Your wedding will be one of the most unforgettable days of your life. You’ll look back on it in years to come and remember it as if it were yesterday. Even though it’s going to be memorable on its own, you can make it more so. There are so many fun and cute things you can do to create memories of your wedding. They’re great for both you as a couple and your guests. If you’re stuck for ideas, maybe you’ll like the idea of a new trend: marryoke.
What is marryoke though? It sounds like a bride and groom karaoke performance, and in some ways it is. Marryoke is when you and your guests get together to make a video to one of your favourite songs. Everyone sings along and has a great time. And the whole thing gets edited into a sleek and professional video. And don’t worry if your guests are terrible singers. They’ll just be lip-syncing to the real song.
If you’re looking for a way to impress your guests and get everyone to participate in your wedding, marryoke is on the rise. Search YouTube for marryoke and you’ll find videos with millions of views. Of course, more people will watch your video if it’s got One Direction in it. You don’t have to have an internationally famous boy band on hand though. You could still end up having tens of thousands of people watching the fun from your big day. This is the age of viral weddings, and yours could end up being one of them.
Marryoke might not be suited to shy and retiring families. But if you know your guests are up for a good time, they can give your wedding that unique thing you’re looking for. Some people go for songs about love and relationships. From Call Me Maybe to The Proclaimers’ I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles). But you can choose anything you want, especially if it’s about having a good time. Newlyweds have made videos using I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off. They’ve even done the infuriatingly catchy Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen.
In recent years, engaged couples have started looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. They want something that says their wedding is unique, just like their relationship. The way we share our weddings with everyone has changed too. Before we might have shown everyone our photo album or perhaps a video. But now couples want something they can post on Facebook or YouTube. Being able to put memories from your wedding online means you can share it all over the world. Anyone who couldn’t make it to the wedding gets a “highlights package” through marryoke.
If you’re going to have a wedding video made, why not set it to music? A marryoke video is fun to make and to watch. You’ll have something to remember the day by for years to come. And anyone can view it whenever they want.
