How to Make a Wedding Video in 3 Easy Steps with VidDay
Invite Friends, Family, and Loved Ones
It's time to get inviting.
After you've set up your account and created an event page to celebrate the special wedding day or proposal for that couple or your partner, send an invitation out to their friends, family, and all of their loved ones that want to get in on the celebration.
Invite as many people as you wish — the more, the more powerful your video will be.

All of the video clips and pictures are collected in your VidDay account for you.
Everything is displayed on your Wedding Event Page. Here is where you can drag and drop the photos and videos in any order you want. You can also add in-text cards, choose your themes, background music, and edit any pictures or videos you want.
Don't worry — no editing skills are required, and you can edit as much or as little as you want.
Share the Surprise!
It's time for us to work our magic.
VidDay will create your memorable wedding video montage. Once you're ready, send the surprise video to the lucky recipient.
You can share your VidDay Wedding Video via email — copy and paste the link and send it to them and all of their friends and family. Or, for that proposal, stream it onto your TV or computer to watch it together as a couple. And, of course, share the video on social media! Share the video during their wedding party and gather all their loved ones to give them a gift full of memories.
We love seeing people's reactions. Send us a video clip of your partner or the special couple's reaction to firstname.lastname@example.org — it's what we love the most about our job! Don't forget to tag them and us.

Wedding Video Ideas
Propose to the one that you love with a video wedding proposal. It's the best way to bring all of your parents' friends and family into one video.
Have your friends and family submit video clips on why they love you two as a couple or their fondest memory of you as a couple. Or create a slideshow of you and your partner throughout your relationship.
Use our lovely text cards for popping the big questions for the end of the video! Have them say yes, yes, yes with tears of joy.
Sending Best Wishes
Have everyone send a wedding video message with their wedding wishes for the special couple. Whether they can make it to the wedding or not, everyone can participate!
Not sure what to say in a wedding video?
Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered. It can be hard to know what wedding greetings, wedding wishes, or wedding messages you should say to someone you care for on their wedding day. This is what we love to do — helping you find those oh-so-perfect words for anyone in your life! Generate some wedding greetings.
Newlyweds will appreciate everyone's video well wishes and photos when they cozy up post-honeymoon for a thoughtful look at their beautiful video gift that everyone participated in — spreading love.
Send the couple off in holy matrimony.
Wedding Day Stories!
During the wedding reception, ask guests to upload their wedding videos expressing how much they love the couple and how much fun they are having at their wedding.
They can also give the bride and groom some marriage advice or wish them a happy future together! Then over the next day or two, you go through the videos to put them in order.
Send it to the bride and groom as a keepsake from their wedding day. A gift they will cherish forever.
Tips on How to Make a Wedding Video
Plan it Out
Before you begin, think about how you'll want to organize your wedding video.
Will this be for a proposal or the big wedding day? Will the videos and photos be chronological, starting from when you first met? Or do you want to show their progression from childhood until now?
You can do it all with our drag-and-drop video editors on your VidDay Event Page.
Think of the flow you want to create and drag and drop away!
Edit Your Wedding Video
Make sure your submissions are the right length.
Is there dead air?
Is there space left at the end?
Don't worry. You can trim off the excess in our video editor. Or, if you want, we can take care of that for you! Just let us know.
We recommend breaking up your wedding videos with pictures. We recommend adding three photos before or after a two-minute video. It's not a hard rule, just something we like, but get creative and see what you want.
Choose a Cover Photo
Select a wonderful photo of that special bride and groom for a cover photo.
This photo is on all of your submission invitations. It helps to add a personal touch for those you want to participate. If you can't find enough images on your own, ask your friends and family to upload their favorite photos of the bride and groom.
Wedding Video Editing Tips & Tricks
Personalize the Wedding Video
VidDay lets you match the Bride and Groom's personality with a selection of beautiful themes. Choose any theme that matches their wedding colors or choose one that matches the couple's taste and personality — add in some text cards to make a smooth progression.
Add bright colors and a fun theme for that fun-loving Bride and Groom, or keep it more neutral for a more elegant feel for the more serious kind of wedding. Give your video the pizzazz it deserves. From our most popular Collage Theme to our Watercolor theme. There are many to choose from that will fit everyone's tastes.
Check out our themes here.
Photo and Video Editors
All video clips and photo uploads will be stored on your VidDay Event Page. You can edit and adjust these photos and video clips from here with our VidDay editor.
You can edit off extra time off a video, flip and rotate or leave them just the way they are. Make your Wedding Video gift a little more special by choosing filters for photos and crop them how you see fit.

Choose the Best Wedding Music
Pick a tune that strikes the right mood or makes you think of that happy day. Whether you want a feel-good kind of theme or some classic charm, our music library allows you to choose any type of background music that suits the personality of that special couple.
