Have you heard of the latest wedding video trend? Marryoke is a great way to add some stress-busting good times to your wedding day and make memories you and your guests will enjoy for a lifetime! If you’ve never heard of marryoke, it’s a music video filmed on your wedding day with the guests, wedding party and bride and groom lip-syncing along with a chosen song. The song is added into the video during the editing process so it sounds great and matches up seamlessly.

You’ll want to choose a song well ahead of time so any key singers you’ll want in the video have a chance to learn the song well enough to lip-sync along. Keep in mind that it’s fine if they sing during filming because it will make the lip-syncing look more natural, and the song will be added later.
When choosing your song, pick one that you and your guests can have fun with! The song will be recorded throughout the day of your wedding, and won’t require a ton of time from each participant, making it easy on your and your guests and it won’t interfere with the photography.

Make sure your guests know ahead of time you’d like them to participate in making your wedding even more special and memorable by doing their part in the marryoke video. If you give them forewarning, they’ll be more likely to be willing to participate. If anyone specifically requests to be excluded, make sure to let your wedding videographer know. However, most people will be more than happy to make your day even more amazing.
Choose a professional wedding videographer with plenty of experience to make sure your wedding music video turns out as wonderfully as you deserve it to. Because marryoke is a rather new trend, many experienced videographers may have never had an opportunity to make these kinds of wedding music videos. That doesn’t mean you should exclude them. Rather, consider their overall video experience and passion for making your special day amazing. LynkzStudio will be doing at least one marryoke this year, and would love the opportunity to help you add this fun treat to your wedding memories package!
Just imagine watching your marryoke video on your 20th anniversary and seeing what a blast your big day turned out to be for everyone. Forget about only doing the old classic video of the blushing bride slowly coming down the aisle, and instead add the exciting fun of all of your favorite people celebrating your wedding dancing and lip-syncing to your favorite song.
