack.

  • If the song listed below is on Fyrfly, it's necessary to search for it because that website won't link to specific songs.

Ending

Transition Songs


If your coverage time is 8-10 hours, you'll need one transition song, and if your coverage time is 10+ hours, you'll need two transition songs.  We can vary the order of the songs.  For example, you may want to start the video with a lyrical love song and then use an instrumental love song as the second song.  It's okay too if you choose a song from each category and ask the editing team to choose the best order.

we are happy to help
Your event manager is happy to help with any questions you have about the song selection process.  Just to keep it simple, here are the steps:

  1.   Know the # of songs you need to select

  2.   Think about where you want recorded audio in your video

  3.   Think about the overall feel you want for your video

  4.   Listen to different song options

  5.   Choose your songs

  6.   Go to your Personal Wedding Details Page (link found in an email from your event manager), find the song section down at the bottom, and click on the "Select Song" button to add each song.  You can also put any notes about the songs in the "Special Instructions" field.

Or, if you'd like to skip all that, just go to your Wedding Details Page, and in the song section, check the box "Please have editing team select songs for my video."
