So far this year, I know of three weddings that I shall be going to. As such I am expecting at least three invitations to be popping themselves through my front door at various points in the next few months or so. I’m sure that all of these invites will be beautifully hand written, and printed on high quality paper as you would expect, not particularly ‘Gadgety‘ in any way.
Now I’m sure that you have seen various videos on the internet of couples wanting to make their ‘Special Day’ that little bit more unique, with some of the lengths they go bordering on the tasteless. Yep, the video of the couple having their first dance to “Baby Got Back” I’m looking at you! I can’t help but think that a lot of these couples will look back at their wedding DVD with more than a tinge of embarrassment. Somewhat like how I would imagine that octogenarian looks at that ill advised tattoo they had emblazoned somewhere particularly prominent about their person.
The video below however is, in my humble opinion, a work of genius. Apparently a video invitation sent out by the couple featured to their wedding guests and put together in the style of a movie trailer this stamps originality all over their special day, whilst being far enough removed so that their wedding day can be traditional, and minus any particularly gaudy embellishments so they will be able to look back on their DVD in the future without fear of any particularly cringe-worthy moments popping up. I mean, all the guests will be commenting on the awesomeness of your wedding invites, but by the time the actual wedding comes around still be able to honestly say how beautiful a day it was as the couple have needed to cheapen it at all.
