Selecting songs for your wedding video
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!
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
Documentary Style = speak to your Wedding Director
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 if you have audio because lyrics can be distracting during this portion of the video.
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.
If you'd like to have our editors choose songs that flow well with your footage, you can select that as an option.
We are happy to help with any questions you have about the song selection process
