Why a wedding video is a better wedding gift than pots & pans!
Traditional wedding gifts are in general boring & predictable. The wedding gifts of yesteryear like pots and pans or trusty white goods or appliances are no longer needed, with many couples now living together before marriage they already have everything they need! We look at why a wedding video could be the most ever lasting and emotive gift you could give...
Pots & Pans
A survey of over 12,000 women aged 15-44 between 2006 and 2010 showed that approximately half (48 percent) of women cohabitate prior to marriage (Copen, Daniels, & Mosher, 2013). This number is up from 34 percent in 1995.
Who needs a silver engraved fork anyway?
So in the old days the latest coffee maker, food processor or stainless steel toaster would have been a blessing, today whilst it maybe welcomed it is more likely to hit the shelves of the nearest charity shop or make a swift appearance back on the retail market on Sphock or the latest boot sale app. Engraved silverware, picnicware, glasses or crystals probably won't cut it too...
A wedding video it is something you can revisit and use time and time again into the future vs the frying pan that falls apart after too many full english breakfasts.
A different kind of gift...
The photographer has probably already been booked and poised to go for the big day, all the other wedding planning is calmly under control and hopefully the budget! Then someone suddenly sees a contemporary wedding video online or comes across with envy their cousin's Norfolk wedding video just uploaded to Facebook for all the friends and family to see who couldn't make it such as Aunt Sarah who emigrated to Aus in the 90's.
Then like a lightning bolt someone shouts out ..."Why didn't we think of a wedding film?!"
