For their Palm Springs wedding, Shanelle and Kareem really went all out. They set the mood for their wedding perfectly with a glamorously styled engagement shoot beforehand, and then a vibey and oh-so-sexy save the date video. The two vibes of these shoots let guests know immediately what kind of wedding weekend they were in for. One that was sensual, cool as can be, and dressed to the nines. Watch Shanelle and Kareem’s video below and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about!

Setting the vibe early for your guests is a major reason why more couples are choosing a save the date video over a regular invite. It’s the best way to give your loved ones a tiny peek into your love story, your personality, and the amazing event you have planned.

Let Your Guests Get to Know Your Fiancé

Show off your fiancé in the best way possible! I love how these videos showcase your relationship so much more than just a photoshoot. Your guests will love seeing how you interact and your most genuine smiles.

Just like you saw above, you can style this video however you like. This is a chance to tell a story – your story! Take your save the date video at home or in a place you both love. Let us capture shots of you doing things that connect you and your fiancé!

You can even take this a step further by including interview clips or voiceovers about your meet cute. Here at the Siren & Co, we loved getting creative with the best way to show your personality, your unique interests, and your love. 

You can see a fun example of this in my very own save the date video, filmed by our team, here!

Your Guests are More Likely to RSVP After Receiving a Save the Date Video

When I say that save the dates are more memorable, it’s not just because they are fun to watch. Your guests are more likely to RSVP right away when they are sent the link to your video and wedding website. Or if they don’t respond right then, they will be able to easily access your link when they are ready, without the stress of misplacing an RSVP card and mailing it back.

Meet Your Videographer Before Your Wedding Day

Finally, my favorite reason that I mentioned in a recent post. These adventure sessions are the best place to meet your videographer in advance and get comfortable in front of the camera. Getting your filming nerves out well before your wedding is priceless. I want you to feel your best, get in the wedding mood, and have some stunning shots months before the big day!
